Restaurant

A restaurant on St Patrick Street in Cork has this architectural feature over it’s door. You’re either going to love the lomo+vignette+colour effect or you’re going to hate it. This is an experiment with the newly enhanced GIMP Lomo plugin I had originally updated to work with GIMP 2.4. Elsamuko has added a few nice […]

GIMP Lomo Plugin

This is a slighly modified version of an old GIMP Lomo plugin I’ve used for ages that will now work with the new GIMP 2.4 release thanks to some advice I remembered reading on the GIMP User mailing list. The original plugin is by Francois Le Lay but hasn’t been updated since 2005. It’s a […]

Expired Meter

Expired Meter An expired meter I spotted while we waited for a table to become free in a restaurant in San Francisco a few blocks from Union Square. Photo has been "cross processed" using the Curves tool. I created an S curve on the red and green channels, and then applied a lomo plugin for […]

Contax G1

Contax G1 This camera belongs to Alkos, who I met on Monday night and it’s what he shoots everything on his photoblog with. He and his girlfriend had gone to the bar and I decided I liked the draughts board pattern on the table and composed this still life.

Animal Care Society Collection

Animal Care Society Collection Volunteers from the Animal Care Society were out in force on Saturday collecting to raise funds. We bumped into Beamish and his owner and I forgot to ask her name, but hopefully she’ll see this picture as I gave her one of my cards. Beamish was lovely and very placid, perfect […]

The little red door

The little red door A small house is stuck between two larger buildings in Dingle, Co. Kerry. I’m not sure what caught my eye in the first place but I think it was the red door. Shot on a wet morning that brightened up after an hour of intense rain.

The lone daisy

The lone daisy A solitary daisy grows in front of a small house in Fountainstown. This was an interesting photo for me to take. I spotted the daisy while walking out the road but I didn’t stop to shoot it until returning. I’m glad I remembered it! I’m really happy with the way this came […]
