G-BKSP on Inch Strand

G-BKSP on Inch Strand Another shot from our few hours at Inch Strand in Co. Kerry last September. This is G-BKSP waiting on the beach to fly. Unlike the glider I posted earlier I saw this plane fly. Unfortunately conditions weren’t suitable for flying the gliders before we had to head home to Cork.

Clouds over Dingle

Clouds over Dingle Clouds floated by on a glorious September afternoon in Dingle, Co. Kerry. Tourists relaxed on seating on the waterfront. I just love clouds and wide angle shots!

Zooomr Mark III launches with some hiccups

After what seems like a long week of false starts and unfortunate hardware melt downs the new Zooomr launched this weekend. I haven’t logged in yet but I’m looking forward to exploring all the new features Kristopher has been working on. I do have a bone to pick with them. They are still not caching […]

Which way to Radio Kerry?

Which way to Radio Kerry? A wall in Killarney, Co. Kerry in February this year. I love the red brick and the assortment of colours – blue, red, gold, black and the creeping green at the end of the wall.

The curious dog

The curious dog While wandering about on St. Patrick’s Day this year I spotted this adorable little dog. I got a few snaps and his owner didn’t seem to mind. The doggy was more than happy at the attention and sniffed eagerly at my lens!

Tinfoil hat time! Google recognises you now!

Thanks Mike for pointing me towards this Arstechnica article about the new facial recognition in Google Image Search. If you add &imgtype=face to any image search url it will only show you faces. Try this search for Cork, Ireland and compare it with this facial search for the same terms. Scary eh? Ordinary image search […]

Yummy crisps

Yummy crisps What’s in a name? In Ireland and the UK they’re called crisps, but in the US they’re chips. Whatever they’re called they’re universally loved. I bet it’s all the MSG in them. The monosodium glutamate in them is the flavour enhancer that makes you want to have just-one-more-crisp. The Wikipedia page on the […]

Royal purple cider

Royal purple cider After a particularly grueling few hours traipsing around the shops in Cork I was on my way to Vibes and Scribes in Bridge Street when I spotted an empty can of Bulmers in front of the purple doors of an old building on Camden Place. In fact it’s the front door of […]

Donkey in the field

Donkey in the field I almost made an ass of myself and forget to post a picture today! You’d be saying to yourselves, “He haw-lways posts a picture every day, where is today’s one?” Never fear, here it is and I’ve run out of donkey jokes so it’s back to normal. Feel free to contribute […]

DPS Users use the GIMP too

My favourite post-processing application, the GIMP, featured highly on a recent Digital Photography School survey. Here are the top 5: Lightroom Photoshop CS2 Photoshop CS3 GIMP Picassa It just goes to show that price isn’t everything because a lot of people must have deep pockets to pay what Adobe charge for their products. I also […]

Lifebelt in the grass

Lifebelt in the grass A lifebelt lay in the grass at a beach on the Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry last September. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining, beautiful clouds contrasted with the deep blue of the sky and a light breeze blew off the sea. We were just going back to the […]

Adam and his baby soother

Adam and his baby soother Adam is 5 weeks old today! Last Wednesday we saw his first smile, or perhaps it was trapped wind because he was just after feeding but it was a beautiful sight to behold. He has smiled since too, and was especially cheerful this morning! Adam loves his baby soother though. […]

Cars speed past

Cars speed past Cars speed past as people wait for the traffic lights to change. I shot this by placing the camera on the railing of the bridge behind me.

Pedestrian Zone

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!
