Halloween is always a big night in Derry. It started taking off, during the worst of times in the 70s and 80s, simply from ordinary Derry people dressing up and wandering the streets. Gradually the City Council got on board, organised official events and facilitated the craziness.

Now on any Halloween night Derry will have tens of thousands of people on the streets. Many of them dressed up – some in very elaborate costumes – some of the best co-ordinate a theme with a bunch of their friends, some will just have a witch’s hat or face-mask.

There is an official carnival parade, a n

50,000 views

I joined RedBubble about 18 months ago. Today the view count on my portfolio passed through 50,000 views. Of those about 10,000 have happened over the last three months.…

So this seems like a good time for a small review of some numbers.

 

Photographs

I have uploaded a total of ninety photographs in that time. Most of those have been panoramas
But I have also included quite a few flowers that I found on my way to or from shooting panoramas, or sometimes right beneath the tripod.

There have also been a few shells and the very occasional thing that was just a photograph

Epson Pano Awards

It has been a hectic few weeks.…

                         
At the end of April we had the announcements of the Awards from the SoJIE-10 Earth-day exhibition and the news broke that my Ness Glen panorama (above) had been selected as “Best in Show”.

 

Today I have heard news from the Epson International Photographic Pano Awards . Three of my panoramas have received “Bronze Awards”. They are no longer in the running for the major prizes but this award is like an “Honourable Mention” for the runners up.

 

My rectangular panorama of Bunglas Sea Cliffs:
             
was awarded a Bronze Award in the “Nature” section.

This was one of my most popular images here at RedBubble. Its view-count reached 500 much faster than any of my other photographs. It is a cropped pannora

Very Ireland - panoramic prints of Ireland

Hello folks,…

I am new to RedBubble I have uploaded my first two photographs today. They are both square-format 360° panoramic prints from my home town, Derry.

One from the city “Hand across the Divide” is a panorama of a well known local piece of public art by Maurice Harron.

The other “Ness Glen” was taken in a country park a few miles out of town.

Originally my images were used to create immersive, virtual reality, panoramas. I have a lot in that format on my Very Derry website.

Over the last year I have been experimenting with methods of making flat printable versions. I have had a couple of (off-line) exhibitions at which people have been very positive. So now I am looking at ways of making the prints available online.

I will gradually upload a small collection over the next fe
