1964 Morris Minor

1964 Morris Minor

A Morris Minor, registered in 1964, parked in Bantry town in County Cork. Pictured in September 2008 while on holiday there.

After reading the Wikipedia page on the car this is probably a Minor 1000.

False dawn of the city

False dawn of the city

As you may have already guessed, that’s not the dawn. It’s the lights of Cork City (and Blarney) shining and into the sky in a long exposure shot I made last August.

I had meant to mention this sooner but 2 weeks ago I was shocked to hear about the death of Debbie Metrustry (@debbiemet), a wonderful person I had the pleasure of conversing with by tweet and by email over the course of the last year or so. She even won a print on this blog last year, but between this and that I never got around to sending it to her. I hope I can get in touch with her family at some stage and offer it to them instead.

Debbie’s blog on WordPress.com is still there and will be as long as the service is there (which is forever, right?), I’ve seen to that.

If you knew Debbie you might like to read the reaction from other people who knew her.

RIP Debbie.

Petrol pumps sit idle at the same derelict station I shot this flo gas photo.

One of my photos will be auctioned off today as part of Bid For Haiti in the Metropole Hotel in Cork. Paul O’Mahony is organising it but my brother Donal is helping to get prints together.
