Fame at last !

04th August 2010
I have no new pictures of Mayo this evening because I had to go to Dublin. I visited my sister Elaine and while there we watched "Higher Ground" a programme on RTE about a friend of mine Paul Harmen and his new business Electric Escapes. There was a possiblilty that I might appear as I had been filmed giving a brief photography class to one of Pauls tour groups. Anyway there I was in full colour, and its true TV does add 20lbs!! If we are to assume that we will all have 15minutes of fame then I have about 14minutes and 45 seconds still to come!!. Anyway we then went to the airport to collect my daughter Grainne who was flying in from Germany and I took this picture for the blog.It was taken fromthe multi story car park, I should add it was taken in a hurry as I was aware that taking out a tripod and camera at an international airport could have resulted in my quota of fame being completed!!

When we got home at 2.30am I discovered that I had won a gold award for Landscape in the The Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers "SINWP" Monthly comp which I had entered for the first time! The picture can be seen on the blog for 4th June called "the winning shots" - I must have known!! Its the first picture and is called " shaped by nature"
