Hi there, I’m Simon.
I’m Simon Robinson, an Irish photographer based in Dublin. I enjoy all forms of photography, formerly a hobby during my first career as a geologist who became a geophysicist and earth scientist.
I’ve always liked long distance walking. So much so that I had planned to walk to Rome from Manchester in 2020 with a friend. Pandemic overtook us and the walk was repeatedly postponed. As of December 2022, we plan to cycle to Rome in September 2023, pandemic willing.
This journal was started as practice for journaling the Rome walk. It started with thoughts seeded by events in my day, some of which might have been better kept in. It was never about cats nor demons.
I stopped making scarves and started publishing monthly chapbooks (see fabhappy.com/simonrobinson).
I used to blog about my walking while fundraising during training for charity walking events.
