Eamonn Grealish is a young lad from Galway, Ireland, with a growing interest in photography, whom I met a few years ago on his first visit to the States.  Soon after, we began an ongoing conversation about our shared hobby.  A new Sony DSC-WX100 camera received for Christmas has really fired up Eamonn’s passion and he’s been sharing some of his ever-improving photos with me.

About this image, Eamonn writes:

“I read your blog at 3:30am, saw the black & white month theme, got out of bed at 8am (red eyed & up to my ears in coffee), and pretty much shot everything in B&W mode that day.
The gate is at Fanore Beach, Co. Clare Ireland.  The pic of the timber decked walkway is the lead up to the gate; that beach area is amazing I never realized we have places like that here!”

Eamonn shot this with his Sony set at f/3.3, 1/30s.

Well done Eamonn.  Thanks for getting up with the birds to get this shot.  The wide angle composition draws us right down the path onto the beach and it really works in black and white.    It’s funny how it’s not until we start to really look at things, that we begin to see.

Good luck with your photography Eamonn and keep us posted on what you’re seeing.

    Nice capture Eamonn. It looks and feels like old Ireland, if that makes sense. I sure hope to visit this place someday!

    Very nice Eamonn, I can relate to photography changing how you look at and appreciate things. Keep getting up early.

    This is a wonderful photo! A path, a rail, a beach and ocean waves – iconic!

    Thank you all very much. I really appreciate the comments, inspiration to keep shooting.
    I highly recommend a visit to Ireland if you’re into photography just be sure and bring lots of free GBs. I’ve lived in Ireland for all 27 years and its only now I see what the ‘tourist’ saw haha.
