The post box outside a post office in Fermoy, Co. Cork.
Today is dull, there’s a glimpse of blue out, it’s cold, there’s a chilly wind blowing.
Blue sky and fluffy clouds in Kerry while on holiday. Great memories.
It’s cold out there and the trees are almost bare. Some leaves still hang on however!
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..
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 in a larger format.
Post processing: Auto-levels, gimp lomo and save. Resized version has been sharpened and I could have done more with the dodge and burn tool to bring out the detail in the flowers but this will have to do.
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!
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!
A crow atop a STOP sign on The Grand Parade, Cork.
Shot using a fairly high ISO but bicubic resizing smudges the noise away!
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. A few of us from Mallow Camera Club made it to the Cobh Ramblers game against Dundalk and had free reign to walk around the perimeter of the football pitch.
I was almost hit a few times by the ball, including one time near the goal when I was zooming in on the action, with the camera in burst mode. I spotted the ball heading my way in the frame and stepped to the side a lit second before the ball landed where I was standing. Phew. Got the pic too
More about the day’s shooting during the week!
