San Francisco will be the gathering place for a large number of WordPress fans at the end of the month as they go to the 2009 San Francisco WordCamp. I won’t be there unfortunately but places are already in short supply, if not all sold out at this stage. It’s going to be a blast!

Here’s a shot I took in 2007 from outside our hotel near Union Square. Love the reflection of the building in the bonnet of the car and glad I got those tourists too!

One Bridge to Mizen Head

Bridge to Mizen Head

The bridge to Mizen Head Lighthouse is a landmark itself, photographed many times over the years. I have a few more shots of this bridge to share with you in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

We saw Honeymoon Cabaret perform their unique brand of street theatre in Douglas this afternoon and very enjoyable it was too! Hopefully I’ll post a photo or two tomorrow. I went a bit mad with the camera and it’s hard to choose just one image!

Gamma Radiation Survey Meter

Gamma Radiation Survey Meter

A very specialized device sits in a cupboard in the lighthouse at Mizen Head, County Cork.

I have to wonder why a “Gamma Radiation Survey Meter” would be needed in a lighthouse at the southern tip of Ireland though. Not much call for radioactivity detectors in this country.

Nuclear powered lighthouse anybody?

PS. This is a slightly tinted b/w image. Many of the images in B/W Magazine seem to be tinted which was the inspiration for doing this.

Kilkee Beach

Kilkee Beach in County Clare is a beautiful stretch of sand going on forever and ever. Well, seems like it, it’s a massively long beach and on the day we accidentally discovered it the sun was beating down on us. Hooray!

I have no idea what RMA stands for. That little rock was sitting next to the shell where I found it.
