Square Deal

Square Deal

Square Deal Interiors where we bought several items of furniture recently. Absolutely huge showrooms and nice helpful staff. Prices seemed reasonable too, even if they did take a big chunk out of my credit card. Aperture ƒ/3.5 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/125s

Rain on the River

Rain on the River

Rain falls on a river in a town in County Clare while we were stuck in a traffic jam. I used to know what town this was taken in but now it’s a mystery. It did have a very distinctive walled off area right in the middle of the river though. Anyone recognise it? Aperture […]

A Yellow Rose

A Yellow Rose

A yellow rose in my father-in-law’s garden. Even in his mid eighties he’s very active and loves tending his garden. Aperture ƒ/1.8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 50mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/2500s

Keeping the Chicks Alive

Keeping the Chicks Alive

2 chicks are fed by a parent just outside the window of my home office here in Blarney. The chicks have been there all evening and I just looked out again and they’re still there. Unfortunately the neighbour’s cat, Patches, saw them too and is keeping a vigil close by. We saw the parent bird […]

Rocky Bay

Rocky Bay

Rocky Bay in County Cork is a beautiful little sandy beach, despite the name. Aperture ƒ/7.1 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

The Worldwide Photowalkers

The Worldwide Photowalkers

41 had signed up but some couldn’t make it unfortunately. In the end, a more manageable 23 turned up. Here’s most of us as pictured afterwards in The Old Oak bar where we went for drinks and sandwiches. I had a great time today, I think everyone else did too by their reactions. The day […]

Big Wheel in the Showgrounds

Big Wheel in the Showgrounds

The big wheel, as seen from The Atlantic Pond outside Pairc Ui Chaoimh in Cork. Sort of fitting that I post a photo of a fairground ride on the day that Michael Jackson is laid to rest. BTW – there are still places on the Cork photowalk on the 18th. It’s less than 2 weeks […]

Autumn Trees

Autumn Trees

Beautiful golden leaves adorn the trees in Burnham Beeches near London. Last year I posted a photo of the same trees in Burnham Beeches and this version has been sitting in my TODO folder ever since, waiting for me to work on it. Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 400 Shutter […]

Pedestrian Crossing

Pedestrian Crossing

The pedestrian crossing outside Eason (I always say “Eason’s”, but it really is “Eason”. Just like Porter’s is “Porter”. These newsagents are a picky bunch!) where young and old traverse the street in relative safety. Yes, it’s the current header image on this blog. If you’re reading this in the future when I may have […]

Innards of the Building

Innards of the Building

The old Dunnes Stores building on Patrick’s Street in Cork is keeping it’s old style and attractive front facade. Phew. I still think it’s odd how a building site juts out behind it though. PS. The nominations form for the Irish Blog Awards is now open. If you feel it deserves it, I’d be very […]

smiles-all-around

Smiles all around

The smiling attractive face of a model appeared on the hoarding surrounding the building site that is Dunnes Stores in Cork several months ago. It hasn’t had much of an effect on all however. Aperture ƒ/5 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/60s

Dunnes Stores in the centre of Cork City is being rebuilt as part of a major development. This is the first in a series of photos I’ll publish over the next few days. This was taken very close to this photo shot about 10 months before! Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm […]
