Dunnes Stores for Better Value

Dunnes Stores for Better Value The old Dunnes Stores on Patrick’s Street is now only a shadow of it’s former self. All that remains of the building is the front facade and a small portion of the side walls. Construction work on the Paul Street development has levelled most of the back buildings in a […]

The crow stops here

The crow stops here A crow atop a STOP sign on The Grand Parade, Cork. Shot using a fairly high ISO but bicubic resizing smudges the noise away!

Trust on the street

Trust on the street Have you ever thought about how you’re manipulated by the brands? Trust Boots.

Parked Motorbikes

Parked Motorbikes Two motorbikes parked on the South Mall attracted my attention especially as a strong sun reflected off the clean chrome. Yes, I know there’s a weird diagonal, yes it is distracting. Yes, it is intentional. Enjoy!

St. Anne’s Church Tower

St. Anne’s Church The Shandon bell tower of St. Anne’s Church is one of the most recognisable sights around Cork. Here it is viewed from the end of Academy Street by Patrick’s Street.

Through the long grass

Through the long grass Hard wind worn grass grows by the beach at Wine Strand in Co. Kerry. I think this is perfect in black and white. The blue sky was amazing but the light and shadow of the grass stands out against the uniform background. I shot my first sports stuff in ages yesterday. […]

Rain blows over Slea Head

Rain blows over Slea Head Rain descended on us moments after I took this shot as it sped across the bay and over Slea Head from the south! This was taken above Couminole Beach.

Yellow Walking Man

Yellow Walking Man An arrow points the way for walkers near Wine Strand on the Dingle Peninsula. Across the water is Ballydavid or Baile na nGall. Beautiful clear skies, lovely calm water. Ideal weather.

Dingle

Dingle The town of Dingle, or “An Daingean” as it’s officially known as now. The name change has upset many local people who mourn the loss of their identity and fear that the brand recognition of the name Dingle will be lost on (mostly American) tourists who flock here through out the summer. The 2005 […]

The waves at Couminole

The waves at Couminole Waves about to crash down on the nearby rocks at Couminole Beach on Slea Head, Co. Kerry. Originally this was in colour but it lacked punch. Converting it to black and white and slightly overexposing the blue channel created this dramatic scene.

Shadows of a blue sky

Shadows of a blue sky Shadows from unseen clouds leave their mark on the ground telling of their passage through the heavens. Shot on Wine Strand, Co. Kerry, looking across the bay.

Sunlit Grassy Slopes

Sunlit Grassy Slopes Tough grass that’s lovely and springy to walk on edge to the horizon where a cloud floats serenely in the blue sky. Life is good! This is taken close to this photo of the same slope but the mood is completely different.

Laneway fence

Laneway fence An old fence follows the road off into the distance at Wine Strand in the Dingle Peninsular, Co. Kerry. Lines, lines everywhere, I love lines!

Windswept grass and fence

Windswept grass and fence The tough grass by a beach in Kerry grows thick on this hill, bounded by a wire fence to keep curious people like myself at bay! This is an experiment for me. I thought the b/w treatment would work well as the image is full of texture, lines and shadow. What […]

The Irish Tricolour

The Irish Tricolour The Irish Flag, or Tricolour hangs outside the Muskerry Arms Pub in Blarney. More here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Ireland The beautiful weather recently provided a perfect opportunity to shoot outside. Yay!
