Think Superwoman!

THINK!

Boy in his woolly hat

A small boy waits outside Brown Thomas with his dad while I presume his mother shops inside.

I had plenty of company while I waited!

The hand that holds the phone

Waiting outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street in Cork and texting. She’s waiting for someone.

Cassettes

I wonder if the teenager wearing this hoodie realised the irony of wearing a garment decorated with cassette images, a piece of technology he may not ever have used. The Wikipedia page has a lot more to say on the subject.

This was shot outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street, Cork while I wheeled Adam around in his buggy.

A girl’s bag

Two girls stop to talk on Patrick’s Street, Cork. That bag looks uncomfortable. What do women put in their bags?

Dunnes Stores for Better Value

The old Dunnes Stores on Patrick’s Street is now only a shadow of it’s former self. All that remains of the building is the front facade and a small portion of the side walls.
Construction work on the Paul Street development has levelled most of the back buildings in a square block, exposing the internals of other buildings to the elements.
I spotted photos hanging on the rear wall of a room left open to the elements after demolition. Surreal!

If any business person from Acadamy Street is reading this, can I go to the top of your building and shoot the construction site from on-high? Please!

Trust on the street

Have you ever thought about how you’re manipulated by the brands?

Trust Boots.

Cork Film Festival

Cork Film Festival starts on the 14th of October this year and will run until the 21st.

They’ve obviously spent quite a bit on advertising as these banners are visible all the way up Patrick Street.

Still, I’ve never been to a film during the festival. Others take time off work and sit in darkened theatres for the duration of the festival soaking up the celluloid culture.
