Doorway into the gloom

Doorway into the gloom Taken almost a year ago, this doorway leads into an old building on the grounds of a hospital in Cork. A cherry blossom can be seen blooming outside contrasting with the gloom and ruin of the interior. While on the hospital theme, I wrote up our experiences at the new Cork […]

Looking out from Homely House

Check out the previous link for a picture of Brian Lapen and EagleSpirit who ran the cafe. Unfortunately for Dingle they’re now in Hawaii, and the building was destined for […]

Alcatraz Flowers

Alcatraz Flowers The entrance to Alcatraz Prison is up a series of steps near these flowers. I love how they catch the light while the background is in the shade of the prison. After yesterday’s flood of posts it’s nice to get back to the one-a-day habit although I wonder why Technorati hasn’t picked up […]

Wet Wellow Web

Wet Wellow Web Early in the morning dew coats everything and water droplets on spider webs glisten in the rising sun. I’m not sure where this was taken, it was probably somewhere in Blarney but it was taken with my Panasonic FZ5 last September and I only copied it off a few days ago!

The lone daisy

Spring Blooms

Spring Blooms I can never remember the names of flowers and trees and today is no exception. I captured this image almost a month ago after Jacinta spotted this beautiful display of nature. We are to be married today, it’s all hectic around here but our prayers have been answered and the rain is clearing […]
