kilkee beach

Kilkee Beach

Kilkee Beach in County Clare is a beautiful stretch of sand going on forever and ever. Well, seems like it, it’s a massively long beach and on the day we accidentally discovered it the sun was beating down on us. Hooray! I have no idea what RMA stands for. That little rock was sitting next […]

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 […]

Classic cars all parked up at Charles Fort near Kinsale, Co Cork and I had a ball shooting them. This beautiful blue Mustang was the first to go. The iconic name and good looks attracted quite a few onlookers. Aperture ƒ/7.1 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 21mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/100s
