David Rowell & Co

David Rowell & Co

Do you know where Daly’s Bridge in Cork is? Sure you do. If you’ve lived in Cork you’ve probably walked across it even! After one such excursion I snapped this photo to remind me to look up the printed name above. Turns out David Rowell & Co were a company, “that fabricated wrought iron and […]

Dunnes Stores in Ruins

The skeleton of the Dunnes Stores building on Patrick’s Street lies in ruins as building work continued to refurbish it. Taken in September 2007, Brian took a shot of the building a few days ago in much better state! Places are still available for the Cork City Photowalk on July 18th! Please leave comments on […]

Cab 3181

San Francisco will be the gathering place for a large number of WordPress fans at the end of the month as they go to the 2009 San Francisco WordCamp. I won’t be there unfortunately but places are already in short supply, if not all sold out at this stage. It’s going to be a blast! […]

Gamma Radiation Survey Meter

Gamma Radiation Survey Meter

A very specialized device sits in a cupboard in the lighthouse at Mizen Head, County Cork. I have to wonder why a “Gamma Radiation Survey Meter” would be needed in a lighthouse at the southern tip of Ireland though. Not much call for radioactivity detectors in this country. Nuclear powered lighthouse anybody? PS. This is […]

flowers and peeling paint

Flowers and Peeling Paint

Flowers poke through the peeling paint of an ornate garden fence or border. I can’t decide for myself what I should call that. The name of those flowers is on the tip of my tongue too but eludes me. Blame the tiredness. Aperture ƒ/7.1 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed […]
