Run for the bus!

A bit of an experiment this one. As I walked along Merchant’s Quay this woman and her husband barrelled past. The picture of her husband is simply a blur but I like what I got of her.
The streaky lines are caused by an excessive dodge/burn tool but I like the effect so I left it in. What d’you think?

Photos of the day: Annaweb, NoWords

Skibbereen 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 exposure in each accordingly. I’m very happy with my work on this one!

A Life Line

A life ring may save your life some day.

Moynihan’s Poultry

A long exposure shot in the English Market in the vicinity of one of the many chicken meat shops.

The camera was set to f/8.0 and placed on top of a wall. In this semi-dark passage the exposure was 1/4 second blurring the passing people nicely but capturing the relatively motionless shop keepers.

Kay O’Connell

Kay O’Connell’s is probably the biggest of the fishmongers in the English Market, Cork.

Handing it over

I expect there are three generations of one family here: grandmother, mother and child. A moment in time captured on Paul Street, Cork.

Yeah! I’m in town!

A girl on the phone in Dawnt Square Cork, dressed in the height of youth fashion: the obligatory tracksuit!

Cone and Barrow

A workman lifts his wheelbarrow on Grand Parade, Cork a few weeks back.

No more Fred photos yet, I’ve been way too busy, and we’re headed to the Spiegeltent tonight to see Mick Flannery so tomorrow will be another street shot!

De-construction on Grand Parade

The construction site that is the Grand Parade right now but it will soon look like Patrick’s Street with broad pavements, paving and those flag bearing poles that are so prominent on our main thoroughfare.

No Fred photos today, I haven’t had time to work on any. Expect more next week!
