Housing market slow?

The Irish housing market is slowing down but sales are still being made.

A tiny house down the road from this one in Blarney sold a few weeks ago even though I’m sure you could hardly swing a cat in it …

You’re a star

So that’s what happens to reality tv show judges when they retire. They go off to Dingle and work on a trawler!

In the background is an old burned out trawler that has been tied up to the quay in Dingle for at least the last 18 months. I have photos of it from last year too!

Towering over the Elysian building site

It’s amazing how much this building site has changed in the last few years. This was taken last May. Now if you took this picture much of the sky would be blocked out by the 3 or 4 storey building work on this side of the site.

The Stanley Super 800 crowd

The crowd went mad cheering and shouting when filming of Stanley Super 800’s Gatecrashing video finally stopped.

You wouldn’t believe how many takes a music video takes but they were as vibrant and cheerful at the end as at the start! Amazing!

Image processed through the “Urban Acid” plugin that appeared on the GIMP Users mailing list last week. Nice effect!

Randles Court Starlights

We stayed in The Randles Court Hotel in Killarney, Co. Kerry last February and one night I wandered out to take a few shots.

This was a long exposure shot, with the aperture closed down as much as possible to f/22.

Lovely hotel too!
