Sometimes I just miss talking to you

Sometimes I just miss talking to you A sticker on the back of a STOP sign reads, “Sometimes I just miss talking to you” and is signed “The 508″. A message of love for someone missing, or mindless graffiti? What makes the image for me is the couple walking by at the bottom of the […]

Engarde! Construction continues in Cork

Engarde! Construction continues in Cork Will the construction work in Cork ever end? They just finished digging up the end of Washington Street and Grande Parade when they dig up that busy corner again. Not quite as bad as the ESB or Bord Gais running a trench through brand new tarmac and leaving a broken […]

Thomas in his buggy

Thomas in his buggy Thomas, a young boy in his buggy on Patrick’s Day this year. He’s well wrapped up against the cold. I have no idea who he is, so hopefully his name is Thomas, and that’s not some famous brand I’m not aware of.

The German Deep Purple

The German Deep Purple This group of lads wandered into the old switching station on Caroline Street during the filming of Stanley Super 800′s video so I took their photo. Apparently they are a German Deep Purple cover band but it was hard to figure out what their name was because they hardly spoke a […]

Stanley Super 800 Fans

Stanley Super 800 Fans Some of the crowd who gathered for the filming of the video accompanying "Gate Crashing", Stanley Super 800′s latest single. You wouldn’t believe how mad this lot were! You can see the video on my my blog.

A child playing in the sand

A child playing in the sand This little girl was playing in the sand on the beach as we walked past. Plenty of toys about, but I don’t think she had built a sand castle yet. It’s lovely to see children playing in the sand. It’s an age of innocence and (sometimes) simple joy that […]

Faces of the TechCrunch Party 2007

Faces of the TechCrunch Party 2007 TechCrunch held their second annual party on Friday night and I was there with a few of the guys from Automattic. It was my first time being at a gathering like this, but we had a good time and I got a couple of shots off. In the collage […]

Cut the chocolate birthday cake

Happy birthday Alex! Yum! Yum! Alex cuts the delicious chocolate birthday cake in Herbivore, San Francisco! That crazy Matt Mullenweg fella can’t resist helping him with the cake. Come to think of it, did anyone not eat the cake? It was so nice!

Cute little dog

Cute little dog A King Charles Spaniel with his owner in Paul Street, Cork a few months ago. I don’t like seeing dogs in the city because it’s so stressful for them but it was really quiet. Little fella looks worried though doesn’t he?

Shot handheld at ISO 800 […]

A rainy day on the street

A rainy day on the street It’s raining in Cork, possibly. The weather has been all upside down this summer. By the time you see this on my photoblog, I’ll be on my way to San Francisco. Check my Flickr stream for tomorrow’s pic I couldn’t run my future posting script because Flickr changed their […]

The smiling baby

The smiling baby My son Adam this afternoon with Tweety Bird. He’s all cheerful and smiling for the camera! I will so miss him and Jacinta when I’m away in San Francisco!

Kissing on the street

Capoeira Girls

Capoeira Girls Two girls show off their Capoeira moves in Fitzgerald’s Park accompanied by music played on the berimbau and atabaque. The fighting is very exciting to watch as participants leap from the ground, and seem to defy gravity on occasion! From the Wikipedia page on Capoeira: Capoeira is a Brazilian fight-dance, game, and martial […]
