My Home from Home

What do you do when you get home from holiday? Put a clamp on the wheels of your caravan! I could make a joke about cleaning the wheels of their home, but that’s an obvious one and I’m in a hurry tonight. Got a surprise birthday party to go to soon! Shot somewhere near Slough […]

Tourists outside Windsor Castle

Tourists gathered outside the gates of Windsor Castle photograph each other smiling and posing for holiday photos. We parked outside the town, grabbed a bus up the road and walked around a bit. Unfortunately the castle itself was closed. The town of Windsor is definitely worth a visit. It’s a huge tourist attraction though so […]

N0bama

I’d vote for the husky. BarCamp Cork II was brilliant. I got my talk on WordPress and AJAX over and done with early on in the day, mingled, fixed @icedcoffee’s Tweet Tweet plugin and updated the Tweet Tweet plugin to support Twitter notification via O2 Ireland’s free webtexts. Thanks Enda for the u/p while I […]

Tigh Mor ar Oilean Chleire

When you walk up one of the hills from the North Harbour in Cape Clear Island you’ll walk past this house at the top of the incline. It’s been there forever, and 15 years ago, the back of the house was a small shop selling sweets and other goodies. It’s a B&B now I think, […]

Directions to Blarney Castle

Blarney Castle is that way. Go out the gate, turn right, turn left and park. Right in front of you. I got back to Ireland yesterday afternoon. A mostly uneventful flight home, except for some problems with check in and I had to check in twice more. On the last attempt I got bumped to […]

Cobh Street Entertainer

Cobh Street Entertainer

A singer outside the Commodore Hotel in Cobh kept the crowd entertained and attracted the attention of my son Adam who wasn’t happy unless he was outside listening to him. Photos of Breckenridge, Colorado to follow, although I didn’t take that many. Too busy to leave the house much unfortunately! Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS […]

An Siopa Beag

An Siopa Beag ar Oilean Chleire is the small shop on Cape Clear Island in The Club in the North Harbour. It’s more than a shop of course, and tables are set up outside for customers to enjoy their tea or whatever they’re eating. Aperture ƒ/13 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 400 […]

chains-of-fishing

The chains of fishing

Chains on a quayside in Schull, near where yesterday’s shot was taken, I think. I’m in Colorado, at 9,00ft. The air is noticeably thinner here. Won’t be any running about or physical exercise for a few days! Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/80s

Fishing rope and tackle

Fishing tackle in Co Cork somewhere. Can’t remember where now! Love the texture of this sort of equipment, especially in black and white. Aperture ƒ/5 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/60s

An club agus an cnoc

The club and the hill. This is the North Harbour in Cape Clear Island. The club is familiar to all who visit this part of the world, as are the hills unfortunately. This particular hill overlooks the whole harbour and feels like a 45 degree struggle at times. I still have memories of climbing it […]
