Jesus Christ still loves you

Jesus Christ still loves you A year ago I photographed this man holding the sign saying Jesus Christ Loves You in San Francisco. Amazingly he’s still in the same spot. That’s dedication for you!

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.

Shih Tzu and the Ball

Shih Tzu and the Ball Shih Tzu dogs love to play ball! We only found this out after a dog trainer came to the house and “ruffled his fur” a bit and in the process Oscar became a lot more relaxed. Now he adores playing ball and even one mention of, “where’s the ball?” and […]

Children on the merry-go-round

Children on the merry-go-round Children smile and laugh as the fairground ride goes around and around! Linda and myself spent a good few minutes shooting this ride. I combined a long exposure and flash to capture the action and hoped to get a glimpse of a child’s smile. I think I was lucky to get […]

Shadows on Powell St

Shadows on Powell St The shadow cast by a young man waiting to cross the street forms the main subject of this unusual image. Sort of messes with your head doesn’t it?

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 […]

Lysfoss heads into Cork

Lysfoss heads into Cork A large cargo ship of the Lys Line company called "Lysfoss" makes it’s way into Cork while a small fishing boat is tied to the pier in Cobh. In the distance the harbour pilot can be seen heading for the small harbour in Cobh. It’s fascinating what comes up on Google: […]

Contax G1

Contax G1 This camera belongs to Alkos, who I met on Monday night and it’s what he shoots everything on his photoblog with. He and his girlfriend had gone to the bar and I decided I liked the draughts board pattern on the table and composed this still life.

Alkos and Ewa

Alkos and Ewa I met Alkos and Ewa last night for a drink or two in the Old Oak. Alkos has his own photoblog, PAD where he posts some great street shots so I was looking forward to meeting him. We had a few drinks and chatted for a few hours before we had to […]

Clouds move at night

Clouds move at night Clouds fly across the sky in this nighttime shot of Cork City. A crane is in the middle distance, practically a symbol of the City at this stage. The building site in the foreground is on the old site of the Guy And Company building. There’s St. Anne’s Church or Shandon […]

Is it a bird, is it a plane, no! It’s the sky!

Is it a bird, is it a plane, no! It’s the sky! I have no idea what they were looking at because there wasn’t anything flying overhead. Better than waiting for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade to start I suppose! Taken on Paddy’s Day this year on Patrick’s Street, or Panna as it’s locally known.

Oscar! Come here!

Oscar! Come here! Imagine the scene. Out on a pier, I’m lying on the wooden beams over the low tide surf on the rocks below and I’m calling to my dog. Thankfully Oscar obliged and I made this photo as he walked towards me with his tongue half-hanging out of his mouth. There’s Jacinta in […]

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 […]
