Pedestrian Zone

Many of the side streets off St. Patrick’s Street in Cork are now pedestrian zones. In fact, Oliver Plunkett Street is closed off to traffic on Saturdays too which is great for shoppers.

Check out Donal’s latest photos from his trip to Lesotho. The second group portrait is particularly good!

MEH! No Parking!

Ah graffiti! That most visible of teenage expression on our streets and walls.

Anyway, I can’t remember where I took this. It could be one of the side streets off St. Patrick’s Street, but that’s about as vague as “somewhere in Cork” to be honest.
Typical Heineken banner flying in the background so there’s a pub around there.

King of beers

Crossing the street on St. Patrick’s Quay, Cork.

Guinness

Guinness, world famous stout brewed in Dublin, Ireland. It’s also the tipple every tourist to the country samples but I prefer beer myself! 🙂

This is a sign on a pub on Bridge Street. It’s the one on the corner near Vibes and Scribes. What’s it called?

Heatons Awaken Your Senses

I jumped at the chance to make this photo when I saw the colour of the Heatons bag and the Super Valu advert on the bus shelter. Only later did I notice just how well the red or wine colours match!
Is there a subtle marketing ploy at play here?

Barratts on Patrick’s Street

A young man enjoying the sun on a warm September afternoon on Cork’s main thoroughfare, St. Patrick’s Street, or Panna as it’s sometimes known locally. That’s probably an iPod he’s listening to isn’t it?

Barratts shoe shop is in the background. The side of that shop is visible in Walk This Way.

PS. Haydn has blogged about the new gallery in West Cork he’s opening. I’ll be exhibiting there, as long as I can find time to get a few images printed and framed. Haydn says Ryan is contributing too which I didn’t know! Ryan – must talk to you about printing, framing and sizes! Conor picked up on it too. Harbour View is just down the road for him so I shall expect to see you there on the 31st!

Boy all alone

A little boy sits on the ground near some bikes while all around people talk and enjoy the day. This was taken at the Midleton Food and Drink Festival last year.

In the last 3 weeks I’ve worked on perhaps 3 photos, but luckily I had another 50 prepared to tide me over the weeks following the birth of Adam. Now where are those nappies…

Autumn Leaf

A leaf lies on the ground in the public park in Douglas opposite Tesco.
An ambulance drives past on the busy road.

The face painting girl

This young lady was painting the faces of kids at the Midleton Food and Drink Festival when I took this photo. She was really enjoying herself as were the kids!
