Peter Donegan – Profile Pictures

peter donegan

I had gone in search of some feedback for the website recently. I felt it needed a few tweeks here and there. Although not via comments, the answers came back in very I didn’t wish to sound like I was insulting you sort of a format.

Outside of the sites text it seemed I was missing some really good high quality photographs of myself.

You are after all the business. You are Peter Donegan. I don’t wanna go searching through a website to see what the man I will do business with looks like….

Fair point. I had some good images, but they were very random…. I rang John Mc Williams. John took this photograph that I’ve been using for some time now. He’s also a good friend. Honest enough to say I like and because. But more than that he is also an extremely talented photographer.

We met on a Sunday. Spent a few hours together. As always with John, it was also time that I enjoyed I should add. We narrowed it down to variations from about 10 images.

The beauty about them is that because the quality of those taken is so high they can become black and white, low to high resolution, head shots or back to colour again at the flick of a button.

Whether it’s for media usage or just for the site…. I have to say to the time spent was a very wise investment on my part. Of course I’m just one of a host of stars Mr McWilliams has had the honour to photograph 😉

Is that Carly Simon I hear playing…. Thanks John 🙂

Vodafone Cheer Up Ireland….

I wrote about it over on Ballyboughal.net [thats my home town] but whilst I was out on a photowalk around Dublin City, on a Sunday afternoon, the landscape looked so pretty. Pretty amazing to be quite honest. [I’ve put some more pics of the day over on Pix.ie]

For those not from Dublin or Ireland and don’t know, the above is a seating area beside a bus stop, right beside the quays 😉 Pretty amazing ? It makes me smile and I must add looks so perfect surrounded by snow….

By the way if you are wondering why this is on my landscaping greeny blog…. well first today was very much about the great outdoors. And it was just that…. great and outdoors. Second…. anything that is to do with people being happy deserves a standing ovation 😉 see below….

The photowalk as a by the way was with thanks to Vodafone and their photo competition Cheer Up Ireland where you upload pictures of what makes you happy/cheers you up. The prize for the overall competition is a €3,000 shopping spree at Dundrum shopping centre.

A big note of thanks to the lads at Simply Zesty for a great day. Great to see people smiling…. :) Thanks Dena…..

It took a while for me to get this and if you want to know the full story of how and why – you’ll have to read about why Peter Donegan was a bit shy here…

If you would like to get involved with Peter Donegan and Bloom 2009 via sponsorship or any other proposal you may have – please do not hesitate to contact me. Of course you can guess what I am doing!

I bought this plant around five years ago. But only recently has it started to show its true beauty. An aged, almost antique piece for the garden The ‘corkscrew hazel’ as it is commonly known produces tiny catkins which develop around the winter period.

I found it very difficult to get a really good photograph – but still, another little gem of intrigue for the garden. Valentines day is not so far off. If you’re not really one for the 10,000 euro bunch of chrysanthemums [including delivery..?], then this ones for you. Enjoy!
