Blaaaa

Before heading off to Germany for a week (I’m going to Elgersburg, near Ilmenau), let me post an image that I took last year, also in Germany. A bunch of friends from uni got together and we went on a small canoe tour on the river Havel, photos here. While readying our canoe on the […]

I [Heart] You

Let me tell you a little story: The story behind my latest photographic “creation”. I was pondering for two weeks about another photo-assignment, this time on the topic hart (as in, the German word for “hard”). After a while I came up with Hässlich Aber Richtig Teuer, which means “ugly, but really expensive”. I was […]

Unexpected stock

Today’s photo has been taken at a Poetry Slam in Stuttgart, just over a year ago. I was visiting Steffi (who was doing her internship at the time) and we had decided to go to one of the slams in the Rosenau which that hosts them regularly. I took a few pictures at the event, […]

Sugar Loaf

Last Sunday a bunch of colleagues and Steff&I went on a little hike to the “Great Sugar Loaf“. It is (by orders of magnitude) less impressive than the real deal, but it makes for a very nice hike (provided it’s a nice day ;-)). After a bit of random walking and not really finding where […]

Old Folks

Here’s one of my earlier photos, after I had gotten my first DSLR. I shot this photo (secretly) in one of my favourite pubs in Dublin, the JJ Smyth’s. Its upstairs part is fairly famous, being one of the main Jazz locations in the city; there are small gigs almost every day, and every now […]

Your Morning

The previous post inspired me to write about this picture here. (Eggs => breakfast => “Your Morning”, an assignment given pretty much exactly a year ago by the Digital Photography School Blog.) It was shot, again, for an assigment. At the time I was still living in my dull student flat on campus, and my […]

Eggspert

Reminiscent of my strobist ambitions a while back here’s a photo I shot recently for the HappyShooting assigment “weich“. The idea was to show a boiled egg dropping onto the ground and shedding its skin. So I boiled an egg, peeled it very carefully, arranged the skin and dropped the egg onto it. The overall […]

St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! If Google has a special logo for today, I should also make a special entry. For that reason, the rest of this post will be in green! Having been to the Dublin St. Patrick’s parade twice (2007, 2008) I wasn’t too keen on going into town again this year. The […]

Event photos

Having taken the promotional shots for “Remembering Rose”, I also went to one of the performances to take some photos of the “action”. In one word: Awesome. A really great play / script / performance altogether. I really hope this play has a “future” beyond three performances here in Maynooth. But I heard that they […]
