There’s Matt setting up the projector screen, Barry sorting through some notes and Michael Adams in the baseball cap. Check out my WordCamp 2007 set on Flickr for more photos from the weekend. Shot handheld at ISO 800 […]

The dog and his bone

The dog and his bone Oscar, our pet Shih Tzu, pictured with a bone shaped biscuit treat. Actually he doesn’t like them much. He prefers Markies, but they’re bought now so he’ll finish them!

A rainy day on the street

Check my Flickr stream for tomorrow’s pic I couldn’t run my future posting script because Flickr changed their […]

Blitz in Cork

Blitz in Cork A modified car sits parked in front of the Carroll’s Quay car park in Cork. The distinctive logo on the wing reminds me of the Transformers. Maybe the driver is a fan?

The smiling baby

The smiling baby My son Adam this afternoon with Tweety Bird. He’s all cheerful and smiling for the camera! I will so miss him and Jacinta when I’m away in San Francisco!

The Erinville Maternity Hospital, Cork

The Erinville Maternity Hospital, Cork The Erinville Hospital in Cork is one of the old maternity hospitals that were shutdown earlier this year and facilities moved to the Cork University Maternity Hospital. My wife Jacinta and I made the short journey here from Blarney many times during her pregnancy, sometimes at ungodly hours in the […]

Gateway to old homes

Gateway to old homes If you walk along the Mardyke in Cork you’re sure to have spotted this green area nestled in off the main road. Does anyone know anything about it? PS. Here is where this is. Google Maps don’t have it on their map, but you can make out the green area in […]

Inside the Cork University Maternity Hospital

Inside the Cork University Maternity Hospital The (still) new Cork University Maternity Hospital or CUMH is shaped like a triangle with a central area that will eventually be planted with grass, flowers and vegetation. For now it’s boring bland grey. To the right and left you can see balconies. The one of the right adjoins […]

Capoeira Girls

Capoeira Girls Two girls show off their Capoeira moves in Fitzgerald’s Park accompanied by music played on the berimbau and atabaque. The fighting is very exciting to watch as participants leap from the ground, and seem to defy gravity on occasion! From the Wikipedia page on Capoeira: Capoeira is a Brazilian fight-dance, game, and martial […]

Party in the park

Party in the park The Capoeira Club on Douglas Street held a day out for the kids just over a week ago in Fitzgerald’s Park in Cork. Unfortunately we arrived just as everything was wrapping up but I got a couple of shots off. There was a great party atmosphere. Parents were there with kids, […]

They’ve done a great job in the park where very nice layouts of flowers can be seen over by the museum. Presumably with the intention of avoiding the kids congregated at […]
