In May 2012 I watched a life changing documentary called The Genius Of Photography. After viewing all 6 episodes over the course of a few days I was so inspired that I eagerly rushed out to buy myself a camera and start snapping! I purchased a Fujifilm S4000 bridge camera, meaning it lies somewhere between a point and shoot and a DSLR. It came with loads of features to manually adjust things like aperture, shutter speed, ISO and so on, plus it has a 30X Optical Zoom. I brought my camera everywhere I went in the early months after buying it, I shot many hundreds of photos of anything and everything.
In 2013 I plan to start travelling around Europe and playing music, starting in the South of France. I can’t wait to see what photo opportunities await me! And you can be sure I’ll keep you all up to date via my blog
So here are my 12 favorite photos from 2012, plus a few honorable mentions at the bottom. The pictures are ranked very loosely, I like them all about the same to be honest. Please enjoy the pics, let me know what you think, and if you like them which one’s you like best:
A couple of friends meeting up out the front of the Gaiety Theater in Dublin.
Pigeons over Portobello, Dublin. I ended up using this image for the cover of my 2012 album “Short Days & Dark Nights”

Part of a photo shoot I did with my boots, I must have taken 200 photos of just those boots lol >.<

So those are my top 12 pics for 2012, but there are so many more that I like I thought I’d add just a few extra ones to this post. I don’t post many photos on this blog as it’s more about my writing and healing, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to show some more of my pics to those who are interested If you want to see even more of my photos be sure to visit my Tumblr Photo Blog. Before I go I’d just like to say a huge thanks to everyone who has supported my blog in 2012, everyone who has commented, viewed and shared my posts, thanks to much Here’s to an amazing 2013!! Take care, all the best
