Abstract

Seaside Bubbles

Seaside Bubbles Bubbles in the incoming tide break on the sandy beach at Garretstown about a month ago. I turned this black and white because I love the abstract feel to the bubbles and it makes the grain of the sand beneath more visible. I had to jump up to avoid getting splashed moments later […]

California, San Francisco CA

California, San Francisco CA California, a street in San Francisco near where we were staying last August. This was taken after a great lunch in a nearby restaurant with some of the WordPress guys in a Burmese restaurant – Mark Jaquith, Markr (the support guy formally known as Podz), Andy and of course Matt. Excellent […]

Joyce and the Spire

Joyce and the Spire James Joyce, forever forced to look upon the Spire on O’Connell Street Dublin. Here’s a humorous look at the names of the statues and monuments in Dublin. I had heard that the Spire was nicknamed the “Stiletto in the Ghetto”, but I hadn’t heard it called, “North Pole”! Overhead wires destroy […]

Purple Sky

Purple Sky (print) After shooting the Tenacious I looked behind me and smiled as I saw a great reflection of the beautiful sky on this car. Wisps of cloud filtered the sun momentarily as I captured this image and a bit of post-processing helped to make the reflection stand out!

Run for the bus!

Press the button

Press the button A doorbell on a building on the seafront in Cobh. I can’t remember which building exactly but it was down in the direction of the train station. It’s scorchio in Ireland now and it’s great! We adopted Oscar yesterday and the poor dog was upset last night until we brought him for […]

Seaweed rope

Seaweed rope I like the dreamy diffused glow of this image. It was shot down in Inchadony Beach a few weeks back. Howto: First of all, I had to straighten the horizon because it was at a precarious angle. I used two layers, I saturated the colours slightly in the bottom layer to bring out […]

Ireland Today: construction

Ireland Today: construction Ireland today is defined by construction. A huge portion of the Irish economy is driven by the residential building trade. An acre of land can go for €50m and up in Dublin. Two rate hikes by the ECB hasn’t dampened Irish interest in owning their own property. This crane was pictured at […]
