O'Briens Sandwich Bar

O’Briens Sandwich Bar

“O’Briens’ HQ placed in examinership” according to this news report yesterday. This is their fairly recently opened (and more recently closed) “sandwich bar” on Oliver Plunkett Street here in Cork. Loved their Triple Decker, even if it was a little pricey. Hope the company survives. Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 21mm ISO […]

In Fitzgerald’s Park a week ago the Street Performance World Championship 2009 brought the crowds to the park. This multi story slide was one of the main attractions. Huge long queue for it though. Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/200s

Emergency at Kilkee Beach

Emergency at Kilkee Beach

The lifeboat at Kilkee is stored at the top of this ramp going down to the water at the beach. At low tide it’s quite a distance and the wide angle makes a great job of getting it all in! Those two dots on the beach are my family! Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D […]

Street Performance World Championship 2009

Some photos from last Sunday when the Street Performance World Championship was held in Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork. I actually didn’t really see any performers because of the huge crowds. The place was packed with people. No wonder, when we went down around 6pm it was a glorious evening! These photos have also been uploaded to […]

Polaroid

A camera shop on the main street in Ennis, County Clare proudly boasts it sell Polaroid products. I wanted to go in but the time just wasn’t right. Love all the red in this image. This is about as close as you’ll see me get to film on this blog! Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS […]

Where you'll find Fianna Fail

Where you’ll find Fianna Fail

In years to come they’ll talk about the Fianna Fail posters of 2009. This was the year when many party members chose to hide the name “Fianna Fail” on their posters. You’d have to go right up to them to see that damned name. One suspects they’re probably embarrassed by their association with Fianna Fail, […]

Cab 3181

San Francisco will be the gathering place for a large number of WordPress fans at the end of the month as they go to the 2009 San Francisco WordCamp. I won’t be there unfortunately but places are already in short supply, if not all sold out at this stage. It’s going to be a blast! […]

Honeymoon Cabaret

Yesterday we had lunch in Ammicus, in Douglas while outside the stalls of a market sold all sorts of foods and produce. The road was closed off to traffic for street performers to entertain the crowds. Unfortunately rain probably dampened the spirits of all involved. The showers were really bad! Here’s Marc and Svetlana Buttersworth, […]

Kilkee Beach

Kilkee Beach in County Clare is a beautiful stretch of sand going on forever and ever. Well, seems like it, it’s a massively long beach and on the day we accidentally discovered it the sun was beating down on us. Hooray! I have no idea what RMA stands for. That little rock was sitting next […]
