The City of San Francisco

San Francisco as seen from the hills surrounding the City. I took this back in August 2006.

Can you tell yet that I merged a few of my work directories after doing some house keeping work on my photo archive?

Thanks to Niall Kennedy for driving us up there!

Chains of property

Chains line the road outside the entrance to the private manor next to Blarney Castle.

Girl on dad’s shoulders

A small girl sits on (I presume) her dad’s shoulders on Patrick’s Street. In the background is the Savoy Shopping Center, and of course the building side behind Dunnes is clearly visible in the scaffolding supports to the far left.

Traffic by the Elysian

Traffic stops at the lights by the building site of the Elysian. I passed by the other side of it, past the low rise section of the building and it towers over the street.
It’s massive!

Cork Harbour from Curabinny

This is the small quay at Currabinny across the water from Crosshaven in Cork Harbour.

As today was such an awful day with driving rain, sleet and ice I think a nice calm photo was in order. This was taken in April last year.

I’m travelling soon. I realised yesterday that I may not have my Sigma 10-20 lens to bring with me. Boo!

Holiday Caravan

A holiday caravan near a beach on the Dingle Peninsula.

This caravan has been in the same spot for at least the last 2 years, and probably longer. I wanted to shoot it for quite a while but it wasn’t until I converted this shot to b/w that I was happy with it.

I want real spam!

Oh, delicious spam! How I love you so! I want to spread you on sandwiches and lick the knife clean! Oh Yum!

Or not. I’ve never tasted the edible variety of spam, but like everyone else online I’ve had my fair share of spam emails, comments and blogs.

This is the real spam, made by Hormel. I spotted it in a store in San Francisco and snapped a quick shot of the aisle. Unfortunately the light was bad but, if you’ve never come across it before, it’s a novelty worth posting, right?

Current spam stats:
1. Inphotos: 8510
2. Holy Shmoly!: 21689
3. Gmail: 2176

Spam is here to stay.

Slow down in 2008

I’m going to slow down this year. I’ve been trying to keep up with everyone else, moving without thinking, on auto pilot sometimes.

I blog too fast. There! I’ve said it. I tried to post here, to Holy Shmoly!, to The Funny Video Blog every day but there’s only so much one man can do.

Instead, this blog will of course be updated every day, Holy Shmoly will be updated at most 3 times a week, and I’ll try to post one funny video a week.

Then I’ll have time to play with my son, watch him discover the world and enjoy the great times.

Ryan – thank you for the recommendation and a happy new year to you too!

The hippiest bus

A strange multi-coloured bus waiting at the lights in downtown San Francisco last summer.

Yes, those are horns on the roof. Does anyone know anything about it? A search for “EFT 922”, it’s registration plate, turns up nothing useful.
