Three Kings

Three Kings
It was worth traveling to Jaisalmer to get these Safari suits made. It was also worth taking the wireless remote for me D700

Holy man with spike through his cheek


I met this man on the beach in Goa, when I asked him why he had a pushed the spike through his face he replied "It was good for the tourists". India is never what you expect

Almost finished another project

After six weeks of hanging out with elderly bachelors ever week, this coming Friday is my last day shooting with them in Guirys. I'm quite nostalgic about it already as they are some of the loveliest and most gentle people I have ever met. What is certain they are part of an Ireland that is fast disappearing. Next Friday I hope to get two more final shots and then the essay is complete. I a bit torn as to whether to have the set all black and white or mix with colour. But I think I'll have to go with the former

Ha'penny bridge at night

I've been doing stock shots of late. It's a good way to practice technique and learn the vast amount of settings on the D700. I don't normally post stock photos but I quite like this one.
