Meet Sean

Once again I have a long list of photo-to-dos including images from the recent Irish Blog Awards photowalk which was brilliant but more on that again. In the meantime I met this six-day-old little fella, if you come here now and again you might recognise his big sister, (I will also have more pics of this wee honey coming in the next while). So that’s it for now, more soon.

Shadows on the Quays

Out and about on St Patrick’s Day 2011

Well did you have a good Paddy’s Day? I’d a very relaxing day which involved getting up late before wandering close to town and then heading home to take the doggy out for a walk in Arbour Hill. I thought I would bring the camera on my walk to town, I’d decided not to go as far as the parade as I would’ve spent most of the time looking at the backs of people’s heads and today was all about taking it easy and having a leisurely walk :) So here’s some of the things I saw.

St Patrick’s Festival – Ceili

The 2011 St Patrick’s Day festival is well underway judging by the shapes people were throwing at Stephen’s Green this evening at the festival ceili. So before I got the dinner I got some shots, here’s some of them with more probably on the way. I’ll have a wander around tomorrow and see what I see. Enjoy your Paddy’s Day wherever you are.

Squee

We had the pleasure of minding a pygmy hedgehog over the last couple of weeks and I finally had time over the weekend during daylight hours to get some snaps of The Hedge – okay okay, thats what we called him, his real name is Snowy! He’s gone home now and this is all I managed to get that are publishable anyway.

It turned out that The Hedge actually thought he was a ninja turtle with amazing powers of escape as on more than one occasion he managed to get out of his box, onto the kitchen table and then onto the floor. (The first I know is when I heard this shuffling and then saw his wee head poke around the settee.) The Young Wan has a blurred pic of his wee paw at the top of the box on route to escape and I’ve another of his two back paws cutely dangling from a boot.

Obviously you can imagine Honey the dog’s reaction to this intruder! Even though I wasn’t going to risk any confrontation I am quite sure that The Hedge would win :)

At the count

It’s been a  mad few weeks and things should start to return to normal soon. I normally go nuts at the election counts with pics but I just wasn’t able to do as much this year. I may do another post as I do have more pics (just not as much as other years) but in the meantime, here’s two from Saturday in the RDS.
