Rainbow Umbrella

A child opens a rainbow coloured umbrella outside Cork City Library last Saturday. Rain threatened most of the day so it was a good idea to have an umbrella with you, just in case. Phil is blogging the photos he took, and posted about his trip to Cork too. Aperture ƒ/3.5 Camera Canon EOS 20D […]

Thomas in his buggy

Thomas in his buggy Thomas, a young boy in his buggy on Patrick’s Day this year. He’s well wrapped up against the cold. I have no idea who he is, so hopefully his name is Thomas, and that’s not some famous brand I’m not aware of.

A child playing in the sand

A child playing in the sand This little girl was playing in the sand on the beach as we walked past. Plenty of toys about, but I don’t think she had built a sand castle yet. It’s lovely to see children playing in the sand. It’s an age of innocence and (sometimes) simple joy that […]

Boy all alone on the street

Boy all alone It’s strange how you can be stuck in your own little world and not be aware of anything around you. All around this boy were couples, either hand in hand, walking together or even framing him in the middle of the image, but I’m struck by his solitary movement through the street. […]

2 bikes in Daunt Square

2 bikes in Daunt Square His and hers bikes locked up against a pole in Daunt Square, Cork last February. Looking at this with fresh eyes, I was lucky to catch the people behind the bikes without at least one of them standing behind the pole! I love the expressions of the two girls closest […]

Scared Child

Scared Child A girl looked up at me from her buggy as I took her photo with the wide angle lens of my camera. This was taken just after the St. Patrick’s Day Parade this year and the place was black with people, especially outside the The Larry Tompkins pub so no wonder she was […]

Drag the child shopping

Drag the child shopping A mother drags her reluctant offspring up the main street in Killarney in early February. She was in a hurry but he didn’t want to be rushed. Mom won the battle! PS. today is Daffodil Day, I’ve made a theme header you can use on your blog if you want to […]

The eyes in the bus

The eyes in the bus A child looking out the back window of a bus. Weird colours and look due to some experimenting with new plugins. Way overblown I know but I gotta have some fun sometimes!

King of my world

King of my world A child is carried atop his parent’s shoulders on St. Patrick’s Street, Cork a few weeks ago. I really like this shot, for what reason, I’m not sure. Maybe it’s the brightness and flowery design of the clothing worn by parent and child compared to the passers by. I’m sure both […]

Happy child in the water

Happy child in the water A very happy boy runs through the incoming tide at Inch Strand, Co. Kerry. The tide came in suddenly forcing all the adults back but it brought a big smile to this youngster’s face! Originally shot in colour with the sun behind the boy, I had to brighten the image […]

Handing it over

Handing it over I expect there are three generations of one family here: grandmother, mother and child. A moment in time captured on Paul Street, Cork.

I hate shopping

I hate shopping A child with a very bored expression in the middle of Christmas shopping!
