While walking back to the car after the Cobh Rambler’s game a few weeks ago I made this picture of a sign on the road.
I find it strange that out of the 600-odd images I took that day, this is the first image I’ve uploaded..
The buildings of the Grand Parade in Cork face away from the setting sung on a cold February afternoon earlier this year. Cork bathes in the frosty sunlight.
This image was of course made of two images, one for the sky and one for the city. It was handheld and shot using the bracketing function (AEB) on the Canon 20D. The image isn’t perfect. My hand moved between frames but it’s only noticeable at the horizon if you look carefully.
I wonder if the teenager wearing this hoodie realised the irony of wearing a garment decorated with cassette images, a piece of technology he may not ever have used. The Wikipedia page has a lot more to say on the subject.
This was shot outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street, Cork while I wheeled Adam around in his buggy.
Two girls stop to talk on Patrick’s Street, Cork. That bag looks uncomfortable. What do women put in their bags?
The Internet Cafe is that way.
Sign is on The South Mall in Cork.
PS. GIMP 2.4.1 was released yesterday. It’s a bugfix release!
The waves crash on to the beach at Couminole on Slea Head, Co. Kerry.
Standing where I was when I took this image was scary. Huge waves lifting up water to head height before crashing down mere feet in front of me.
Is that Skellig Michael in the background?
Kerry were still celebrating their win in the All Ireland when we stayed in Dingle a few weeks back and flags were flying everywhere!
Shadows from the broken clouds above play over the landscape on Slea Head in Co. Kerry. Every moment was a different photo until the rain eventually caught up with us!
A Halloween Pumpkin Head or Jack-o’-lantern stares off at the community hall where Mallow Camera Club meet each Monday.
I spotted the head after our last meeting. It’s hand-held in low light so I had to pump up the ISO to get a steady shot.
