Bodhran & Tin Whistle – Salmon’s Leap

March 17, 2010

A video featuring pictures of the Irish countryside and music

by Celia and Marc of the Irish duo Salmon’s Leap — 

[A bodhran is a hand-held goatskin drum used in traditional

Irish music. The tin whistle (also called the tinwhistle,

whistle, penny whistle, Irish whistle, feadóg, or feadóg stain)

is a simple six-holed woodwind instrument.]

I have always been a firm believer

in photographic experiments. Only

by attempting everything personally

can a photographer begin to

understand the scope of

photography..… No picture, verbal

description or how-to-do-it

article can supersede first-hand

Quote of the Day

October 25, 2009



I see my photographs as

meditations, it is as simple 

as that. To be understood,

they must be experienced––

felt, seen, known. Consequently,

I often use the medium of the

landscape, for everyone, in some

small way, has some very personal

relation to the land––thus they are

ready (and willing) to come in


to look, if not into, at least at the landscapes I produce. I have

trapped them then!


For if l have made the concept of the photographs strong enough,

the viewer will begin to still himself for, indeed, I make Still

photographs — and with the coming stillness comes the

possibility of a deep meditational understanding and seeing.


And seeing leads to Vision. And my photographs are there

mainly as pointers, indications, of a vision of possibilities

where stillness and silence abound — and where Light is

understood to be a substantial reality.


My photographs are my greatest teachers. It is my hope

that they offer a moment of pleasure to my viewers —

and perhaps a tiny hit of (mutual?) understanding …

but, as always, I have no expectations.
