Obviously the gentlemen of Bantry are a polite and courteous bunch.
While their women folk are in the public loo an enterprising soul will sell them flowers for their better half!
Grass growing in the Arizona desert.
The Ouvane River runs near Bantry in Co. Cork and in the distance is Carriganass Castle.
The weather was terrible when I took this. Showers, cold, wind. How I suffer for my art!
We walked around The Lough and wandered over to the daffodils growing by the footpath at one of the lake. That’s Sean Murphy in the background as he preps some of his equipment to take a shot.
Probably my last photo from the Lough Photowalk!
Swans swim past on The Lough in Cork City. This was one of the first photos I took at the recent photowalk there. Despite the clear blue sky and lovely light it was quite cold with a biting wind!
Some of the swans at the Lough a few weeks ago during the photo walk. Got a few more shots from that session to post!
I think it’s safe to say this was the biggest smile of St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2008 for me. Nobody in the crowd was smiling anyway. They were all too squashed in or straining to see over the heads of those in front.
Squashed in on St Patrick’s Day.
Children look out of an upstairs window in Merchants Quay shopping centre. When I took this shot I didn’t even see them!
I was concentrating on the kids in the foreground with their flags. I think they frame the street sign rather nicely and ties in with the name of the day too.
This reminds me of someone at Mallow Camera Club who showed a number of slides he had bought or got off a priest who had served on a mission in South America. The images were from decades ago and the priest was dead and buried by now. Pictures were still as good as ever, but they’re languishing in a slide box now. I’d love to see them uploaded to Flickr and made public.
