The Penguin and the Man

Graffiti on the Crawford Art Gallery about a year ago.

There’s something weird going on with my feed here. I messed up the Feedburner redirect for a few days but fixed it and now posts from Holy Shmoly are appearing here too! I’ve disabled the redirect entirely now. Maybe that’ll fix it and my next post on HS won’t appear here.

Luigi Malone’s Clock

Behind the bar in Luigi Malone’s Restaurant in Cork are 2 large clock faces. The bar goes around in a U shape and the other face is directly behind this one.

They’re very striking, and the first thing anyone notices when they come in the front door. This is the one facing the dining area. In the dark it practically jumps out at you!

St. Anne’s looking down on traffic

The steeple of St. Anne’s Church, or “Shandon Bells” as viewed from near the Opera House in Cork. Traffic is as usual stuck at the lights close by ..

Children on the merry-go-round

Children smile and laugh as the fairground ride goes around and around! Linda and myself spent a good few minutes shooting this ride.

I combined a long exposure and flash to capture the action and hoped to get a glimpse of a child’s smile. I think I was lucky to get this one!

Thomas in his buggy

Thomas, a young boy in his buggy on Patrick’s Day this year. He’s well wrapped up against the cold.

I have no idea who he is, so hopefully his name is Thomas, and that’s not some famous brand I’m not aware of.

Kissing on the street

A young couple hug and kiss in front of the Crawford College of Art in Cork. This was shot on St. Patrick’s Day, and the crowd behind are waiting for a face painter!
