Clouds gather and block out the sun over the Lough in Cork last year. The display was beautiful as light wispy clouds and dark brooding rain clouds skirted across the sky.
The sun made one final effort to shine, but the clouds won out and it started to rain moments later.
As a rule I don’t photograph the homeless very often but I don’t think the sleeping gentleman in this photo was homeless. Rather a heavy night on the town I suspect.
This was snapped while walking past Marks & Spencers on Patrick’s Street last year. I spotted the security people and had the camera ready without breaking stride.
I wonder what happened next?
A dad waits for his better half to come out of a clothes shop on Patrick’s Street.
Waves crash onto the beach at Garretstown last April.
Ryan has put his photos of the Irish Blog Awards online. Great shots!
This is part of another pillar near the one pictured yesterday but in much worse condition.
I love the textures and the way that rust practically flows down. It’s a shame I didn’t get everything in focus though.
I figured out why my posts started showing “This photo is currently unavailable”. On March 1st Flickr changed the way they name their images. Previously it was only a matter of changing _m.jpg to _o.jpg to get the original image, or swapping in “_s.jpg” to get a small thumbnail. Now the numbers in the filename change as well.
It’s a simple but tedious task to change the image before I publish a post but the thumbnails you see at the top of this page are generated by a small script which now needs to be rewritten and made a lot smarter.
Shot down in Garretstown Beach last year. Connectivity continues to be a problem so this will be short.
The crowds watch a festival in Union Square, San Francisco. I’m not sure who Chris is but I’m guessing he’s a rugby player?
Hmm, Flickr are still mangling the image URL. I hope they fix it soon.
Fianna Fail, “The Republican Party”, had an office on the Grand Parade in Cork for years. Last time I looked the building was derelict. Anyone want to compare the state of their Cork office to their policies or chances in the next election?
Fianna Fail have been in power almost continuously for as long as I remember and before that of course. Will you vote for them?
This is next door to no 48 pictured yesterday.
I like this: May Day in California. Great street shots.
