Life on film: Coalisland photographer’s remarkable photo-a-day diary of 201229th December 2012 | By: brendan64 | Comments Off on Life on film: Coalisland photographer’s remarkable photo-a-day diary of 2012
Oliver Corr has been publishing a photo through his online image blog every day since early January 2012 as part of a daily photography challenge.
His snaps range from stunning shots of rural landscapes and busy urban streets to pictures of sporting heroes, family members and old friends.
The collection acts as a remarkable personal diary on life in 2012.
Oliver said: “I decided to do the photo-a-day challenge in a moment of madness in between Christmas and New Year last year after a suggestion by a fellow photographer. I thought that it would be a good discipline.”
Some of Oliver’s favourite photos from his collection include a image of the CowParade public art event outside Belfast City Hall and a shot of a robin perched on a fence at Peatlands Park.
His trusty lens also caught the moment that Carrickmore keeper Plunkett McCallan met his hero, former Monaghan county goalkeeper Paddy Linden.
Oliver also picked out photos of personal significance, such as a snap of his friend Francie Fox, who died earlier this year.
Many of Oliver’s photos were taken in Coalisland’s CRAIC Theatre as the 50-year-old is member of the organisation’s management committee.
Oliver said he was pleased with the response his online photo blog has received.
