View Of The Pyramids From My Apartment Balcony In Cairo.

We didn't know how lucky we were. Taken with my Nikon F2 and a 200 mm lens in 1974.

Lovely Pic

What a terrible shame that Phyllis and Lynda were not there when this photo was taken.

Poster For The Theatre In Bahia Brazil

This is a poster from a theatre evening in Bahia with the local Alliance Francaise. I played a piece in a production of Hamlet and the lady pictured here who was one of my friends wives played too.  She was a keen actress and played in a few pieces in Bahia besides this one. We all had a wonderful time.
The bottom picture is a picture of my dear friend Noelle who somehow got me into this project and who also played in quite a few plays in Bahia. We spent many afternoons and some evenings when I was laid up chatting. They were nice quiet and innocent times. I loved chatting to her. We are still in touch  36 years later. The bonds of deep and true friendship last decades as it does for all of the friends I made in those wonderful times of travel and foreign lands when, as expatriates, we were all in the same boat together.
I particularly like this photo of her because it shows her very dramatic and dynamic presence.

Mam At Around Nineteen Years Old.

The lovely Mumsie in her teens. I don't know if she was married at this point but I think this photo was taken at around the same time as the one of Dad and also in the same studio ( I know 'cos I have the original ) a little head turner if ever there was one I'll say and she still looks beautiful.

My Father and I.

Dad's original Ross Studio Dublin photo.

These photos were taken in Ross Studios in Dublin some seventeen years apart. I had not been born yet when Dad had his photo taken. Amazing, same pose !
