A bird atop the light outside my house calls into the glowing evening sky heralding the end of 2007.
After walking Oscar I had to grab my camera and shoot the beautiful evening sky. The background was this colour, there’s no trickery here except a little vignetting and sharpening.
The trees along the Marina in Blackrock, Cork are bare at the this time of year but the sun shone today as if it was the height of Summer. It was lovely, even with the biting wind.
Shot from the grounds of Pairc Ui Chaoimh (no relation!) while out walking with my sister, my son Adam who slept quietly in his buggy, and my dog Oscar who loved the long walk.
Some people go to all lengths to watch the St. Patrick’s Day Parade as these kids show.
Congrats to my friends John and Ann on the birth of their son Caelin yesterday. You’re lives are going to change *so much* but you’re going to have a great time with the little guy!
PS. Just upgraded almost all my blogs to WP 2.5, please leave a comment if you notice anything odd!

Children look out of an upstairs window in Merchants Quay shopping centre. When I took this shot I didn’t even see them!
I was concentrating on the kids in the foreground with their flags. I think they frame the street sign rather nicely and ties in with the name of the day too.
This reminds me of someone at Mallow Camera Club who showed a number of slides he had bought or got off a priest who had served on a mission in South America. The images were from decades ago and the priest was dead and buried by now. Pictures were still as good as ever, but they’re languishing in a slide box now. I’d love to see them uploaded to Flickr and made public.
A young girl leans on a traffic light where she has a bird’s eye view of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork.
Flowers outside The Lough Parish Church, “Church of the Immaculate Conception”.
You can read more about the church and mass times at the The Lough Parish page on the Diocese website.
Besides the beautiful swans, there’s the usual gathering of pigeons waddling along on the path picking up bread crumbs.
Too tempting. I had to chase after them and encourage them to fly a little. Some of them need the exercise!
In an emergency such as a fire you want to be able to escape from a building quickly and be assured that there’s plenty of water to fight the flames. I presume these capped pipes have something to do with that purpose?
