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

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 […]

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 […]

Beaty Treatment at The Body Shop

Beauty Treatment at The Body Shop

I’m still recovering after the photowalk yesterday! I took a quick look through my photos this evening and decided I’m not over the moon about any of them. A couple are ok, but there’s that little critical part of my mind saying, “crap, crap, crap, blah, ‘s ok, focus is off, boring, what were you […]

The Worldwide Photowalkers

The Worldwide Photowalkers

41 had signed up but some couldn’t make it unfortunately. In the end, a more manageable 23 turned up. Here’s most of us as pictured afterwards in The Old Oak bar where we went for drinks and sandwiches. I had a great time today, I think everyone else did too by their reactions. The day […]

Youghal, last April. Coca Cola sells happiness while Tesco tries to sell bargains. PS. I just posted a gallery of photos from the IBA 09 photowalk last February. Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/200s

O'Briens Sandwich Bar

O’Briens Sandwich Bar

“O’Briens’ HQ placed in examinership” according to this news report yesterday. This is their fairly recently opened (and more recently closed) “sandwich bar” on Oliver Plunkett Street here in Cork. Loved their Triple Decker, even if it was a little pricey. Hope the company survives. Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 21mm ISO […]

The Big Slide

The Big Slide

In Fitzgerald’s Park a week ago the Street Performance World Championship 2009 brought the crowds to the park. This multi story slide was one of the main attractions. Huge long queue for it though. Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/200s
