    All Eyes Will Be On Dublin Skies For Air Spectacular
    FlightFest, a once-in- a-lifetime, international fly past; will take place in the centre of Dublin city on Sunday, 15th September 2013.

    This will be a truly historic event involving more than 30 aircraft flying along the path of the River Liffey right through the centre of Dublin. Flightfest is expected to be one of the largest National events of ‘The Gathering Ireland 2013’ and is estimated that thousands of people from Dublin, all over Ireland and abroad, will line the banks of the River Liffey from Dublin Port up to the Customs House to experience this unique event.

    A large section of the Quays from the 02 (Dublin Port) as far as the Customs House will be pedestrianised for the Free Family event, with many family attractions and festivities available, contributing to a carnival aviation atmosphere that will showcase Irish aviation.

    The flypast through the city centre will take two hours to complete and the flights will be sequenced at five minute intervals.

    Among the 30 aircraft taking place will be (http://flightfest.ie/displaying-aircraft) the historic 1940s B-17 Flying Fortress (Sally -B), a 1941 Catalina Flying Boat, the last flying Avro Vulcan, which was famed for its role in the 1982 Falklands War, the Hawker Hunter from the 50s, a C130 Hercules, an Aer Lingus Airbus A330, a 1936 DH 84 Dragon, an Etihad Airbus 340 and a British Airways A380, which carries almost 500 passengers.

    Flightfest is proudly brought to you by the Irish Aviation Authority, Dublin City Council and the Gathering Ireland 2013, with the support of key sponsors and event partners.

    LANDSCAPE AND NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP,
    TOMMY KEOGH.

    OR
    PHOTO WALK WITH AN ECO-EYE, CREATESCHOOL.
    A Photo Walk: (for the uninitiated) is a two hour session where participants ranging from complete beginners to budding photographers come along to the Rua Red Arts Centre to learn about some photography theory and then put that theory into practice on a guided walk of the local area. By including the natural and created environs as subjects, the Photo Walk will concentrate on eco awareness. We have a number of cameras available or you can use your own.

    Two dates on this one.

    via South Dublin County Council's Eco Week <-booking details in there (link is a sizeable pdf - just don't download on your mobile :eek: )

    Free HDR shoot by the Institute of Photography - http://www.iop.ie/courses/free/freesessions/hdr.htm

    Yes, there may be water, blue light, clouds, and even a sawn ffs! Get signed up now.

    (in seriousness, Dave at the IOP does some great training - I think that's been the experience to date by boardsies)

    One tip is to go there on Saturday, they normally do a trial run with the planes, no people and it's more condensed. You have to sit through a lot of breaks on the Sunday.

    Certified by the Guinness World Records for two consecutive years as the world’s largest photography contest, Ireland has never been a part of Wiki Loves Monuments until now.

    Wiki Loves Monuments is an international photo contest, organised by Wikimedia, the movement behind Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia – a global collaboration authored by volunteers. This year, the Wikimedia Ireland Community are running the competition for the very first time in Ireland.

    The contest is inspired by the successful 2010 pilot in the Netherlands which resulted in 12,500 freely licensed images uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. It has grown substantially since its inception; in 2013 369,589 photographs were submitted by 11,943 participants from over 50 countries.

    Cultural heritage is an important part of the knowledge that Wikipedia collects and disseminates. An image is worth a thousand words, in any language and local enthusiasts can (re)discover the cultural, historical, or scientific significance of their neighbourhood.

    The Irish contest, focussing on Ireland’s national monuments, runs from August 23-September 30.

    For more details about photowalks and taking part, see http://www.wikilovesmonuments.ie/

    Just saw a post that there is an exhibition starting 23rd October of Father Browne's photographs - some are absolutely beautiful. I don't see any info up on the Farmleigh site though.

    https://www.facebook.com/Farmleigh
    // Groundbreaking exhibition of Father Browne’s Greatest Photographs comes to Farmleigh Gallery on 23 October //

    Frank Browne took his first photographs during a European tour in 1897, just before joining the Jesuits. These pictures convey something of the remarkable talent of a man who was to emerge as the most significant Irish photographer in the first half of the twentieth century. In 1912 his Titanic photographs brought international fame and by 1916 he was a WW1 chaplain to the Irish Guards. In 1921 took his final vows and still suffering from war wounds he went to Australia to recuperate and made a superb series of photographs of life in that country. On his return to Ireland he continued to record aspects of Irish ways of life both personal and corporate which, when added to his pictures in South Africa, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Spain and England constitute a fascinating interpretation of a rapidly evolving world. He was active in the photo-exhibition world and wrote articles for “The Kodak Magazine”. During this time he made 41,500 negatives. He died in 1960 and his work was largely forgotten.
    In 1985 Fr. EE O’Donnell SJ. came upon the trunk containing the negatives and quickly recognised that the pictures were exceptional but in many cases were deteriorating. This necessitated urgent action to conserve, duplicate and catalogue the entire collection. Edwin and David Davison of Davison and Associates carried out this work and now market the collection worldwide.

    For twenty-five years they have believed that a definitive publication of Browne’s finest artistic works selected for their intrinsic merit alone would bring the photographer’s work to a worldwide audience. All these images have been re-mastered to print at a quality not possible twenty-five years ago and do justice to Browne’s marvelous photographs.

    These pictures form the basis of this exhibition, which in conjunction with the Yale University Press publication, “Frank Browne, A Life Through the Lens”, will position him in his rightful place as one of the twentieth centuries great photographers //

    Went to see this exhbition yesterday and it was a real pleasure to view, with over 200 photos on display. One part on the exhibition specifically concentrates on Ireland in the 1930's & 1940's, a truly wonderful social commentry of Ireland.

    The second part concentrates on his travels in UK, Australia etc, along with a number of very evocative photos from his time in the Irish Guards during World War 1.

    It is in the Gallery at Farmleigh, Phoenix Park until Dec 23rd, open 7 days a week with free admission.

    Well worth a visit :)
