David Rowell & Co

Do you know where Daly’s Bridge in Cork is? Sure you do. If you’ve lived in Cork you’ve probably walked across it even! After one such excursion I snapped this photo to remind me to look up the printed name above. Turns out David Rowell & Co were a company, “that fabricated wrought iron and […]

Oscar, our Shih Tzu, on the Shaky Bridge just outside Fitzgerald’s Park in Cork. I think he prefers solid ground! Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/60s

Dunnes Stores in Ruins

Dunnes Stores in Ruins

The skeleton of the Dunnes Stores building on Patrick’s Street lies in ruins as building work continued to refurbish it. Taken in September 2007, Brian took a shot of the building a few days ago in much better state! Places are still available for the Cork City Photowalk on July 18th! Please leave comments on […]

Cab 3181

San Francisco will be the gathering place for a large number of WordPress fans at the end of the month as they go to the 2009 San Francisco WordCamp. I won’t be there unfortunately but places are already in short supply, if not all sold out at this stage. It’s going to be a blast! […]

nature invades

Nature invades our spaces

Nature starts to reclaim the works of man as soon as he turns his back. It’s inevitable as this photo of the steps up to a house in Sunday’s Well shows. My own garden is the picture of neat and tidy lawn without a single blade of grass out of place. I wish! Aperture ƒ/5.6 […]

Bridge to Mizen Head

One Bridge to Mizen Head

The bridge to Mizen Head Lighthouse is a landmark itself, photographed many times over the years. I have a few more shots of this bridge to share with you in the coming weeks. Stay tuned! We saw Honeymoon Cabaret perform their unique brand of street theatre in Douglas this afternoon and very enjoyable it was […]

Slate in Black and White

Slate in Black and White

The roof of a house on Sunday’s Well from behind the house. The building in the background is the new one being built on the Western Road, where the greyhound track used to be. Taken shortly after the wedding car shot a few days ago. I just love the texture of the slate roof. When […]

Sacred to the Memory

Sacred to the Memory

Death is a sad but inevitable part of life. A gravestone marks the earthly remains of the departed with a brief message recording their passing with, if space permits, a note from the grieving family. All that to sum up the life and times of a person. Seems very inadequate. In the future of course […]

Clancy’s Youghal

Clancy’s Bar and Restaurant in Youghal has apparently been closed for quite some time. I never knew the place but my wife was surprised and disappointed to see the For Sale signs outside. I didn’t even notice the people walking along the road until I looked at the photo on my monitor! Aperture ƒ/9 Camera […]
