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.

Volkswagen Beetle

Volkswagen Beetle

A Volkswagen Beetle in Blarney reminds me that not everyone has bought a shiny new car. It even has the old style number plates. Does anyone know what year and county “WFI” relates to?

I love how this image is framed by the old fence. B&W works particularly well because of the timeless nature of the subject.

If you know Blarney, this was shot from the car park of Blarney Castle and I posted a shot of the other side of this building in my Emerald House B&B post a while back.

PS. New theme, what do you think?
PPS. David Lavery has posted the Photographer of the Year results on the Mallow Camera Club website. 1 point more and I would have drawn on 3rd place in the novice section.

No. 20, Bantry

I walked around Bantry Town a bit snapping the local streets and this house appealed to me. I think I saw it in b/w and the lovely texture of the walls.

It could also have been the hill and I wanted a small break from pushing the buggy around too of course.

The City of San Francisco

San Francisco as seen from the hills surrounding the City. I took this back in August 2006.

Can you tell yet that I merged a few of my work directories after doing some house keeping work on my photo archive?

Thanks to Niall Kennedy for driving us up there!

Emerald House B&B

At the corner of the main green in Blarney sits Emerald House B&B. I’ve never stayed there but they have a great location, right next to Blarney Castle.

Towering over Cork City

This tower is visible from a few places in Cork. I remember seeing it from near The South Infirmary and this is it seen from the multi storey carpark on the Grand Parade.

Is it up by Barracks Street?

I’m in Arizona for the week. Postings may be late in the evening.
