Signs

Skibbereen or Hospital

Skibereen or Hospital A sign in the foreground of the main square in Bantry, Co. Cork. We went to Ahakista eventually! This is made from one exposure but I had this great looking sky and underexposed buildings and ground detail. To get an even exposure I split the photo using two layers and adjusted the […]

Inchadoney Deliveries

Incadoney Deliveries A simple street sign outside the hotel at Inchadoney Beach.

Tithe Eireannacha

Tithe Eireannacha Nestled in between the city centre of Cork and Blackrock lies an old and historic part of Cork City. Albert Road and Hibernian Buildings are only two streets in this area and should be familiar to anyone on the south side of the city. Welcome everyone from tportal.hr and htnet.hr! Can someone translate […]

Your vehicle has been clamped

Your vehicle has been clamped This is the sign that drivers hate to see. Clampers are a relatively new phenomenon in Ireland but are reviled even more than traffic wardens now.

Picadilly Lane

Picadilly Lane Cork has it’s own Picadilly, Picadilly Lane leads off North Main Street and is situated next to the butchers I featured previously. A quick search of Google didn’t find anything about it but hopefully someone will stumble across this post and add whatever knowledge they have about this small lane.

Protests at Lincoln Park Zoo

Protests at Lincoln Park Zoo Protests at Lincoln Park Zoo Protests at Lincoln Park Zoo Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago seems to be the centre of protests by animal welfare activists on an on-going basis. Conditions for the animals in the zoo must be exceptionally bad as animal deaths are reported regularly. It’s a shame, […]

Old Navy’s Fred

Old Navy’s Fred If you wander into the Old Navy Store on State Street in Chicago you may bump into Fred. He has worked there for years, he’s very patient, nice and accommodating and did his level best to help us get the best bargains while shopping! This isn’t a great photo, it was a […]

Please don’t feed the pigeons

From Madison to Sears

From Madison to Sears I worked in the heart of the financial district of Chicago in the summer of 2003. Each morning I took the brown line of the L to Washington/Wells and walked the two blocks to the building where I worked. This is the view only a few blocks away. You can see […]

Get There, Go Anywhere

Get There, Go Anywhere Bicycle locked up and bus arriving on the Grand Parade a few nights ago. It’s been quite a while since I used either forms of transport. What caught your eye first about this image? The poster, the foreground or the bus?

Queen’s Old Castle

Queen’s Old Castle After yesterday’s shot I decided to take a photo of the Virgin Megastore which now occupies the site of the old Queen’s Old Castle Shopping Center. Off to the left is the entrance to Argos. No misleading titles today! Shot was taken with the camera lying on the ground and I can […]

Stop! The Birds!

Stop! The Birds! Street lighting and STOP sign pictured on the quays just up from here last Saturday. I wanted to make the stop sign jump out a bit more but didn’t want to force it too much. I do like the leading lines the guide the eye to the top of the pole! And […]

Which Way?

Which Way? Oysterhaven, Roberts cove, Cork? Where?

The Signs in Blarney

The Signs in Blarney The signs in Blarney always point towards a B&B! This bunch of signs do anyway. Right at the end of Station Road there’s a pole with signs to about a dozen B&Bs! If you ever need somewhere to stay in Blarney you shouldn’t have trouble finding accomodation! Link of the Day […]
