The Evening Echo seller

This man has been selling the Evening Echo on Cork’s Patrick’s Street for years. Here’s a photo of him back in August 2005!

Couminole View

Looking out to sea from the steep walkway down to Couminole Strand on Slea Head, the Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry.

The film Ryan’s Daughter was filmed in this area and the beach behind me was featured in the gun running scene! Check it out on Youtube. About 2 minutes into the second clip you can see some of the rocks pictured above. The scenes where the IRA and locals run across rocks with waves crashing on rocks in the background was definitely not filmed on the same beach however. Even at low tide the beach can be crossed in about 4 steps.

Sun peaking out in SF

The sun is hidden by a tall building in San Francisco while mother and daughter wait for the lights to change.

My laughing baby

My little baby, Adam, was in great mood when I shot this in the Castle Hotel, Blarney a few weeks ago.

The camera in the Tardis

Darn. I only realised halfway through last week that my camera was still on San Francisco time. 8 hours difference which means early morning photos and evening photos are on the wrong day. Time travelling.

Ramones Fan

A Ramones fan walks down Patrick’s Street. I love the eyes of the poster looking out ..

Energy is trouble and useful

An ESB van passes a pole with a Rossport Shell-to-sea campaign flyer on it.

Shell want to bring oil to land at Rossport in Co. Mayo, and the ESB are massive consumers of oil, gas and coal in their electricity generation business.

The odd look

A couple walking along Winthrop Street in Cork have very expressive faces.
