The doorway of an abandoned cafe on Oliver Plunkett Street. This one is next to The Old Oak and I’m sure I remember it open once, but it always seems to be closed down.

Shot during the pre-iba09 photowalk a few weeks ago.

The banks of the Lee

The banks of the Lee

The River Lee runs through Cork City along two channels with an island in the middle. That island is where the City Center is and provides for plenty of opportunities shooting the river 🙂

Towering over the Little People

towering over the little people

Wherever you look on the north side of Cork City you’re bound to see a massive tower bristling with antennas. It’s an Eircom building AFAIK but I’ve never stopped outside it to look so it could be the secret offices of PROC for all I know! 🙂

Shot from Shandon Bells last Saturday.

Shandon Bells

shandon bells

The clock tower of St. Anne’s Church in Shandon is more well known as “Shandon Bells” after the bells that ring out there through out the day.

We were so lucky with the weather on Saturday on our little photowalk. Wasn’t it Aidan‘s idea to head up to Shandon? Inspired! Everyone had a great time. Next photowalk we’re heading up there again!
