Mix 94.5

Photographing the Mix 94.5 summer breakfast crew recently was a bit of a dream come true. As a radio-lover from way back, I’ve always wondered what life inside the booth is really like. Is there really an ‘On Air’ sign? (Yes!) Do the presenters wear their pajamas? (No!) Is there a 10 second delay for quick re-edits in case they fluff their lines? (NO! They just get it right!!!)

I felt like a kid in a lolly shop 🙂

Just for a laugh…

I love it when friends not only agree to a bit of zany fun, but do such a good job that the camera shudders ’cause I can’t stop laughing. This project bit of fun was loosely called, ‘Waiting’.

Together they are slowly, lovingly bringing Gareth into being. I can’t wait to creep into Spare Parts Puppet Theatre again soon to watch the tale unfold. Watch this space 🙂 …

Paris, dramatic in so many ways

Some holidays are good, some are great! My family have recently returned from a great one. I’ve been trying to get to Paris since I was a school girl in England. My sister went with her class on a day trip to Paris. She bought me back a toy red London bus-not very French, but it ignited my desire for adventure. I waited patiently for my last year of primary school so I could go too. Then we moved and I lost my chance. So, hundreds of years later I’ve dragged my family to Paris, en route to Ireland. It was hot, a little wet, but amazingly fabulous. It was so….French!
