Black and White Metal

The metal of a school desk leg in my Dad’s garden. On a much nicer day than today, awful outside right now! Cold wind, wet. Glad I’m inside now!

One Eye Oscar!

Shih Tzu dogs need a lot of grooming and Oscar is no exception. This is him in the snow on Christmas Day last year. Good thing he had all that fur as it was freezing!

Hold Her Steady

A ship tied up at the quay in Kinsale, Co. Cork last year. The vessel was mostly deserted but we saw revellers boarding it regularly, walking around the deck and then off again!

Rizla

The wrapper of a Rizla rolling papers packet lies on the ground behind a pub in an East Cork town I can’t remember the name of right now.

Romanes Eunt Domus


Romans go home! No! It’s “Romani ite Domum”!

Ah, the Life of Brian. What a film. Great fun that was.

At a military show in Cork City Gaol last year we saw a display of Roman Legions fighting and a small history lesson in the life and times back then. It was a fascinating display and I must dig up some more of the photos I shot that day!

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.

Cape Clear Road

A view of the main road on Cape Clear Island, a small island off the coast of west Cork. I’ve walked this road many times but never noticed that you can see the Baltimore Beacon from here until I took this photo…
