The long road

A road winds into the hills north of Bantry. Yesterday’s photo of the Bantry hills was taken just up the road from here!

I joined Red Bubble yesterday and sold a photo already, although I think it was Pete who bought it as I emailed him last night about it. Nice selection of presentation methods too. Cool.

The rolling hills of Bantry

This is one of my favourite shots from the weekend in Bantry.

Basically I drove up the back roads out of Bantry town, then came to another town and picked the smallest road out of that place before going up a tiny little boithirin with barely room for my car. Wonderful.

O’Keeffe Lounge and Bar

I happened upon the O’Keeffe Lounge and Bar while wandering around Bantry last Sunday morning. Given the name of the establishment I just had to take a shot didn’t I?

Note the “Welcome to the pint depot” quotation?

Congratulations to Gingerpixel who won Best Photoblog at last night’s Irish Blog Awards. Ryan so deserves a special mention for doing the photography on the night, yet again! And of course, a big thank you to Damien for getting the ball rolling and organising the whole thing.

Mountain Daffodil

A daffodil in the garden of a house in the hills north east of Bantry Bay. I drove up there last Saturday morning and stopped when I saw the open gate. Wandering in the driveway I took a few shots of the view and then noticed these daffodils growing.

I prefer the daffodils. The day was too gloomy and the view wasn’t that great.

Dedicated to the memory of the three young men who lost their lives today in nearby Dunboy Castle.

Toilet Trouble

The toilets in Connolly Hall, Cork. This is that ugly ass black building across the river from the City Hall. It looks so out of place where it is, although developers are quickly changing the face of the city to match ..

Fitzgerald’s Park Bench

A park bench in the lovely and picturesque Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork.

Something awful happened. I went away with my family on a great weekend break on Friday and in the rush and stress I forgot to post some photos for the weekend. I’m catching up!
