I’m Still Standing

Im Still Standing

It’s wonderful how some of the old buildings in Cork are preserved while all around them their neighbours are demolished and shiny new edifices rise. This one is of course on Emmett Place.

Water flows down to the beach at Fountainstown, bubbling as it goes over rocks and seaweed.

PS. I’ve reduced the cost of all prints by about $50 to $80 for the largest size framed prints. Most of the cost goes towards manufacturing and my markup is only 20% on all prints. Check ’em out in my gallery and of course if a photo on the site takes your interest contact me and let me know!

Montmorency Falls in Quebec, as seen from the top of the nearby hill. Lots of steps to walk up!

PS. In unrelated news, I received the following email from Siobhán Duggan:

Hi Donncha,
while doing some research on the lough recently I came across your blog regarding a Lough Photography day you organised last year. You may be aware of the diminishing population of wildlife in the Lough over the past few months. I am part of a voluntary organisation called JCI Cork (junior chamber international) and as a group we have decided to fundraise for the Lough by holding a table quiz in the Hawthorn Bar near the Lough. I have attached a flyer that you might please send to some of your colleagues that may be interested in supporting the Lough by taking a table on the night (Friday November 6th). Business in the area have been very supportive by giving prizes for the raffle and for the winners on the night so it should be a great night as well as raising money for a much loved amenity,

Kind Regards,

Email them at cork @jci-ireland.org (remove the space before the @) if you’re interested in going. A table of 4 costs 40 Euro. I don’t think I’ll be going (baby sitters, etc to organise) but it should be a good night!
