    When you see it …

    In an area of New Zealand called the Bay of Plenty, near Tauranga there is a town called Mount Maunganui.  Mount Maunganui is also the name of the huge extinct volcanic cone, 761 ft in height,  that somewhat dominates the town and is locally known simply as ‘The Mount’. We were just about to set […]

  • Parisenne Archways

    Parisenne Archways

    On a visit to Paris you can be guaranteed of having amazing subjects to photograph. The people, the architecture, the landmarks, night photography and much more. On one such visit, in the courtyard behind the Louvre Museum, I spotted an archway leading to a bridge and on into the distance. I liked the lines it […]

  • Montreal, Evening Street Scene

    Montreal, Evening Street Scene

    I thought I had finished posting photos of Canada when I found this one. I thought that the photo had potential so after a bit of editing I ended up with a version I was happy with. The shot itself was one which I took while walking past this area. Set the camera up on […]

  • View of Vieux-Québec (Old Quebec)

    View of Vieux-Québec (Old Quebec)

    Old Quebec is a very picturesque area with much to see and on a good day, has plenty to keep a photographer busy. I liked the sky in this, early in the day, before 10am so the sun wasn’t too high. The original is a lot wider than this but I heavily cropped the image […]

  • Quebec Boardwalk by Night

    Quebec Boardwalk by Night

    One of the main features of Old Quebec is The Château Frontenac and the vast boardwalk which sits in front of it. The boardwalk is a very busy thoroughfare during the day and especially at night. The dominant Château Frontenac is a now a luxury hotel in Vieux-Québec or Old Quebec which is currently operated […]

    Chinese Gardens in Montreal Botanical Gardens

    If you are in Montreal you must visit the Montreal Botanical Gardens. Highlight of these amazing gardens was the Chinese gardens and buildings. The vivid colours were striking with Greens and the reds from the buildings. In order not to white out the colours with the intense sun I found some shade and this allowed […]

  • Marché Bonsecours Montreal – A Second Version

    Marché Bonsecours Montreal – A Second Version

    I added a photo of Marché Bonsecours Montreal as part of my Project52 earlier this week but I have found an alternate version which might be of interest. I was taken earlier in the evening and from a slightly different angle. The sky is less red and it is easier to see the detail in […]

  • Photos from Toronto, Canada

    Photos from Toronto, Canada

    I have being working through some photos from Canada and I’m still on the Toronto area as I work through over 1,000 photos which I took while there. Toronto is a very nice city with lots to do in and around the city. I have put together some photos from the area which I like […]

  • Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, Canada – 28/Project 52

    Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, Canada – 28/Project 52

    I haven’t been updating the project52 recently as I was away in Canada and during the trip took a few snaps which will appear here on the blog and also on the Flickr Stream. Delighted to have some good weather to take photos, the typical Irish man in me would comment that it was a […]
