2014 IN PICTURES – APRIL

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.

PHOTO OF THE SEASON 2013-2014

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 :

FUGLAFJORDUR

Taken just after the final whistle of Linfield’s match with Fuglafjordur as fans applauded, the composition and framing just works for me which is why I love the photo.

SKODA

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.

JEFFREY

Like the other two, it’s all about the composition, as David Jeffrey observes the action during a pre-season match against Derriaghy CC

RICHMOND

Taken during my trip to Dublin, I took in a St Patrick’s Athletic game. The colours just make this photo for me, as is the fact you came see a rainbow over the stadium.

CAMERAS

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.

BRISBANE ROAD

I’m a sucker for arty pics of football stadiums. I took this during a trip to London, when I took in a match at Leyton Orient.

THE OVAL

Linfield fans looking on, under the floodlights, as their side has a free-kick against Glentoran at The Oval.

ROONEY

Manchester United fans looking on as Wayne Rooney prepares to take a free-kick against Olympiacos.

SEAVIEW

Linfield fans looking one at a match at Seaview. Seaview is always good for photos.

BLUE

Arty one, take of seats in the South Stand at Linfield’s last game at Windsor Park before redevelopment, which the South Stand will be one of the main areas getting redeveloped.

CLARKE

Taken on the last day of the league season, love the composition, especially of the two players, one with the ball, and one trying to win the ball back,
