Academy Street Under Rubble

Academy Street Under Rubble

Academy Street, as it was back in August this year. Construction work has finished since. I wonder if it’ll ever start up again? Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 21mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/1250s

Director's Cut

Director’s Cut

First of all Virgin Megastore was sold off to Zavvi and shortly afterwards they had a liquidation sale and went under. Now Director’s Cut are in there and it’s a depressing store. There’s no piped music to liven the dead atmosphere, oh dear! Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 33mm ISO 400 Shutter […]

Cobh in Black and White

A dump of the b/w images I shot in Cobh over the weekend. It was a strictly “stroll around and do nothing” day (so sorry Conor for not calling in!) as Adam was being minded by my sister. As I said a few days ago, I shot everything in black and white and I’m pleased […]

On the Boardwalk

On the Boardwalk

Phew! What a day! Today we had a great photowalk in Cork. I hesitate to say this, but I think it was probably the most enjoyable photowalk I’ve ever been on. We started out in the Montenotte Hotel, with tea and scones and a chat. After refreshments we headed up on the roof for a […]

Kite Surfer

Kite Surfer

A lone kite surfer flies through the water at Garrettstown Beach in County Cork a few weeks ago. Last weekend with the good weather the beach was packed, but we were there when it was cold, rain drizzled, and a cold wind whipped up the fine sand everywhere. Place was deserted. I like this photo.

Emmett Place Deconstructed

Emmett Place Deconstructed

Emmett Place in Cork is the sight of feverish building work for the past year or two as a huge city block was torn down and then built up again. Here’s the view from the excellent Aroma Restaurant. Aperture ƒ/7.1 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

Barry's Balloons

Barry’s Balloons

Last Sunday a “fun day” was held in the square in Blarney. I had completely forgotten about it until we got down there and there was a huge crowd there with food stalls, a bouncy castle and this inflatable slide and various races for all the kids. Shame about the weather though. Barry’s Balloons obviously […]

Ireland Loves Coca Cola

Ireland Loves Coca Cola

A man taking a break in Bishop Lucey Park, Cork. Coca Cola Ireland made headlines last week when it emerged they were going to outsource their distribution network. Unions weren’t happy of course. Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 200mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/200s

Relax in the Park

Relax in the Park

A man relaxes in Bishop Lucey Park while all around him people enjoy the festival that day. Taken during the photowalk last month. Amazing what cropping does to an image. The original was so busy and I struggled to find the image I wanted out of it but I like this. Aperture ƒ/2.2 Camera Canon […]

The Roughty Fruit King

A long time fixture of the English Market in Cork is this fruit stall run by M F Murphy.

Laughter in the English Market

It’s not all doom and gloom for shopkeepers. These ladies were obviously having a great ol’ chat in this shop in the English Market last month. Another shot from the WW photowalk on July 18th. I seem to be getting a couple of good ones out of that day after all!
