Director’s Cut

Director's Cut

First of all Virgin Megastore was sold off to Zavvi and shortly afterwards they had a liquidation sale and went under. Now Director’s Cut are in there and it’s a depressing store. There’s no piped music to liven the dead atmosphere, oh dear!

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 had a hand in supplying some of the entertainment and looked like a lot of fun!

Ireland Loves Coca Cola

Ireland Loves Coca Cola

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.

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.

Laughter in the English Market

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!

The 8A Bus

The 8A Bus

A man gets on the 8A bus to Curraheen on Patrick Street, Cork last Saturday.

This was on the way to the photowalk, walking up the street with Chris to where Will had double parked because he was driving home again. Chris had dropped his camera in the car when he got out!
