An abstract image of a Cotoneaster arbusculus through the use of camera motion during exposure. Another image from my developing ‘impression’ series.
An abstract image of a ‘Lionel Fortescue’ through the use of camera motion during exposure. Today I wanted to share how I am progressing in my pursuit of a photograph as an ‘impression’ of a time and place rather then ‘record’.
I had the opportunity over the weekend to spend the whole day with the camera on personal work and wow did I enjoy it. It’s been a waaaaay too long since I’ve had the chance to wander around with nothing to do but take pictures. I’ve been promising myself for a while now to produce something shall we say… less photographic!

The Strelitzia Reginae, also known as the Bird of Paradise Flower, indigenous to South Africa has been on my photographic list from the first time I saw it almost two years ago in our local Botanical Gardens here in Dublin.
I am currently traveling so this is a post I prepared last week and is being automatically published. Technology eh! its wonderful 🙂 I produced an image of this Orchid last year, in fact the image won a competition which I was delighted about. This is an even closer view of that incredible detail in…
I recently shared an image of a Hoverfly resting on a Black Eyed Susan taken on a trip to the Japanese Gardens in Kildare. Well this image was actually taken a full 12 months ago. I was spending a weekend in Cavan with some friends and we took a walk along a forest road and…
