Just got the info that my image "Auditorio de Tenerife" made the 3rd place color in the Picture of the Month Competition in May of the PSA.

This is the online gallery with the image: PSA Picture of the Month Online Gallery


Diagrammatically speaking, the building is composed of a succession of platforms, overshadowed by the enormous curved volume of the Main Hall. This is the heart of the building, both formally and structurally. The 50 m high overhanging roof gives the impression of animal-like movement and flexibility. The offices and rooms of the Auditorio, and the annexed buildings located beneath the platforms that surround the building, ensure that this multi-purpose centre can accommodate a considerably varied cultural offer.

Bernd and I had a quiet but good day out in Howth at the Farmers Market - at least - it didn't rain.

Meath / OPW Competition Winning Image

My Image "Donore Castle" is one of the winning images of the Meath / OPW competition "Heritage is Alive". I am really delighted. It will be used as an eCard on Flicker.

The images are on show in the Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre from 20th May – 30th June


Donore Castle, Co. Meath

The small tower house of Donore may have been built with the premium of £10 that the Government - alarmed by the frequent incursions of Gaelic lords - offered in Donore Castle 1429 to "every liege man" in the Pale who would build "a castle or tower sufficiently embattled or fortified within the next ten years to wit 20 feet in length 16 feet in width and 40 feet in height or more". The inside measurements and height of this simple three-storey rectangular tower certainly meet those requirements. Typically, its lower storeys are vaulted, while it has double-splayed basement loops, a box-machicolation above the ground floor entrance, mural latrine chambers, rounded external corners and a projecting tower at the south-west corner containing the stair.

Temple Bar Project

A few weeks ago I was asked by Barney Phair to take some images of the work by Harry Clarke - Irelands greatest stained glass artist - in the old Bewleys Cafe in Temple Bar. The images are now on show outside the old Bewleys Cafe in Temple Bar.

Thanks to Aga Szot from The Icon Factory for the post processing and to Barney for bringing the whole project to life.
