Red Dragon

Red Dragon A Welsh flag pictured inside a window. This is just down the road from St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral in Cork and is probably student accommodation because it’s close to UCC too.

Abandoned Train Station

Abandoned Train Station In Killeagh, East Cork, there’s an abandoned train station from I don’t know how long ago. According to Wikidepia it’s unlikely that the station will be restored because there isn’t enough demand. The Cork-Midleton line will however open by 2008. While researching this post I found out that the town of Killeagh […]

The changing face of Cork City

The changing face of Cork City O’Flynn Butchers used to operate from this shop until very recently. With the influx of immigrants into Ireland, North Main Street has become a lot more interesting with shops dedicated to the cuisine of other cultures!

Cork St Patrick’s Festival Market

Cork St Patrick’s Festival Market One side of Academy Street was taken up by a long line of stalls populated by an international host of sellers! There were biscuits and cakes from Brittany, soaps and wooden toys from France, clothes and trinkets from Peru and lots more. I took a few shots of this scene […]

Fixing up the Apple Store

Fixing up the Apple Store Workers pictured in the Apple Store Magnificent Mile, Chicago. The top of the image is the front and side of the store. This is the store in which I was asked not take photos in 2003!

Small Figures

Small Figures Small figures run for cover to get out of the downpour. You’ll be glad to hear that this is the last of my shots from this square for the time being! Pictures of the day: mute, Eric, Iced Coffee, nowords, Gareth Marlow, Learning to see, Mystery Me

Sad Face?

Sad Face? Second of the Crown Fountains in Millenium Park, Chicago. The tent in the background covered The Bean and wasn’t due to be removed for a few weeks.

Crown Fountain in Millenium Park Chicago

Crown Fountainin Millenium Park Chicago This is one of the Crown Fountains in Millennium Park, Chicago. The red glow in this photo is from that large image! It’s actually a video, the person pictured smiles and changes expression every few seconds, and the face changes on a regular basis. I didn’t know this was here […]

Fade to white

Fade to white A building on South Wabash, Chicago. I was on my way to Central Camera and just loved the leading lines when I looked up! I debated with myself about removing the building on the right but left it in for context. Wabash runs parallel with State Street but is much narrower and […]

From Madison to Sears

From Madison to Sears I worked in the heart of the financial district of Chicago in the summer of 2003. Each morning I took the brown line of the L to Washington/Wells and walked the two blocks to the building where I worked. This is the view only a few blocks away. You can see […]

Queen’s Old Castle

Queen’s Old Castle After yesterday’s shot I decided to take a photo of the Virgin Megastore which now occupies the site of the old Queen’s Old Castle Shopping Center. Off to the left is the entrance to Argos. No misleading titles today! Shot was taken with the camera lying on the ground and I can […]

Something blue

Something blue Cork is a city of contradictions. The old mixed with the new. Modern office blocks sit alongside grand old limestone buildings. In other parts of the city it’s harder to tell which is which. New apartment blocks sit abused and unmaintained next to the older parts of the city which look nicer and […]
