Cassettes

I wonder if the teenager wearing this hoodie realised the irony of wearing a garment decorated with cassette images, a piece of technology he may not ever have used. The Wikipedia page has a lot more to say on the subject.

This was shot outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street, Cork while I wheeled Adam around in his buggy.

Ooops, someone noticed the Technorati rank

Justin added this site to his Technorati list of Irish blogs and was a little shocked at what he saw. Damien noticed too 🙂

Actually, I don’t get many hits from blogs despite the inflated numbers on that list. It seems nobody is curious to know who that “Donncha” chap is. In the latest release of WordPress, all those links were replaced by links to the Codex and other WordPress related sites.

A girl’s bag

Two girls stop to talk on Patrick’s Street, Cork. That bag looks uncomfortable. What do women put in their bags?

Internet Cafe

The Internet Cafe is that way.

Sign is on The South Mall in Cork.

PS. GIMP 2.4.1 was released yesterday. It’s a bugfix release!

Waves at Couminole

The waves crash on to the beach at Couminole on Slea Head, Co. Kerry.

Standing where I was when I took this image was scary. Huge waves lifting up water to head height before crashing down mere feet in front of me.

Is that Skellig Michael in the background?

The Kerry Flag

Kerry were still celebrating their win in the All Ireland when we stayed in Dingle a few weeks back and flags were flying everywhere!

Shadows on Slea Head

Shadows from the broken clouds above play over the landscape on Slea Head in Co. Kerry. Every moment was a different photo until the rain eventually caught up with us!

Halloween Pumpkin Head

A Halloween Pumpkin Head or Jack-o’-lantern stares off at the community hall where Mallow Camera Club meet each Monday.

I spotted the head after our last meeting. It’s hand-held in low light so I had to pump up the ISO to get a steady shot.

Montague Burton the Tailor of Taste

Like the stone laid by Barbara Jessie Burton in 1927, this doorway probably goes unnoticed by most people on Prince’s Street. It’s right next to the stone linked above, but the door is usually closed.
I spotted this colourful mosaic out of the corner of my eye and recognised the Burton name from my previous post.
