The MAC Counter at Brown Thomas

The MAC Counter at Brown Thomas Hands up now lads. How many of you have waited around while your significant other picked out makeup or browsed the aisles in a department store? Yeah, me too. This young fella was collecting the rubbish from the drawers and in contrast to the immaculately done up girls dressed […]

Boy in his woolly hat

Boy in his woolly hat A small boy waits outside Brown Thomas with his dad while I presume his mother shops inside. I had plenty of company while I waited!

Cassettes

Cassettes I wonder if the teenager wearing this hoodie realised the irony of wearing a garment decorated with cassette images, a piece of technology he may not ever have used. The Wikipedia page has a lot more to say on the subject. This was shot outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street, Cork while I wheeled […]

Thomas in his buggy

Thomas in his buggy Thomas, a young boy in his buggy on Patrick’s Day this year. He’s well wrapped up against the cold. I have no idea who he is, so hopefully his name is Thomas, and that’s not some famous brand I’m not aware of.

Boy all alone on the street

Boy all alone It’s strange how you can be stuck in your own little world and not be aware of anything around you. All around this boy were couples, either hand in hand, walking together or even framing him in the middle of the image, but I’m struck by his solitary movement through the street. […]

On dad’s shoulders

On dad’s shoulders A boy grins with delight after the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork this year. And why wouldn’t he? He’s sitting tall over everyone else! Larry Tompkins bar is in the background. It was packed with the day’s crowd. PS. The May issue of Digital Journalist has been out for a few […]

Boy all alone

Boy all alone A little boy sits on the ground near some bikes while all around people talk and enjoy the day. This was taken at the Midleton Food and Drink Festival last year. In the last 3 weeks I’ve worked on perhaps 3 photos, but luckily I had another 50 prepared to tide me […]

Fun on a unicycle

Unicycle fun A young street performer at the Midleton Food and Drink Festival last year. Late posting today, so much to do..

Strolling on the Grand Parade

Strolling on the Grand Parade If that couple were to walk along the Grand Parade now they’d be in the middle of a busy street but back in August last year it was still a building site. Wondering what Cork looked like over 20 years ago? Take a look at these photos!

EI-128 on Inch Strand

EI-128 on Inch Strand Last September a large group of glider enthusiasts spent a weekend at Inch Strand in Co. Kerry. They were from two clubs, one in Dublin and one from further north I think. I took down their details but that scrap of paper is long lost at this stage. Conditions weren’t the […]

Watching the fish underwater in Lanzarote

Watching the fish underwater in Lanzarote A young boy watches fish swim past on a boat off the coast of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands. The boat’s staff threw food overboard for the fish while the passengers went below decks to watch from the observation windows. As it was the start of the season in […]

Happy child in the water

Happy child in the water A very happy boy runs through the incoming tide at Inch Strand, Co. Kerry. The tide came in suddenly forcing all the adults back but it brought a big smile to this youngster’s face! Originally shot in colour with the sun behind the boy, I had to brighten the image […]

The Yellow Helmet

The Yellow Helmet A father picks up the yellow helmet dropped by his son in front of the Body Shop on Patrick’s Street, Cork last Saturday. I was sitting on one of the marble blocks that pass as street furniture on our main thoroughfare. I had my camera ready to shoot when I saw them […]

Arrggghhhh!

Arrggghhhh! Young boy admiring the graffitti on a van. The van was used to transport ramps and tools for the skateboarders in Emmett Square, Cork.
