San Francisco Streets

San Francisco Streets A cyclist races across across an almost empty junction in San Francisco. I just love the sign on top of the building. Totally out of place amid the beautiful architecture and detail of it’s resting place.

Crossing the Finish Line

Crossing the Finish Line Three girls run past the “Finish” line after the Blarney half marathon on Sunday. It was a funny place to put that sign as it was well behind the actual finish line. Guess they didn’t have any poles to stick it up on ..

Light reflects on the Lough

Light reflects on the Lough Light trails from passing cars and street lights reflect on the calm surface of the Lough in Cork in this long exposure shot.

Bull’s Tavern

Bull’s Tavern The logo on his shirt, "Bull’s Tavern" caught my eye as we waited on the sidewalk for the lights to change. This is near Union Square in San Francisco. Check out the Macy’s sign! Shopping heaven for those so addicted.

Clouds move at night

Clouds move at night Clouds fly across the sky in this nighttime shot of Cork City. A crane is in the middle distance, practically a symbol of the City at this stage. The building site in the foreground is on the old site of the Guy And Company building. There’s St. Anne’s Church or Shandon […]

Oscar! Come here!

Oscar! Come here! Imagine the scene. Out on a pier, I’m lying on the wooden beams over the low tide surf on the rocks below and I’m calling to my dog. Thankfully Oscar obliged and I made this photo as he walked towards me with his tongue half-hanging out of his mouth. There’s Jacinta in […]

Bus stop on Mardyke Parade

Bus stop on Mardyke Parade The bus stop on the Mardyke Parade outside the old Erinville Hospital is on a bus lane, just outside a school. Every single school morning the bus lane is jammed with cars dropping children off.

California Sunset

California Sunset On the way to the Automattic beach houses last night we drove along the famous road that featured in Basic Instinct. I opened the window on Toni’s car and took a few photos of the sunset. I hoped for it to happen, but I was very lucky that the sun was blocked out […]

The Erinville Maternity Hospital, Cork

Splendor in the grass

When the sun is shining and there is nothing to do except eat a nice picnic and stroll by the beach I’m in heaven. I shot these bright little daisies down in Garrettstown, […]

Sky High Cork City
