This year I decided to undertake a photography project to give me some targets to aim for during the year and too keep me shooting. With the best will in the world, I knew I did not have the time or commitment to go the whole hog and shoot a 366-photo-a-day project, so when I read on Google+ that +Giuseppi Basile was curating a Project 52 I thought it would be the perfect project for the year. One photo per week with the additional challenge of a set theme per week.
I am currently 9 weeks into the project which to-date has been more challenging, rewarding and infuriating than I ever expected.
Blessington Lakes is becoming a regular photography spot for me. As seems to be the normal at the moment, the sky had a light scattering of cloud as I left my house and I was full of I was full of hope of the chance of grabbing some decent shots this morning. However, as I reached the lakes I could see the clouds rolling in from the south east with a thick low blanket of cloud in the Wicklow Mountains in the background.
I arrived in good time, having scouted out a potential new location. However, I ended up having to abandon my first location as I hit a dead end down a county lane and couldn’t reach the shore of the lake. By the time I reversed out and arrived at my back-up location, the first rays of the sun, still below the horizon, were starting to reflect on the clouds in the sky.
This is not a food blog, but like my passion for photography, I also have a deep love of food. I blog about photography, my wife blogs about food, we enjoy our love of food together and have had the pleasure of sharing many a beautiful meal at restaurants across the world.
Adrienne, through her social media food blogging friends, learned of a new exhibition called Edible: The Taste of Things to Come running at the Science Gallery, Dublin. The event which caught Adrienne’s eye and thought would be perfect for me was a Food Photography Workshop run by Seattle Food Geek AKA Scott Heimendinger.
