Football on the beach

3 boys playing with a football on Garretstown Beach. The tide was coming in and I watched them kick the ball out into the water. The day was freezing though with a strong offshore wind. Brrrr.

View on Camden Quay

Camden Quay in Cork City with the north side of the City behind it. St. Anne’s (or Shandon Bells) and the Catholic North Cathedral in the background.

Loved the light when I saw this scene. The setting sun cast shadows on the buildings and reflected off the church steeples.

Abandoned Interior

The interior of a cottage at the picturesque Brandon Creek on Slea Head, County Kerry.

Outside there’s a planning permission notice, dated August 2008 and written in Irish. I presume the owner is no longer in a hurry to develop his property. All he wanted to do was replace the roof and add an extension.
