Passport Changes – We’re READY!

HM Passport Agency is changing the way passport photographs are conveyed to them.  The old paper passport photograph will soon not be accepted, as the agency changes to digital, online applications.

In future, your passport photo will be sent to the Passport Agency with a unique code, that you must obtain from the studio where your passport photo was taken.

Comber Cabbage Crop…

Some time ago I made images of a field of barley at Comber, and I uploaded two of them to Pixabay, the photo-sharing website.

They’ve been downloaded 91 times, so far, – which is quite nice.  But just down the road from the now-harvested barley field, there are acres upon acres of cabbages, and since I now consider myself an expert vegetable – (photographer!) – I couldn’t resist stopping to get a few photos.  Of cabbages…  Er, yes.  Cabbages.

Gilford, Tullylish and Moyallen.

With a couple of hours to kill in Craigavon, I decided to make a photograph of each of the Craigavon Roundabouts – but then I’d second thoughts.  After all, I’d only a couple of hours, not all day!  So instead, I took a drive out to Gilford and Tullylish, and on the way back to Portadown, went to look at the Moyallen Quaker Meeting House.  Here’s a few images…

Coping With Loss – Data Loss!

Coping with Data Loss. 

Saturday 31st August 2019 was a big day in Ballygowan. Ninety two (yes, 92) marching bands were parading through the village in an event that was last held here 39 years ago. (And I was present then too). The next time it happens I’ll be 104, and I’m not sure if I’ll be fit to stand with a camera all day!  So, with a great opportunity for street photography right on my doorstep (literally 100 yards away) I spent the day making around 700 images.  Continue reading Coping With Loss – Data Loss!

Derry’s Walls

A wee trip by train up to the so-called ‘Maiden City’ and a dander round the famous and historic city walls, with granddaughter Chloe and the Fujifilm X-T30 camera.  Here’s some of the images…

NIR – Northern Ireland Railways

A train leaves the city en-route to Belfast, a journey that will take it almost 2 hours, travelling along the north coast to Coleraine, and through some of the most beautiful coastal scenery anywhere.  The trains in NI are safe, clean, comfortable and modern, and they run on time, (unlike their English counterparts!) and the fares are reasonable.  I like to think this is because the trains here are still run by the government, – Translink is a government owned company, so profits are used to improve services, instead of to reward shareholders and fat-cat bosses.
