Housing market slow?

Housing market slow? The Irish housing market is slowing down but sales are still being made. A tiny house down the road from this one in Blarney sold a few weeks ago even though I’m sure you could hardly swing a cat in it …

You’re a star

You’re a star So that’s what happens to reality tv show judges when they retire. They go off to Dingle and work on a trawler! In the background is an old burned out trawler that has been tied up to the quay in Dingle for at least the last 18 months. I have photos of […]

Towering over the Elysian building site

Towering over the Elysian building site It’s amazing how much this building site has changed in the last few years. This was taken last May. Now if you took this picture much of the sky would be blocked out by the 3 or 4 storey building work on this side of the site.

The Stanley Super 800 crowd

The Stanley Super 800 crowd The crowd went mad cheering and shouting when filming of Stanley Super 800′s Gatecrashing video finally stopped. You wouldn’t believe how many takes a music video takes but they were as vibrant and cheerful at the end as at the start! Amazing! Image processed through the “Urban Acid” plugin that […]

Think Superwoman!

Think Superwoman! Chalk graffiti on the temporary hoarding in front of the old Dunnes Stores store on Patrick Street, Cork. THINK!

The green chair

The green chair Are you comfortable sir? Please sit down and the lift will descend in a moment. A chair sits in a service lift on the sidewalk outside my hotel in San Francisco. The chair looked so out of place in the urban environment I had to shoot it!

Winter Leaves

Winter Leaves It’s cold out there and the trees are almost bare. Some leaves still hang on however!

Randles Court Starlights

Randall’s Court Starlights We stayed in The Randles Court Hotel in Killarney, Co. Kerry last February and one night I wandered out to take a few shots. This was a long exposure shot, with the aperture closed down as much as possible to f/22. Lovely hotel too!

Boy in his woolly hat

Boy in his woolly hat A small boy waits outside Brown Thomas with his dad while I presume his mother shops inside. I had plenty of company while I waited!

The hand that holds the phone

The hand that holds the phone Waiting outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street in Cork and texting. She’s waiting for someone.

Inside Sullivan’s Quay

Inside Sullivan’s Quay A look inside the old Christian Brother school on Sullivan’s Quay in Cork. The place is a mess. Desks and tables thrown about. Computer monitors sit staring into space and a basketball ring attached to the far wall unused for who knows how long.

Sullivan’s Quay sold!

Sullivan’s Quay sold! The old Christian Brother’s school on Sullivan’s Quay was put up for auction and sold recently. It’s in a prime city centre location but is also a very old building. My brother attended there briefly when the Model School transferred from Anglesea St near the end of it’s life. Interesting bits: School […]

School children

School children While walking back to the car after the Cobh Rambler’s game a few weeks ago I made this picture of a sign on the road. I find it strange that out of the 600-odd images I took that day, this is the first image I’ve uploaded..

Daffodils in the sky

Daffodils in the sky Lovely bright daffodils to brighten up your gloomy November Monday morning! This was taken way back on March 18th this year on the same day I shot these daffodils! The image has been sitting in my WIP folder for months but after my gimp lomo post I decided to post this […]

Grand Parade in the shade

Grand Parade in the shade The buildings of the Grand Parade in Cork face away from the setting sung on a cold February afternoon earlier this year. Cork bathes in the frosty sunlight. This image was of course made of two images, one for the sky and one for the city. It was handheld and […]
