Walking Patrick’s Bridge

Pictured walking along Patrick’s Bridge, Cork on Saturday evening. What really attracts me to this image, despite it’s obvious flaws, is the figure in the dead-centre. There’s light all around yet here’s a walking shadow.

Running around Eighteen Turns

We went down to Fota House a few weeks ago to see Eighteen Turns created by Daniel Libeskind. We weren’t as lucky as Ryan as there were parents with kids running and screaming around the piece all afternoon.
What better way to remember the day than the photo above eh?

Working

When you travel to Cork by train you’ll pass underneath the north side of the city through a railway tunnel. We had to switch trains on the way back from Dublin the other day and finished our journey in one of Iarnrod Eireann’s old stock. They didn’t even turn the lights on as we went through the tunnel but that gave me the opportunity to snap this gentleman working.

HOWTO: Photo was a 20 second exposure and his face was completely blown out but by decreasing the contrast I brought out his reflection in the window. B/W conversion was done using the channel mixer with RGB settings of 29.6/161.7/-200 to give a psuedo infra-red effect.

Many Faces

The many faces of advertising and humanity

Sign of the Times

Spotted in the side door of a clothes shop. Looks like the owner doesn’t like mornings!

Can, the drain

Mackey’s in Blarney

Mackey’s is a restaurant in Blarney which I have yet to visit. To be honest, I haven’t been to most of the establishments around here and don’t expect to call to this one any time soon. Their prices are just a little expensive.
In the reflection you can see The Muskerry Arms, Supervalu and a tourist shop.

Chocolate through the glass

Shot this one by holding a magnifying glass up above a bar of Fry’s Chocolate. I will be enjoying said bar of chocolate at lunch. Yum.
