Wide Open Spaces

Wide Open Spaces

The wide open space at the top of Patrick’s Street in Cork is a crossroads for traffic going along Cork’s busiest streets. It’d be a nightmare to cross without the pedestrian lights, not that stops people racing or even sauntering across in front of oncoming traffic.

Woodford Bourne & Co

Woodford Bourne and Co

The top of Patrick’s Street in Cork is dominated by Mc Donalds, taking over from Mandy’s in the Woodford Bourne & Co building.

Check out this old advert from 1910. You can still recognise the building! Much more information about that structure can be found here. I vaguely remember Mandy’s but don’t remember it before that.

The 8A Bus

The 8A Bus

A man gets on the 8A bus to Curraheen on Patrick Street, Cork last Saturday.

This was on the way to the photowalk, walking up the street with Chris to where Will had double parked because he was driving home again. Chris had dropped his camera in the car when he got out!

Out of the rain

Out of the rain

A young lady steps out of the rain on Tuckey Street, Cork last Saturday. What you don’t see in this shot is the large group of photographers behind me, sheltering under the awning outside Tribes. A torrential rain shower had just passed and thankfully was the last we saw.

PS. Cork photowalkers! Upload your images to this group on Flickr! Or you can upload them to Pix.ie too. Make sure to tag them “cork”, “corkphotowalk”, “skphoto” and “worldwidephotowalk” for maximum exposure!
