Yesterday I bumped into a stag. Nice guy. He didn’t much like the look of me though.
I was driving around today and came across the spooky Ahamlish Church near Grange in Sligo. There is some more info over on the excellent Abandoned Ireland site.
Long before Weezer brought out their “The Green Album”, a 20-something year old Christie Hennessy recorded one by the same name in London in 1972. He didn’t release anything else for 20 years and only sold 500 copies of this one but it is a really unique album.
There are some traditional Irish tunes on it but the best stuff is his own. There is some really nice guitar playing on the album like on the song “Toomey’s Yarn”. Some of the singing and lyrics are pretty manic. I don’t know much about Christie Hennessy or his later stuff but this album sounds a lot like a Sid Barrett album to me. Maybe I am wrong…
This was one of my first attempts at time lapse on a wet day in Sligo this summer. I mistakenly had the camera in AV mode so there is a lot of flickering as shutter speed and ISO changes. You should always use manual mode for time lapse.
