Windswept

Windswept in Reykjavik

One of the many buildings in Reykjavik, Iceland that are battered by the harsh weather there. You wouldn’t know it by looking at the sky here but it was quite cold when I took the photo. I think it was at the end of a short photowalk around the city centre when our fingers were […]

Telecom Club

Telecom Club

The Telecom Club on McCurtain Street, Cork. Telecom Éireann was the state telecoms monopoly until other companies came into the country some years ago but in it’s current state, Éircom, they still own most (all?) the copper phone lines that go into homes here. I’m not sure of the history of the Telecom Club in […]

The London Eye

The London Eye

While on my way to Iceland a few months ago I had about 10 hours to kill while in London. Thankfully John Godley collected me at the airport and gave me a quick tour of the city centre! I got loads of photos of the London Eye, here’s one of them. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon […]

Four points Cadiz

Four Points Cadiz

Cadiz is a city and port in the Iberian Peninsula in Spain. The centre of the city is filled with old alleys and narrow streets. Here’s I shot straight upwards at the junction of 4 such alleys, I think it was here near the local cathedral. Many years ago I took a similar photo of […]

Yellow and Pink

Yellow and Pink

A small corner house in Reykjavik, Iceland. Love the colours. There was a music lesson going full swing when I passed there. I think they were beating drums. Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 48mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/160s

Viking Longboat

Sólfar, The Sun Voyager

This is a metal statue in Reykjavík of what looks like a Viking longboat but according to the Wikipedia page is in fact a “dreamboat”. It is a common misunderstanding that Sun Voyager is a Viking ship. It is quite understandable that many tourists think like this when travelling in Iceland, the land of the […]

Derelict Reykjavik Highrises

Derelict Reykjavik Highrises

What I’ve seen of Reykjavik so far has been really nice. Buildings are colourful, the streets are for the most part well maintained and the city centre has cobbled streets so it’s pleasant to walk around. While on our photowalk today we passed these buildings on the sea front. I thought they were just another […]

Abandoned Interior

Abandoned Interior

The interior of a cottage at the picturesque Brandon Creek on Slea Head, County Kerry. Outside there’s a planning permission notice, dated August 2008 and written in Irish. I presume the owner is no longer in a hurry to develop his property. All he wanted to do was replace the roof and add an extension. […]

County Hall Deconstructed

County Hall Deconstructed

County Hall in Cork, as it was in 2005. Not so long ago it was flooded but it looks vaguely impressive when seen from certain viewpoints since the facelift it received in this photo. Shame it’s built on a flood plain. Aperture ƒ/22 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 18mm ISO 200 Shutter speed 1/50s
