One Eye Oscar

One Eye Oscar!

Shih Tzu dogs need a lot of grooming and Oscar is no exception. This is him in the snow on Christmas Day last year. Good thing he had all that fur as it was freezing! Aperture ƒ/10 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 88mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/320s

A ship tied up at the quay in Kinsale, Co. Cork last year. The vessel was mostly deserted but we saw revellers boarding it regularly, walking around the deck and then off again! Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1.3s

A Cup

A Cup among the the rocks

The smooth uniform texture of a cup contrasted with the rough and weathered stones of a wall on Cape Clear Island. Somewhere near where I took the previous shot I saw this cup at the side of the road and was struck by the oddness of it’s placement. Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal […]

Church is this direction. A sign points towards the Catholic church on Cape Clear Island, off the coast of Co Cork, Ireland. After taking photos with the “Retro Camera” app on my phone in square format I decided I’d try the same with my DSLR photos. I copied my “copyright frame” script (for the GIMP) […]

Weird World

Weird World

Sometimes your world is just a little off kilter and not completely level. Photo of St. Patrick’s Street, Cork taken back in January this year.

Football on the beach

3 boys playing with a football on Garretstown Beach. The tide was coming in and I watched them kick the ball out into the water. The day was freezing though with a strong offshore wind. Brrrr. Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 144mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

View on Camden Quay

View on Camden Quay

Camden Quay in Cork City with the north side of the City behind it. St. Anne’s (or Shandon Bells) and the Catholic North Cathedral in the background. Loved the light when I saw this scene. The setting sun cast shadows on the buildings and reflected off the church steeples. Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 40D […]

Abandoned Interior

Abandoned Interior

The interior of a cottage at the picturesque Brandon Creek on Slea Head, County Kerry. Outside there’s a planning permission notice, dated August 2008 and written in Irish. I presume the owner is no longer in a hurry to develop his property. All he wanted to do was replace the roof and add an extension. […]
