INVITED THE PRESS TO A PHOTO-SHOOT
On the first day of September 2018 I decided to try out Sony HX-90V which I purchased because it has GPS capability and much to my surprise GPS works well but I really dislike the viewfinder and many other aspects of the camera but I can’t really complain as I paid less than Euro 300. However, I must admit that I was a bit upset when I discovered that it does not shoot RAW.
Today there was a day of action in Dublin to honour the country’s emergency services but as you can see from my photographs they even included many other services such as a number of Customs officers and their sniffer dogs.
After photographing the “National Services Day” parade at North Parnell Square I decided to visit the Botanic Gardens but to get there I needed to go to Broadstone in order to get a bus to Glasnevin. While waiting at the bus stop I had a conversation with a nun who told me that there must have been a major disaster because the city centre was full of fire engines and ambulances and I could not convince her that there was nothing to worry about. She must have been clairvoyant because this is the location of the riot that took place in Dublin not many days ago.
