On Friday night we went to see Paul Simon in the O2 here in Dublin. It took a little persuading from my side to get my boyfriend to join me. Have to admit, we certainly lowered the average age in the venue for the night.
Even though it was a very (maybe a little bit too much) calm night, audience and performance I enjoyed the concert. Below some photo’s and two video’s I took. They aren’t my best, but they are the best I could manage from way up the tribune with a zoom lens and a very high iso.
I guessed that zooming this much would make the handheld video’s a bit wobbly and it did but the sound is pretty good so I uploaded them anyway! The video was shot with my Canon EOS 500D.
I was a little bored yesterday. So I got a black garbage bag and put some glasses in sink. See here the result! Someday I’ll set up a proper installation with good lighting so I can increase the shutter speed some more :)
How do you ask if you can take a picture of someone? Sometimes you try to hold on to a handle, in a speeding bus, on a bumpy road smiling and waving your camera. I have to be honest, it was pure hope when I clicked the shutter at the time!
Kilmainham Goal is one of those attractions we keep taking our visitors to. I think it’s a nice place to learn a little about Dublin’s history. Luckily I can keep busy taking pictures now I’ve heard the story a few times…
