House on Lower Glanmire Road, Cork

House on Lower Glanmire Road, Cork

A derelict house on the Lower Glanmire Road in Cork as it existed in 2004, almost ten years ago. Now there’s a bridge across the road nearby obscuring this view and the house is boarded up.

Fire Dancers in Santa Cruz

Fire Dancers in Santa Cruz

One from a few months back. Automattic held their annual grand meetup in California this year and we split our time between San Francisco and Santa Cruz. On our final night in Santa Cruz there was a small party for everyone and fire dancers appeared to entertain us. I was across the poll from them […]

Blarney Castle in the Sun

Blarney Castle in the Sun

I walked around Blarney Castle this morning. It was around 2C and it felt it when I was in the shade but the rising sun was glorious and warmed the Castle in a lovely way.

Horse Trough in Parnell Place

Horse Trough in Parnell Place

It’s been many years since horses have drunk from this trough in Parnell Place, Cork but it’s great this old street furniture is still here. There’s a similar one on Alfred Street, in front of Mc Loughlin’s.

An Autumn Ladybird

An Autumn Ladybird

Winter is almost upon us and we’ve had plenty of cold days so my son was amazed when he saw a ladybird on a wall yesterday! I can’t imagine how it survived but maybe he had a secret hideout with a roaring fire going in the hearth and comfy chairs and lots of cups of […]

Sunset over Cork City

Sunset over Cork City

The sun sets over Cork City as seen from Mayfield yesterday evening. Love the colour of the sun shining on the underside of the cloud!

Sunrise on the wharf in Santa Cruz, California just over a month ago.

Sunrise in Playa Blanca

Sunrise in Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca lies on the southern coast of the island of Lanzarote. It’s a beautiful town, built entirely with tourism in mind. Sunrise wasn’t what I had hoped it would be. The sun is blocked by the new Rubicon Marina (it’s so new that Google Maps thought we were swimming in the sea when we […]

Sunlight on the River

Sunlight on the River

Have you ever read Terry Pratchett’s description of the dawn light as it flows over Discworld? Not so much flows, but rather sluggishly crawls over the landscape. Loved that and that’s what comes to mind sometimes when I see photos like this. Pictured in the grounds of Blarney Castle last week.

Sunlight through trees

Sunlight through trees

It was another foggy morning in Blarney but not as bad as the last one. This time I had my camera with me and walked up to Blarney Castle where I got some nice shots of the trees, fog and river. I loved the sight of the morning sunlight streaming through the trees and fog. […]

Morning Fog in Blarney

Morning Fog in Blarney

We had thick white fog this morning in Blarney. At it’s worst I could probably see about twenty metres before everything became a white haze. Shot on my Galaxy S4 and developed in Lightroom.

The waves of Santa Cruz

Waves crash on the beach in front of the hotel in Santa Cruz where Automattic recently held a company meetup.

Sunrise over Blarney

Sunrise over Blarney

This morning my son and I joined other parents and children to walk to school. It was a beautiful morning and I captured the glow of the early morning sun before it broke over the horizon and over the roof of Blarney Woollen Mills.

North Cork Kittens

North Cork Kittens

Budget 14 is started shortly but I doubt these kittens are interested. While visiting friends near Fermoy we went for a walk and came across 5 beautiful kittens wandering down the road. My wife scooped up one of them and a local resident stopped to take the kitten. Eventually, there were three cars parked along […]
