Photo Sale Exhibition Caherdaniel in Aid of Derrynane Inshore Rescue

Between the two landscape photos that I took today on my way to Caherdaniel and coming home in Waterville is a photograph of two hands with money.
This photo means a lot to me and I´m sure to everybody who had an involvment in the exhibition over the Bank holiday weekend in the Community hall Caherdaniel.

After closing the exhibition we raised over 2000€ from photo sales from the South Kerry Camera Club, and about 600 € from a donation box and a photo auction by Vincent Hyland, who donated a Skellig aerial view for the exhibition. 2600€ is a great success and I like to thank all that helped making it a great event for a great cause.
The sea is one of the worlds most popular subject for photography but it can be dangerous too. May the money we raised over the weekend help to support those who look after our well beeing .

We are back in 2014

Derrynane Inshore Rescue would like to say a huge "thank you" to everybody in South Kerry Camera club for holding the photo exhibition/sale in aid of Derrynane Inshore Rescue last weekend. This exhibition/sale was a huge success and raised roughly €2000. This is a difficult time for fundraising and raising €2000 over one weekend is a fantastic achievement. This money will be put to good use in buying equipment etc. Again thank you and well done to everybody.

Last week a few days in Lisbon gave me the opportunity to get some nice shots. The ones I selected for this blog intentionally do not show the impressive historic buildings, churches and monasteries but try to concentrate more on details and rather unusual views. Pictures taken with Olympus E-5,Zuiko Digital 14-54 mm and Samsung WB750 Digicam.
