Family at the beach

Family at the beach Dad carries the forgotten kite, daughter walks through the water and mom basks in the sun of a glorious September afternoon at Inch Strand, Co. Kerry. Tonight is theme night at the camera club. My theme is “The sea” so I went through my archives yesterday choosing suitable photos. This will […]

Cupid’s Arrow and the birds

Cupid’s Arrow and the birds Cupid’s Arrow in San Francisco provides an interesting silhouette against the evening sky. If you’ve payed close attention to my photos in the past you might think this is a duplicate of another shot but it’s from a slightly different angle and wider, and I feel stronger because of the […]

Alcatraz Staircase

Alcatraz Staircase A lonely staircase on Alcatraz is off-limtis to tourists but not to the eye of my camera.

Sailing In San Francisco

Cobh at sunset

Cobh at sunset The tide is out in Cobh, Co. Cork while the sun sets in the west casting an orange glow over the water and boats in the harbour. Method This required some work to expose properly. The sky is bright while the harbour, houses and landscape are in shadow. Out with the layers, […]

The gull and the flag

The gull and the flag Two teenagers watch a seagull on the way back from Alcatraz Island in San Francisco. The US flag flutters in the same breeze that keeps the gull aloft, who no doubt is hoping for food from the boat full of tourists. I’m going to be shooting at a fund raising […]

Water Drops in Cobh

Water Drops in Cobh Water drops from a railing in Cobh after a particularly heavy rain early in the day. That day’s shooting in Cobh was quite successful and by the evening there was a beautiful glow from the setting sun. I took these firework photos from a spot on the right of this image. […]

Bay Bridge Reflections

Bay Bridge Reflections Light from the Bay Bridge in San Francsico shimmers in the waters of the harbour. To the left one of the fire fighting boats of the SF Fire Department can be seen. Posting this landmark of San Francisco today as most of the rest of Automattic make their way to Mexico. Here’s […]

Golden Gate Bridge in Fog

Golden Gate Bridge in Fog Tourists on a ferry pass by the fog shrouded Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco Bay. The day was beautiful out near Alcatraz but fog covered the upper reaches of the bridge and I thought would make a pleasing shot. PS. I’m not finished with photos from 2006 by a […]

Footprints in the sand

Footprints in the sand Footprints on a sandy beach on the Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry. The blue sky, fluffy clouds, golden sand and warm breeze are just the tonic for a relaxing break away from it all.

An Fear Marbh

An Fear Marbh An Fear Marbh, an island off the coast of Co. Kerry, Ireland, with the setting sun lighting up the cloud over the Atlantic. “An Fear Marbh” translates as “the dead man” and is so named because of the obvious shape of the island – that of a man lying on his back. […]

Seaside Bubbles

Seaside Bubbles Bubbles in the incoming tide break on the sandy beach at Garretstown about a month ago. I turned this black and white because I love the abstract feel to the bubbles and it makes the grain of the sand beneath more visible. I had to jump up to avoid getting splashed moments later […]

Carefree on the beach

Carefree on the beach Shoes off wandering along the beach, the glow of a setting sun and nothing to do but enjoy the moment. Taken in Garretstown last month on a warm Autumn day.

Pier 38, San Francisco

Pier 38, San Francisco Pier 38 is where True Ventures have their San Francisco office. It was the location of a great post-WordCamp party last August. It was such a beautiful night I had to take a shot of the moon and lights reflecting in the water.

New Johnny T

New Johnny T The boat New Johnny T passed by a pier in San Francisco on the same afternoon this shot was taken. I wonder what happened to Old Johnny T? Welcome Darragh White to the world and congrats to your parents!
