Just outside Boots he stopped in front of me, what could I do but make this image?
He was waiting for his parents to catch up but I liked the contrast between him and the busy world around him. He rejoined that world moments later.
A moment in time.
Waiting to cross a busy street in Cork.
I always think twice about photographing homeless people, but this time I was moved by the simple act of sharing a cigarette.
Two gents pictured on Winthrop Street Cork several weeks ago.
All by himself, but he was enjoying the band that were playing a few feet away!
Another sale made at the market during the St Patrick’s Festival in Cork!
More mono cycle madness on St. Patrick Street! This is near the end of his act. The crowd really enjoyed his show!

I love the second picture here. It shows just how crazy he was as he got the crowd cheering and enthusing about his act.
This man was selling scented candles on a small table in front of the Crawford Art Gallery. The sense of smell is one of our most primitive and releases memories and stirs emotions. He was doing a brisk trade.
When I saw his woolly red hat I had to make a portrait of him!
