Passenger Zone

No parking between signs .. hotel guests with big bags approaching. Handle with care!

Shot outside the hotel the out-of-towners in Automattic stayed in while in San Francisco!

Don’t forget the exhibit in Mallow I mentioned in my gallery update starts tonight. I gave it a plug on too so hopefully we’ll see a healthy number of visitors.

Jesus Christ still loves you

A year ago I photographed this man holding the sign saying Jesus Christ Loves You in San Francisco. Amazingly he’s still in the same spot. That’s dedication for you!

Bull’s Tavern

The logo on his shirt, "Bull’s Tavern" caught my eye as we waited on the sidewalk for the lights to change.

This is near Union Square in San Francisco. Check out the Macy’s sign! Shopping heaven for those so addicted.

Barry and Ann’s Wedding Party

Group shot of almost everyone who attended the wedding of Barry Owens and Ann Murphy on Saturday in Kinsale, Co. Cork. The official photographer very kindly didn’t mind when I took a few shots alongside her.

I originally decided this was going to be black and white but after consultation with my creative half (aka my wife Jacinta) I decided to post it in colour. I desaturated the image slightly and brought up the red, blue and cyan channels a bit.

If you look carefully you’ll see Barry’s brother-in-law Matt near the top of the church! Yes, that’s the sad old tosser!

Children on the merry-go-round

Children smile and laugh as the fairground ride goes around and around! Linda and myself spent a good few minutes shooting this ride.

I combined a long exposure and flash to capture the action and hoped to get a glimpse of a child’s smile. I think I was lucky to get this one!

Shadows on Powell St

The shadow cast by a young man waiting to cross the street forms the main subject of this unusual image. Sort of messes with your head doesn’t it?
