Bay Bridge at Night

The Bay Bridge in San Francisco as it was in 2007. I can’t believe that was seven years ago. Wow.

Ground Level by Bishop Lucey Park

Ground Level by Bishop Lucey Park

The Grand Parade in Cork was quite different 11 years ago. Outside Bishop Lucey Park was an uneven path, the centre of the street was a narrow section between two busy strips of tarmac. And of course the Capitol Cinema was still open. I’m glad the monstrosity pictured here was never built there, even if […]

Evening after the storm

The evening after the storm

Ireland has been lashed with some severe winds and storms over the last 2 weeks. There’s destruction in many locations around the coast and inland too but sometimes the storm abates and the sun shines between the clouds.

Ferris Wheel No 3

Ferris Wheel No. 3

And the last of the Ferris Wheel shots from about a week ago. I prefer to take photos and work on them rather than come up snappy titles and accompanying text for blog posts. Facebook, Flickr and social media sites have the advantage here where all you need to do is hit upload and you […]

Rapid Transport on the Ferris Wheel

Rapid Transport on the Ferris Wheel

Another shot of the ferris wheel in the Grand Parade, Cork from last weekend. As I said in my previous big wheel post it wasn’t moving all that fast. It just depends on how the photographer shoots it!

The big wheel in Cork

The big wheel in Cork

We went into Cork City to see the big wheel on The Grand Parade this evening. It was freezing cold but a huge crowd was out braving the frigid temperatures. There were long lines for the wheel and had it been earlier I might have gone up there to take some photos but the wheel […]

Fire Dancers in Santa Cruz

Fire Dancers in Santa Cruz

One from a few months back. Automattic held their annual grand meetup in California this year and we split our time between San Francisco and Santa Cruz. On our final night in Santa Cruz there was a small party for everyone and fire dancers appeared to entertain us. I was across the poll from them […]

Horse Trough in Parnell Place

Horse Trough in Parnell Place

It’s been many years since horses have drunk from this trough in Parnell Place, Cork but it’s great this old street furniture is still here. There’s a similar one on Alfred Street, in front of Mc Loughlin’s.

Sunset over Cork City

Sunset over Cork City

The sun sets over Cork City as seen from Mayfield yesterday evening. Love the colour of the sun shining on the underside of the cloud!

Boats in Cobh

Boats in Cobh

Some of the boats that have taken up semi-permanent residence in Cobh pictured in 2006. I think some of those boats are still there! That was a beautiful but cold January evening. Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 18mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/500s
