The Truman House

The Truman House

The Truman Show was filmed in the town of Seaside in Florida way back in 1998. Feeling old now? This is the house where they filmed interior shots of Truman’s home. You’ll recognise scenes from the film if you visit the town, but trees and bushes are a bit more overgrown now. Anyway, Automattic went […]

Frosty morning in Blarney

Frosty morning in Blarney

Another frosty morning in Blarney, County Cork. I’m glad I work from home. The roads are deadly now. Snow fell in Dublin yesterday and the city practically came to a stand still. It hasn’t snowed in Blarney yet but the roads have been bad. We had a Christmas Day adventure when the car didn’t make […]

Derelict and red brick

Derelict and red brick

A long unused, derelict and run down red brick building on the Old Youghal Road. This was shot last September, first time I’d been up around this area in a few years. Nothing much had changed in all those years. Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 162mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/640s

Storm Clouds over Spanish Point

Storm clouds over Spanish Point

A large and ominous storm cloud blew over Spanish Point in County Clare while we visited the beach there. Thankfully it only rained a tiny bit and didn’t spoil our time in the sand and on the rocks! Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/200s

Reflections on Kinsale

If you walk along the quay in Kinsale, Co Cork and glance across the harbour you’ll see the houses above. I’ve always wondered who lives over there and what do they think of the busy tourist town across the water. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 59mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/80s

Public Seating

Public Seating

Plastic seats outside a house, near yesterday’s home I think. We went for a walk this evening by the reservoir in Inniscarra and I got some nice shots of my family and of the setting sun over the water. Unfortunately when I got home a number of shots were corrupted. I’m not sure why or […]

My Home from Home

What do you do when you get home from holiday? Put a clamp on the wheels of your caravan! I could make a joke about cleaning the wheels of their home, but that’s an obvious one and I’m in a hurry tonight. Got a surprise birthday party to go to soon! Shot somewhere near Slough […]

Tigh Mor ar Oilean Chleire

When you walk up one of the hills from the North Harbour in Cape Clear Island you’ll walk past this house at the top of the incline. It’s been there forever, and 15 years ago, the back of the house was a small shop selling sweets and other goodies. It’s a B&B now I think, […]

Cottages in decay

Cottages in decay

Two tiny cottages sit on the quayside in Cape Clear’s North Harbour. You might have missed them when you arrived because they’re off in the opposite direction most people take. I was quite taken with the contrast between both cottages. While both are obviously old and have seen better days, the left one has a […]

Behind the Houses

Behind some houses in Bantry, Co. Cork. PS. Thanks Michele for the nice write up on coolsites.ie! Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/100s

Tall trees in Oracle

These tall evergreens planted in front of a set of small houses in Oracle were almost gone before I saw them. The scene looked bizarre. Tall trees, tiny houses. I wonder who lives in them? Here it is on Google Maps. Try the Street View, you’ll see two cars pulled up in front of the […]

Back Gardens in Bantry

Bantry town is built on the hills surrounding a natural harbour so it’s a hard slog with a buggy if you want to go anywhere. Shot this from the road overlooking a few houses. You can see the local hospital in the background too I think. Hope everyone at WordCamp in San Francisco has a […]

2400

No. 2400

At Biosphere 2 in Arizona the land around the main building was sold to developers to fund the experiment and for maintenance. Unfortunately all the houses there looked very empty, but maybe that was because it was in January and in the off season. Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 […]
