So once upon a time, there were some people. They liked taking photographs. Occasionally they walked around the place. Sometimes they even did both at the same time. And once in a blue moon, they did it in the company of others.
As time went on, they met up less and less often. Some of them still took photos, some less so. Pixie disappeared, Flickr wasn’t quite the same. Where there had been photoblogs, there were 404 messages. Shutters that had clicked fell silent.
But lately, there seem to have been stirrings. Cameras that were laid down have been picked up with a kind of fond nostalgia. The simple pleasure of looking into a viewfinder as opposed to staring a smartphone screen was rekindled.
I was thinking of walking around and taking some photographs in Sligo on the 18th May (it’s not a blue moon, although there is a full moon).
If anyone else felt like walking around and taking some photographs at the same time, that’d be swell. There may even be pints.
