Out of the rain

Out of the rain

A young lady steps out of the rain on Tuckey Street, Cork last Saturday. What you don’t see in this shot is the large group of photographers behind me, sheltering under the awning outside Tribes. A torrential rain shower had just passed and thankfully was the last we saw. PS. Cork photowalkers! Upload your images […]

The Worldwide Photowalkers

41 had signed up but some couldn’t make it unfortunately. In the end, a more manageable 23 turned up. Here’s most of us as pictured afterwards in The Old Oak bar where we went for drinks and sandwiches. I had a great time today, I think everyone else did too by their reactions. The day […]

On July 18th, photographers all over the world will be holding photowalks. There’s going to be events in Belfast, Dublin and Cork that day, and who knows. Might be a few more around the country by the time that day arrives! I’ve just filled in a few details on the Cork Photowalk page on the […]

Carvery Lunch

Carvery Lunch, the fast food of “proper food” IMO. Many will be going to pubs today for their Sunday lunch and it’ll be carvery on offer. Nothing wrong with it of course, but some people are snobs about eating out and want food delivered to their table. Considering the price of carvery food, I can […]

Doneraile Park Gallery 1

Yesterday we went to Doneraile Park in Co. Cork for a photowalk. Weather was nice, if overcast and it was very warm so walking around the park was, errr, a walk in the park. Katie has already uploaded a few shots this morning! Looking forward to seeing more from the others. This is my part […]

Doneraile Photowalkers

I had a busy day today. This morning I became aware that hackers had started using WordPress blogs they had previously hacked to redirect search engine queries. So I spent this morning working on a post about that hacking issue. No wonder we were late for the photowalk this afternoon. Shown above are almost all […]

Doneraile Photowalk on June 8th

The month of June is going to be a busy and exciting one as the Midsummer Festival will be in full swing! To avoid clashes with any other event I think it’s better if the photowalk in Doneraile, Co. Cork be on Sunday June 8th before it starts at all. Where: Doneraile Park, Co. Cork. […]

The Lough Daffodils

The Lough Daffodils We walked around The Lough and wandered over to the daffodils growing by the footpath at one of the lake. That’s Sean Murphy in the background as he preps some of his equipment to take a shot. Probably my last photo from the Lough Photowalk!

Swans on The Lough

Swans on The Lough Swans swim past on The Lough in Cork City. This was one of the first photos I took at the recent photowalk there. Despite the clear blue sky and lovely light it was quite cold with a biting wind!

Three’s a crowd

Three’s a crowd Some of the swans at the Lough a few weeks ago during the photo walk. Got a few more shots from that session to post!
