Digging up Daunt Square

Digging up Daunt Square

Flash back to 2005 if you will. Ireland is in the grip of the Celtic Tiger boom. Cork is undergoing a transformation. The city’s streets were dug up and remolded with apparently improved drainage (didn’t help recently unfortunately) and the revamping of the city centre was in full swing. Here’s the construction on Daunt Square, […]

The doctor is out, and won’t ever be in again. Photo of the half-demolished buildings that became the ugly grey building across from Carroll’s Quay carpark on Leitrim Street, Cork. Shot in April 2005. Aperture ƒ/4.5 Camera Canon PowerShot A70 Focal length 13.4375mm Shutter speed 1/200s

Eyes on Fregatte Köln

Crewmen on the Fregatte Köln when it visited Cork in 2005 kept a close eye on me, Ryan and AJ as we photographed every inch of the ship we could see. Looking back over these photos reminds me that this was the day the cheap memory card I used at the time failed on me […]

Director's Cut

Director’s Cut

First of all Virgin Megastore was sold off to Zavvi and shortly afterwards they had a liquidation sale and went under. Now Director’s Cut are in there and it’s a depressing store. There’s no piped music to liven the dead atmosphere, oh dear! Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 33mm ISO 400 Shutter […]

Cobh-in-bw-001

Cobh in Black and White

A dump of the b/w images I shot in Cobh over the weekend. It was a strictly “stroll around and do nothing” day (so sorry Conor for not calling in!) as Adam was being minded by my sister. As I said a few days ago, I shot everything in black and white and I’m pleased […]

On the Boardwalk

On the Boardwalk

Phew! What a day! Today we had a great photowalk in Cork. I hesitate to say this, but I think it was probably the most enjoyable photowalk I’ve ever been on. We started out in the Montenotte Hotel, with tea and scones and a chat. After refreshments we headed up on the roof for a […]
