Group shot of almost everyone who attended the wedding of Barry Owens and Ann Murphy on Saturday in Kinsale, Co. Cork. The official photographer very kindly didn’t mind when I took a few shots alongside her.
I originally decided this was going to be black and white but after consultation with my creative half (aka my wife Jacinta) I decided to post it in colour. I desaturated the image slightly and brought up the red, blue and cyan channels a bit.
If you look carefully you’ll see Barry’s brother-in-law Matt near the top of the church! Yes, that’s the sad old tosser!
Mannix and Culhanne on Washington St, Cork.
Children smile and laugh as the fairground ride goes around and around! Linda and myself spent a good few minutes shooting this ride.
I combined a long exposure and flash to capture the action and hoped to get a glimpse of a child’s smile. I think I was lucky to get this one!
The shadow cast by a young man waiting to cross the street forms the main subject of this unusual image. Sort of messes with your head doesn’t it?
Jimmy and Paul served the bbq to hungry parents, kids and everyone else at the charity bbq in the Waterloo Inn today. They spent over an hour dealing with flames and hot food at the end of a blisteringly hot day and really deserved the round of applause afterwards.
Well done guys, and thanks to everyone who helped out! It was a great day!
I met Alkos and Ewa last night for a drink or two in the Old Oak. Alkos has his own photoblog, PAD where he posts some great street shots so I was looking forward to meeting him.
We had a few drinks and chatted for a few hours before we had to go our separate ways. He’s a dedicated film photographer but he has tried digital but it wasn’t to his liking. I’m amazed he finds time to post something new every day. It’s tough enough when you only have to copy images from a Flash card, but when you add development and scanning.. Phew. There’s his camera on the table. It’s a Contax G1, loaded with a b/w film. Picture of that coming tomorrow!
If you haven’t done so yet, check out PAD today.
I have no idea what they were looking at because there wasn’t anything flying overhead. Better than waiting for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade to start I suppose!
Taken on Paddy’s Day this year on Patrick’s Street, or Panna as it’s locally known.
Clouds in the sky reflect off the water of the pond in Fitzgerald’s Park in Cork.
Imagine the scene. Out on a pier, I’m lying on the wooden beams over the low tide surf on the rocks below and I’m calling to my dog. Thankfully Oscar obliged and I made this photo as he walked towards me with his tongue half-hanging out of his mouth. There’s Jacinta in the background, she’s almost 9 months pregnant in this photo, but you probably can’t see the bump in this small image!
