In my free time, I am a photographer (or so they say), musician and songwriter and now a blogger. I live with my wife in Swords, North County Dublin, Ireland and travel the world at every possible opportunity (with a camera of course). A cyber security and data protection consultant by profession I am fortunate as I get to travel regularly and work with lots of different and interesting global organisations.
I especially like photographing people, animals and street scenes and do some commercial work too. This blog is a virtual home for some of my photography and possibly some random and not so random thoughts on music, books, gigs and places I visit. If you like what you see or would like a photograph please get in contact.
Let’s start here and see what happens…
– DD (October 2012)
I have been interested in photography from a very early age.
I can’t remember my first camera but I was probably about 12 years old when I first got interested in cameras and imagine it was a very cheap and basic camera not an SLR.
I have had many cameras since then and by far my favourite was a cheap East German camera by PRAKTIKA. The model was a BC1 and it was a film SLR which I used to take many black and white shots. I will scan in some shots and post them here.
These days I am lucky enough to use a NIKON D5100, a Tamron 70-300mm lens, NIKON P340, and an iPhone among others..which is one reason I started this blog in the first place, to keep me interested and to push myself at the same time. I really enjoy photography and hope you get enjoyment from my blog. Cheers for stopping by.
