Old rope on the quayside in Bantry Harbour, Co. Cork. I love the different textures in this image, and I knew I’d be happy with it in b/w!
Bertie’s going overboard today, hopefully. As I write this Bertie Ahern is speaking and it sounds like a resignation speech. I haven’t heard an apology for lying under oath and deceiving the public yet however.
Unfortunately we’re all going to forget this by the next election. Hopefully the other parties will make hay while the sun shines.
Posting this today as Miriam’s photo of the same sign reminded me I had shot this at Allihies Beach in Co. Cork.
It’s appropriate too.
Edit – he’s out. Bertie Ahern will resign on May 6th 2008.
Obviously the gentlemen of Bantry are a polite and courteous bunch.
While their women folk are in the public loo an enterprising soul will sell them flowers for their better half!
The Ouvane River runs near Bantry in Co. Cork and in the distance is Carriganass Castle.
The weather was terrible when I took this. Showers, cold, wind. How I suffer for my art!
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.
We walked around The Lough and wandered over to the daffodils growing by the footpath at one of the lake. That’s Sean Murphy in the background as he preps some of his equipment to take a shot.
Probably my last photo from the Lough Photowalk!
Swans swim past on The Lough in Cork City. This was one of the first photos I took at the recent photowalk there. Despite the clear blue sky and lovely light it was quite cold with a biting wind!
Some of the swans at the Lough a few weeks ago during the photo walk. Got a few more shots from that session to post!
I think it’s safe to say this was the biggest smile of St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2008 for me. Nobody in the crowd was smiling anyway. They were all too squashed in or straining to see over the heads of those in front.
