Pedestrian Crossing

Pedestrian Crossing

The pedestrian crossing outside Eason (I always say “Eason’s”, but it really is “Eason”. Just like Porter’s is “Porter”. These newsagents are a picky bunch!) where young and old traverse the street in relative safety. Yes, it’s the current header image on this blog. If you’re reading this in the future when I may have […]

Clancy’s Youghal

Clancy’s Bar and Restaurant in Youghal has apparently been closed for quite some time. I never knew the place but my wife was surprised and disappointed to see the For Sale signs outside. I didn’t even notice the people walking along the road until I looked at the photo on my monitor! Aperture ƒ/9 Camera […]

De Lorean DMC-12

De Lorean, the 80′s Belfast car manufacturer became a household name after their car’s appearance in Back to the Future. The name is instantly recognisable to a whole generation of people. Unfortunately the De Lorean company had already folded before those films were released. The car above is the De Lorean DMC-12, the only model […]

Blackrock Farmer’s Market

Last weekend we went down to Blackrock Village, Cork to visit the farmer’s market and go for a walk along the Marina. It was our first time there in quite a while and it was a lovely surprise to see my cousin’s wife Louise at one of the stalls. She sells beautiful jewelery so if […]

Tricolour Boy

A young boy sits on his dad’s shoulders to get a bird’s eye view of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork this year. This image reminds me of a photo I shot of a girl last year. She was standing on a wall or something and up high too! Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS […]

Patrick’s Day Spectator

A spectator watching the St Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork yesterday climbed up on the National Monument on the Grand Parade to get a better view. Lucky him. As I said yesterday, it was easier and more enjoyable photographing the parade spectators than the parade! Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 200mm ISO […]

La Fheile Phadraig i gCorcaigh

‘Se seo Lá Fhéile Phadraig inniu. Chuaigh me isteach sa chathair (gan an chlann) chun féachaint ar an paráid ach ni fhacha me moran de. Bhi an meid sin daoine ann. Ni raibh paisti in ann aon rud a fheisceant in aon chor. Bhi sé nios éasca agus bhain me nios mo taineamh as pictuiri […]

Hot Tasty Sausages

While out photowalking a hot sausages in a bun with a dab of mustard is just the thing to keep the hunger at bay. I bought the sausage in the bun being prepared above and totally enjoyed it, even if it was €4. Shot on Cornmarket Street at the Crepe Man stall during the pre-Irish […]

suffering in the heat

Suffering in the heat

It’s hard to believe that Ireland can be warm and roasting given the cold winds that blow around this time of year but back in June last year we had a heat wave. I can’t stand the heat of the sun, and by the looks of things, this gentleman isn’t too fond of it either. […]
