“Au revoir”

Alas, it looks like I have used 3.0 GB of my 3.0 GB upload limit (100%). It seems I cannot add any more of my photographs to Camera Obscure without purchasing a Space Upgrade from WordPress. This will therefore likely be the last post for a while, though I shall of course continue to take photographs, some of which I will upload to my other blog, Behind the Couch.

I initially created this blog, back in 2012, for a Photo A Day For A Year project, the aim of which was to encourage myself to become a more prolific photographer, and to become more observant of the world around me; to appreciate and capture those little moments so often overlooked. My friend also created a blog to chart her progress in the same project. It was a fun and creative year. You can view my collection of daily photos by clinking on the Photo A Day For A Year link above. Once the PADFAY project came to an end, I still continued to update Camera Obscure with my photographic efforts.

Thank you for visiting, please feel free to stay awhile and look around.

“Au revoir” – at least for now.


Garden of Unearthly Delights

22 Apr

Last weekend my parents and I drove across the border to County Louth. We ended up in the tiny fishing village of Clogherhead. On the way there however, we passed a house on the side of the road with a garden full of weird, wonderful and strangely terrifying ornaments. References to Lewis Carroll, the Bible and Irish folklore abound…

Inside Exeter Cathedral I

6 Feb

I stayed with friends in Exeter last weekend. The weather was very changeable, indeed that part of England was hit by harsh storms and floods. Between rain showers on Saturday, we visited the cathedral.  Almost as soon as we entered the building, the sun came out, creating gorgeous light and shadows within…

2013 in review

31 Dec

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,700 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 28 trips to carry that many people.
