Cork rooftops on and on

Cork rooftops on and on

The view from the Grand Parade Car Park is a wonderful one in every direction. Rooftops and the architectural sites of the city can all be seen from there. In this view you can only see the rooftops of the city’s shops and old buildings but in the middle distance is the construction work on […]

Dunnes Stores, Patrick Street

Dunnes Stores on Patrick Street Cork opened again last Thursday. This is the store pictured at the end of August when a timer counted down the days to opening. ‘Course, every time I think of this store, I think of the super hero who posed outside it hawking leaflets a few years ago!

Chemtrails and Clouds and Evening Sky

Chemtrails and Clouds and Evening Sky

I’ve already covered the chemtrails conspiracy but they’re such a frequent and visible part of the sky that I have to shoot them sometimes. This was taken in Blarney, the trail is from a high flying plane going west to the USA. Arrangements for the photowalk on the 26th are surging ahead. Pat got in […]

Springer at Fountainstown

Springer at Fountainstown

I always have a soft spot for Springer Spaniels. The beaches at Myrtleville and Fountainstown seem to be a favourite haunt of them if our experiences are anything to go by. Here’s a Springer that played with my son Adam at the beach in Fountainstown. They had a great time together! Almost recovered. Stomach is […]

Feet in Sand

Feeling like crap today because of a bug that’s going around. Worst of it was last night but I can feel it getting worse again. Argh! Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 28mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

Barry's Balloons

Barry’s Balloons

Last Sunday a “fun day” was held in the square in Blarney. I had completely forgotten about it until we got down there and there was a huge crowd there with food stalls, a bouncy castle and this inflatable slide and various races for all the kids. Shame about the weather though. Barry’s Balloons obviously […]

Mother Cat

Mother Cat

This is Mother Cat. Matriarch of the local cats. Her litter of kittens are growing up and make a daily appearance in our garden. They’re all a little wild though. The kitten’s dad, Patches, was the polar opposite. He was friendly to us humans and loved to be rubbed and scratched behind the ear. He […]

Arachnophobia

Arachnophobia, the fear of spiders is a common one. Who really likes the creepy crawlies that come into your house and lurk in the corner? Look at those big fangs, and the long hairy legs! This one was actually on my wall (I rotated the image 90 degrees) and just after I took the photo […]

Culhane

Culhan(e)

Mannix and Culhane on Washington Street occupies a low single storey building on the corner with North Main Street. Did they lose the top floors of their building a few years ago? I remember a girl was killed just up the road when falling masonry from a neighbouring building fell on her. I have a […]

Castle Street in Ruins

Castle Street in Ruins

A building on Castle Street in Cork City collapsed yesterday crushing a parked car but thankfully not hurting anyone. This is the scene earlier today where the building has been demolished and in the process of being cleared up. As I left, a truck reversed into the street, presumably to take rubble away. The crushed […]
