His and hers bikes locked up against a pole in Daunt Square, Cork last February. Looking at this with fresh eyes, I was lucky to catch the people behind the bikes without at least one of them standing behind the pole!
I love the expressions of the two girls closest to the bikes. I wonder if they’re sisters?
I have to get out and take more street shots soon. I can’t remember the last time I “shot from the hip” and Cork City needs recording!

Image made on Paul Street, next door to Bully’s Restaurant in Cork.
This is for all the fans of Marvel and DC Comics publications! Super heroes do exist. They live in Cork, and hand out leaflets on Patrick’s Street in front of Dunnes Stores!
A close up of the MAAS logo on one of the street lights on Oliver Plunkett Street.
Pictured several months ago in February, pedestrians were blocked off from the construction work by high fences but not high enough to stop someone sticking a camera over the top.
This is one of the construction vehicles. Looks like a mix of a forklift and a crane doesn’t it?
It is wonderful to see a child smile and laugh and this little fella certainly was cheerful! Three buggies in one shot, tell me there isn’t an explosion in births in Ireland!
This was shot on Patrick’s Street, right in front of Boots. There’s someone eating in Abrakebabra in the background!
I found out that my Thieving Duck was used by the News of the World last Sunday without permission. Thanks Ricky for leaving that comment. I’ve emailed their newsdesk so hopefully I’ll hear back from them soon.
I made this image of the guy in the hat on Patrick’s Street last February and I knew I had a great street shot. I have no idea what those people in the car are doing but they left shortly after.
Link love: Donal has a great portrait of some of the kids from his trip to Lesotho.
Walking through a building site can be a hazardous task, especially when it’s one of the main streets of a city. Thankfully there are signs to lead the way through the maze of construction equipment, pot holes, broken paving and pipes. And then you get to the construction site.
Image made in February this year on the Grand Parade, Cork. Things have improved since.
I’ve noticed more and more people with cameras at major public events. St. Patrick’s Day is no exception and I made this shot as we walked toward St. Patrick’s Street in Cork, unfortunately too late for the parade, but we had enjoyed a good meal so I wasn’t too bothered!
How many photographers can you see in this image? I count seven, maybe eight.
I can’t remember how I got this effect. Normally I’ll make a .xcf copy of the image but it’s not there this time. Ooops.
