My photo

My name is John at present i am a stay at home dad to two young children ....  i try to educate myself online and at the moment i am doing a online course called ......UT.6.01x Embedded Systems - Shape the World

As i love all things electronic and love learning how they work and try to make some electronic circuts with my limited supplies .... i also have a love of photography mostly enjoy taking nature photos ... and also enjoy playing poker   .....
Main goal is to continue learning about electronics and code and hopefully some day put it to good use .... thankfully with so many sites online there is always somewhere to learn from.
One of the best sites is Lets Make Robots which i am a member of .... this site has lots of great people willing to share there knowledge and offer help and advice to others looking to learn.

Horses looking over the fence

Going through my photos tonight and found this one, I liked it but it needed something so after messing around with it for a while I decided to gray scale it and fiddle with the settings and then a tighter crop and now I am happy with it.  I use adobe photoshop 7 for editing pictures .... unfortunately I don't take the best photos I usually have to put them through a editing program to brighten,  sharpen and give them a bit of contrast and I find this programme brilliant for that.
This photo was taken in Kildare, it was evening time and the light had started to fade.


  1. This photo is awesome! The composition is excellent, at least I think so!

    Glad you found my blog. Hope you stop by more often, I have a fun post scheduled for Monday.

    You have a very nice blog. I see you are in Ireland. I have ALWAYS wanted to visit Ireland. :D

  2. John: You take a great photo if it comes out well after you work it with PS. Everyine modifies there photos somewhat for clarity.

  3. Hi John,
    Nice shot of the horses, and also the rooster in the previous post.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and also for the comment on the birds in flight. Ironically, I'll be in Ireland for 2 weeks later this year - too bad I won't be able to scope out any wildlife on that trip, since I'll be with a group doing other things.
    Take care, and stop back again when you have the time.

  4. Hello John, Thanks for visiting my blog today. PS is a very good program and can do wonders with a photograph.

    I especially love that swan pic.

  5. I had a lovely time here. I love that shot of the flying heron. That must have taken ages to get just right.

  6. Thanks for all the comments, one of my favorite parts of having a blog is to receive comments

  7. Very nice shot John. Crisp and clean looking, and the conversion works really well.
    I love that Swan and duckling shot in the earlier post. Great capture.
