"Photograph More"

A Little Look Back #3

2016 was filled with many "Firsts" for me. As I mentioned in a previous post, I had a list of things I wanted to achieve before the year was out. Most of them were creative challenges that I put before myself, others were personal and family oriented.

One of them was simply to "Photograph More".

We all have our phones on hand to snap away at whatever takes our fancy in the moment but one of my favourite things to do in my spare time is to take one of my old film cameras for a spin.

Over the years I have taken 100's upon 100's of photographs most of which no-one will ever see. However, last October, with the encouragement of my amazing family and friends I framed three photos from my "Ophelia" series and hung them along side some incredibly talented Tipperary based Artists at the jam packed, South Tipperary Arts Anniversary exhibition.

The response and support was overwhelming. To say I am grateful and humbled by the experience doesn't do it all justice.

I think this is a goal that I may have to roll over to 2017 and "Photograph EVEN more".
