Weird World

Weird World

Sometimes your world is just a little off kilter and not completely level. Photo of St. Patrick’s Street, Cork taken back in January this year. You know that a photo is of an often photographed subject when WordPress has all the tags required for it in the “most used tags” section of the Write screen… […]

False dawn of the city

False dawn of the city

As you may have already guessed, that’s not the dawn. It’s the lights of Cork City (and Blarney) shining and into the sky in a long exposure shot I made last August. I had meant to mention this sooner but 2 weeks ago I was shocked to hear about the death of Debbie Metrustry (@debbiemet), […]

New Years Eve Lunar Eclipse

New Year’s Eve Lunar Eclipse

We called over to a friend’s house yesterday evening and even though I had heard there would be an eclipse I completely forgot about it. My Dad even texted me at 6.25pm that it’d be happening between 7pm and 8pm but I still forgot. Lucky he rang my wife and she reminded me of the […]

Signs of Quebec Industry

On the journey into Quebec City from where we’re staying it’s impossible not to miss the plumes of steam (and smoke?) rising from a number of buildings, seemingly right in the middle of an urban area. According to our guide the buildings contain a cigarette factory and a paper recycling plant. Up close one of […]

Night Over Quebec

Night Over Quebec

Night falls over Quebec as we finish our tour and photowalk around the city. ISO 1600 came in very useful as the sky got darker! Pictured here are a few of the buildings just outside the old city walls. I think the Hilton is the building on the right. Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length […]

Keeping the Chicks Alive

Keeping the Chicks Alive

2 chicks are fed by a parent just outside the window of my home office here in Blarney. The chicks have been there all evening and I just looked out again and they’re still there. Unfortunately the neighbour’s cat, Patches, saw them too and is keeping a vigil close by. We saw the parent bird […]
