lisbon-treaty-2

Lisbon Treaty Referendum 2

So, it’s confirmed. The Irish didn’t vote the way the Government or the EU wanted and we have to vote again. I wonder if there will be a third referendum if we dare to vote No again? Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 72mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/160s

Doorstep

A doorstep next to the Bodega on Cornmarket Street Cork. Does anyone remember what building was here? It’s always been empty as long as I remember! Aperture ƒ/3.5 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 18mm ISO 200 Shutter speed 1/640s

No Refunds on Costumes

No Refunds on Costumes

No refunds on costumes in this shop on North Main Street. Silly them, of course there are refunds if the product turns out to be faulty. Signs like those don’t change your consumer rights. I hate posting the daily photo last thing at night. zzzz Aperture ƒ/4.5 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 11mm ISO […]

so many people pass me by

Footsteps in the sand speak of many people passing this way. Shot at Garrettstown Beach in October 2006. A very different shot to my previous Footprints in the sand. Remember a few weeks ago I explained how I backed up my photos? Good thing I have backups as my first external drive has possibly died. […]

windswept-daisies

Windswept Daisies

Daisies cling to the sparse earth at the water’s edge in Fountainstown, Co Cork. This was taken just a few metres from my previous Fountainstown picture and was mocking me for over 2 years, sitting in my “Work in Progress” folder, defying my attempts to capture the feeling of that cold October day in 2006.

The tide is out at Fountainstown

The tide was out on this evening when we visited Fountainstown in Co Cork in 2006. This photo of a boat was taken across those mud flats on a later visit so there’s plenty of opportunity for photographers there. Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 200 Shutter speed 1/125s

Sunset Glow at Doneraile Park

The setting sun cast a beautiful glow on the trees near Doneraile House in Doneraile Park in November 2006. That was a cold day, wind blew through us despite the warm coats we wore. My wife was pregnant at the time and we were in the park with her sister Gerry so it’s a memorable […]

reflections-on-kinsale

Reflections on Kinsale

If you walk along the quay in Kinsale, Co Cork and glance across the harbour you’ll see the houses above. I’ve always wondered who lives over there and what do they think of the busy tourist town across the water. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 59mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/80s

Beamish

Beamish

When you come to Ireland you go looking for a Guinness don’t you? Well, if you’re in Cork, you must try local stouts, Beamish or Murphy’s. I’m not a big fan of any of them but the Cork stouts are sweeter than Guinness, and nicer IMO. Signs in Blackpool, Cork. Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS […]

the-echo-seller

The Echo Seller

The Evening Echo seller on Patrick’s Street, Cork, has been selling the evening paper for longer than I care to remember. I took a shot of him back in 2005 and he’s still there, braving wet and cold and every other sort of weather. PS. shot on Saturday while on a hastily organised photowalk with […]
