The face painting girl This young lady was painting the faces of kids at the Midleton Food and Drink Festival when I took this photo. She was really enjoying herself as were the kids!
Strolling on the Grand Parade If that couple were to walk along the Grand Parade now they’d be in the middle of a busy street but back in August last year it was still a building site. Wondering what Cork looked like over 20 years ago? Take a look at these photos!
Scared Child A girl looked up at me from her buggy as I took her photo with the wide angle lens of my camera. This was taken just after the St. Patrick’s Day Parade this year and the place was black with people, especially outside the The Larry Tompkins pub so no wonder she was […]
Silhouettes in the club Some of the audience who gathered to take part in the Stanley Super 800 video of Gatecrashing silhouetted against the bright lights around the band’s equipment.

Looks like her mother was busy shopping in Penney’s and elsewhere so I’m sure she’ll look forward to getting home! I like this: This Flight Tonight, and make sure you download the linked […]
Lady on the phone Sometimes you’ll take a photo and think it’s not great. Occasionally you’ll spot a photo within the photo. I was attempting to photograph two lads walking down the street but when I saw the resulting image they were blurred by motion and out of focus. A closer look later showed this […]
