No walking stick

No walking stick It’s a good thing nobody in this picture needs help walking or getting about! Is that sign really saying walking sticks aren’t allowed? It could be one of the following too, what do you think? No backpackers No mountaineers or hikers No round headed people Or possibly even “people with bags on […]

Looking onto Freedom

Looking onto Freedom A young woman talks on her mobile phone while looking out a barred window in Alcatraz Prison, San Francisco. Walking through the prison was quite an experience, especially as tourists like myself took photos and listened to the audio tour while wandering. It was easy to imagine how awful incarceration must be […]

New Johnny T

Little Communion Girl

Little Communion Girl A girl dressed in a communion dress and veil walks with her mother through the crowds on St. Patrick’s Street Cork on Saturday. Dressed as she is, she looks almost lost but the crowd parted way for her and her parents. I don’t know why she was dressed like that. First Communion […]

Go faster! Go faster!

Go faster! Go faster! A young girl in a buggy leans forward as her mother pushes her along St. Patrick’s Street, Cork. Looks like her mother was busy shopping in Penney’s and elsewhere so I’m sure she’ll look forward to getting home! I like this: This Flight Tonight, and make sure you download the linked […]

Gone fishing

Gone fishing Two fishermen enjoy the sun while a huge container ship, the Maersk Derince, passes by in the background. You can see they’re very busy. Even the gull that has landed close by is watching intently. It’s another hectic day in San Francisco. Technique: I wasn’t sure what to make of this photo. I […]

The road beyond Fountainstown

The road beyond Fountainstown Have you ever gone beyond the beach at Fountainstown in Co. Cork? I’ve been visiting that beach all my life but I had never walked up the road until a week ago. I’m glad I did because it’s very nice up there, and coupled with a setting sun I went a […]

Lady at the lights

Lady at the lights If looks could kill! I don’t know who she was looking at but she doesn’t look happy! Pictured on the corner of Washington Street and Grand Parade a few days ago while we waited for the traffic lights to change. Finn’s Corner, a sports clothes shop, has been on that corner […]

Girls Talking

Girls Talking Girls seated on the side of the pavement and on the road deep in conversation at the Ceili Mor in Cork a few weeks ago. Despite the noise of people dancing, an announcer and music playing I think a meaningful discussion was had! Looks like I’ve made it. One of my photos was […]

Happy child in the water

Happy child in the water A very happy boy runs through the incoming tide at Inch Strand, Co. Kerry. The tide came in suddenly forcing all the adults back but it brought a big smile to this youngster’s face! Originally shot in colour with the sun behind the boy, I had to brighten the image […]

Keep a lookout

Keep a lookout A father and two sons on St. Patrick’s Street, Cork. I presume they’re waiting for someone from what I heard of the dad talking on his phone as I passed. Blown out details are on purpose to give it a slightly edgier effect. Hope you like it!
