Connemara Road Trip!

The Maam valley, Connemara

My friend Funatsu came back to Ireland this week for a few days of sightseeing, so I decided a little tour of Connemara was in order! I borrowed a camera and some nice glass from Neil Warner and took Funatsu and Hannae on a whistle-stop tour!

For Savita : Never Again

Original file available for download at : http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10685/For%20Savita.mp4 (right-click and hit ‘Save As’)

This is the hardest edit I’ve ever had to make. This video footage was recorded on the 17th of March 2011 as the Galway’s small Indian Community took part in the St Patrick’s Day Celebrations, and later as Ireland mourned the death of Savita Halappanavar; an outstanding ambassador for her home country and someone who will be sorely missed.

Never again.

A Very Roman Snowstorm

I was lucky enough to spend a very special weekend in Rome this year- when I was packing my bags there were warnings of severe weather on the news, and sure enough on my first full day in the Italian capital (during which I had a business meeting) the snow descended on the city.

Blackrock Divers

Blackrock Diving from Christopher Tierney on Vimeo.

If the temperatures are anything to go by it would seem that Summer has arrived in Ireland. One of the principal Galwegian summer rituals is a swim at the diving board at Blackrock. One of the most popular municipal facilities (and probably the single most photographed object) in Galway, the diving tower hosts hundreds if not thousands of swimmers on days like these. I packed up my waterproof camera cover plus the Canon 550D and a Sigma 17-70 and finned my way into position using a pair of diving fins for extra maneuverability
