Yeah! I’m in town!

Cone and Barrow

The Tin Pub in Ahakista

Fat Boy Harley

De-construction on Grand Parade

De-construction on Grand Parade The construction site that is the Grand Parade right now but it will soon look like Patrick’s Street with broad pavements, paving and those flag bearing poles that are so prominent on our main thoroughfare. No Fred photos today, I haven’t had time to work on any. Expect more next week!

Sunset at Drake’s Pool

Oscar in the grass

Oscar in the grass Oscar sitting patiently for us while we finished a bbq at my sister-in-law’s house! This required quite a bit of work because I had to clone out his lead, 3 garden chairs and the side of the bbq. Is it obvious where? Buy this as a print from $16.58

Rock Landscape

The Swan Gang

The Swan Gang Tough looking swans gather for bread at the Lough in Cork for bread. The problem with shooting dangerous wildlife with a wideangle lens is that unless you stick the camera in their faces nobody will believe you were risking life and limb by leaning down right next to them when shooting. Well, […]

Clinging Flowers
