The Penguin and the Man

The Penguin and the Man

Graffiti on the Crawford Art Gallery about a year ago. There’s something weird going on with my feed here. I messed up the Feedburner redirect for a few days but fixed it and now posts from Holy Shmoly are appearing here too! I’ve disabled the redirect entirely now. Maybe that’ll fix it and my next […]

Black and White Metal

The metal of a school desk leg in my Dad’s garden. On a much nicer day than today, awful outside right now! Cold wind, wet. Glad I’m inside now! Aperture ƒ/1.8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 50mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/2500s

The Old Rocking Chair

The Old Rocking Chair

Old? Probably not. A quite new rocking chair outside a shop in Killrush, Co Clare back in April 2009. Photographed while we were on holiday and we were lucky to have a beautiful day. Unfortunately not every day was good but we made the best of it! Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length […]

One Eye Oscar

One Eye Oscar!

A Cup

A Cup among the the rocks

The smooth uniform texture of a cup contrasted with the rough and weathered stones of a wall on Cape Clear Island. Somewhere near where I took the previous shot I saw this cup at the side of the road and was struck by the oddness of it’s placement. Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal […]

Cape Clear Road

Church is this direction. A sign points towards the Catholic church on Cape Clear Island, off the coast of Co Cork, Ireland. After taking photos with the “Retro Camera” app on my phone in square format I decided I’d try the same with my DSLR photos. I copied my “copyright frame” script (for the GIMP) […]

Weird World

Weird World

Sometimes your world is just a little off kilter and not completely level. Photo of St. Patrick’s Street, Cork taken back in January this year. You know that a photo is of an often photographed subject when WordPress has all the tags required for it in the “most used tags” section of the Write screen… […]
