What’s in the bag? A young lady checked her bag just outside Paul Street Shopping Centre in Cork. Wide angle lens makes for weird contortions but I like it!
I have just installed the hotlink builder plugin for WordPress. It provides a basic level of protection for the images on your blog from leechers visitors who come via Google and MSN looking for images. At least some of them are going to right-click on an image to use it in their own blogs, sites […]
Instead of obsessing over composition, is the flash head pointed in the right way, what about aperture, and is my ISO too high, I’m going to try to take an ordinary photo in P or even Automatic mode. It won’t be a scene of immense natural beauty in a wilderness somewhere, or it may not […]
2 bikes in Daunt Square His and hers bikes locked up against a pole in Daunt Square, Cork last February. Looking at this with fresh eyes, I was lucky to catch the people behind the bikes without at least one of them standing behind the pole! I love the expressions of the two girls closest […]

Just in case you hadn’t noticed, the Flickr Blog is now hosted at WordPress.com! If you’re logged into the site you’ll see the familiar blue admin bar at the top of the page. The latest post has some great shots of the STS-117 Atlantis launch. Better move your feed reader to the new feed!
Pedestrians this way Walking through a building site can be a hazardous task, especially when it’s one of the main streets of a city. Thankfully there are signs to lead the way through the maze of construction equipment, pot holes, broken paving and pipes. And then you get to the construction site. Image made in […]
