The candle seller’s red hat

The candle seller’s red hat This man was selling scented candles on a small table in front of the Crawford Art Gallery. The sense of smell is one of our most primitive and releases memories and stirs emotions. He was doing a brisk trade. When I saw his woolly red hat I had to make […]

Cork St Patrick’s Festival Market

Cork St Patrick’s Festival Market One side of Academy Street was taken up by a long line of stalls populated by an international host of sellers! There were biscuits and cakes from Brittany, soaps and wooden toys from France, clothes and trinkets from Peru and lots more. I took a few shots of this scene […]

Such is the wonder of childhood

Such is the wonder of childhood A young child watches a street performer go through his act on Patrick’s Street, Cork last Saturday as part of the St. Patrick’s Festival 2006.

Arrival of the L

Arrival of the L I love capturing motion and stillness in one frame and shooting underground in a subway station is perfect because: low light, fast moving train with bright internal lights, waiting passengers. I think I took this in one of the stations under State Street, Chicago. Have a great time at the blog […]

Fixing up the Apple Store

Fixing up the Apple Store Workers pictured in the Apple Store Magnificent Mile, Chicago. The top of the image is the front and side of the store. This is the store in which I was asked not take photos in 2003!

Small Figures

Small Figures Small figures run for cover to get out of the downpour. You’ll be glad to hear that this is the last of my shots from this square for the time being! Pictures of the day: mute, Eric, Iced Coffee, nowords, Gareth Marlow, Learning to see, Mystery Me

Not happy in the rain

Not happy in the rain Moments after my previous shot another group ran for cover from the downpour! Definitely not “singing in the rain” this morning!

Grab your bag and run!

Grab your bag and run! I’m not sure where this is. We sheltered from a very heavy rain storm and watched while people ran for cover from all over. Thankfully the storm didn’t last too long and I wandered to Millennium Park!

Old Navy’s Fred

Old Navy’s Fred If you wander into the Old Navy Store on State Street in Chicago you may bump into Fred. He has worked there for years, he’s very patient, nice and accommodating and did his level best to help us get the best bargains while shopping! This isn’t a great photo, it was a […]

Please don’t feed the pigeons

Please don’t feed the pigeons The sign obviously hasn’t worked! This was on South Wabash, Chicago around the same time this photo was taken.

Feeding The Duck

Feeding The Duck Urban ducks and wild fowl are luckier than their country brethren. People think they are cute and feed them! This is the same duck I posted before at the Crown Fountains, Chicago.

Smile Please! You’re on Camera!

Smile Please! Pictured by the Crown Fountains, Chicago. The guy in the middle was doing handstands in the water earlier and they were having a great time! He’s also pictured in this photo looking at one of the fountains!

Religion isn’t free

Religion isn’t free A preacher on State Street, just outside Old Navy. I seem to recall he was there way back in 2003 too. I didn’t listen to anything he said but as I passed he pushed a sheet of paper into my hand. I made to take it but he wanted a quarter for […]
