2011 IN PICTURES – FEBRUARY

February was a month of travelling, and thankfully, the pictures reflect that.

At the start of the month, I headed to Barcelona for a quick break, and absolutely loved it.

It’s a fantastic city worth visiting, with some fantastic Street Art and sights which is a dream for amateur photography.

Managed to get a ticket for the match at the Nou Camp against Atletico Madrid, where despite being in the second tier of the stand, I managed to get some fantastic shots of a fantastic stadium.

Almost as soon as I got home from Barcelona, I was Dublin bound to see Northern Ireland take on Scotland, in the newly built Aviva Stadium which is kind for amateur photography, even though some of the seats have shocking views.

Later in the month, I managed to see Imelda May perform at the Oh Yeah Centre for a TV show, where I managed to get into a good position for shots.

Enjoy

IMELDA MAY LIVE AT THE OH YEAH CENTRE 23.2.2011

Was at the Oh Yeah Centre on Wednesday night for a TV recording for a show called “Sounds Of The Cities“, currently being broadcast on Channel 4, presented by Matthew Horne.

The one that was recorded in Belfast is scheduled to be broadcast late on Wednesday 2nd March.

The only artist I saw was Imelda May. She was excellent. Before this show, i’d only known one song by her, ‘Mayhem

I seriously can’t suggest her enough.

Recording was delayed by two hours due to technical issues, which plagued the recording of May’s performance (Not her problems though, she was excellent)

Having come straight from work, I was absolutely shattered and just headed home, but I was thankful i’d went.
