Very recently we spent almost 2 weeks in the Spanish town of El Puerto de Santa María. We stayed in a friend’s apartment and it was a really nice break away from the bad news and rush of life back in Ireland. Unfortunately we brought the rain with us but that didn’t dampen our spirits! […]

Hot Tasty Sausages

While out photowalking a hot sausages in a bun with a dab of mustard is just the thing to keep the hunger at bay. I bought the sausage in the bun being prepared above and totally enjoyed it, even if it was €4. Shot on Cornmarket Street at the Crepe Man stall during the pre-Irish […]

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 […]

Glistening Blackberries

Glistening Blackberries Blackberries glisten in the bright sun of an August afternoon in Co. Cork. I love blackberry jam, blackberry tarts, blackberry crumble. I don’t like picking the fruit, but I have many childhood memories of wandering country lanes with my family looking for the best fruit for my mother to make delicious jam. Nowadays, […]

A table at Memphis Minnies

A table at Memphis Minnies There wasn’t much left after we ate a hearty lunch in Memphis Minnies. Plates, cutlery, cups and sauces.. all eaten! Great place to eat. On the way out I made a shot of their “low fat=low flavor” advert and I just realised I spelt the name of the establishment incorrectly […]
