It’s fair to say that April was a busy month.
The first Saturday of the month, I went to two football matches in a day, both Irish Cup Semi-Finals. That night, I went to see Ellie Goulding at Waterfront Hall.
The following morning, I went to get some Street Art photos from the Lagan Towpath.
Three days later, I was in Glasgow to see Linfield in a friendly. I stayed for a few more days so I could see James at SECC, supported by Echo and the Bunnymen.
While I was in Glasgow, I managed to get some Street Art pictures, and attended the Scottish Cup Semi-Final between Falkirk and Hibs.
As you can imagine, I went camera happy during that trip.
Upon my return to Belfast, I was out getting photos of a mural of Bananaman in Great Victoria Street, as you do, before seeing Linfield finish off a miserable season with two home defeats.

Went for a wee cycle this mornind down Lagan Towpath, accompanied with my camera, to try and get some wall art photos as a bonus.
I got some new pieces at the cycle bridge as you leave Stranmillis, but I got some shots of art in an abandoned building at Newforge, which I had previously got some
. photos of in 2010
As well as that, the wall at the entrance to the Towpath had got a wee update.
Was out during the week just past over the Lagan Towpath making the most of the upturn in weather, camera in hand.
Here’s the results, nothing too spectacular, but some nice framing.
Apologies for the delayed post.
Was out during the last week making the most of the brief summer weather and got photos around Lagan towpath and Ormeau Park.
Enjoy. Summer won’t hit Northern Ireland for another 12 months.
Busy month as the Irish League season reached it’s finale and Beady Eye rolled into town.
The first day of the month saw me visit Seaview for a clash between Crusaders and Linfield. Earlier in the season, i’d left Seaview happy with the photos but disappointed with the result. That night, I left the other way around.
I did manage to get one good one, of Jim Ervin waiting to take a throw. Artistic.
My next Linfield away trip was at The Oval, and for once, I managed to get some good photos, especially at the end when Linfield were pushing for a winner, which eventually came.
Managed to get some OK photos of Beady Eye, but the month is mainly dominated by photos of Linfield matches and sunsets.

Not a lot happening this month, but I did managed to take advantage of the nights getting longer by snapping some sunsets on my way home from work.
Add to that some football shots from Linfield and Northern Ireland.
I Love You

June 2011 hasn’t been the most productive of months for photography, due to two main factors (i) Lots of rainy nights and nights with cloudy skies and (ii) Any night with a half-decent sunset, I was usually engaged elsewhere.
Was out on Tuesday night along the Lagan Towpath getting some photos, of which the following three are going to be used as my entry for Lagan Valley Regional Park’s photography competition.
On Wednesday, I was out at Ormeau Park and along the Annadale Embankment getting sunset photos and was very pleased with the results.
Took a wee walk around the Lagan Towpath this evening and managed to get some sunset photos.
I’m currently working on a hitlist of locations to get sunset photos of, while i’m not stuck in work while sunsets are happening, so watch this space.
Nice wee piece of wall art spotted on Lagan Towpath today. Enjoy.
First proper blog post of the year, of a graffiti spot at the entrance to the Lagan Towpath in Belfast, of a mural of Barney Gumble.
At the side of the mural, is the inscription “To alcohol, the cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems”
Any Simpsons geek will tell you that this is a line from the episode where alcohol is banned in Springfield, and Homer starts an undergound black market to keep the city’s drinkers happy.
There was also a mural of Homer Simpson, but somebody had defaced it unfortunaely. Doh!
