April began for me at The Limelight, seeing Miles Kane in concert. Fantastic concert and a fantastic performer. Was up at the front, so managed to get some good photos.
It wasn’t until the second Saturday of the month that I went to my first football match (there was no football for me on the first Saturday due to Irish Cup Semi-Finals) at Seaview, seeing Linfield win a thrilling game 3-2.
Within ten days, Linfield’s title hopes had ended with a draw (v Portadown) and a defeat (v Glentoran) over Easter.
The game against Glentoran was Linfield’s last at Windsor Park before refurbishment, so I took the opportunity to get some final shots of the South Stand.
Linfield’s season ended with a trip to Mourneview Park, David Jeffrey’s last game in charge. End of season stuff and an easy win for Linfield, and some nice photos.
The next day, I headed to North Street to get some photos of Street Art which had just appeared in the area.
So, another football season is over, time to look back. It’s taken in four countries and various stadiums, teams and levels. There was a lot of pictures, so here are my favourites. Feel free to vote for yours :
Taken before Linfield’s match with Skoda Xanthi, again, the composition and the light works for me, as supporters walk to The Kop, ready for the 90 (well, in this match, it was 120) minutes that await.
Taken during the Northern Ireland v Portugal match, the two cameras, focused on the action in sync does it for me, alongside the composition of the players, so small in comparison with their surroundings.
