No moo room

Cows gather in the shed against the howling wind and cold at Allihies. No room for any more though!

A place to live in the trees

I noticed this small hut while out walking one afternoon on the ranch in Arizon last January. Bit of a squeeze I bet!

Junk in the desert

I’m not sure what this metal object used to be, but it was sitting in the desert on the ranch in Arizona. I loved the contrasting textures and light and shadows so I had to shoot it!

Blarney on April 24, 2008

I had to get the car fixed today. A ball bearing was broken in one of the rear wheels and driving was like one of those modded cars with huge exhausts. Noisy and annoying. So, I took the car down to Blarney Auto Centre where they sorted it out this afternoon. I took the opportunity to get some exercise in by walking back home and took a few photos. Enjoy!

Naked in Ireland

spencer tunick

I’ve mentioned Spencer Tunick a few times already on this blog and it seems he’s coming to Ireland soon and bringing his unusual brand of nude photography with him.

Internationally acclaimed contemporary artist Spencer Tunick will be offering the public the chance of a lifetime to become part of his first back to back city art project in both Cork and Dublin this June. Multiple groups of nude participants will be photographed outdoors by Tunick as part of his series of installations that have previously taken place in cities around the world including New York, Amsterdam and Mexico City.

Cork: 17th June 2008
Dublin Docklands: 21st June 2008

And, considering the really bad weather lately, let’s hope the sun shines when he’s taking his photos. From the FAQ:

What will happen if it’s raining or very cold weather?
The installation will happen rain or shine. The installation will happen if the weather is cold, but the artist will work as quick as possible to make his art.

No, I won’t be volunteering. Good luck if you’re going!

This boat, Sheila, has been tied up in Cobh for I don’t know how long. This photo was taken in 2006 but the last time I was in Cobh around this area I remember seeing it. I wonder what’s the story with it?

Adam O Caoimh, year one

Adam O Caoimh

I couldn’t let today go by without posting some photos of our little boy Adam on his first birthday! Happy birthday son! Mom and Dad love you to bits. Hopefully you won’t be too embarrassed by this post in years to come!

He’s grown up so fast in front of our eyes and developing into a proper little boy it’s amazing. I’d hardly recognise the tiny little baby he was just a year ago.
