Big Wheel in the Showgrounds

Big Wheel in the Showgrounds

The big wheel, as seen from The Atlantic Pond outside Pairc Ui Chaoimh in Cork. Sort of fitting that I post a photo of a fairground ride on the day that Michael Jackson is laid to rest. BTW – there are still places on the Cork photowalk on the 18th. It’s less than 2 weeks […]

Little Fluffy Clouds

Little Fluffy Clouds

Clouds drift over the River Lee across from Blackrock Village about a week ago. I’m trying out the preview of Bibble 5 Pro at the moment. Great DAM features, although it is starting to slow down after importing about 90,000 images and it’s reading from an external USB 2.0 drive. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS […]

The gull fight

Gulls fight over a few crumbs of bread at the Lough in Cork. Taken during a photowalk there last year. Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 200mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/400s

R&H Hall

R&H Hall

The huge bulk of R&H Hall can be seen for miles around, as telecoms companies noticed too when they planted their dishes and aerials on top of the building. It’s a prominent building in Cork Docklands, and surprisingly, I’ve only posted photos of it once before, when it was on fire 3 years ago. I […]

Waterford Glass

Waterford Glass

It’s funny the things that catch your eye. On a corner on Patrick’s Street there are these 3 signs: “Seiko”, “Waterford Glass” and “HMV”. Aperture ƒ/10 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/250s

Haircut, pint and hangover pills

So, start off in the College of Hairdressing to tighten up that stylish hair of yours, then off to the “Hi B” for a pint (but turn your mobile phone off!) and then downstairs to Minihan’s Pharmacy for the Alkazelser. Actually, I don’t like the Hi B. Any pub owner who verbally attacks his customers […]

Samskip Pioneer

Samskip Pioneer

Samskip Pioneer, a container ship, docked in Cork last weekend. We were down by the Marina in Blackrock on a blistering hot Saturday. While us Irish sat in the shade, Spanish students sat out in the 3pm sun, some wearing long sleeve tshirts! I know, I know, they’re used to the heat but the mind […]

C386, a fishing boat in Kinsale, photographed just over a year ago.

Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Beautiful, pretty pink flowers in Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork in July 2007. I already posted a photo of these flowers but this one was sitting in my TODO box for so long it had to see the light of day! Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 200mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/80s

The Big Slide

The Big Slide

In Fitzgerald’s Park a week ago the Street Performance World Championship 2009 brought the crowds to the park. This multi story slide was one of the main attractions. Huge long queue for it though. Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/200s

Daly's Bridge

Daly’s Bridge

Daly’s Bridge over the River Lee, or The Shakey Bridge is it’s locally. Shot on the way back to the car after SPWC on Sunday. This is the bridge that David Rowell & Co built! Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/100s

Street Performance World Championship 2009

Some photos from last Sunday when the Street Performance World Championship was held in Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork. I actually didn’t really see any performers because of the huge crowds. The place was packed with people. No wonder, when we went down around 6pm it was a glorious evening! These photos have also been uploaded to […]

Blue Doors

Blue Doors

Old blue doors near the Lough in Cork City. Shot on our photowalk there last year. There are still places left in the World Wide Photowalk here in Cork. If you’re around on July 18th, sign up and join us! Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/40s
