The bicycle butterfly

A bicycle tied to a post on Patrick’s Street, Cork late last November. I’m heading to London later today for my brother Donal‘s stag. Yes yes, wild weekend, etc etc. I’ll have my camera too of course and I’m staying next to King’s Cross Railway Station so I thought it would be great to go […]

Tour of Ireland

The Tour of Ireland bicycle race passed through Blarney on it’s way to Cork City this afternoon. There was a sprint to the finish line in front of the local Catholic church before the cyclists made their way down the dual carriageway to Cork and up Patrick’s Hill, twice! I was there ready to shoot […]

The Bike at the Library

The Bike at the Library Cork City Library on the Grand Parade used to have railings in front for locking up your bike. Those railings disappeared a few months ago but people still leave their bikes there. The library itself will soon be the subject of a major facelift as a developer expands it into […]

2 bikes in Daunt Square

Mallow Camera Club did really well yesterday at the SACC competition! The club won the event outright and also […]

Bike Lane

Bike Lane Riding a bike anywhere on today’s streets is almost a suicidal pursuit but bike lanes help. Here a bus drove past as I took this shot in an urban tunnel in downtown San Francisco.

Have bike, will travel

Have bike, will travel As you can imagine, I was quite tired by the time I got to San Francisco! Picture above was taken just down from my Bird flying by photo. I know there are lots of awkward lines in this shot but the line of the Golden Gate Bridge is just about horizontal. […]

Is it Bank of Scotland(Ireland) or Halifax?

Is it Bank of Scotland(Ireland) or Halifax? Bank of Scotland(Ireland) are changing their unwieldy name to the much shorter “Halifax”. The bank is a major player in the UK market, but the name change could yet backfire because Halifax isn’t very well known in Ireland. I presume a slick marketing campaign will take care of […]
