Photograph of the day – Ribbon

I’m assuming that these yellow ribbons, which appeared last weekend around Templemore Ave, have something to do with the recent deployment of the RIR to Afghanistan.

Photograph of the Day – Disappearing Orange

On Sunday i spent the day  covering  the charity cycle ‘Lap the Lough’ (86 miles clockwise around Lough Neagh). I didn’t make a note of where i took this  unfortunately. Anyways another of my bug bears is the flags issue. I think there should be more respect shown and that the flying of these fluttering rags of allegiance should be limited to ensure that this sort of disrespect isn’t the norm which unfortunately  it seems to be. Discuss……. Moochin PhotomanPhotographer … Read more

Photograph of the Day – Zadoc Nava

The exhibition comprises photographs from a number of visits to Iran, in particular the capital Tehran and offers an insight into life in Iran. It’s an interesting exhibition and highlights tensions between the old and the new. Speaking with Zadoc he told me that whilst there was no real problem taking photographs(as ever common sense needs to be applied when shooting on the street) he did get arrested once. I think there is a resonance between the political and religious … Read more

Photograph of the Day – “Sure all you people do is scare folk”

Walking through town i saw this little tableau and took this photo. I heard Brian say “Sure all you people do is scare folk”. My guess is that the two crouching men were trying to convert Brian and his friend. Since i posted Brian’s photograph a few months ago i have had a couple of conversations with him. Respecting his privacy i won’t go into detail but he did tell me that he lived and worked as a fitter in Germany … Read more

Photograph of the day – Linton Kwesi Johnson

Johnson is the second living poet to be published in Penguin Classic series and the only Black poet to be included in the list. Having seen him perform live twice  i can’t recommend him enough. The inflection and rhythm of his words are difficult to categorise but his inclusion in the Penguin Classic series is praise enough. Listening to his mellifluous bass tones be it set to music or on his own, is an experience that i wish alot more … Read more

Photograph of the Day – Play me I’m Yours

The 10 pianos have been painted/pimped/decorated by local artists. This lovely(whimsical)  project is part of Craft NI craft month. In the last 2 days i have rounded corners to hear unexpected music including a group of around 10 or so singing along to contemporary songs as one of their friends played the tunes (very very well it has to be said). Pianos are located at City Hall, Commercial Court (Duke of York), Cotton Court, Cornmarket sculpture (monstrosity), Rosemary St (First … Read more
