  • Solo in the Park October 21, 2021

    Spring and early summer 2020 during lockdown were a quiet and peaceful time with some great weather so Ben played solo songs in Dublin’s lovely Phoenix park and recorded them on a simless eyefone and uploaded them to utube via wifi at home .. Like this original song by Ben, ‘Vacation.’

    He’s also getting interested in vintage lenses and cameras—trying to keep sane!
