I'm filling out a UCAS form to apply for college in Britain and the personal statement bit has got me thinking again about the photographer who made me want to take photographs (and spend a ridiculous amount of money on my first camera). His name is Casper Dalhoff and I first saw his series 'The Dark Side' in the slightly incongruous surroundings of the Eyre Square Shopping centre as part of the World Press Photo 2003 exhibition.

I feel like the camera has been clamped to my face this last week or so. This evening I'm gonna wade through the billions of photographs produced by a week that included a trip to Cork to see probably the most eye/ear-opening gig I've ever witnessed and two very enjoyable gigs of my own. Also this week: losing my keys, then sort-of losing someone else's keys; cross-town-massive-bag-transport; workworkwork and surprise Christmas tree! The sitting room smells like childhood with the tree in the corner.
The photo above is of Sionnach and Ali's game of peek-a-boo in the Pavillion in Cork, where last minute gig re-arrangements for Vicky's Black Sun night (my first time attending!) were feverishly, calmly being made.
