SF AWS 1909

SF AWS 1909 A fire hydrant in San Francisco. Given the history of the city, there are hydrants everywhere ..

Paul Street by night

Paul Street by night In front of Tesco on Paul Street, Cork by night. This is a long exposure show I made by putting my camera on the ground and leaning the lens on my wallet. Judging by the lighting it was probably a small aperture too. Love that effect!

Berwick Fountain

Berwick Fountain The Berwick Fountain was originally built in 1860 but was taken down and removed while construction went on in the Grand Parade, Cork. Here it is almost ready, although I’d swear they moved it a few feet .. Cross over the Grand Parade for the last time passing the Berwick Fountain (1860), which […]

Colourful houses

Colourful houses Colourful buildings on the Grand Parade look out onto the continuing construction on the street. Who knows when it’ll end?

Construction cranes at night

Construction cranes at night Cranes over the construction site at the old Guy and Company site make for a striking image at night. This was taken from the Tesco multi-storey car park, a few metres away from where I shot Clouds move at night. Yesterday we had to bring the car for a service so […]

San Francisco Streets

San Francisco Streets A cyclist races across across an almost empty junction in San Francisco. I just love the sign on top of the building. Totally out of place amid the beautiful architecture and detail of it’s resting place.

Bull’s Tavern

Bull’s Tavern The logo on his shirt, "Bull’s Tavern" caught my eye as we waited on the sidewalk for the lights to change. This is near Union Square in San Francisco. Check out the Macy’s sign! Shopping heaven for those so addicted.

Caroline Street ESB Station

Caroline Street ESB Station This used to be an electricity switching station for the trams that traveled around Cork city and suburbs many years ago. This building was the location for Stanley Super 800′s Gatecrashing video many month’s ago. I still have some super shots of the interior to post. I’ll eventually get around to […]

Mannix and Culhane

Mannix and Culhanne Mannix and Culhanne on Washington St, Cork.

Construction in the old warehouse

Construction in the old warehouse This is the ground floor of the old warehouse on Father Mathew Quay in Cork. For years it lay rotting away, an eyesore just behind the South Mall, but it’s being developed now. I guess there are apartments going in there, but I recall seeing only tiny windows on the […]

Santa & Cole in Cork

Santa & Cole in Cork Santa came to Cork early this year, sort of. This metal work is from somewhere on the Grand Parade in Cork. It’s designed by the firm of Santa & Cole, obviously, and seems to be a perfect place for people to throw their litter unfortunately.

Fitzgerald’s Park Reflection

The house in the bushes

The house in the bushes This is the side of the small gatehouse in Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork.

Sometimes I just miss talking to you

Sometimes I just miss talking to you A sticker on the back of a STOP sign reads, “Sometimes I just miss talking to you” and is signed “The 508″. A message of love for someone missing, or mindless graffiti? What makes the image for me is the couple walking by at the bottom of the […]

Engarde! Construction continues in Cork

Engarde! Construction continues in Cork Will the construction work in Cork ever end? They just finished digging up the end of Washington Street and Grande Parade when they dig up that busy corner again. Not quite as bad as the ESB or Bord Gais running a trench through brand new tarmac and leaving a broken […]
