Short Circuit

Electricity everywhere and so evident at night in street lighting. I took this shot after meeting Mark for coffee 2 weeks ago. It’s this building site right in the middle of Cork City. More conventional shots will follow over the next few days. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter […]

Exit

This way to the EXIT. This is a sign in Biosphere 2 in Arizona. Can you imagine how enticing it would be to get out of a building after spending a year inside there? Declan from O’Learys rang this morning. Good news. He got on to the boss at the Sigma repair company who told […]

The rebel flag in Ballycotton

The Cork County colours fly on the quay at Ballycotton Harbour in Co. Cork in 2006. I’ve been looking at this image for so long I’m almost certain I must have uploaded it but it’s been sitting in my output folder for all this time! Aperture ƒ/14 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO […]

How very phallic of you

How very phallic of you A desert plant growing near the ranch we stayed at in Arizona. I only thought of the title after seeing this image in b/w, but err, it suits doesn’t it?

Call of the evening

Call of the evening A bird atop the light outside my house calls into the glowing evening sky heralding the end of 2007. After walking Oscar I had to grab my camera and shoot the beautiful evening sky. The background was this colour, there’s no trickery here except a little vignetting and sharpening.

Trees on the Marina

Trees on the Marina The trees along the Marina in Blackrock, Cork are bare at the this time of year but the sun shone today as if it was the height of Summer. It was lovely, even with the biting wind. Shot from the grounds of Pairc Ui Chaoimh (no relation!) while out walking with […]

Swans on The Lough

Swans on The Lough Swans swim past on The Lough in Cork City. This was one of the first photos I took at the recent photowalk there. Despite the clear blue sky and lovely light it was quite cold with a biting wind!

Little Leprechaun

I can see the parade!

I can see the parade! Some people go to all lengths to watch the St. Patrick’s Day Parade as these kids show. Congrats to my friends John and Ann on the birth of their son Caelin yesterday. You’re lives are going to change *so much* but you’re going to have a great time with the […]

La le Phadraig ar Sraid Phadraig

La le Phadraig ar Sraid Phadraig Children look out of an upstairs window in Merchants Quay shopping centre. When I took this shot I didn’t even see them! I was concentrating on the kids in the foreground with their flags. I think they frame the street sign rather nicely and ties in with the name […]

St. Patrick’s Day Tricolour Girl

St. Patrick’s Day Tricolour Girl A young girl leans on a traffic light where she has a bird’s eye view of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork.

Church Flowers

Church Flowers Flowers outside The Lough Parish Church, “Church of the Immaculate Conception”. You can read more about the church and mass times at the The Lough Parish page on the Diocese website.

The pigeon flies away!

The pigeon flies away! Besides the beautiful swans, there’s the usual gathering of pigeons waddling along on the path picking up bread crumbs. Too tempting. I had to chase after them and encourage them to fly a little. Some of them need the exercise!

Fog rolls over the hill

Fog rolls over the hill I count my blessings that we had sunlight this day at the Conor Pass. If we had arrived 10 minutes later all I would have seen was a white wall of fog. Buy This Image
