St. Patrick’s Day Tricolour Girl A young girl leans on a traffic light where she has a bird’s eye view of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork.
A flavour of the St Patrick’s Day festivities and people who attended the Parade in Cork yesterday. Special Olympics Team Some of the Special Olympics Team took part in the parade and as I said yesterday, it was strange to see only them on the street with nobody else about. Everyone cheered them on however […]
St. Patrick’s Day is for the kids A young girls waves her Irish flag in the air after spotting part of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork approaching. I shot several decent shots but it’s late and I’m tired. I was quite disappointed with the parade and left after half an hour. Like previous […]
Thumbs up for Cork! You may remember this gentleman from a photo I posted around a year ago (it’s pure coincidence I’m posting this today! Really!) This was shot in Midleton, Co. Cork during the Food and Drink Festival in 2006. Nice guy who came over for a chat afterwards.
Christmas decorations on high Christmas decorations on Paul Street, Cork a few days before Christmas Day last year. Hand held, and I hoped to get a “normal” straight shot but it’s hard to crouch down while wearing a jacket and pushing a buggy so it’s lopsided. I prefer it that way! Conversion to b/w I […]
January Sales The Christmas rush is over. Sales have been bad for retailers as people suddenly realised, “Oh!

The Sun sets on 2007 The final day of the year 2007. It’s cloudy and misty and rain is in the air. Very mild for this time of year actually. 2007 was a mixed bag for many people. It was a year of extremes – joy and sadness in equal measures, but life changing for […]
Christmas Baubles Christmas Baubles hang in Porter’s newsagent, Cork. Christmas decoration is everywhere but reflective surfaces present an opportunity to take a self portrait. Yes, that’s me reflected! Hope you had a great Christmas Day. We went travelling and I must say it was the best Christmas Day in a long time. I think I […]
Sparkling Flowing Christmas Lights Blue glowing and sparkling Christmas lights flow down from the roof of Benetton on Oliver Plunkett St. in Cork. I loved the reflection in the car and had to take this shot. It was hand held and I’m quite sure I pumped up the ISO quite a bit to get a […]
School girls sing the carols A group of girls from a local school sang Christmas carols in Blackpool Shopping Centre earlier today. They were brilliant! I wasn’t much in the mood for listening but they lifted my spirits. They were full of life, happy, joyful and really seemed to be enjoying the experience. Unfortunately we […]
