Construction cranes at night

Cranes over the construction site at the old Guy and Company site make for a striking image at night.

This was taken from the Tesco multi-storey car park, a few metres away from where I shot Clouds move at night.

Yesterday we had to bring the car for a service so I took the opportunity to travel to visit the framer in Kilbrittain and sign the border of the prints Haydn has made. The prints look great, they’re raised up from the background border and will eventually be framed in a deep frame. I hope to post photos of my visit in the next few days if I get the time to work on the photos.

Gone shopping at Adams Kids

Mom and daughter hurry past on Panna after shopping in Adams Kids.

In the background is the old Dunnes Stores which has been pulled down leaving the front facing of the building and a wide swath of destruction and deconstruction behind it extending to Emmet Place.

Cross processed in the GIMP with the curves tool.

PS. Thanks to Gamma for mentioning the exhibition in Mallow too. All links and publicity are greatly appreciated!

Cork flies the rebel flag

Red and white flags flew all over Cork City today and for the past week in anticipation of the All Ireland Football Final between Cork and Kerry.

Unfortunately Kerry won and decisively so too as I heard from my father-in-law Frank who filled me in on all the gory details!

San Francisco Streets

A cyclist races across across an almost empty junction in San Francisco.

I just love the sign on top of the building. Totally out of place amid the beautiful architecture and detail of it’s resting place.

Crossing the Finish Line

Three girls run past the “Finish” line after the Blarney half marathon on Sunday.

It was a funny place to put that sign as it was well behind the actual finish line. Guess they didn’t have any poles to stick it up on ..
