Your future: wear a beard

Important decisions in life. What job will I do in the future and should I wear a beard? I’ve got the job bit covered, but would I look better with a beard? I think there’d be trouble if I tried growing one! The wearbeard sticker really caught my eye. It’s just weird to create a […]

Fancy ass public transport

OK, so it’s not quite a bus, but it’s a stretch limo. I saw it again today cruising up and down Patrick’s Street with the rear window open a crack. I’d hate to see that try to navigate a tight bend! Aperture ƒ/5 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 12mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/250s

T.J. Newman, Schull

We had lunch in T.J. Newman’s in the town of Schull last month. Lovely thick bread in the sandwiches I got. Kept us going for ages and tasty too! Adam loved looking at all the paintings upstairs! Aperture ƒ/7.1 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

Daisies in the grass

This is really looking back into the archives. I shot this in 2004, probably with the Sony 717 and at a guess probably in the park near the Gun Powder Mills in Ballincollig. Long time ago. Lovely day! Aperture ƒ/3.5 Camera CYBERSHOT Focal length 9.7mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/1000s

Bench and Wheel

A decorative bench and wheel on the ranch in Arizona. I took so many shots of the place I’m still struggling to catch up and mark the ones I want to work on but I will eventually get to them. I suspect some may not see the light of day until next year though! Aperture […]

John Sullivan

This is John Sullivan, a man we met near the beach at Allihies in West Cork a few days ago. He’s quite a remarkable man, especially as he will be 91 in June. I’ll be very happy with myself if I’m as fit and healthy as he is when I celebrate my 91st birthday! The […]

Boats and fishing tackle

Boats and lobster pots (I presume?) lie on the quay in Bantry. This area is a must see for photographers. There are so many things to see you could spend hours there just snapping away! Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/80s

No moo room

Cows gather in the shed against the howling wind and cold at Allihies. No room for any more though! Aperture ƒ/4.5 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 22mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/30s

A place to live in the trees

I noticed this small hut while out walking one afternoon on the ranch in Arizon last January. Bit of a squeeze I bet! Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 300mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/125s

Junk in the desert

I’m not sure what this metal object used to be, but it was sitting in the desert on the ranch in Arizona. I loved the contrasting textures and light and shadows so I had to shoot it! Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

An Fear Marbh san uisce

An Fear Marbh, or “The Dead Man” in English lies off the coast of Co. Kerry. I posted another photo of the island taken on the same night as this one here, but it was such a beautiful evening I took quite a few shots! Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 33mm ISO […]

Sheila

This boat, Sheila, has been tied up in Cobh for I don’t know how long. This photo was taken in 2006 but the last time I was in Cobh around this area I remember seeing it. I wonder what’s the story with it? Aperture ƒ/5 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 200 Shutter […]
