Hello again to everybody still persevering with my blog after almost 2 years of photography posts. I’ve finally managed to transfer my blog to a self hosted domain, so now you can look forward to a more personalised look to my blog with some important new features like video posts soon to materialise.
I’m still ironing out some kinks with the transfer so do bear with me if you encounter any problems with the new layout.
Now I’m armed with new my new camera and website, I’m going to be spending a lot more time in front of my computer getting to grips with video editing and tinkering with web design. So in order to make the most of some free time during a rare bout of decent weather, I thought I’d go looking for some delayed signs of the onset of this year’s disappointing spring.
And in fairness, I don’t think I did awfully bad.
I’ve decided to mess about with the shots of a tadpole that I found in our garden pond in Photoshop, because it’s good for a bit of practice, which I’m sure that you can see I’m in some need of. So please do forgive for breaking one of my own cardinal rules of photography by overindulging in some crass photo editing, but I can assure you that this shall remain a rare occurrence.
The rest are all straight out of the camera though, and I’ve even uploaded them in higher resolution to enhance your viewing pleasure and make the most of another benefit of self hosting my blog- the fact I don’t have to worry about running out of space with wordpress.com anymore.
Anyways, I hope that you enjoy the shots, alongside the new and hopefully improved website.
Feel free to leave any comments or suggestions.

Here’s another macro shot of a couple of caterpillars dining together on a yellow flower that seemed extremely popular with a huge amount of these quite bizarre looking insects on my walk up the coast yesterday.

Here’s one of my favourite shots that I’ve taken of Salthill from a few years ago when they used to put the big wheel up with the rest of the amusements overlooking the seaside. When the sun was going down there was always some great shots to be taken over the bay when it was still there, but alas now it’s no longer part of the funfair, which is a bit of a shame really. However, it does lend my photo some added resonance as an archival document of times past, so no complaints really.

I decided to take a break from my semi retirement from daily photo blogging in order to share some shots that I got last night from the Macnas Parade for the Galway Arts Festival 2012.
Macnas put on one hell of a show and the parade was great, although unfortunately the weather was far from it.
It’s a real challenger to take any kind of reasonable shots of a parade taking place under torrential rain after the sun has already set, but I did give it my best shot. And I do think that I managed to do the foolhardy participants and observers of the parade some amount of justice on a few occasions with some fairly decent shots, though I’ll let you be the judge of that.

Here’s a few shots of another nice looking Connemara Wildflower that yet again I can’t identify. I thought it was some kind of honeysuckle, but I ain’t much of a botanist, so if anyone out there knows, then give us a shout!
