Street

Chris 64

Chris 64 The crowds watch a festival in Union Square, San Francisco. I’m not sure who Chris is but I’m guessing he’s a rugby player? Hmm, Flickr are still mangling the image URL. I hope they fix it soon.

Innovative Streets

Innovative Streets It’s good to look down sometimes. I think this was used to hold a decorative safety pole but I don’t remember ever seeing it used. There are poles on the other side of this narrow street however. The street of course is Paul Street behind Waterstones. I was going to blog that yesterday […]

The Lady Smiles

The Lady Smiles On her lunch break she smiles instead of smoking, at least for a moment. This is the second and final image of the Lady on her break series. If you look very carefully at the window you’ll see my face, my hand, and the back of Jacinta’s head as we walked past. […]

The Lady smokes

The Lady smokes On her break, she lights up a cigarette to relax. Who did she see? The Magnum Blog has been running for a few weeks. I blogged the original opening of the site ages ago, but it wasn’t ready for prime time and it made it’s debut a short while ago. A few […]

Ireland V England at Croke Park

Ireland V England at Croke Park Ireland played England in rugby at Croke Park yesterday, and Ireland won, 43 points to 13! This was an historic occasion. Landsowne Road, where rugby and soccer matches are normally played is being renovated. Croke Park is the headquarters of the GAA, the native Irish sports of football and […]

The shadows have it all

The shadows have it all Sometimes it’s the shadows that are the focus of my camera rather than the people in it.

Escalator Moments

Escalator Moments A one second exposure captures the movement through time of the escalator in Nikeworld San Francisco last August. This is one of a series of shots, including a few of Mark and Andy although I think this is the most dramatic of them. I wasn’t going to post this at all except that […]

Girl reflecting on bus

Girl reflecting on bus Waiting at the traffic lights, the camera can still see you, even if it’s not pointed in your direction. Those are the buildings of the Grand Parade in Cork behind her.

Mom and the girls

Mom and the girls A mother and her daughters on St. Patrick Street, Cork last year. Look carefully in the window. Can you see what time of year it was?

Man and pipe at the FM Store

Man and pipe at the FM Store Outside the FM Store, St. Patrick Street Cork. I was walking past when I spotted this scene unfold. I didn’t even see the pipe in the old man’s hand until later, but I was very happy with what came out. If only that girl had turned around. The […]

Never mind the bollocks

Never mind the bollocks A Sex Pistols fan on his bike last April. This was taken on Washington Street, Cork while waiting for the street lights to change. I was walking, not in a car! PS. Mallow Camera Club did really well yesterday at the SACC competition! The club won the event outright and also […]

A kiss at Finn’s Corner

A kiss at O’Neills Corner A kissing couple outside Finn’s clothing store on the corner of Grand Parade and Washington Street, Cork. This was way back in August last year when temperatures were a little higher than they are now. Psychedelic colouring comes from the “soft light” plasma layer I plastered on top of the […]

The red and white man

The red and white man A street entertainer on stilts entertained the crowd at the Midleton Food and Drink Festival last September. I took photos of him in Cork too and I think he recognised me and my wife as he made a beeline for us and stopped to chat. This was shot from below […]

Tourists on the tram

Tourists on the tram Tourists on a tram in Chinatown, San Francisco. I got lots of smiles and waves from the passengers when they saw my camera pointed at them!

The couch on the street

The couch on the street A couch rests against a pole on a street junction in San Francisco. That’s a novel way of getting rid of unwanted furniture but I wonder who’ll pick it up? For all I know, it could still be there with a family of squirrels living in it. The same happens […]
