Revelers who were obviously having a great time at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork!
Big and crazy hats were the order of the day for many visitors and spectators
Crowd Safety officials had their hands full with the large crowd at the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Cork. I think they’re worried.
A carousel in Emmet’s Place attracted parents and kids and did a roaring business after the short St. Patrick’s Day parade in Cork. Each time themachine came to a halt parents and children alike both rushed up to grab their places!
Dancing and music went on for several hours in An Spailpin Fanach on Wednesday night to raise funds for charity.
My brother Donal and his girlfriend Celine are off to Lesotho in April for 10 days with the ISPCC. You can read more about it on ispccinafrica.com.
An old and empty phone booth lies neglected. Notice the lock and bolt on the door? I get the feeling this booth hasn’t contained a phone in a long time..
This is the other side of the window pictured yesterday in the mystery hospital.
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?

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.
