Last OctoberI took a trip to Inis Mór with my friend Chikako! The only camera I had available was the iPhone, so that’s what I used :D Here are the results, hope you like them :)
Not my usual style, and something I haven’t done in a while! Took a walk around Eyre Square and Shop St. in the sun, looking for some character!

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.
I decided to make a review video of my year 2011 – it turned out to be a much tougher and more arduous process than I first thought- I went through thousands of clips to condense everything into one three minute video. I’d like to thank everyone who tolerated my constant ducking behind a lens this last year- I hope to do even bigger and better things in 2012!
The course over, I’m on my way back to Galway when I come across this landscape. There was no way I wasn’t going to fire off a few shots!
Okay, so last night’s effort wasn’t bad, but I thought I could do better… there’s a road and a lake near Kylemore where the trees make a neat tunnel… I thought that being inside that tunnel would give the best effect, but it turns out I had a sunset on one side and the rising harvest moon on the other, so I was able to go to the lake shore and get something better. Hope you enjoy.
I finally finished my Japan slideshows and presented them at Galway Camera Club. Here are the videos!
Part 1 of my Japan trip- a few pics from over Siberia and Japan, then from Day 1 in Shinjuku
Some Day Shots from my week in Tokyo
Night Shots from my Japan trip – Tokyo Tower , Shinjuku and a bit of Harajuku
At the start of my southward Journey I stopped off at Kawaguchiko for some R&R in a real Ryoukan and some Fuji Photography. I froze my *butt* off waiting around long enough for the clouds to clear at sunset
Kyoto and Nara were my next stop, I spent four days in Kyoto and one in Nara, but was a bit unlucky with the weather…. still, I think I got some good shots out of it.
Next stop was Hiroshima, but before seeing the center of Hiroshima, I decided to do Miyajima first… spectacular!
I really enjoyed exploring Hiroshima, I wandered around the peace park and the riverside during the cherry blossom parties and just soaked in the atmosphere…
Only one evening in Nagasaki (on my way to Yakushima), so I spent it at the top of one of the surrounding mountains getting some night pics. Again, butt refrozen :D
My final call before heading for Tokyo for final farewells to my friends.
