This is the private road to the estate on which Blarney Castle sits.
As I was walking about one late winter afternoon I spotted the lovely light shining through the trees and just had to take a snap!
The Christmas rush is over. Sales have been bad for retailers as people suddenly realised, “Oh! The mortgage has to be paid!”
Anyway, I’m half-hoping I’ll be able to pick up a Nintendo Wii somewhere. I don’t suppose they’ll be on sale will they?
I celebrate 10 years online this year! Go me!
Check out Donal’s new photoblog, Pana Vision!
Cranes still rise into the air, towering over everything else, even the Elysian Tower pictured on the right of this image.
The Irish economy may be slowing down but there’s still plenty of life in the old dog yet!
Happy new year! May 2008 be even better than 2007!
The final day of the year 2007. It’s cloudy and misty and rain is in the air. Very mild for this time of year actually.
2007 was a mixed bag for many people. It was a year of extremes – joy and sadness in equal measures, but life changing for myself and my wife as our son Adam was born into the world this year.
This sunset was shot at Garrettstown Beach a few weeks ago. Dedicated to the memory of Gerry who visited that beach with us before she passed away.
A strange multi-coloured bus waiting at the lights in downtown San Francisco last summer.
Yes, those are horns on the roof. Does anyone know anything about it? A search for “EFT 922”, it’s registration plate, turns up nothing useful.
A long five second exposure at f/22 captured cars stuck on Patrick Street about a month ago.
They’ve done some fabulous work on the pavements of Cork’s main thoroughfare but it hasn’t made a jot of difference to vehicular traffic, except to make it more dangerous to pedestrians as they saunter across junctions blissfully unaware of the cars bearing down on them ..
Light trails from passing cars fill the frame with a golden glow on the corner of The Grand Parade and Washington Street, Cork.
Long exposure shot made possible by the traffic light switch on which I rested my camera!
“We had no idea how poorly he would play,” continued the Samsung spokesperson. “Not just Ronan, but the whole team. In hindsight the ‘I’m converted’ caption is quite embarrassing because his conversion record in the World Cup was shite. We’re quite disappointed with Ronan, not only did he let himself and the country down, but he let us, a multi-billion dollar company, down as well.”
Christmas Baubles hang in Porter’s newsagent, Cork. Christmas decoration is everywhere but reflective surfaces present an opportunity to take a self portrait. Yes, that’s me reflected! 🙂
Hope you had a great Christmas Day. We went travelling and I must say it was the best Christmas Day in a long time. I think I must invest in a WII next year…
