Dunnes Stores in Ruins

Dunnes Stores in Ruins

The skeleton of the Dunnes Stores building on Patrick’s Street lies in ruins as building work continued to refurbish it.

Taken in September 2007, Brian took a shot of the building a few days ago in much better state!

Places are still available for the Cork City Photowalk on July 18th! Please leave comments on yesterday’s photowalk post if you have any questions!

Nature invades our spaces

nature invades

Nature starts to reclaim the works of man as soon as he turns his back. It’s inevitable as this photo of the steps up to a house in Sunday’s Well shows.

My own garden is the picture of neat and tidy lawn without a single blade of grass out of place. I wish!

One Bridge to Mizen Head

Bridge to Mizen Head

The bridge to Mizen Head Lighthouse is a landmark itself, photographed many times over the years. I have a few more shots of this bridge to share with you in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

We saw Honeymoon Cabaret perform their unique brand of street theatre in Douglas this afternoon and very enjoyable it was too! Hopefully I’ll post a photo or two tomorrow. I went a bit mad with the camera and it’s hard to choose just one image!

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 to the shell where I found it.

Slate in Black and White

Slate in Black and White

The roof of a house on Sunday’s Well from behind the house. The building in the background is the new one being built on the Western Road, where the greyhound track used to be. Taken shortly after the wedding car shot a few days ago.

I just love the texture of the slate roof. When I took it I had this black and white image in mind and thankfully it came out the way I wanted!
