Crimson Red Flowers

Crimson Red Flowers

Glowing red flowers captured my attention at Fitzgerald’s Park a year ago, but I was never happy with my work on this photo until recently. Now I love it. Hope you like it too!

hey BABe

Stenciled graffiti near Fitzgerald Park in Cork City. The walls of this alleyway were covered in in street art.

Is it vandalism or not? If not, would you like your house spray painted with slogans and designs. I guess there’s a place for everything.

Traffic must go left

Air traffic goes that way

Traffic must go left. This is one of those shots that has sat in TODO folder for ages and ages because I liked it, but it was sorely in need of some work. I probably cheated by making it black and white.

Shot down at Cork Docklands about 13 months ago.

Rushing through countryside

I shot this through the window of our car while driving back to the ranch after Automattic’s trip to Biosphere 2 in Arizona a few months ago. I love how the foreground blurs but the background and the sky remain motionless and static. Love the movement.

Spotty Cactus

Another cactus shot from Arizona. I’m sure this is as boring as the flower pics everyone else posts for people who live in the desert but it’s all new to me!

I am the winner!

More shots of members of Circo Copa who entertained the crowds at Fitzgerald’s Park on Sunday last. The man with the duster chased the female member of the group around, tickling her and was then declared the winner in some obscure but funny competition.

If Adam was a few years older I’d bring him to see them perform in the Spiegeltent.

Blarney Castle and River Martin

Blarney Castle and River Martin

The River Martin flows near Blarney Castle in Co. Cork on a cold December morning in 2005. The Castle grounds were quiet that day with hardly a soul about! Spencer Tunick would have been hardly known in the area at the time.

The Lord Mayor’s Picnic, Cork 2008

Fitzgerald’s Park was packed yesterday for The Lord Mayor’s Picnic. I hope the following photos give you a flavour of the mayhem! I don’t think I’ve ever seen as many people in the Park!

Circo Copia Performance

Two members of Circo Copia performed for adults and kids alike at Fitzgerald’s Park yesterday during the Lord Mayor’s Picnic. Have you ever seen someone balance an umbrella on his forehead and play the mandolin at the same time? I have! This crazy bunch of performers had the crowd well entertained!

They’re playing in the Spiegeltent later in the month so if you didn’t catch them yesterday you have another chance. I spotted a Cork Circus van nearby so I’m pretty sure they’re part of that. Also, I think the face in the background belongs to the tall fella in these pictures of my wife and her “royal retinue”. I think the woman sticking her tongue out in the linked post was the 3rd member of Circo Copia yesterday. 🙂
