Light Streaks of City Traffic

Light Streaks of City Traffic

A long exposure shot of traffic as it heads into Cork City from the direction of Blackpool. This was very difficult to take and the original shows quite a bit of shake even though I had the camera balanced on a pedestrian traffic light button thingy. Love the streaks though.

Hotel Los Fariones

Snow? Ice? Cold rain and biting wind? What are you talking about? Look at the sunshine streaming down through the palm trees! The swimming pool is nice and refreshing. I can dream can’t I? This is the view from our room in Hotel Los Fariones in Puerto Del Carmen. Lovely hotel, and while we were […]

Puerto Del Carmen Boats

Puerto Del Carmen Boats

I could post a photo of the snow that fell this morning in Blarney but I think everyone is sick of the cold weather. Instead here’s a photo from my honeymoon in Lanzarote. This was taken in Puerto Del Carmen on a roasting hot day when even the ground was too hot to touch! More […]

193 steps to Covent Garden

193 steps, but they’re all going up. We arrived in the Underground station at Covent Garden in the middle of the day when queues for the elevators up were *sooo* long. Actually, I didn’t know this at all. I had dawdled behind taking a few photos and recognised a few faces darting down a side […]

The Chicago Theatre

The Chicago Theatre on State Street in the city of the same name. The sign in front is hard to miss but I’ve never been in there. Maybe next time I visit Chicago. More info on the theatre’s history page. Love that Netscape favicon! This was shot in 2005 but I know I have shot […]

The bicycle butterfly

A bicycle tied to a post on Patrick’s Street, Cork late last November. I’m heading to London later today for my brother Donal‘s stag. Yes yes, wild weekend, etc etc. I’ll have my camera too of course and I’m staying next to King’s Cross Railway Station so I thought it would be great to go […]

Build 'em up and knock 'em down

Build ‘em up and knock ‘em down

We build them up and then knock them down. It’s expected that demolition of empty houses and residential housing estates will be a boon for the construction industry before too long. This is the junction in front of Emmett Place in Cork. Visible are the Cork Opera House and the cranes in the distance. WordPress […]

wild woodbine

Wild Woodbine

Wild Woodbine, an advert in Cronins Pub, sits under the counter. The pub is full of memorabilia which adds atmosphere but I suppose they were probably bought in a dusty warehouse full of such things for the tourists. Very nice pub though.

Father Mathew's yoyo
