A child playing in the sand

A child playing in the sand This little girl was playing in the sand on the beach as we walked past. Plenty of toys about, but I don’t think she had built a sand castle yet. It’s lovely to see children playing in the sand. It’s an age of innocence and (sometimes) simple joy that […]

Faces of the TechCrunch Party 2007

Faces of the TechCrunch Party 2007 TechCrunch held their second annual party on Friday night and I was there with a few of the guys from Automattic. It was my first time being at a gathering like this, but we had a good time and I got a couple of shots off. In the collage […]

Cut the chocolate birthday cake

Happy birthday Alex! Yum! Yum! Alex cuts the delicious chocolate birthday cake in Herbivore, San Francisco! That crazy Matt Mullenweg fella can’t resist helping him with the cake. Come to think of it, did anyone not eat the cake? It was so nice!

Why are you photographing that?

Why are you photographing that? It’s a bike on the ground, why are you photographing it? That’s what a group of girls asked me as I crouched down next to this bike. I got the shot though!

Bus stop on Mardyke Parade

Bus stop on Mardyke Parade The bus stop on the Mardyke Parade outside the old Erinville Hospital is on a bus lane, just outside a school. Every single school morning the bus lane is jammed with cars dropping children off.

The Yellow Mini

The Yellow Mini A yellow BMW Mini parked on the Washington Street a while back. It sure has room in that parking space doesn’t it?

Finbarr House, Cork

Finbarr House, Cork Finbarr House is situated right next to University College Cork (UCC) on the Western Road. What’s strange is that it is a rundown building in the perfect location for renting to students: right in front of the University. Who knew there was an Irish property owner who didn’t want to make a […]

California Sunset

California Sunset On the way to the Automattic beach houses last night we drove along the famous road that featured in Basic Instinct. I opened the window on Toni’s car and took a few photos of the sunset. I hoped for it to happen, but I was very lucky that the sun was blocked out […]

Cute little dog

Cute little dog A King Charles Spaniel with his owner in Paul Street, Cork a few months ago. I don’t like seeing dogs in the city because it’s so stressful for them but it was really quiet. Little fella looks worried though doesn’t he?

Live from WordCamp 2007

Shot handheld at ISO 800 […]

The dog and his bone

The dog and his bone Oscar, our pet Shih Tzu, pictured with a bone shaped biscuit treat. Actually he doesn’t like them much. He prefers Markies, but they’re bought now so he’ll finish them!

A rainy day on the street

A rainy day on the street It’s raining in Cork, possibly. The weather has been all upside down this summer. By the time you see this on my photoblog, I’ll be on my way to San Francisco. Check my Flickr stream for tomorrow’s pic I couldn’t run my future posting script because Flickr changed their […]

Blitz in Cork

Blitz in Cork A modified car sits parked in front of the Carroll’s Quay car park in Cork. The distinctive logo on the wing reminds me of the Transformers. Maybe the driver is a fan?
