Jacob’s Bar

Jacob’s Bar in Baltimore, Co Cork. We never drank there but it looked busy and inviting. Evening was too cold to stay outside though.

Eccles Hotel

eccles hotel

Eccles Hotel on the outskirts of Glengarriff in Co Cork is an imposing hotel from the outside. I never went in so I don’t know what it’s like inside. My wife Jacinta checked out the menu while I stayed in the car with the baby and got the camera out of course!

It’s a beautiful building, in nice surroundings. Water laps against the road behind me as far as I remember and it’s very peaceful (in the off season, I’m sure the carpark is full in the summer!)

PS. Just wanted to point out Fake Chuck Westfall. A blog satirising a senior Canon exec. Canon didn’t like it and tried to have it taken down. Thankfully they didn’t succeed. My boss Toni Schneider responded to Canon’s request and you can see the response above.
In fact Fake Chuck got a HUGE traffic boost from all the attention. Should have just ignored it!

Steps to a church in Castletownbere, Co Cork.

I tried finding out more about this church but any attempt to find info on it returns this church I blogged a while back. Anyone know it’s name?

The Chicago Theatre

The Chicago Theatre on State Street in the city of the same name. The sign in front is hard to miss but I’ve never been in there. Maybe next time I visit Chicago. More info on the theatre’s history page. Love that Netscape favicon!

This was shot in 2005 but I know I have shot the same scene a number of times.

Shih tzu’s Eyes

Our shih tzu Oscar looks up at me as I photograph him on Christmas Day 2007. He must have wondered when he was getting his Christmas dinner! (Later, when baby was gone to bed!)

Moving from Chicago to Washington

Moving from Chicago to Washington

Barack Obama’s family probably had some help from America’s Secret Service when they moved from Chicago to Washington but for the rest of us, that journey would be a lot more mundane and would involve the services of a company like Hollander.

Photographed somewhere in Chicago in May 2005.
