The Yellow Helmet

The Yellow Helmet A father picks up the yellow helmet dropped by his son in front of the Body Shop on Patrick’s Street, Cork last Saturday. I was sitting on one of the marble blocks that pass as street furniture on our main thoroughfare. I had my camera ready to shoot when I saw them […]

Denis Murphy, Castle Street

Denis Murphy, Castle Street There’s something fascinating for me about old buildings. Perhaps it’s the history they have seen and the memories they hold. Some of the old buildings on Castle Street, Cork are really interesting. I noticed this small building nestled in between it’s larger brethern and when I saw some people walking by […]

Staring at me

Staring at me Am I feeling conspicuous or what? I tried shooting from the hip yesterday with the strap of my camera over my shoulder and my camera in a horizontal position instead of being wrapped around my hand in a vertical orientation. It proved useful, but I found that: More of my shots were […]

The Brown Line to Kimball

The Thieving Duck

A duck robs a poor innocent woman as she’s distracted by the cute ducklings. Moments later they all rush off with their ill-gotten gains! What you don’t see is the camera crew, make-up and lighting people and a small crowd watching from behind them. This was for some advert and of course the woman in […]

Cobh Train Station

Cobh Train Station Cobh Train Station, taken just before closing many months ago. It’s a long exposure shot of the interior of a fine building on the quay-side. “The Queenstown Story”, a museum in the background of this shot is worth a visit and tells the story of the port of Cobh as the last […]

Children, wait in line

Children, wait in line Children wait for their teachers in down town Chicago last year. They were standing on the pavement (oh ok, side walk) near the Chicago Board of Trade. I presume on a school outing, hope they enjoyed themselves! I’ve been holding on to this photo for months now and since I don’t […]

Who’s for supper?

Who’s for supper? A mural on a wall in Dublin a few weeks ago. We passed this while walking back to our hotel. I get the feeling there’s a story behind this picture. Does anyone know it?

Six Apart Mark

Six Apart Mark Niall Kennedy drove myself and Mark Jaquith around on a small sight seeing tour of the local attractions in San Francisco after WordCamp last Saturday. A visit to the offices of Six Apart proved to be too good a thing to pass up so we posed for a few photos on their […]

Honest Smoothies

Honest Smoothies We bought smoothies in Honest, a small shop in Dublin. They were having problems with their machines and gave us one of the smoothies free but they didn’t taste all that great unfortunately.

We Went Bowling

We Went Bowling We went bowling today, and I took a few shots. So far nobody has attempted to kill me for shooting so many photos! An open air meeting of Automattic yesterday went superbly, although we’re all a little burned. Sitting in the afternoon sun in a park by the Golden Gate was worth […]

Andy in the car

Andy in the car Andy Skelton pictured in the back of Matt’s car here in San Francisco! This is an experiment in iPhoto because I can’t ssh home! Andy took a photo of me in the airport as we waited for Podz. I was wilting and falling asleep on my feet. Note to everyone – […]
