Had a shoot a few weeks ago with the incredibly talented dancer Alex Le Moss who leaped for me and danced for me on the jagged rocks of Killiney beach. We were so lucky with the weather on this day. Alex was just incredible :)

Feeding Time

More birds, yes. Working by the sea means there are endless amounts of seagulls about so it’s impossible to not take a photo of at least one. Given that I take hundreds of photos daily, that ‘one’ comes around a lot sooner then later, ha!

The young grey fluffy one I’ve watched slowly grow from an extremely young chick into what it is now. I tried to get that guy to come closer to the camera, but alas.. mother bird had to do.

Anywho, late home again and a long relaxing bath won over processing and post time. Should have gotten it up sooner but tomorrow is another day… and another day without work. Yeeeow :)

Scene of the Crime

Last night my internet went before I could put up this post which took me ages to do. Was too tired to stay up and wait for the internet to magically decide to fix itself and work, but here it is none the less. Woo!

I took these on the way to work and It’s the place my camera got robbed last week. I simply had to return at some point as it has one hell of a view and the morning light was better then any. Good thing I went snap happy early too as work filled my day and didn’t come across much I haven’t snapped and shared already.

Now that I have a camera back to continue my documentation of my summer life in San Francisco you’d think everything would run smoother then ever. Bad luck over and all that jazz, right?! Well, no. Latest fiasco in my adventure tales is, I am now currently dealing with a fraudulent card case on my Irish bank account. Yep, serious!!

Got blocked out of online banking last week and so called back to Ireland to sort that out. I thought must have had an epic retarded moment where I forgot my pin that I’d had for years. Didn’t think I could have been that stupid but thought, well, I’ts the only explanation. That was until I found a bill that was far beyond anything I had spent or had at all. Called back to the bank and questioned what this was all about. They asked if I was abroad in which I obviously answered yes. I am in San Francisco. The banker then replied some what puzzled and asked this time if I’d bought anything online recently. I explained not a chance since I have rent and other travel expenses to be dealing with. That is when she replied with, well, the transaction was made in great British pounds!

At this moment I strangely felt extremely lucky that I’d transferred most of my funds over to my American account. What’s strange is I’ve had my card on my the whole time. Someone got hold of my information to make that transaction. Scary eh!! Anywho, it shows just how important it is to watch all information about your details just as much as your card.

Hope now this string of bad luck is over, but to be fair, it has been ballenced nicely with some of the good kind :)

Warf at Sundown

HELLS YEAH… a camera is now in my possession again. Thanks to my mother who’s given me a loan, photos can continue daily. Dept is totally worth it and can’t wait to share more of them with you :)

Today I was in work all day which was a killer, ha. Picked up the camera this morning, second hand, and then had to wait till the end of my shift to play. Once work was over I walked to the end of Pier 39 and took photos of the sunset which gleamed beams upon the sea. The day was glorious which forced tourists and locals too to gather around the sea lions and bask in the sun.

After I’d finished snapping away on the pier I began to walk back to the tram to return home. En route, I came across these artists which were simply incredible. One made the most beautiful paintings with spray cans while the other painted pure artistry with a paintbrush in his mouth. Completely inspirational.

In work for the next few days so a full adventure will have to wait. However I couldn’t be happier snapping away at those simple moments which now wont go forgotten.

Thanks billions for hanging on the last few days.. San Francisco adventures continues again :)

Red Sunset Sky

I already did a brief ‘Merry Christmas’ post with the jist of my day, but the best part of the day wasn’t the presents, or (dare i say it) the Christmas dinner, but the walk i went upon with my family.

When I was younger we used to always go for walks along this pier, so going back all together was a joy in itself. There was a warmish breeze and a freshness to the air too. We walked with the wind and once at the end sat briefly on a bench before turning around and heading back to save the turkey from any possible charcoal state.

On the way back down the pier to the car, the sun behind us began to go down. My sister and I turned back just looked at the sky and went, ‘Wow’. I began to rant how I wish I could capture the beautiful sky as each photo didn’t remotely encapsulate mother natures wonder. Then, after multiple setting changes and a few test shots I got it. The sunset in all its glory. Love it!

These are my favourite photos to date, along with them being the first batch of photos that are completely manual.. Aperture; check… Exposure; check… WHITE BALANCE; check ;)

I shall have another post of the drive home as it too resulted in sunset gems. Part Two will be up tomorrow or the day after… or at least before the world ends ;)

Until next time,
