Killarney’s main street

This one’s for John. He should be able to see his surname on the far right of this picture.

Way back in February this year Killarney was going through it’s own turmoil with road works that pretty much did for traffic along this particular street. I’d like to see any SUV traverse that lot!

Girls dressed in white

Mommy and daughter are dressed all in white as they hurry around town shopping.

Taken on Patrick’s Street while I tried to dodge the previously mentioned hurrying mother and another shopper who had just been in to Awear.

Get updates by email from Flickr

I’m not sure how new this Flickr feature is, but it still has the “new” graphic next to it so I’m certain I’m sailing through unchartered waters for at least some of my visitors.

You’ve all probably been to the Recent Activity on your Flickr account by now, but tucked in at the bottom of that page is a link to Get updates by email.

Looks like Flickr can now email you when you get a new comment on a post, or when one of your contacts uploads a new photo! It’s also possible to do the former by subscribing to the feed on your recent activity page. That’s what I do, and I also use that feed in my Flickr comment importer to bring Flickr comments to this blog.

So, pick your medium, RSS or email. Which do you prefer for notifications?

Shoe Shopping

Off to the shops? Looks like these ladies, young and slightly older, have been busy already in “Shoe Zone” and other stores doing some shoe shopping. Mum looks a bit stressed, but daughter is off in her own world and probably enjoying the day!

This image was taken moments before I shot The hat and the smoke. Same car in the background, and you can see the subject of the previous photo just coming into the frame on the left!

Splendor in the grass

It’s so wonderful to see small little daisies growing up all on their own surrounded by grass everywhere. When the sun is shining and there is nothing to do except eat a nice picnic and stroll by the beach I’m in heaven.

I shot these bright little daisies down in Garrettstown, Co. Cork a few months ago.

You’ll need a model release form for that photo sir

Sometimes if you’re trying to sell photos you won’t legally be allowed to because you’ve photographed someone and their face is clear and identifiable in the image. A model release form is a contract between you and that person allowing you to sell that image.

Here’s a generic model release form for download that could be used for most situations. The language might be a bit frightening but that paragraph of text is so dense I suspect many people won’t read through it properly.

There are plenty more release forms to download so you don’t have any excuse to be caught out without one! The istockphoto release form looks to be more complete at first glance, but you would have to remove their logo and change the wording slightly if you want to use it for other agencies or stock sites.

Boy all alone on the street

It’s strange how you can be stuck in your own little world and not be aware of anything around you.

All around this boy were couples, either hand in hand, walking together or even framing him in the middle of the image, but I’m struck by his solitary movement through the street. He look lost in thought.
