Mother and baby on the street

Mother and baby on the street A mother and her baby stroll along St. Patrick’s Street Cork. This was taken last September in beautiful Autumn weather. This morning started with a bang when Jacinta woke me at 5am because an ear infection was bothering her so much. We went to South Doc who were absolutely […]

Expectation

This photo was taken from the far left of Yellow Boxes. Patrick’s Hill is visible in background as you follow the road up the incline. […]

Looking up at Union Square

Looking up at Union Square A festival or competition was being held on the beautiful August day we wandered through Union Square, San Francisco. It provided ample inspiration for photos although we didn’t linger long because we wanted to see more of the city. The statue pictured is in the center of the Square and, […]

San Francisco Tourists

San Francisco Tourists Tourists stopped on the sidewalk off Union Square in San Francisco last summer. Despite the city’s reputation for fog the day was sunny and clear. I had a great time doing some street photography of course!

Father and son in the square

Girls on the street

Girls on the street St. Patrick’s Day brought out a huge crowd onto the streets and here’s a group of girls we bumped into on Patrick’s Street. We were on our way to a cafe for refreshment when I spotted a bicycle chained to a pole, but it had fallen down. As is my way […]

Animal Care Society Collection

Animal Care Society Collection Volunteers from the Animal Care Society were out in force on Saturday collecting to raise funds. We bumped into Beamish and his owner and I forgot to ask her name, but hopefully she’ll see this picture as I gave her one of my cards. Beamish was lovely and very placid, perfect […]

Gatecrashing on Caroline Street

Gatecrashing on Caroline Street Another shot from Sunday at Stanley Super 800′s recording of the Gatecrashing video. The multi-shot posts are such a pain to do the rest of these will be single photo posts!

City people in a b/w world

City people in a b/w world Shopping, talking, walking and rushing. People in the concrete jungle. Selective colourisation using a layer mask to hide a b/w layer above the original colour layer. Shot from the same place I took this photo in front of The Body Shop in Cork.

Drag the child shopping

The eyes in the bus

The eyes in the bus A child looking out the back window of a bus. Weird colours and look due to some experimenting with new plugins. Way overblown I know but I gotta have some fun sometimes!

Big and crazy hats were the order of the day for many visitors and spectators Crowd Safety officials had their hands full with the large crowd at the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Cork. I […]

A Photographer’s rights around the world

Do you recklessly walk around urban areas with your camera like I do? Are you worried? A few days ago I received an email from John Hennessy asking me about street photography and especially what rights and responsibilities do I as a photographer have when out with my camera on the street. Many moons ago […]

Sleeping it off in Cork City

Sleeping it off in Cork City As a rule I don’t photograph the homeless very often but I don’t think the sleeping gentleman in this photo was homeless. Rather a heavy night on the town I suspect. This was snapped while walking past Marks & Spencers on Patrick’s Street last year. I spotted the security […]
