Why are you photographing that?

Why are you photographing that? It’s a bike on the ground, why are you photographing it? That’s what a group of girls asked me as I crouched down next to this bike. I got the shot though!

Bus stop on Mardyke Parade

Bus stop on Mardyke Parade The bus stop on the Mardyke Parade outside the old Erinville Hospital is on a bus lane, just outside a school. Every single school morning the bus lane is jammed with cars dropping children off.

The Yellow Mini

Finbarr House, Cork

Finbarr House, Cork Finbarr House is situated right next to University College Cork (UCC) on the Western Road. What’s strange is that it is a rundown building in the perfect location for renting to students: right in front of the University. Who knew there was an Irish property owner who didn’t want to make a […]

California Sunset

California Sunset On the way to the Automattic beach houses last night we drove along the famous road that featured in Basic Instinct. I opened the window on Toni’s car and took a few photos of the sunset. I hoped for it to happen, but I was very lucky that the sun was blocked out […]

Cute little dog

Cute little dog A King Charles Spaniel with his owner in Paul Street, Cork a few months ago. I don’t like seeing dogs in the city because it’s so stressful for them but it was really quiet. Little fella looks worried though doesn’t he?

The dog and his bone

A rainy day on the street

Check my Flickr stream for tomorrow’s pic I couldn’t run my future posting script because Flickr changed their […]

Blitz in Cork

Blitz in Cork A modified car sits parked in front of the Carroll’s Quay car park in Cork. The distinctive logo on the wing reminds me of the Transformers. Maybe the driver is a fan?

The smiling baby

The smiling baby My son Adam this afternoon with Tweety Bird. He’s all cheerful and smiling for the camera! I will so miss him and Jacinta when I’m away in San Francisco!

The Erinville Maternity Hospital, Cork

The Erinville Maternity Hospital, Cork The Erinville Hospital in Cork is one of the old maternity hospitals that were shutdown earlier this year and facilities moved to the Cork University Maternity Hospital.

Gateway to old homes

Gateway to old homes If you walk along the Mardyke in Cork you’re sure to have spotted this green area nestled in off the main road. Does anyone know anything about it? PS. Here is where this is. Google Maps don’t have it on their map, but you can make out the green area in […]

Inside the Cork University Maternity Hospital

Inside the Cork University Maternity Hospital The (still) new Cork University Maternity Hospital or CUMH is shaped like a triangle with a central area that will eventually be planted with grass, flowers and vegetation. For now it’s boring bland grey. To the right and left you can see balconies. The one of the right adjoins […]
