Toilet Trouble The toilets in Connolly Hall, Cork. This is that ugly ass black building across the river from the City Hall. It looks so out of place where it is, although developers are quickly changing the face of the city to match ..
Fitzgerald’s Park Bench A park bench in the lovely and picturesque Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork. Something awful happened. I went away with my family on a great weekend break on Friday and in the rush and stress I forgot to post some photos for the weekend. I’m catching up!
Musical Posters Wouldn’t it be great if posters sang to you? Christy Moore would sang a ballad about Guinness and a surf board while Lovely Girls would scream and shout. Meanwhile Shayne Ward would sing something or other. Not sure who he is. He won one of those x-factor things didn’t he? I like my […]
The MAC Counter at Brown Thomas Hands up now lads. How many of you have waited around while your significant other picked out makeup or browsed the aisles in a department store? Yeah, me too. This young fella was collecting the rubbish from the drawers and in contrast to the immaculately done up girls dressed […]
Luigi Malone’s Clock Behind the bar in Luigi Malone’s Restaurant in Cork are 2 large clock faces. The bar goes around in a U shape and the other face is directly behind this one. They’re very striking, and the first thing anyone notices when they come in the front door. This is the one facing […]
Honda 70 At first glance I thought this was a Honda 50 but closer inspection of the sticker reveals a “70″. There is more text that could be COB but if the Wikipedia page on the bike is right, it was probaby “CD” on it before it was ripped. Shot on the Grand Parade, right […]
Pig’s Head Apparently there’s a market for pig’s heads. I’ll eat all sorts of meat products, and I’ll eat them with little prompting but a pig’s head? I shot these two heads in the English Market last weekend. An American couple were looking at me as I shot this and afterwards the girl posed while […]
No more cheques please It’s high tech in the retail industry! No more cheques in Marks & Spencer stores from March 1st! I find it hard to imagine anyone paying for goods by cheque these days. Business dealings seem to be different though. One of these days we’ll figure out a safe way of handing […]
Snow on the runway On the way back from Arizona I flew via Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. I had a long wait but I have a laptop, a spare battery, DVD and Mame to keep me amused. I took a few photos too but I discovered shortly after taking this that photography in most parts of […]
Call me Spike Frost covered weeds still manage to grow and thrive in the cold. I saw this wonderful speckled white plant growing from a ditch yesterday morning and it looked very ominous. When I converted it to black and white I saw myself looking at something abstract, possibly evil, something that could be microscopic […]
The frosty daffodil This morning was a frosty one. My breath made clouds in the air and a light breeze carried away the warmth in the shadows. Thankfully there was a lovely sunrise that more than made up for the cold. Down at the end of our park there’s a small green area, and this […]
Thumbs up for Cork! You may remember this gentleman from a photo I posted around a year ago (it’s pure coincidence I’m posting this today! Really!) This was shot in Midleton, Co. Cork during the Food and Drink Festival in 2006. Nice guy who came over for a chat afterwards.
Spectators on the beach The hang gliding crowd attracted a bit of a crowd on Inch Beach in 2006. Well, it was late September and there wasn’t that many people on the beach in the first place, so 2 people isn’t so bad, eh? Hunger got the best of us and we watched as a […]
