In an emergency such as a fire you want to be able to escape from a building quickly and be assured that there’s plenty of water to fight the flames. I presume these capped pipes have something to do with that purpose?
Fishing boats crowd the harbour in Ballycotton on a warm August afternoon.
This was taken in 2006, when I think I shot the rest of my Ballycotton images. I love the imposing clouds and the leading lines of the bows.
The donkey knows everything. He stands in his field every day contemplating life.
This is the same donkey I posted before in Baile na nGall, Co. Kerry. We passed that way last September and I didn’t see him so if you see a wandering donkey, tell him I said hi!
The sun had just set over this stretch of the water in Cork Harbour near Monkstown and the sky had turned a beautiful orange and purple and red and golden.
Much to the annoyance of my dog Oscar, I stopped and spent a good 10 minutes shooting this scene and basked in the beautiful colour.
The Nike Store, Niketown, on Union Square, San Francisco as seen in 2006.
San Francisco as seen from the hills surrounding the City. I took this back in August 2006.
Can you tell yet that I merged a few of my work directories after doing some house keeping work on my photo archive?
Thanks to Niall Kennedy for driving us up there!
On the way into Cork Airport I snapped this shot of the beautiful green fields of Co. Cork.
After the desert landscape of Arizona it was a relief to see familiar countryside again.
The Irish flag flies outside Horgans of Blarney, a souvenir shop in the village.
Despite the fact that it’s between the butcher’s and a pub, I’ve never been in there. I doubt most locals have been.
Still, nice to see the flags waving!
