Killarney’s main street

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 […]

Girls dressed in white

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 […]

Shoe Shopping

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 […]

Splendor in the grass

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, […]

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 […]

Boy all alone on the street

Boy all alone 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. […]

The lady’s red boots

The lady’s red boots Sometimes on a cloudy and dark day something unexpected can brighten your day. These sexy red boots had that effect and I quickly grabbed this shot! I can’t imagine the pain of walking in shoes with such high heels however. *shudder*

Bring out the gimp!

Some people find the name of the most popular open source and GPLed image manipulation program slightly funny or rude, others as a derogatory term, while others just see it as the acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Programme. I think a lot of English speakers fall into the first or second camp unfortunately. Wikipedia has […]

A child’s smile

A child’s smile A smile brightens up anyone’s day. When it’s a child smiling it’s extra special. This was shot on St. Patrick’s Bridge, Cork just after the St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 17th. The crowds opened up for a few seconds and I briefly saw father and son.

When was the last time you used backups?

“Click! Click!” The sound we all dread to hear. The sound of a hard disk failing. I bought a Western Digital “My Book” external drive a few weeks ago and moved my Backuppc backup files onto it. That freed up a 250GB SATA drive which I promptly filled with all my photos from 2000 to […]

Sky High Cork City

Sky High Cork City Cork City as seen from the top of the carpark on the Grand Parade. The big ugly white building is the tax office on O’Sullivan’s Quay, the church is a disused one nearby. I’m not sure of the name off the top of my head, anyone? Technique: 1. Use two layers, […]

18,000 people nude in public

This is what 18,000 naked people look like. This is old news to some, but I missed it at the time. How did they manage to organise so many people so well? Photographer Spencer Tunick created the images in Mexico City. His next project is sometime this month in Amsterdam. Anyone going or gone to […]

Care and attention

Care and attention It was February. The sun was trying to shine but it was a little nippy out. You need to wrap up against the cold breeze! Man and daughter or maybe granddaughter pictured on Patrick’s Street in Cork.
