Running in the scorching heat on Waterloo Road near the end of the Blarney half marathon.

Finishing the race in that searing heat is quite an accomplishment. Everyone received a medal at the finish.
Well done to everyone who took part!
They guys and gals at Stewart Photo Supplies really want me and lots of other photography related people to know about their photography trade show in Cork on the 17th from 11am to 7pm. Unfortunately they completely ruined their chances of a favourable mention from because of the following.
CCing the info @ mallowcameraclub.com email address along with dozens of other people and organisations. Hello everybody!
BIG BRIGHT COLOURED TEXT WAS NEVER IN FASHION AND DOES NOT LOOK PROFESSIONAL.
Anyway, there’s a photographic trade show on in Cork on the 17th of September in Moran Silver Springs Hotel. I only mention this because there are some interesting companies exhibiting there including Sony, Epson, Canon and JSP Imaging (who they linked to incorrectly, that’s their old site which a domainer now has control of).
Send a text email the next time and don’t CC everyone, please.
This couple posed for me as they walked along the Waterloo Road. I’d venture to say he probably ran the half marathon in less than 90 minutes.
We chatted for a few minutes near the finish line while runners streamed past. He finished in 1hr 26mins. Next time I’m bringing a notepad and a pen to get names!
Two lads well on the way to recovery after the half marathon in Blarney. Under the scorching sun I don’t know how they managed to run it in 1hr 35mins!
The annual Blarney Half Marathon was held yesterday under a blistering sun. Ireland enjoyed a week of superb weather and yesterday could have been the hottest. The race started at 11am and runners followed a course around Blarney, finishing on Waterloo Road sometime after noon. I have nothing but admiration for those guys. All I wanted to do was sit in the shade an enjoy a cool drink! More photos to come tomorrow.
Four runners who took part in today’s half-marathon in Blarney rest after their ordeal. They were too out of breath to talk but kindly consented to having their photo taken.
More photos to come tomorrow!

The photography exhibit last night was a great success. I don’t think there were any sales, but it was nice to see everyone again, and the number of babies prompted a few people to comment that the club should get a creche in ..
John Doheny has updated the original announcement post with more photos. Thanks to Damien and Donal for linking back to my post. Hopefully someone will remember over the next few weeks that the exhibit is in the library and pop in for a look!

I received an email yesterday from Bibble Labs. They’ve updated their very popular raw converter to support the Canon 40D. Could they be the first to market with that support? I don’t know, but the new version is free for existing users and it’s a simple upgrade.

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!
