Ireland

Call me Spike

Call me Spike Frost covered weeds still manage to grow and thrive in the cold. I saw this wonderful speckled white plant growing from a ditch yesterday morning and it looked very ominous. When I converted it to black and white I saw myself looking at something abstract, possibly evil, something that could be microscopic […]

The frosty daffodil

The frosty daffodil This morning was a frosty one. My breath made clouds in the air and a light breeze carried away the warmth in the shadows. Thankfully there was a lovely sunrise that more than made up for the cold. Down at the end of our park there’s a small green area, and this […]

Looks like rain in Ballycotton

Looks like rain in Ballycotton Threatening clouds over Ballycotton Harbour in Co. Cork. This was taken way back in 2006 on a nice September afternoon. Lots done to this image, including overlay layers, and layer masks and other fun.

Thumbs up for Cork!

Thumbs up for Cork! You may remember this gentleman from a photo I posted around a year ago (it’s pure coincidence I’m posting this today! Really!) This was shot in Midleton, Co. Cork during the Food and Drink Festival in 2006. Nice guy who came over for a chat afterwards.

Spectators on the beach

Spectators on the beach The hang gliding crowd attracted a bit of a crowd on Inch Beach in 2006. Well, it was late September and there wasn’t that many people on the beach in the first place, so 2 people isn’t so bad, eh? Hunger got the best of us and we watched as a […]

Ballycotton Fishing Boats

Ballycotton Fishing Boats Fishing boats crowd the harbour in Ballycotton on a warm August afternoon. This was taken in 2006, when I think I shot the rest of my Ballycotton images. I love the imposing clouds and the leading lines of the bows.

Lonesome Donkey

Lonesome Donkey A donkey, alone in his field. There’s a horse in the background but he’s being fed. The donkey doesn’t get anything. Poor thing. Spotted on the road around Slea Head at the end of the Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry. That’s the last of the donkey pictures. For now.

The sandy beach at Couminole

The sandy beach at Couminole I photographed the beach at Couminole on the Dingle Peninsula back in 2006 when there was a beach there. There was no sand to be seen during repeated visits there in September 2007. I had actually quite forgotten I had taken this so it was nice to see the lovely […]

Donkey eyes staring at me

Donkey eyes staring at me The donkey knows everything. He stands in his field every day contemplating life. This is the same donkey I posted before in Baile na nGall, Co. Kerry. We passed that way last September and I didn’t see him so if you see a wandering donkey, tell him I said hi!

That after sun glow

The after sun glow The sun had just set over this stretch of the water in Cork Harbour near Monkstown and the sky had turned a beautiful orange and purple and red and golden. Much to the annoyance of my dog Oscar, I stopped and spent a good 10 minutes shooting this scene and basked […]

Unnamed Beauty

Unnamed Beauty This is one of the beautiful girls who modeled for Mallow Camera Club in September 2006. I can’t remember her name, and at the time I was totally unhappy with the image, but maybe it’s because I haven’t looked at it in a long time, I really like it now. I shot several […]

The Fields of County Cork

The Fields of County Cork On the way into Cork Airport I snapped this shot of the beautiful green fields of Co. Cork. After the desert landscape of Arizona it was a relief to see familiar countryside again.

The Happy Shih Tzu

The Happy Shih Tzu Our Shih Tzu, Oscar, received a long overdue grooming today. Here he is on the 10th of December 2007. Can you imagine how much more hair grew since then? Yes, this photo is very similar to this beach photo. They were taken moments apart. I’m running low on prepared images, it’s […]

Horgans of Blarney

Horgans of Blarney The Irish flag flies outside Horgans of Blarney, a souvenir shop in the village. Despite the fact that it’s between the butcher’s and a pub, I’ve never been in there. I doubt most locals have been. Still, nice to see the flags waving!
