A crow atop a STOP sign on The Grand Parade, Cork.
Shot using a fairly high ISO but bicubic resizing smudges the noise away!
Have you ever thought about how you’re manipulated by the brands?
Two motorbikes parked on the South Mall attracted my attention especially as a strong sun reflected off the clean chrome.
Yes, I know there’s a weird diagonal, yes it is distracting. Yes, it is intentional. Enjoy!
The Shandon bell tower of St. Anne’s Church is one of the most recognisable sights around Cork. Here it is viewed from the end of Academy Street by Patrick’s Street.
An old fence follows the road off into the distance at Wine Strand in the Dingle Peninsular, Co. Kerry.
Lines, lines everywhere, I love lines!
The tough grass by a beach in Kerry grows thick on this hill, bounded by a wire fence to keep curious people like myself at bay!
This is an experiment for me. I thought the b/w treatment would work well as the image is full of texture, lines and shadow. What do you think? Another similar one to follow tomorrow.
One of the few photography shops left in Cork City center, Denis MacSweeney’s shop in Merchant’s Quay is a simple photo development outfit. O’Leary’s Camera World and MacSweeney’s on Oliver Plunkett St. will sell you cameras and all sorts of other photography bits. Unfortunately both shops were out of 77mm filters the last few times I called in.
Cork Film Festival starts on the 14th of October this year and will run until the 21st.
They’ve obviously spent quite a bit on advertising as these banners are visible all the way up Patrick Street.

This man has been selling the Evening Echo on Cork’s Patrick’s Street for years. Here’s a photo of him back in August 2005!
