These photographs were taken at the back of our family home in Omagh, Northern Ireland. On a frosty moonlit night in early December I set up my tripod, found a small LED torch and set the exposure on my camera to 30 seconds. The twelve pictures show successive attempts at trying to get the message correct. After twelve attempts not only was I freezing but the physical demands of running back and forth combined with the mental challenge of writing back to front within the exposure time was enough to make me settle for something that was legible enough to get my message across!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Through my participation on the US-NI Mentorship Program I was fortunate enough to be invited to a special lunch hosted by The Worldwide Ireland Funds to present US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her services to Northern Ireland.
The event was held on Friday 7th December 2012 at the Titanic Suite in Titanic Belfast.
