One Eye Oscar!

Shih Tzu dogs need a lot of grooming and Oscar is no exception. This is him in the snow on Christmas Day last year. Good thing he had all that fur as it was freezing!

Hold Her Steady

A ship tied up at the quay in Kinsale, Co. Cork last year. The vessel was mostly deserted but we saw revellers boarding it regularly, walking around the deck and then off again!

Romanes Eunt Domus

Romans go home! No! It’s “Romani ite Domum”!

Ah, the Life of Brian. What a film. Great fun that was.

At a military show in Cork City Gaol last year we saw a display of Roman Legions fighting and a small history lesson in the life and times back then. It was a fascinating display and I must dig up some more of the photos I shot that day!

A Cup among the the rocks

The smooth uniform texture of a cup contrasted with the rough and weathered stones of a wall on Cape Clear Island. Somewhere near where I took the previous shot I saw this cup at the side of the road and was struck by the oddness of it’s placement.
