School children

School children While walking back to the car after the Cobh Rambler’s game a few weeks ago I made this picture of a sign on the road. I find it strange that out of the 600-odd images I took that day, this is the first image I’ve uploaded..

Daffodils in the sky

Daffodils in the sky Lovely bright daffodils to brighten up your gloomy November Monday morning! This was taken way back on March 18th this year on the same day I shot these daffodils! The image has been sitting in my WIP folder for months but after my gimp lomo post I decided to post this […]

Internet Cafe

Internet Cafe The Internet Cafe is that way. Sign is on The South Mall in Cork. PS. GIMP 2.4.1 was released yesterday. It’s a bugfix release!

Dunnes Stores for Better Value

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 […]

The crow stops here

The crow stops here A crow atop a STOP sign on The Grand Parade, Cork. Shot using a fairly high ISO but bicubic resizing smudges the noise away!

Through the long grass

Through the long grass Hard wind worn grass grows by the beach at Wine Strand in Co. Kerry. I think this is perfect in black and white. The blue sky was amazing but the light and shadow of the grass stands out against the uniform background. I shot my first sports stuff in ages yesterday. […]

The Irish Tricolour

The Irish Tricolour The Irish Flag, or Tricolour hangs outside the Muskerry Arms Pub in Blarney. More here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Ireland The beautiful weather recently provided a perfect opportunity to shoot outside. Yay!

Cork Film Festival

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 […]

Sun peaking out in SF

Sun peaking out in SF The sun is hidden by a tall building in San Francisco while mother and daughter wait for the lights to change.

Paul Street by night

Paul Street by night In front of Tesco on Paul Street, Cork by night. This is a long exposure show I made by putting my camera on the ground and leaning the lens on my wallet. Judging by the lighting it was probably a small aperture too. Love that effect!

Grand Parade mooring post

Grand Parade mooring post Believe it or not this may have been a mooring post for boats in the 1700s. At the time the River Lee ran through the Grand Parade and boats were tied to this on the quayside. Now it’s a busy street. It is reputed that this post was a cannon used […]

Colourful houses

Colourful houses Colourful buildings on the Grand Parade look out onto the continuing construction on the street. Who knows when it’ll end?

San Francisco Streets

San Francisco Streets A cyclist races across across an almost empty junction in San Francisco. I just love the sign on top of the building. Totally out of place amid the beautiful architecture and detail of it’s resting place.

Bull’s Tavern

Bull’s Tavern The logo on his shirt, "Bull’s Tavern" caught my eye as we waited on the sidewalk for the lights to change. This is near Union Square in San Francisco. Check out the Macy’s sign! Shopping heaven for those so addicted.

Caroline Street ESB Station

Caroline Street ESB Station This used to be an electricity switching station for the trams that traveled around Cork city and suburbs many years ago. This building was the location for Stanley Super 800′s Gatecrashing video many month’s ago. I still have some super shots of the interior to post. I’ll eventually get around to […]
