Feed the swans at the Lough Girls feed the swans at the Lough on Sunday afternoon. Urban acid Will posted his first photo from the day on his blog. He did arrive late, but he made up for lost time!
The Lough Photowalkers We had a great day today. 11 people showed up at the Lough in Glasheen today for the photowalk. Pictured above are some of us. Unfortunately Patrick and Amy, and then Brendan left earlier. Thank you all for taking the time and making the effort to come. It was freezing cold and […]
Sunshine on the Conor Pass This will probably be the final photo from that September 2006 visit to the Conor Pass. It’s taken earlier than some of the others but I’m a sucker for leading lines so it had to go in! I love the reflection in the water on the valley floor, and the […]
Thumbs up for Cork! You may remember this gentleman from a photo I posted around a year ago (it’s pure coincidence I’m posting this today! Really!) This was shot in Midleton, Co. Cork during the Food and Drink Festival in 2006. Nice guy who came over for a chat afterwards.
Spectators on the beach The hang gliding crowd attracted a bit of a crowd on Inch Beach in 2006. Well, it was late September and there wasn’t that many people on the beach in the first place, so 2 people isn’t so bad, eh? Hunger got the best of us and we watched as a […]
Unnamed Beauty This is one of the beautiful girls who modeled for Mallow Camera Club in September 2006. I can’t remember her name, and at the time I was totally unhappy with the image, but maybe it’s because I haven’t looked at it in a long time, I really like it now. I shot several […]
Carroll’s Quay Apartments This is the apartment block that sprang up opposite the car park, from which I took this photo. The building itself is a dull grey monstrosity. Large windows look out on the street, hardly offering any privacy for residents. Tiny balconies sit outside some of the windows.
Smiling pretty girls On the night when firemen closed off Dorothy Perkins in Cork, a few people saw my camera and presumed I was a photojournalist. Some even asked what was happening but I didn’t know! Anyway, these two girls wanted their photo taken. They presumed I was with the Evening Echo but I told […]
Susan’s Fine Silver During the Christmas rush I went searching for gifts for my wife and the first place I went was Susan’s Fine Silver on Marlboro Street in Cork. This is Susan’s husband Barry, and that’s Michael replacing merchandise in the window. Both were very helpful and I got two lovely gifts for Jacinta. […]
Firemen in action Cork City Fire Brigade were called out this evening to a shop on Patrick Street. I’m not sure what the emergency was but two fire engines were called to the scene and had a Garda escort on the way there. Maybe a gas leak? A huge crowd gathered around and when some […]
Starlight headlights A long five second exposure at f/22 captured cars stuck on Patrick Street about a month ago. They’ve done some fabulous work on the pavements of Cork’s main thoroughfare but it hasn’t made a jot of difference to vehicular traffic, except to make it more dangerous to pedestrians as they saunter across junctions […]
Christmas Baubles Christmas Baubles hang in Porter’s newsagent, Cork. Christmas decoration is everywhere but reflective surfaces present an opportunity to take a self portrait. Yes, that’s me reflected! Hope you had a great Christmas Day. We went travelling and I must say it was the best Christmas Day in a long time. I think I […]
