More Sultans in Blackrock

The Sultan in Blackrock

The Sultan stall in Blackrock Village has to be my favourite. I love their food, it’s always agreed with me and boy is it tasty. This is a photo I took last March when it was a lot colder but the guys were still cheerful. Today Taoufik was cooking and produced a delicious 3 meat combo for me! I would have taken a photo of that but, eh, I was too busy eating it so you’ll just have to find him yourself and order it or head into the Sultan restaurant on Penrose Wharf!

Niall O’Carroll playing the harmonica in Emmett Place, probably a couple of years ago. I posted a more recent photo of him when he was playing in Blackrock village earlier this month.

Of sticks and Stones

Just fooling around on the beach at Fennell’s Bay this evening with some long exposure shots of the tide. It’s not something I’d ever done much of and not something I find particularly interesting but I’m always willing to try something new and curious to find out more about it. It’s probably the most relaxing photography you can do, apart from clambering over rocks in an attempt to get at the bigger waves..

I’m glad I remembered the Canon 6D has an optional ISO50 setting. That got me a 1/3 of a second extra exposure before the sun set! 🙂
