Green Seaweed

Green Seaweed Green seaweed grows on stumps of wood on the beach at Youghal. I can only guess that these stumps are a protection against the powerful force of the tides. Aren’t they? Check out the Youghal category for another shot of this beach!

Arrival of the L

Arrival of the L I love capturing motion and stillness in one frame and shooting underground in a subway station is perfect because: low light, fast moving train with bright internal lights, waiting passengers. I think I took this in one of the stations under State Street, Chicago. Have a great time at the blog […]

Fixing up the Apple Store

Fixing up the Apple Store Workers pictured in the Apple Store Magnificent Mile, Chicago. The top of the image is the front and side of the store. This is the store in which I was asked not take photos in 2003!

Bent

Bent Walk by the River Lee in Cork City and you’ll come across vertical bars embedded in the river wall. Here’s one that was bent out of shape by some force, possibly a long time ago. In the background is the Cork Opera House. The texture and grain of the bar appeals to me. It’s […]

Ladder to nowhere

Ladder to nowhere Castle Street, Cork on Saturday. Workmen went off to lunch and left their ladder. Thanks for the positive feedback yesterday. It was great to see so much interest in a photo!

Seaside Wall and Rocks

Stop Go Where to Go?

The Signs in Blarney

The Look, Dad, The Yawn

The Look, Dad, The Yawn An experiment in high-key cross processing. Pictured on Patrick Street, Cork. Howto and what is cross processing? Cross-processing has been around for as long as film has, and is a way of making your images more interesting and abstract by literally mixing colours. I followed the simple instructions here which […]

Sunlit Web

Sunlit Web Sunlit Web On a foggy morning a web will sparkle in the ambient light because of the moisture in the air. I spent an inordinate amount of time crouched down shooting this dead bush!

Road Narrows

Road Narrows Taken in Monkstown, Co. Cork last night. Camera was handheld. I waited for a car to go past and with the camera set to AV mode and the flash on, I shot a 25 second exposure. I moved the camera from side to side to make the rear lights of the vehicle moreinteresting! […]
