People of the Blarney Half Marathon

People of the Blarney Half Marathon This couple posed for me as they walked along the Waterloo Road. I’d venture to say he probably ran the half marathon in less than 90 minutes. People of the Blarney Half Marathon We chatted for a few minutes near the finish line while runners streamed past. He finished […]

After the Blarney Half Marathon

After the Blarney Half Marathon Four runners who took part in today’s half-marathon in Blarney rest after their ordeal. They were too out of breath to talk but kindly consented to having their photo taken. More photos to come tomorrow!

Caroline Street ESB Station

Caroline Street ESB Station This used to be an electricity switching station for the trams that traveled around Cork city and suburbs many years ago. This building was the location for Stanley Super 800′s Gatecrashing video many month’s ago. I still have some super shots of the interior to post. I’ll eventually get around to […]

Barry and Ann’s Wedding Party

Barry and Ann’s Wedding Party Group shot of almost everyone who attended the wedding of Barry Owens and Ann Murphy on Saturday in Kinsale, Co. Cork. The official photographer very kindly didn’t mind when I took a few shots alongside her. I originally decided this was going to be black and white but after consultation […]

Gallery and exhibit updates

I met Haydn today at Garettstown Beach where he showed me some of the prints that will be going on display in the gallery within a few weeks. Since I last mentioned this, he has moved into Kinsale and has a store right on the quay in a prime location! I’m looking forward to the […]

Shih Tzu and the Ball

Shih Tzu and the Ball Shih Tzu dogs love to play ball! We only found this out after a dog trainer came to the house and “ruffled his fur” a bit and in the process Oscar became a lot more relaxed. Now he adores playing ball and even one mention of, “where’s the ball?” and […]

The groomed Shih Tzu

The groomed Shih Tzu Our pet Shih Tzu, Oscar, has been suffering under the unusual August weather. It’s actually quite warm, and his long coat is more useful for colder weather. So this morning we had him groomed and doesn’t he look cute?

Children on the merry-go-round

Children on the merry-go-round Children smile and laugh as the fairground ride goes around and around! Linda and myself spent a good few minutes shooting this ride. I combined a long exposure and flash to capture the action and hoped to get a glimpse of a child’s smile. I think I was lucky to get […]

BBQ at the Waterloo Inn

BBQ at the Waterloo Inn Jimmy and Paul served the bbq to hungry parents, kids and everyone else at the charity bbq in the Waterloo Inn today. They spent over an hour dealing with flames and hot food at the end of a blisteringly hot day and really deserved the round of applause afterwards. Well […]

Construction in the old warehouse

Construction in the old warehouse This is the ground floor of the old warehouse on Father Mathew Quay in Cork. For years it lay rotting away, an eyesore just behind the South Mall, but it’s being developed now. I guess there are apartments going in there, but I recall seeing only tiny windows on the […]

Santa & Cole in Cork

Santa & Cole in Cork Santa came to Cork early this year, sort of. This metal work is from somewhere on the Grand Parade in Cork. It’s designed by the firm of Santa & Cole, obviously, and seems to be a perfect place for people to throw their litter unfortunately.

Lysfoss heads into Cork

Lysfoss heads into Cork A large cargo ship of the Lys Line company called "Lysfoss" makes it’s way into Cork while a small fishing boat is tied to the pier in Cobh. In the distance the harbour pilot can be seen heading for the small harbour in Cobh. It’s fascinating what comes up on Google: […]
