SF Baseball cap

SF Baseball cap A baseball cap on the sidewalk in San Francisco attracted my attention while out walking. I wonder who lost it?

Colourful houses

Colourful houses Colourful buildings on the Grand Parade look out onto the continuing construction on the street. Who knows when it’ll end?

Gone shopping at Adams Kids

Gone shopping at Adams Kids Mom and daughter hurry past on Panna after shopping in Adams Kids. In the background is the old Dunnes Stores which has been pulled down leaving the front facing of the building and a wide swath of destruction and deconstruction behind it extending to Emmet Place. Cross processed in the […]

Cork flies the rebel flag

Cork flies the rebel flag Red and white flags flew all over Cork City today and for the past week in anticipation of the All Ireland Football Final between Cork and Kerry. Unfortunately Kerry won and decisively so too as I heard from my father-in-law Frank who filled me in on all the gory details!

I’ll see you later!

I’ll see you later! Business men near Union Square in San Francisco. Having a good time!

Overcast in Cork

Overcast in Cork An overcast and dull day in Cork a while back.

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.

Passenger Zone

Passenger Zone No parking between signs .. hotel guests with big bags approaching. Handle with care! Shot outside the hotel the out-of-towners in Automattic stayed in while in San Francisco! Don’t forget the exhibit in Mallow I mentioned in my gallery update starts tonight. I gave it a plug on ocaoimh.ie too so hopefully we’ll […]

Jesus Christ still loves you

Jesus Christ still loves you A year ago I photographed this man holding the sign saying Jesus Christ Loves You in San Francisco. Amazingly he’s still in the same spot. That’s dedication for you!

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.

Mannix and Culhane

Mannix and Culhanne Mannix and Culhanne on Washington St, Cork.

Children on the merry-go-round

Children on the merry-go-round Children smile and laugh as the fairground ride goes around and around! Linda and myself spent a good few minutes shooting this ride. I combined a long exposure and flash to capture the action and hoped to get a glimpse of a child’s smile. I think I was lucky to get […]

Shadows on Powell St

Shadows on Powell St The shadow cast by a young man waiting to cross the street forms the main subject of this unusual image. Sort of messes with your head doesn’t it?

Is it a bird, is it a plane, no! It’s the sky!

Is it a bird, is it a plane, no! It’s the sky! I have no idea what they were looking at because there wasn’t anything flying overhead. Better than waiting for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade to start I suppose! Taken on Paddy’s Day this year on Patrick’s Street, or Panna as it’s locally known.

Sometimes I just miss talking to you

Sometimes I just miss talking to you A sticker on the back of a STOP sign reads, “Sometimes I just miss talking to you” and is signed “The 508″. A message of love for someone missing, or mindless graffiti? What makes the image for me is the couple walking by at the bottom of the […]
