Ruth and John's Bop

My dear friend Ruth is expecting her first baby in about 6 weeks. She seems convinced it's a boy saying 'him' all the time... I've my fingers crossed for them. I'm very happy for her, and despite some uncomfortable nights, she reports all is going well. Congratulations to you both and thanks for letting me take pictures of the little bundle already :)

Bubbly Ben

This is Benjamin. I had taken photographs of him last year(see my Nov 11th Post) when he wasn't even able to sit up on his own. It's great to see how much he's grown and now running around and talking in his own little language. He has so much energy and a great smile, I think you'll agree.

Tiny treat

I had a real treat this week capturing this little darling in his first few weeks of life. Little M. got up to a bit of devilment in this shoot...let just say he enjoyed the freedom of being without his nappy for a wee while ;)

Get personalised cards of your kids to send to all your family and friends... yeah I know it's all a bit American, but despite that, the idea has grown on us. Arrange your appointment soon, to avoid disappointment.

Yeats Tower & Coole Park

Above taken in Coole Park not far from Thoor Ballylee, home of William Butler Yeats, below. The tower had to be restored before Yeats could live there in 1919 with his wife and daughter. Yeats mentions Ballylee in a letter to Maud Gonne in May 1918

' We hope to be in Ballylee in a month and there I dream of making a house that may encourage people to avoid ugly manufactured things - an ideal poor man's house. Except a very few things imported as models we should get all made in Galway or Limerick. I am told that our neighbours are pleased that we are not getting 'grand things but old Irish furniture

After the Yeats family moved out in 1929 it fell into disuse , but was restored as 'Yeats Tower' in 1965 and fitted out as a Yeats museum.

Galway Salsa Congress

They did their entire performance Blindfolded!

Adrian y Anita (Uruguay & Brasil) The strongest, most flexible and elegant woman I've ever seen.

Junior & Emily (USA). The fantastic sibling duo, have recently performed on America's got Talent and previously came second place in the World On2 Salsa Championship. She certainly can spin, Fantastic!

Henry Herrera & Partner(Miami) So much energy and fun.

The 3rd Galway Salsa Congress was a huge success, with big international stars performing and teaching all weekend. The workshops were very good and the performances were jaw dropping. I'm fairly bruised and worn out after that weekend, but looking forward to next year already :

Thanks Anna and Vitor for putting it all together!

Cruinniu na mBad

Cruinniu na mBad, meaning "Gathering of the Boats", is a festival held in Kinvara, Co. Galway in August each year. It's a celebration of times past when the Galway Hookers used to transport turf/peat to Kinvara. These are a few characters I spotted in the crowd this year.

Some from tonight

The views from the bay of Renville West near where I live in Oranmore. It was nice dry evening today, but a lot of the light was gone by the time I made it here. I enjoyed taking them anyway, hope you like.

just a teaser...

I did my first wedding solo recently and although I'd probably choose to be a guest at the next family one, I always enjoy taking photographs. Working on them now, so here's one I did tonight.
Any comments welcome.
Plenty more, on the way soon!
