Symbols of the World

The Star of David, Dollar signs, the Masonic eye, Christian Cross and a symbol I (and Google Goggles) don’t recognise. All on a sticker in the Church of Hallgrimur, Reykjavik, Iceland. In the church tower there’s a door leading from the observation area into the warmth inside. This sticker is over that door. Stranger yet […]

St Mary’s Cathedral, Killarney

St Mary’s Cathedral, Killarney in the background. We walked around the town a few weeks back but I didn’t have time to get down to the Cathedral this time. Still impressive, even from this distance. I wonder if “Tim O’Brien & Sons Furniture Carpets” is online anywhere?

Cross in the Roof

Cross in the Roof

Another (and final) shot of the roof in the Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré in Quebec, Canada. I will post more from this church but this is the final shot of the main roof. Love the intricate design. Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 2.5s

Look up at the roof

The ceiling of the Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré in Quebec is quite a sight. In a low light situation you can’t get a more stable support than the floor at your feet, lucky me. A wide angle lens meant I had to run for cover lest the camera capture me in the image. The 2 second […]

Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré

Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré

The Saint Anne-de-Beaupré Basilica in Quebec is an imposing but beautiful building. It’s surrounded by flat river side countryside and low lying buildings so it really stands out. Got lots more photos from inside, hopefully to be posted over the next few days. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter […]

Killeagh Catholic Church

Killeagh Catholic Church

The town of Killeagh in County Cork has a beautiful Catholic Church at one of main street. A neat garden surrounds the building and it’s an eye catching sight for anyone passing through the town. According to a stone embedded in the church wall, it was completed in 1792. While researching this post I stumbled […]

shandon bells

Shandon Bells

The clock tower of St. Anne’s Church in Shandon is more well known as “Shandon Bells” after the bells that ring out there through out the day. We were so lucky with the weather on Saturday on our little photowalk. Wasn’t it Aidan‘s idea to head up to Shandon? Inspired! Everyone had a great time. […]

Church Steps in Castletownbere

Steps to a church in Castletownbere, Co Cork. I tried finding out more about this church but any attempt to find info on it returns this church I blogged a while back. Anyone know it’s name? Aperture ƒ/7.1 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

ye-olde-church

Ye olde church

This church in Castletownbere in West Cork looks like it may have seen better days but by the looks of the mowed grass it’s probably still in use. The Canon 40D was delivered today. I could have posted a sample picture but I didn’t have time to shoot anything interesting besides a few snaps of […]

Church Flowers

Church Flowers Flowers outside The Lough Parish Church, “Church of the Immaculate Conception”. You can read more about the church and mass times at the The Lough Parish page on the Diocese website.

Pathway to Gallarus

Pathway to Gallarus If you visit the Dingle Peninsula you must visit the Gallarus Oratory. It’s an early Christian church, possibly built in the 6th century. There is a visitor centre but don’t be fooled into paying the entrance fee. The building is a national monument and the public have a right to see it. […]

Cross in the sky

Cross in the sky I noticed this cross in the sky while walking around Dublin a few weeks ago. When I saw a church I had to make this shot and I’m quite happy with the way it came out!

Holy Trinity Church

Holy Trinity Church (print) Holy Trinity Church on Fr. Mathew Quay, pictured from just outside a side gate on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The church and attached friary are run by the Capuchins who have been in the city since at least 1637. The church above dates from early eighteenth century.
