Inside An Siopa Beag

inside an siopa beag

Step into An Siopa Beag on Oilean Chleire and you’ll see a small restaurant as well as confectionery and a till at the entrance. There are tables outside too of course, I posted a photo of them a while back. It’s one of the first businesses visitors to Cape Clear see, good location!

The difference is we’re Irish

The difference is we’re Irish

Dunnes Stores, Blackpool in Cork City. Recent Dunnes Stores adverts finish with the byline, “The difference is we’re Irish”. It stinks of desperation as everyone north of Dublin heads up to Northern Ireland to shop!

Light Streaks of City Traffic

Light Streaks of City Traffic

A long exposure shot of traffic as it heads into Cork City from the direction of Blackpool. This was very difficult to take and the original shows quite a bit of shake even though I had the camera balanced on a pedestrian traffic light button thingy. Love the streaks though.

The bicycle butterfly

the bicycle butterfly

A bicycle tied to a post on Patrick’s Street, Cork late last November.

I’m heading to London later today for my brother Donal‘s stag. Yes yes, wild weekend, etc etc. I’ll have my camera too of course and I’m staying next to King’s Cross Railway Station so I thought it would be great to go photograph the area. Unfortunately it seems that photography in railway stations and the undergroundrequires a permit. In fact, photography in the UK has become a lot riskier in recent years unfortunately:

For an individual like myself a permit would cost £30 but such a permit requires up to 2 weeks notice. I wonder if they can charge me if I use a telephoto lens from the street when someone opens the front door?
