I saw something amazing last night over the Irish Sea. A devilish red sunset which nearly melted our plane. There were towering castles in the distant which were made of thick black clouds. Below us were rolling hills of puffy things. God was simply exhaling. This picture isn’t mine, but it’s the closest thing I could…… Continue reading God Exhaling Over the Irish Sea

A picture I snapped of a sunset in Dover, Massachusetts has recently been published by Boston.com, an affiliate of The Boston Globe and The New York Times. See the picture at Boston.com
Flying into Dublin over a year ago, our plane glided through a majestic sky that was truly awe inspiring. I use a quote from Boston native Ralph Waldo Emerson, a transcendental philosopher, poet, and humanitarian for inspiration.
What are your feelings when watching this? Are you happy or sad? Motivated or depressed? Something totally different? I’d appreciate your feedback in the comments section. Thank you. Related articles Film-work: “Nothingness” (short film based in Ireland) (drcraigconsidine.wordpress.com)
I usually take the 6:30 pm (Boston time) flight back to Dublin, but the flight this time around was delayed 3 hours due to bad weather. If it wasn’t for the delay, taking these pictures would’ve been impossible. We were lucky enough to fly over the emerald isle as the sun was rising. These were…… Continue reading Ireland in the sky
The image above is of a field of crescent-shaped dunes in the northern polar region of Mars. Each dune is about 100 metres across. The image was captured by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, released in July 2012. As suggested by Jonathan Jones in the Guardian, it is science, not art, ‘that now provides the most…… Continue reading Creativity: Is science more beautiful than art?
As part of Journey into America – September 2008 at the Islamic Center of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I was lucky enough to film right up there.
I’ve just created a new page to showcase some of the photographs I’ve taken throughout the course of my travels since 2007. You can check it here or see above.
I rented a cheap little car and was told ‘not to go off-roading’. But what did that mean? What is considered ‘off-roading’? These are two questions I certainly contemplated before taking the car down a dangerous path to the famous and isolated Kambia Beach in the middle-of-nowhere, Santorini. Would I make the car back up…… Continue reading My ‘Dirt road in Santorini’ video
I’ve done my fair share of traveling since graduating from college in 2007, from researching around the U.S. for one year with Ambassador Ahmed, to my own personal adventures throughout Europe and eastern Asia. I’ve been to some amazing places, from the Château de Padiès in Southern France, to the hills of Honolulu, to the famous…… Continue reading Photo-journal documenting trip to Athens and Santorini
Stumbled across this powerful voice on the street while coming home from a night out on the town. Quite impressive, though I can’t translate one word.
Hagia Sophia was perhaps the most beautiful building I’ve ever seen in person. This mosaic of Jesus was one of my favourite parts of the trip.
I shot this in December 2011
It’s a true shame I can’t remember its name, but like most mosques in Istanbul, this one was beautiful. The best part of the visit was the complete silence (though that really doesn’t come across in this video). Strangely, you will also notice the banging going on in the background. I feel like it’s well…… Continue reading Beautiful mosque in Istanbul
On May 5th, I’m packing my bags, which will absolutely include one of my all-time favourites, Plato’s Dialogues, for a much needed vacation away from the cold and rainy (but still beautiful!) island of Ireland. It has been a hell of a few months with fieldwork and editing this Journal, so this trip couldn’t have…… Continue reading 8 spots I seek to visit around Greece
Baraka, a word which means ‘blessing’ in a multitude of languages (it’s also a Sufi word which means ‘breath of life’), is a film directed by Ron Fricke in 1992. Why do I like ‘Baraka’ so much? Perhaps it’s because it has absolutely no story line, or at least not an overt one. The film…… Continue reading One of my favourite films: ‘Baraka’
