Falls of Bruar

Edit this
Falls of Bruar, Blair Atholl. Hello everyone, this is @kierandodds taking @burndiary to Scotland.We headed south this morning, down the A9 in the wake of trucks and motorhomes. Around halfway is a shopping outlet selling tweed, multi-coloured cord trousers and fishing tackle for the discerning highland laird. This is the heart of the Scotland’s sporting estates that have cleared the landscape of trees in the pursuit of deer hunting. Behind the busy car park is a path that winds up a steep and stunning gorge that few venture up which offers a different vision for the landscape.#scotland #highlands #recreation #lost #found #invention #innovation #everydayuk #iphone6 #family #community #myth #folklore #culture #connections #iphoneonly @panospictures

Sky

Easter rainbow, DornochHello everyone, this @kierandodds taking @burndiary to Scotland.The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome. Easter, if true, is awesome, terrifying and hopeful. This landscape refreshed my wonder today.#scotland #highlands #recreation #lost #found #invention #innovation #everydayuk #iphone6 #family #community #peoplemakeglasgow #myth #folklore #culture #connections #iphoneonly @panospictures

Easter Spring Break

Last minutes of Easter spring break sun goes down goodbyes hugs promises to meet soon at Jobos surf beach Puerto Rico. Sweet vibes and the big warm. Everybody headed back to class or to work. I am already at work and my education never over. I’m only a bit nostalgic since the last of my family left this morning. Good vibes here in Puerto Rico. I’ll stay a bit to work on BeachGames. ‪#‎Jobos‬ ‪#‎puertorico‬ ‪#‎springbreak‬

Saturday night

Saturday night El Batey after hours bar. In the last 3 months I’ve shot a lot in this bar. It’s like a movie set bar and some claim the oldest bar in Old San Juan. I am leaving San Juan today for the west coast of PR and a quieter time. #fujixpro2 #puertorico #sanjuan

Not Jesus

1919333_10156708017045022_2477813867825676575_n This is not Jesus. This is a representation of one of the two allegedly common criminals who were crucified with Jesus. Re-enacted last night in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. In my years of photographing the Spanish cultural diaspora into the Americas, I’ve photographed many a Good Friday procession in many Catholic countries. So for about 3 hours last night I was totally immersed. Intense. And of course I have many pictures of a cross carrying actor Jesus whipped while walking the streets and eventually symbolically hung in front of the church. I will post one of those as well. Yet the odd juxtaposition of this secondary actor with a crowd paying no attention to him caught my eye. This just after sunset light was surreal. Even more so with college spring break fiestas raging in bars a half block away. All this and more coming up in next IG posts. #Easter #goodfriday #sanjuan #puertorico #fujixpro2

Sheep

Sheep, Fearn. Hello everyone, this @kierandodds taking @burndiary to Scotland.Spot the odd one out. That sheep has a selective advantage in muddy fields.#scotland #highlands #recreation #lost #found #invention #innovation #everydayuk #iphone6 #family #community #peoplemakeglasgow #myth #folklore #culture #connections #iphoneonly @panospictures

Tain

Edit this
Hazards, Tain. Hello everyone, this is @kierandodds taking @burndiary to Scotland.Consider the humble drain. This basic structure has changed highland society more than most. It drove economic development and the global diaspora as bogs became fields capable of agriculture in the 18th & 19th century. The battle continues against bogification (is that a term?) as is seen here on Tain golf course. One benefit- it creates a palette of colour. #scotland #highlands #recreation #lost #found #invention #innovation #everydayuk #iphone6 #family #community #peoplemakeglasgow #myth #folklore #culture #connections #iphoneonly @panospictures

Bar hopping

Bar hopping Old San Juan. Hey it’s Easter and its Spring Break. Lots going on. Praise Jesus and I’ll have another double rum and coke. No philosophical conflict at all. Good buzz all around and everybody can have their own reasons. For sure PR is the big warm overall. Family oriented. I am bar hopping with family. We all say goodbye tomorrow. I stay to work, yet I’ll be sad to see everyone go. Priceless times. Another double please. Amen. ‪#‎sanjuan‬ ‪#‎puertorico‬

Pics wall

Everybody gets their picture taken in front of this wall in Old San Juan. It’s near where I’m staying so I see it 10 times a day and night coming and going. I know this must be by a famous artist here yet nobody I’ve run into can tell me . But I bet in 5 minutes somebody here on IG will let us know.#puertorico #sanjuan #iPhone
