Photography & Me

My grandfather, Dennis Dinneen, was a great photographer in his day. This could be where I get my interest from. I’m no professional, and am not even close to an exert – I merely have a genuine, but definitely amateur, interest.

I love film photography, and use a Canon AE-1, 35mm film. I have a Canon DSLR (660 model) too, and of course my iPhone. I’m not great for taking photos generally – I tend to avoid being on the receiving end of the camera – but I understand that this is something I am going to have to work on in order to add to the success and quality of this blog; I realise I am going to have to ask my friends to take pictures of me, and make sure to take pictures of my food in cafés and restaurants before I eat it etc…

We’ll see how well I strike that balance – being mindful of the need for content, without letting that preoccupation interrupt or take away from my experiences and of allowing myself to be in the moment, at the time and in the place.
