A Cup

A Cup among the the rocks

The smooth uniform texture of a cup contrasted with the rough and weathered stones of a wall on Cape Clear Island. Somewhere near where I took the previous shot I saw this cup at the side of the road and was struck by the oddness of it’s placement. Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal […]

Church is this direction. A sign points towards the Catholic church on Cape Clear Island, off the coast of Co Cork, Ireland. After taking photos with the “Retro Camera” app on my phone in square format I decided I’d try the same with my DSLR photos. I copied my “copyright frame” script (for the GIMP) […]

Waves Crash

Waves crash into the sea wall at Garrettstown Beach, Co Cork a few weeks ago. Beautiful day for a trip down there and the wind blew the sea into violent waves pounding the man made obstructions on shore. Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 200mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/400s

The Truman House

The Truman House

The Truman Show was filmed in the town of Seaside in Florida way back in 1998. Feeling old now? This is the house where they filmed interior shots of Truman’s home. You’ll recognise scenes from the film if you visit the town, but trees and bushes are a bit more overgrown now. Anyway, Automattic went […]

St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Blarney

I took part in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade here in Blarney today along with my son and wife. We walked with the Community Preschool group and I am utterly amazed at the stamina of young kids! Little 3 and 4 year olds walked around Blarney and still had energy left to play with bubbles […]

Football on the beach

3 boys playing with a football on Garretstown Beach. The tide was coming in and I watched them kick the ball out into the water. The day was freezing though with a strong offshore wind. Brrrr. Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 144mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

View on Camden Quay

View on Camden Quay

Camden Quay in Cork City with the north side of the City behind it. St. Anne’s (or Shandon Bells) and the Catholic North Cathedral in the background. Loved the light when I saw this scene. The setting sun cast shadows on the buildings and reflected off the church steeples. Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 40D […]

Boats in Drake’s Pool

There are always boats moored in the section of the Owenabue River called “Drake’s Pool”. This was a shot I took last weekend while out walking with my family there. Quite frosty but many people out walking the light from the setting sun was amazing. Yes, this location is associated with Sir Francis Drake: The […]

Scrap Saturday

I loved this show while it was broadcast and I even have the multi-CD compilation that came out a couple of years ago too. Technology is ever changing. I don’t think I’ve recorded anything off the radio in years and the last time I did, I used the station’s Internet broadcast piped into mencoder to […]
