I thought I would share a few photographs from a few days we had in Portrush.
When the weather is nice, this wee country is fab!
Rosie had a BALL on her first day at the beach, and we all had a much needed break away, sometimes a change of scenery is just what the Dr ordered :)
We had a lovely family day out in the “Big Smoke” today…
The kids were AMAZED at this sand sculptor, I think the wee ones still think the big dog was real…
Our lovely wee Labradoodle Rosie had her first walk at the Emerald Forest at the weekend…..of course I had to document the occasion!
I’m getting a chance to visit the archives, and edit some photos taken on our family holiday in the summer….
I just loved this early morning walk!
I recently had the pleasure of trying out the latest offering from Leica…the new M (type 240).
This was my first time using a true rangefinder, and it is definitely a totally different ball game from shooting with an SLR. In the early days I was used to the split-prism viewfinder focusing, where you find a vertical line near your desired point of focus, and adjust to suit, but the rangefinder focusing is different again. It certainly would require a lot of practice to be quick enough for focusing on the children in this house!
Anyway….I thought I would share this image, as I liked the feel of the busy city street….not every camera shop has such an interesting scene outside the door.
Here is a photograph I took some time ago, one I love, with a quick teaser thrown in for good measure :)
I love the way the red pillars and the windowsill frame the kids, although I love Black and White photography, some photographs just cry out to be displayed in colour.
The boys were oblivious to me at this point, but a second later they were all smiling and posing for the camera! I much prefer this shot though.
So….can anyone guess the shop?
This was such a lovely moment. The wee girl on the left had just wakened up in the other room, and had come in to see what was happening.
I went out to the front garden today to try to photograph a gorgeous butterfly on the Buddleia, and I turned to see the twins trying to spot it too….
“Where did the Butterfly go?”
Well, at long last I have managed to get a website theme that I like, so how better to kick off the blog here than with a few photos.
Here are a few from a family party that I think display my favourite style of photography, that of blending in to the background, and looking for those special moments, rather than posing and setting up a shot. Of course there is a place for that too, but I just love those magic moments.
This is our twins enjoying the party food…
As you can see I love black and white photographs!
