Eating or Politics?

Eating or Politics? Sometimes it’s the little things in life that concern us more than the big picture. I’m sure I heard about Sean Garland on the news but for the life of me, I can’t remember when. There’s a lot more information on him on seangarland.org and Wikipedia.

Faces in the crowd

Faces in the crowd This is not just a trick of the zoom lens. The crowds in town on Saturday were like those around Christmas. Christmas lights are already up, but not lit, and there was an urgent air about the place. This is the second shot of this scene and it turned out much […]

Cork Boi!
