Boy in his woolly hat

Boy in his woolly hat A small boy waits outside Brown Thomas with his dad while I presume his mother shops inside. I had plenty of company while I waited!

The hand that holds the phone

The hand that holds the phone Waiting outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street in Cork and texting. She’s waiting for someone.

Inside Sullivan’s Quay

Inside Sullivan’s Quay A look inside the old Christian Brother school on Sullivan’s Quay in Cork. The place is a mess. Desks and tables thrown about. Computer monitors sit staring into space and a basketball ring attached to the far wall unused for who knows how long.

Sullivan’s Quay sold!

Sullivan’s Quay sold! The old Christian Brother’s school on Sullivan’s Quay was put up for auction and sold recently. It’s in a prime city centre location but is also a very old building. My brother attended there briefly when the Model School transferred from Anglesea St near the end of it’s life. Interesting bits: School […]

School children

School children While walking back to the car after the Cobh Rambler’s game a few weeks ago I made this picture of a sign on the road. I find it strange that out of the 600-odd images I took that day, this is the first image I’ve uploaded..

Daffodils in the sky

Daffodils in the sky Lovely bright daffodils to brighten up your gloomy November Monday morning! This was taken way back on March 18th this year on the same day I shot these daffodils! The image has been sitting in my WIP folder for months but after my gimp lomo post I decided to post this […]

Grand Parade in the shade

Grand Parade in the shade The buildings of the Grand Parade in Cork face away from the setting sung on a cold February afternoon earlier this year. Cork bathes in the frosty sunlight. This image was of course made of two images, one for the sky and one for the city. It was handheld and […]

Cassettes

Cassettes I wonder if the teenager wearing this hoodie realised the irony of wearing a garment decorated with cassette images, a piece of technology he may not ever have used. The Wikipedia page has a lot more to say on the subject. This was shot outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street, Cork while I wheeled […]

A girl’s bag

A girl’s bag Two girls stop to talk on Patrick’s Street, Cork. That bag looks uncomfortable. What do women put in their bags?

Internet Cafe

Internet Cafe The Internet Cafe is that way. Sign is on The South Mall in Cork. PS. GIMP 2.4.1 was released yesterday. It’s a bugfix release!

Waves at Couminole

Waves at Couminole The waves crash on to the beach at Couminole on Slea Head, Co. Kerry. Standing where I was when I took this image was scary. Huge waves lifting up water to head height before crashing down mere feet in front of me. Is that Skellig Michael in the background?

The Kerry Flag

The Kerry Flag Kerry were still celebrating their win in the All Ireland when we stayed in Dingle a few weeks back and flags were flying everywhere!

Shadows on Slea Head

Shadows on Slea Head Shadows from the broken clouds above play over the landscape on Slea Head in Co. Kerry. Every moment was a different photo until the rain eventually caught up with us!

Halloween Pumpkin Head

Halloween Pumpkin Head A Halloween Pumpkin Head or Jack-o’-lantern stares off at the community hall where Mallow Camera Club meet each Monday. I spotted the head after our last meeting. It’s hand-held in low light so I had to pump up the ISO to get a steady shot. More on this Halloween tradition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack-o’-lantern http://wilstar.com/holidays/hallown.htm

Montague Burton the Tailor of Taste

Montague Burton the Tailor of Taste Like the stone laid by Barbara Jessie Burton in 1927, this doorway probably goes unnoticed by most people on Prince’s Street. It’s right next to the stone linked above, but the door is usually closed. I spotted this colourful mosaic out of the corner of my eye and recognised […]
