Commander Hadfield

My first post of 2014.  Got sent along by Tourism Ireland to photograph former International Space Station commander, Canadian astronaut, Chris Hadfield yesterday. He’s in Ireland to promote tourism here, filming  a series of three short films on local attractions and sporting culture.  Hard to believe I used to watch and photograph him and the crew of the ISS flying through space, and here he is, standing in the rain, four feet from my lens. One of the few famous people I’ve met over the years, that I think really deserves to be famous.
