2013 began for me by going to Windsor Park 15 hours into the first day of the year to see Linfield take on Cliftonville in an Irish League clash, which Linfield won 3-1.
Windsor Park was somewhere I spent a lot of the early weeks of 2013, going to see Linfield take on Coleraine the following Saturday, and then Crusaders in the Irish Cup the Saturday after that.
The usual arrangements with Windsor Park photos, some ok, nothing special. That said, I managed to get a well framed shot of a row of people, all wearing hats watching the game, which came about by fluke, as it was a test shot having moved to the South Stand from The Kop.
The following weekend, I had plans for a football match and a concert, but it was only the concert I got to see.
The snow put paid to me seeing Linfield take on Donegal Celtic away from home, and I was unable to get to the rearranged game.
On the Sunday night, I went to see Paloma Faith at Ulster Hall. She was fantastic. I wasn’t completely happy with the photos I got some ok photos.
Of course, with there being snow, I was out getting some photos. Little did I know, this would be a monthly activity for the first three months of 2013.
The following day, I was at Seaview to see Linfield exit the Irish Cup.
