The Goat is Dead

The Goat is Dead In my younger days when I was out on the town on a Friday or Saturday night with the rest of the crowd, “The Goat Broke Loose” was an occasional watering hole for me and my friends. It started out well, with a good mix of customers, although if memory serves […]

The Lady Smiles

The Lady Smiles On her lunch break she smiles instead of smoking, at least for a moment. This is the second and final image of the Lady on her break series. If you look very carefully at the window you’ll see my face, my hand, and the back of Jacinta’s head as we walked past. […]

The Lady smokes

The Lady smokes On her break, she lights up a cigarette to relax. Who did she see? The Magnum Blog has been running for a few weeks. I blogged the original opening of the site ages ago, but it wasn’t ready for prime time and it made it’s debut a short while ago. A few […]

The Black Surfer

The Black Surfer A surfer rides the waves at Garretstown in early January this year. I’m not sure how many were out there but we talked to one wet and cold looking one when he came out of the water and he told us they had been there for a few hours. The heavens opened […]

Ireland V England at Croke Park

Ireland V England at Croke Park Ireland played England in rugby at Croke Park yesterday, and Ireland won, 43 points to 13! This was an historic occasion. Landsowne Road, where rugby and soccer matches are normally played is being renovated. Croke Park is the headquarters of the GAA, the native Irish sports of football and […]

The shadows have it all

The shadows have it all Sometimes it’s the shadows that are the focus of my camera rather than the people in it.

Escalator Moments

Escalator Moments A one second exposure captures the movement through time of the escalator in Nikeworld San Francisco last August. This is one of a series of shots, including a few of Mark and Andy although I think this is the most dramatic of them. I wasn’t going to post this at all except that […]

Girl reflecting on bus

Girl reflecting on bus Waiting at the traffic lights, the camera can still see you, even if it’s not pointed in your direction. Those are the buildings of the Grand Parade in Cork behind her.

Mom and the girls

Mom and the girls A mother and her daughters on St. Patrick Street, Cork last year. Look carefully in the window. Can you see what time of year it was?

Man and pipe at the FM Store

Man and pipe at the FM Store Outside the FM Store, St. Patrick Street Cork. I was walking past when I spotted this scene unfold. I didn’t even see the pipe in the old man’s hand until later, but I was very happy with what came out. If only that girl had turned around. The […]

Never mind the bollocks

Never mind the bollocks A Sex Pistols fan on his bike last April. This was taken on Washington Street, Cork while waiting for the street lights to change. I was walking, not in a car! PS. Mallow Camera Club did really well yesterday at the SACC competition! The club won the event outright and also […]

A kiss at Finn’s Corner

A kiss at O’Neills Corner A kissing couple outside Finn’s clothing store on the corner of Grand Parade and Washington Street, Cork. This was way back in August last year when temperatures were a little higher than they are now. Psychedelic colouring comes from the “soft light” plasma layer I plastered on top of the […]

Waves crash on the tyre

Waves crash on the tyre A tyre causes waves to crash up and splash over it on the beach at Garretstown in Co. Cork almost a year ago. This picture languished in my archives until last weekend when I frantically looked about for “Sea” releated material for theme night at the camera club! If you’re […]

I lost my head

I lost my head All that remains from a fishing trip to Cobh. I discovered this fish’s head while walking about on the pier in Cobh during the month of August last year. At that time of year the mackerel chase the sprat into Cork Harbour and provide a bountiful catch for local fishermen. Many […]

Boats at the quay

Boats at the quay Small boats or dingies tied up at the pier in Ballycotton, Co. Cork. I was looking straight down when I shot this and had to crop out a tiny bit off the bottom where the pier was. The tide was way out, I expect the owners of these small boats weren’t […]
