Dublin Castle

What I miss about home is ... Dublin Castle. I get the creeps as I walk through its demesne, thinking of the past and what it must have been like to be there...

Shop Door Mosaics

What I miss about home is... shop door mosaics. They used to be part of the shopfront on so many shops; I remember them especially in chemists; set back between the stall risers on either side, they are largely a thing of the past as all possible space is given over to stock.

Lá Fhéile Pádraig...

What I miss about home is ... St Patrick's Day. Memories of the parade, a day off school, shamrock and a harp shaped badge on a piece of green ribbon...

Bratach na hÉireann
Not to mention, for those of us old enough... the pint of Guiness...

Train Journeys...

What I miss about home is... train journeys; to the city, to the seaside and daytrips during the long summer holidays. Marietta biscuits, Miwadi orange, Tayto crisps and if you were really lucky, a Cadbury's Snack. Happy memories of sand in the sandwiches and the sea air in our faces...
The Dart.

Seapoint and Blackrock

What I miss about home... is walks from Blackrock to Seapoint and the views toward the twin chimneys of Pigeon House power station in Dublin to the north and Dun Laoghaire to the south; watching the sea and the sky...

Saturday, 6 March 2010 is live!

I am very pleased to say that my new website 'The Infinite Moment', is now live! I have spent the last week getting the portfolio together, editing the photographs, writing the copy and burning the midnight oil. And I am shattered! But it was worth it.

I want to thank all those who helped make it happen and offered the encouragement that I needed to get it done; Catherine, Cein and Katy, my family and most consistent critics! Also to my good friend and photographer Glyn Dewis, who helped me no end!

Do drop in and have a look and let me know what you think!
