Barry's Balloons

Barry’s Balloons

Last Sunday a “fun day” was held in the square in Blarney. I had completely forgotten about it until we got down there and there was a huge crowd there with food stalls, a bouncy castle and this inflatable slide and various races for all the kids. Shame about the weather though. Barry’s Balloons obviously […]

A man taking a break in Bishop Lucey Park, Cork. Coca Cola Ireland made headlines last week when it emerged they were going to outsource their distribution network. Unions weren’t happy of course. Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 200mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/200s

Relax in the Park

Relax in the Park

A man relaxes in Bishop Lucey Park while all around him people enjoy the festival that day. Taken during the photowalk last month. Amazing what cropping does to an image. The original was so busy and I struggled to find the image I wanted out of it but I like this. Aperture ƒ/2.2 Camera Canon […]

Laughter in the English Market

It’s not all doom and gloom for shopkeepers. These ladies were obviously having a great ol’ chat in this shop in the English Market last month. Another shot from the WW photowalk on July 18th. I seem to be getting a couple of good ones out of that day after all!

Beaty Treatment at The Body Shop

Beauty Treatment at The Body Shop

I’m still recovering after the photowalk yesterday! I took a quick look through my photos this evening and decided I’m not over the moon about any of them. A couple are ok, but there’s that little critical part of my mind saying, “crap, crap, crap, blah, ‘s ok, focus is off, boring, what were you […]

Stopped by a fag

A man stops to light his cigarette while holding a mobile phone to his ear. Who said men can’t multi-task eh?

Pedestrian Crossing

Pedestrian Crossing

The pedestrian crossing outside Eason (I always say “Eason’s”, but it really is “Eason”. Just like Porter’s is “Porter”. These newsagents are a picky bunch!) where young and old traverse the street in relative safety. Yes, it’s the current header image on this blog. If you’re reading this in the future when I may have […]
