Welcome to the first in a 12 part (unsurprisingly) series between now and December 22nd, looking back at some of my favourite photos i’ve taken throughout 2011.
A new year, and a new experience for me, as I visited Solitude for the first time, to see Linfield take on Cliftonville on the 22nd.
As per the arrangements, we were dropped off outside the stadium and picked up straight away, so I never really got a chance to experience walking up to the ground and taking it in, like most other grounds.
That said, the away end is a nice wee stand, though not kind for amateur photography.
That said, I did manage to improvise and get some nice shots, nicely assisted by the fog that day.
The following week, I went to a CD launch at the Oh Yeah Centre for a charity album by Duke Special, where he covers the songs of Ruby Murray, where I managed to get some nice shots.
It wasn’t the most active or productive of months, but there will be more and better photos from the rest of the year.
