Denis MacSweeney

One of the few photography shops left in Cork City center, Denis MacSweeney’s shop in Merchant’s Quay is a simple photo development outfit. O’Leary’s Camera World and MacSweeney’s on Oliver Plunkett St. will sell you cameras and all sorts of other photography bits. Unfortunately both shops were out of 77mm filters the last few times I called in.

Sun peaking out in SF

The sun is hidden by a tall building in San Francisco while mother and daughter wait for the lights to change.

Energy is trouble and useful

An ESB van passes a pole with a Rossport Shell-to-sea campaign flyer on it.

Shell want to bring oil to land at Rossport in Co. Mayo, and the ESB are massive consumers of oil, gas and coal in their electricity generation business.

Gone shopping at Adams Kids

Mom and daughter hurry past on Panna after shopping in Adams Kids.

In the background is the old Dunnes Stores which has been pulled down leaving the front facing of the building and a wide swath of destruction and deconstruction behind it extending to Emmet Place.

PS. Thanks to Gamma for mentioning the exhibition in Mallow too. All links and publicity are greatly appreciated!

Cork flies the rebel flag

Red and white flags flew all over Cork City today and for the past week in anticipation of the All Ireland Football Final between Cork and Kerry.

Unfortunately Kerry won and decisively so too as I heard from my father-in-law Frank who filled me in on all the gory details!
