A rainy day on the street

A rainy day on the street It’s raining in Cork, possibly. The weather has been all upside down this summer. By the time you see this on my photoblog, I’ll be on my way to San Francisco. Check my Flickr stream for tomorrow’s pic I couldn’t run my future posting script because Flickr changed their […]

Girl with the leprechauns in her hair On Patrick’s Day all sorts of head gear and clothes are worn by people all over the world. This girl had a hair band with 2 leprechauns on springy stalks! See the shamrock on her cheek? Shot on St. Patrick’s Street, Cork last March.

Make bubbles for the kids

Make bubbles for the kids Blowing bubbles on the street is a great way to keep children occupied! On St. Patrick’s Day this year a fairy lady blew bubbles for these kids who were having a ball catching them!

The Bike at the Library

The Bike at the Library Cork City Library on the Grand Parade used to have railings in front for locking up your bike. Those railings disappeared a few months ago but people still leave their bikes there. The library itself will soon be the subject of a major facelift as a developer expands it into […]

Eye of the Shih Tzu

Eye of the Shih Tzu This is Oscar, our Shih Tzu. He has been a part of our family for just over a year now and he’s very devoted to my wife Jacinta. He loves playing with me too, but I know who he’d save from a sinking ship! We were worried what would happen […]

Walking exercise for the kids

Walking exercise for the kids Walking as an exercise is a great way to lose the pounds and get in shape, which is all well and good when you’re a toddler and you’re pushed around in a pram all day! This was shot on Maylor Street, Cork a few months back when it was still […]

Killarney’s main street

Killarney’s main street This one’s for John. He should be able to see his surname on the far right of this picture. Way back in February this year Killarney was going through it’s own turmoil with road works that pretty much did for traffic along this particular street. I’d like to see any SUV traverse […]

Girls dressed in white

Girls dressed in white Mommy and daughter are dressed all in white as they hurry around town shopping. Taken on Patrick’s Street while I tried to dodge the previously mentioned hurrying mother and another shopper who had just been in to Awear.

Shoe Shopping

Shoe Shopping Off to the shops? Looks like these ladies, young and slightly older, have been busy already in “Shoe Zone” and other stores doing some shoe shopping. Mum looks a bit stressed, but daughter is off in her own world and probably enjoying the day! This image was taken moments before I shot The […]

Boy all alone on the street

Boy all alone It’s strange how you can be stuck in your own little world and not be aware of anything around you. All around this boy were couples, either hand in hand, walking together or even framing him in the middle of the image, but I’m struck by his solitary movement through the street. […]

Care and attention

Care and attention It was February. The sun was trying to shine but it was a little nippy out. You need to wrap up against the cold breeze! Man and daughter or maybe granddaughter pictured on Patrick’s Street in Cork.

What’s in the bag?

What’s in the bag? A young lady checked her bag just outside Paul Street Shopping Centre in Cork. Wide angle lens makes for weird contortions but I like it!
