Red Red Fruit

Red Red Fruit

Red fruit from a tree in the grounds of Blarney Castle. I have no idea what tree they come from as the name plate on the trunk is far below the wall where I photographed them.

I’ll update the post when I find out!

I found out that they’re called “Cornus kousa” thanks to Adam Whitburn who works in the gardens.

It’s Cornus kousa. Some people call it the Szechuan strawberry although it certainly doesn’t taste like one!

Tullagh Cemetery at Sunset

Tullagh Cemetery at Sunset

Tullagh Cemetery in Baltimore, Co Cork, Ireland is just a field away from the excellent Casey’s Hotel where we spent the last week. I went down there one evening to shoot a couple of half capsized trawlers in the bay when I turned around and saw some of the headstones silhouetted against the setting sun.

I went searching online and found that 3 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-1918 war were in this graveyard.

Red and White Flowers

Colourful red and white flowers in the doorway of Supervalu in Blarney. I half thought about posting Damien’s picture from yesterday’s get together, especially after what lexia said but that’d be too cruel!

The writing’s on the wall for Heineken

Heineken logo silhouette on the ground outside a cafe in Kinsale on a very bright sunny day some time back.

If you’re wondering, the image above mirrored, otherwise the logo would be backwards!
