4 Years

My blog just had it’s fourth birthday- and somehow I forgot about it. These photos were taken on a very cold January afternoon in 2004. There had just been a severe blizzard, but it didn’t stop me trudging around Manhattan in the snow- ending up in Battery Park at dusk. The plan had been to get the ferry out […]

Wall Street

New York, USA, January 2004:  I arrived in New York during a mid-winter blizzard. The city was still recovering from the devastating 911 attacks, just over two years prior. It was a pretty grim time to visit and the weather didn’t help- but it was business as usual on Wall Street…

This is straight off the scan- no edits…   Olympus XA2/Kodak Tri-X

Departures

London, 2004: Had one of those super-cheap flight’s out of London (Stanstead) to Palermo in Sicily. The catch was… it left at six in the morning. So we got a late flight in from Dublin and killed a bit of time, then wandered around looking for a place to doss for a few hours. It […]

Mogwai

Dublin, Ireland, 2003:  Grabbed a few shots of Scottish post-rock icons Mogwai at the Olympia theatre in Dublin.  They were promoting their new album “Happy Songs for Happy People”,  a rather ironic subdued affair.  It was a very intense/loud/exellent gig, and just when they were about to start their finale I was confronted by security… […]
