We Went Bowling

We Went Bowling We went bowling today, and I took a few shots. So far nobody has attempted to kill me for shooting so many photos! An open air meeting of Automattic yesterday went superbly, although we’re all a little burned. Sitting in the afternoon sun in a park by the Golden Gate was worth […]

Andy in the car

Andy in the car Andy Skelton pictured in the back of Matt’s car here in San Francisco! This is an experiment in iPhoto because I can’t ssh home! Andy took a photo of me in the airport as we waited for Podz. I was wilting and falling asleep on my feet. Note to everyone – […]

After reading this story about the Kudsi family I have a lot more sympathy for them. Their house was bombed early one morning and most of the household was wiped out. “In the early hours of […]

Running Child

Begging

Begging Children pass a Romanian woman begging in Cork. She is part of a growing group of gypsies who have come to Ireland as refugees. Unfortunately many of them have realised that Ireland is a land of rich pickings while their application for asylum is processed. New laws have changed matters but Ireland is still […]

Run for the bus!

Run for the bus! A bit of an experiment this one. As I walked along Merchant’s Quay this woman and her husband barrelled past. The picture of her husband is simply a blur but I like what I got of her. The streaky lines are caused by an excessive dodge/burn tool but I like the […]

Skibbereen or Hospital

Skibereen or Hospital A sign in the foreground of the main square in Bantry, Co. Cork. We went to Ahakista eventually! This is made from one exposure but I had this great looking sky and underexposed buildings and ground detail. To get an even exposure I split the photo using two layers and adjusted the […]

Moynihan’s Poultry

Moynihan’s Poultry A long exposure shot in the English Market in the vicinity of one of the many chicken meat shops. The camera was set to f/8.0 and placed on top of a wall. In this semi-dark passage the exposure was 1/4 second blurring the passing people nicely but capturing the relatively motionless shop keepers.
