Girls on the street

Girls on the street St. Patrick’s Day brought out a huge crowd onto the streets and here’s a group of girls we bumped into on Patrick’s Street. We were on our way to a cafe for refreshment when I spotted a bicycle chained to a pole, but it had fallen down. As is my way […]

Animal Care Society Collection

Animal Care Society Collection Volunteers from the Animal Care Society were out in force on Saturday collecting to raise funds. We bumped into Beamish and his owner and I forgot to ask her name, but hopefully she’ll see this picture as I gave her one of my cards. Beamish was lovely and very placid, perfect […]

The most sent around duck photo

I would love to know who made an email attachment of my thieving duck and thank them. The Aflac Duck seems to be a well known part of American insurance marketing and people got a kick out of these ducks stealing money from a lady on the street! Apparently my thieving duck has become “the […]

Silhouettes in the club

Silhouettes in the club Some of the audience who gathered to take part in the Stanley Super 800 video of Gatecrashing silhouetted against the bright lights around the band’s equipment. I underexposed on purpose so the silhouettes of the people in the image contrasted with the stage lighting. Shot during a break in performances when […]

Stanley Super 800 Gatecrashing

Where does the weekend go? Last weekend was "getting the baby stuff together" weekend, but it was also buy another UPS time too as Blarney was hit by another couple of power cuts. It was also Ken‘s stag and I was simply too tired to go out on Saturday night so I missed all the […]

City people in a b/w world

City people in a b/w world Shopping, talking, walking and rushing. People in the concrete jungle. Selective colourisation using a layer mask to hide a b/w layer above the original colour layer. Shot from the same place I took this photo in front of The Body Shop in Cork.

The eyes in the bus

The eyes in the bus A child looking out the back window of a bus. Weird colours and look due to some experimenting with new plugins. Way overblown I know but I gotta have some fun sometimes!

Sleeping it off in Cork City

This was snapped while walking past Marks & Spencers on Patrick’s Street last year. I spotted the security […]
