I guess the number of high rise cranes we’ll see over our urban environment will decrease as the building industry collapses. Meanwhile there are plenty around. Here’s three I shot in the middle of Cork City from Emmett Place. At night they’re lit up which is when I shot short circuit.
Mallow Camera Club had the Photographer of the Year competition last night. I came 4th in the novice section, missing out on 3rd place by 1 point. So close!
PS. The photomeet in Dublin last weekend went very well by all accounts. There was much twittering yesterday from all concerned. You can check out photos here: toejam pool, iced-coffee, Darren Greene, Gingerpixel, Caitriona, Alexia, McAWilliams, Will Knott, 73man and finally Courtney.

Behind the bar in Luigi Malone’s Restaurant in Cork are 2 large clock faces. The bar goes around in a U shape and the other face is directly behind this one.
They’re very striking, and the first thing anyone notices when they come in the front door. This is the one facing the dining area. In the dark it practically jumps out at you!
The steeple of St. Anne’s Church, or “Shandon Bells” as viewed from near the Opera House in Cork. Traffic is as usual stuck at the lights close by ..
Dunnes Stores on Patrick Street, Cork is no more. This is the back of the front of that building which has featured a number of times on my blog.
The whole block is now gone!
Children smile and laugh as the fairground ride goes around and around! Linda and myself spent a good few minutes shooting this ride.
I combined a long exposure and flash to capture the action and hoped to get a glimpse of a child’s smile. I think I was lucky to get this one!
Thomas, a young boy in his buggy on Patrick’s Day this year. He’s well wrapped up against the cold.
I have no idea who he is, so hopefully his name is Thomas, and that’s not some famous brand I’m not aware of.
A young couple hug and kiss in front of the Crawford College of Art in Cork. This was shot on St. Patrick’s Day, and the crowd behind are waiting for a face painter!
As well as an outdoor market, the good people of Cork were entertained by musicians in Emmett Place on Patrick’s Day.
