I wish I had taken a better photo, and I really missed a good opportunity here. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to catch this sea lion’s head, just its arse :( They’re too quick! I tried different angles after taking this shot, but then the boy went away. Blargh.
What I do like about this photo, though, is light (even though the sea lion’s arse is slightly overexposed), that’s why I decided to publish it anyway.
Amsterdam ZOO, a peacock walking from one table to another, begging people for food. Additionally, in Polish it’s a kind of a word game – “paw, który sępi” – non-translatable, I’m afraid (but a main reason I’m actually posting this, I have better photos from this trip).
“Vischhandel” means “fish trade” in Dutch, so I have a theory that this is just a pub in a place that used to be a fish shop (in the late 19th or early 20th century, judging by the sign’s typeface).
This was taken in Haarlem, Holland. The guy on the photo was opening the pub. He thought he was ruining my photo, but I really wanted him on it. He laughed.
If you’re getting bored with Dublin photos, know that I’m going on a holiday to Holland quite soon and hopefully will bring back a lot of interesting shots.
The pipe band festival was almost over, the bands were waiting for the mayor to speak when three children decided to use the mayor’s podium to jump from. Repeatedly. No respect for pathos. None at all. Just like me <3
Went to a pipe band festival in Malahide yesterday.
Update: I’ll post more photos to my picasa album, (documentary type, not art type)
Inside a steam locomotive. Very steampunk-ish ;)
Guess if I could resist, when I heard a steam train right outside my window (I live next to the train station). My injured foot didn’t seem to mind a small walk anyway. The locomotive was beautiful, but there were so many people, and the light was so bright, that I didn’t manage to take a lot of good photos that didn’t contain random people doing random stuff. The light contrast was somewhat unpredictable, and I have photos where the dark side is too dark and the other one is too overexposed to be of any use >.<
Still, I'm happy with the few I've got.
Dublin Pearse Station again.
A group of Muslim teenagers admiring the seals in the Howth fishing port. The guy who suddenly appeared before my camera is spoiling the picture somewhat, but I decided to publish it anyway.
A family of musicians playing traditional jazz. (Howth, Ireland)
Awesome zombie cosplay at the Arcadecon in Dublin.
A small bridge across the pond in St Stephen’s Green park in Dublin.
Merrion Square park, Dublin.
I know the top is overexposed, but I still like it.
“Srsly, mon, are you gonna eat the WHOLE sandwich?!”
People feeding birds in St Stephen’s Green park in Dublin.
This was taken through a cafe window, I thought it looked interesting with all the reflections.
Playing with focus in my new lens :)
You sit in front of your computer doing stuff for the whole day and nothing happens, and then you leave the house for several hours and suddenly you get tons of likes and comments :D
This is my second appearance in Freshly Pressed. Thanks guys, I really appreciate it. You have no idea how much it motivates me to go on.
