Cork Film Festival

Cork Film Festival starts on the 14th of October this year and will run until the 21st.

They’ve obviously spent quite a bit on advertising as these banners are visible all the way up Patrick Street.

Still, I’ve never been to a film during the festival. Others take time off work and sit in darkened theatres for the duration of the festival soaking up the celluloid culture.

Energy is trouble and useful

An ESB van passes a pole with a Rossport Shell-to-sea campaign flyer on it.

Shell want to bring oil to land at Rossport in Co. Mayo, and the ESB are massive consumers of oil, gas and coal in their electricity generation business.

Paul Street by night

In front of Tesco on Paul Street, Cork by night. This is a long exposure show I made by putting my camera on the ground and leaning the lens on my wallet.

Judging by the lighting it was probably a small aperture too. Love that effect!
