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.

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.
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 we forget as adults.
A few weeks before Adam was born we went down to Garrettstown Beach in Co. Cork. The sun was shining, it was warm and the beach had a good number of people on it. Beautiful day!
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. He look lost in thought.
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 to the bikes. I wonder if they’re sisters?
I have to get out and take more street shots soon. I can’t remember the last time I “shot from the hip” and Cork City needs recording!

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 a little upset. Mum can be seen in the background, looks like they’re going home.
Today is the calm before the storm. I woke up to quiet. Oscar is with my family, Jacinta and Adam are still in the hospital. Tomorrow, everyone comes home probably, although Jacinta could do with an extra day.
PS. Good luck to Donal and Celine who are off to Lesotho today for 10 days. They have a long jounrey ahead of them but I know they’re going to do some great work out there, the money they’ve raised will be well spent and I’m looking forward to the photos!
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 spread the word about cancer research and the importance of their fund raising events.

Weird colours and look due to some experimenting with new plugins. Way overblown I know but I gotta have some fun sometimes!
