Hi there, I’m Simon.
I’m Simon Robinson, an Irish photographer based in Dublin. Formerly a geologist and a geophysicist for over four decades, I’ve always loved photography.
I’ve always liked long distance walking too. So much so that I had planned to walk to Rome from Manchester in 2020 with a friend. Pandemic overtook us and the walk has been postponed to
2021 202? As of January 2022, we have started to plan a campaign for this year, pandemic willing.
This journal was started as practice for journaling the walk. It’s about the thoughts seeded by events in my day, some of which might have been better kept in. It’s not about cats nor demons. I’ll try to keep it going for the year. And make and sell scarves and chapbooks in parallel (see fabhappy.com/simonrobinson).
I used to blog about my walking while fundraising during training for charity walking events.
