Cobh Flowers

Cobh Flowers Assorted flowers decorate the harbour area of Cobh. Yesterday, my wedding day, was without doubt “the best day of my life”!

Spring Blooms

Spring Blooms I can never remember the names of flowers and trees and today is no exception. I captured this image almost a month ago after Jacinta spotted this beautiful display of nature. We are to be married today, it’s all hectic around here but our prayers have been answered and the rain is clearing […]

Seaweed rope

Seaweed rope I like the dreamy diffused glow of this image. It was shot down in Inchadony Beach a few weeks back. Howto: First of all, I had to straighten the horizon because it was at a precarious angle. I used two layers, I saturated the colours slightly in the bottom layer to bring out […]

Water falls in Blarney

Water falls in Blarney A river runs near my home in Blarney and a small stream feeds it as it meanders through a nice wooded area on my doorstep. I froze the water in this image as it fell into the river while we were out for a walk there a few weeks back. It […]

Tithe Eireannacha

Tithe Eireannacha Nestled in between the city centre of Cork and Blackrock lies an old and historic part of Cork City. Albert Road and Hibernian Buildings are only two streets in this area and should be familiar to anyone on the south side of the city. Welcome everyone from tportal.hr and htnet.hr! Can someone translate […]

Your vehicle has been clamped

Your vehicle has been clamped This is the sign that drivers hate to see. Clampers are a relatively new phenomenon in Ireland but are reviled even more than traffic wardens now.

Ireland Today: construction

Ireland Today: construction Ireland today is defined by construction. A huge portion of the Irish economy is driven by the residential building trade. An acre of land can go for €50m and up in Dublin. Two rate hikes by the ECB hasn’t dampened Irish interest in owning their own property. This crane was pictured at […]

Blarney Horses

Blarney Horses Three horses appeared in a field close to Blarney village about a week ago. At first, a mare, her foal and another horse were there, but the mare is gone now and three young looking animals are in residence. I took this photo one morning a few days ago. One of the horses […]

The Craft Fair is now on!

The Craft Fair is now on! A craft fair was recently held in the Unitarian Church on Prince’s Street. I have been dying to get into the building and see what it’s like on the inside for ages so we jumped at the chance. We like visiting these fairs too so it was doubly good. […]

Metal Pattern

Metal Pattern The metal cover of a drain in the street attracted my attention particularly as it caught the low sun and sparkled in my eye.

Little Plane Flying High

Little Plane Flying High Just before I got in the car to drive home I looked up.

A boy on St. Patrick’s Street

A boy on St. Patrick’s Street Just outside Boots he stopped in front of me, what could I do but make this image? He was waiting for his parents to catch up but I liked the contrast between him and the busy world around him. He rejoined that world moments later. A moment in time.

Yellow Lines

Yellow Lines A different viewpoint on Drawbridge Street, Cork. Yes, I do get funny looks as I crouch or lie in the gutter taking photographs.
