EI-128 at rest on the beach

Exit

This way to the EXIT. This is a sign in Biosphere 2 in Arizona. Can you imagine how enticing it would be to get out of a building after spending a year inside there? Declan from O’Learys rang this morning. Good news. He got on to the boss at the Sigma repair company who told […]

A Rainbow over Cobh

A rainbow brightens up the dark clouds threatening Cobh in Co. Cork in late 2006. You can see Cobh Cathedral in the background, and I’d swear the boats in the foreground are still there in the same position all these years later ..

The legacy of Bertie Ahern

Bertie Ahern, who recently announced his resignation as Taoiseach or Prime Minister of Ireland was well known for opening all sorts of events and buildings. Plaques with his name dot the country. PS. This image is now hosted on my own server where I have some referrer checks. If you don’t see it in your […]

Sheep in a Kerry field

Sheep in a Kerry field Wooah, digging into the archives here. This was shot in September 2006 while on holiday in Dingle. It’s a field on Slea Head at the tip of the Dingle Peninsula. It’s hard to see in the web version but I love the brooding clouds in the large image!

Reflections of the city

Reflections of the city Cork City Hall and the urban lighting on both sides of the River Lee are reflected in the water at night. I took this back in October 2006 when the Elysian hadn’t reached it’s glorious present day height. I venture to say that a photo of this scene now would feature […]

Conor Pass Hills and Clouds

Conor Pass Hills and Clouds This image broke my heart. I spent a long time trying to get the darkened sky layer and the brightened ground layer to merge nicely but I’m still not happy with it. This small web version looks almost ok but I can still see the offending bits that are wrong.

How very phallic of you

How very phallic of you A desert plant growing near the ranch we stayed at in Arizona. I only thought of the title after seeing this image in b/w, but err, it suits doesn’t it?

An Chead Bhailiu Eile

An Chead Bhailiu Eile A very old looking post box on South Main Street, Cork stands next to the brewery there. “An Chead Bhailiu Eile” and “Next Collection” are stamped just above the letter box, and both phrases are the same in Irish and English. Photos from Snapfish.ie were delivered today. Quality is quite good, […]

Little girl goes shopping

Little girl goes shopping A young girl on Patrick’s Street pushes her buggy with her mothercare bag. See the face she’s making? She means business!

Call of the evening

Call of the evening A bird atop the light outside my house calls into the glowing evening sky heralding the end of 2007. After walking Oscar I had to grab my camera and shoot the beautiful evening sky. The background was this colour, there’s no trickery here except a little vignetting and sharpening.

Trees on the Marina

Trees on the Marina The trees along the Marina in Blackrock, Cork are bare at the this time of year but the sun shone today as if it was the height of Summer. It was lovely, even with the biting wind. Shot from the grounds of Pairc Ui Chaoimh (no relation!) while out walking with […]

Scart Road

Scart Road Scart Road, or Bothar na Scairte in Bantry, Co. Cork. When you leave the wide open area near the harbour in Bantry you come across really steep hills to the east. I happened to walk that way pushing a buggy so I had to stop and catch my breath here before heading on […]
