A young lady checked her bag just outside Paul Street Shopping Centre in Cork. Wide angle lens makes for weird contortions but I like it!
His and hers bikes locked up against a pole in Daunt Square, Cork last February. Looking at this with fresh eyes, I was lucky to catch the people behind the bikes without at least one of them standing behind the pole!
I love the expressions of the two girls closest to the bikes. I wonder if they’re sisters?
I have to get out and take more street shots soon. I can’t remember the last time I “shot from the hip” and Cork City needs recording!

Image made on Paul Street, next door to Bully’s Restaurant in Cork.

Pictured several months ago in February, pedestrians were blocked off from the construction work by high fences but not high enough to stop someone sticking a camera over the top.
This is one of the construction vehicles. Looks like a mix of a forklift and a crane doesn’t it?
It is wonderful to see a child smile and laugh and this little fella certainly was cheerful! Three buggies in one shot, tell me there isn’t an explosion in births in Ireland!
This was shot on Patrick’s Street, right in front of Boots. There’s someone eating in Abrakebabra in the background!
I found out that my Thieving Duck was used by the News of the World last Sunday without permission. Thanks Ricky for leaving that comment. I’ve emailed their newsdesk so hopefully I’ll hear back from them soon.
Walking through a building site can be a hazardous task, especially when it’s one of the main streets of a city. Thankfully there are signs to lead the way through the maze of construction equipment, pot holes, broken paving and pipes. And then you get to the construction site.
Image made in February this year on the Grand Parade, Cork. Things have improved since.
I’ve noticed more and more people with cameras at major public events. St. Patrick’s Day is no exception and I made this shot as we walked toward St. Patrick’s Street in Cork, unfortunately too late for the parade, but we had enjoyed a good meal so I wasn’t too bothered!
How many photographers can you see in this image? I count seven, maybe eight.
I can’t remember how I got this effect. Normally I’ll make a .xcf copy of the image but it’s not there this time. Ooops.
This is the Grand Parade in Cork, from across the River Lee on Sullivan’s Quay. It was the graffiti on the river wall, “Tek”, that prompted me to shoot this image and I like how it came out.
It does lose something in this resized version because of the distant detail but it’s going to be a while before everyone has 20″ monitors and even longer before I put full size images on display for public consumption.
