J.H.L. Photography - John H. Luxton

    My entire life has revolved around transport and industrial history related interests. Since around the age of 5 photography has been an inseparable associated past time.

    My mother's bakalite Kodak Brownie 127 camera was the first camera I used around 1964. I received my own up to date plastic Brownie 127 in 1965 which had film / shutter release interlock preventing unwanted double or even triple exposures!

    By my early teens I had the loan of my grandfather's 35mm Praktica Nova 1 SLR. A succession of mainly Rollei, Contax and Leica cameras followed my Grandfather's old Praktica with the switch from 35mm to digital taking place in 2002.

    Today I use a range of Leica cameras - Digilux 3, V-lux 3 and X1.

    Since 1995 I have run the Irish Sea Shipping web site at www.irishseashipping.com which features many of my ship photographs.

    I hope you enjoy the photographs on these pages.

the mining company of ireland in 1824 and by 1840 was considered to be one of the richest copper mines.tankardstown was established in 1850 and the engine houses seen here were built around 1860. from 1865 a decline in the mines fortunes set in. the mines closed in 1879 and the cornish engines were sold for scrap leaving the engine houses to decay gradually until the establishment of the geopark in the early years of the 21st century. aida cruises aidaaura alba albion nimbus alexander von humboldt allihies ancient cross animals annie moore anthony ap falmouth ara libertad archaeology
