London Eye

The London Eye (or Millenium Wheel as it is also called) is clearly visible in this shot of London City Center taken last weekend as my plane banked on approach to Heathrow Airport.

We arrived around 7am when it was still dark. Thankfully I had my camera in a small bag at hand because I had missed some great shots of Tuscon, Arizona because my camera had been tucked away in the overhead bins.

Sorry for the large file size. It’s a noisy image, and Jpeg compression isn’t that great with random noise.

Horgans of Blarney

The Irish flag flies outside Horgans of Blarney, a souvenir shop in the village.

Despite the fact that it’s between the butcher’s and a pub, I’ve never been in there. I doubt most locals have been.

Still, nice to see the flags waving!

Soft golden sunset

Sunset over Garrettstown Beach.

PS. spammers are using the inphotos.org domain to send spam again which is why this site was down for most of the day. You should see the incoming traffic graph because of all the bounced messages. I have now shut down Postfix, and redirecting email to through my domain registrar, Joker.com who hopefully can handle the load better. Email to donncha@inphotos.org may not reach me for several hours however.

Carroll’s Quay Apartments

This is the apartment block that sprang up opposite the car park, from which I took this photo.

The building itself is a dull grey monstrosity. Large windows look out on the street, hardly offering any privacy for residents. Tiny balconies sit outside some of the windows.

Shih Tzu on a sunset beach

Our Shih Tzu Oscar on Garrettstown Beach again. We forgot to bring a ball with us but Oscar went running after anything I threw.

He never did catch the object. I guess there’s nothing quite like a tennis ball eh?

I love the evening sun on him in this picture!

Emerald House B&B

At the corner of the main green in Blarney sits Emerald House B&B. I’ve never stayed there but they have a great location, right next to Blarney Castle.
