Barry's Balloons

Barry’s Balloons

Last Sunday a “fun day” was held in the square in Blarney. I had completely forgotten about it until we got down there and there was a huge crowd there with food stalls, a bouncy castle and this inflatable slide and various races for all the kids. Shame about the weather though. Barry’s Balloons obviously […]

Relax in the Park

Relax in the Park

A man relaxes in Bishop Lucey Park while all around him people enjoy the festival that day. Taken during the photowalk last month. Amazing what cropping does to an image. The original was so busy and I struggled to find the image I wanted out of it but I like this. Aperture ƒ/2.2 Camera Canon […]

The Roughty Fruit King

A long time fixture of the English Market in Cork is this fruit stall run by M F Murphy.

Innards of the Building

Innards of the Building

The old Dunnes Stores building on Patrick’s Street in Cork is keeping it’s old style and attractive front facade. Phew. I still think it’s odd how a building site juts out behind it though. PS. The nominations form for the Irish Blog Awards is now open. If you feel it deserves it, I’d be very […]

Smiles all around

The smiling attractive face of a model appeared on the hoarding surrounding the building site that is Dunnes Stores in Cork several months ago. It hasn’t had much of an effect on all however. Aperture ƒ/5 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/60s

Idle Machinery

Cranes towering over Cork City sit idle as the sun sets on a late October day in 2008. I suspect this scene will become more rare as the recession bites. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/320s

pentax

Pentax

Camera straps say so much about you. Mine says “Canon”. What does your strap say? Nikon? Sony? My dad used to shoot with a Pentax SLR for years so I have fond memories of the brand. I’m curious about their DSLRs. Anyone have one? Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 21mm ISO 1600 […]

carol singers

Carol Singers

Carol singers on Patrick’s Street yesterday. It’s nice to see carollers again. It seems they haven’t been out much in previous years but this year I spotted 3 groups dotted around the city streets singing their hearts out. So, yesterday I said that Pat Phelan’s generosity giving away a phone, a 20″ LCD screen and […]
