Beaty Treatment at The Body Shop

Beauty Treatment at The Body Shop

I’m still recovering after the photowalk yesterday! I took a quick look through my photos this evening and decided I’m not over the moon about any of them. A couple are ok, but there’s that little critical part of my mind saying, “crap, crap, crap, blah, ‘s ok, focus is off, boring, what were you […]

Emma

Emma, a small alley somewhere in San Francisco. Shot three years ago while on a photowalk around the city. Only 9 places left for the photowalk tomorrow. I emailed everyone today. Did you get your email?

Cork City Hall

Cork City Hall, on the banks of the River Lee. Shot on the same night as yesterday’s shot of Gardner House. Also not the first time I’ve posted a photo of City Hall! Only 9 places left for the photowalk. Unfortunately the weather forecast for Saturday is bad so umbrellas and raincoats are a must. […]

Gardner House

Gardner House

As I mentioned already in my Polish Coal post, my dad worked in Suttons Coals for years. Gardner House on the South Mall in Cork used to be called Suttons House but then coal’s fortunes changed. Oil and gas became more popular. Legislation banned any coal other than smokeless coal from urban areas and the […]

O'Briens Sandwich Bar

O’Briens Sandwich Bar

“O’Briens’ HQ placed in examinership” according to this news report yesterday. This is their fairly recently opened (and more recently closed) “sandwich bar” on Oliver Plunkett Street here in Cork. Loved their Triple Decker, even if it was a little pricey. Hope the company survives. Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 21mm ISO […]

Stopped by a fag

A man stops to light his cigarette while holding a mobile phone to his ear. Who said men can’t multi-task eh?

Little Fluffy Clouds

Little Fluffy Clouds

Clouds drift over the River Lee across from Blackrock Village about a week ago. I’m trying out the preview of Bibble 5 Pro at the moment. Great DAM features, although it is starting to slow down after importing about 90,000 images and it’s reading from an external USB 2.0 drive. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS […]

Waterford Glass

Waterford Glass

It’s funny the things that catch your eye. On a corner on Patrick’s Street there are these 3 signs: “Seiko”, “Waterford Glass” and “HMV”. Aperture ƒ/10 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/250s

Haircut, pint and hangover pills

So, start off in the College of Hairdressing to tighten up that stylish hair of yours, then off to the “Hi B” for a pint (but turn your mobile phone off!) and then downstairs to Minihan’s Pharmacy for the Alkazelser. Actually, I don’t like the Hi B. Any pub owner who verbally attacks his customers […]

The Big Slide

In Fitzgerald’s Park a week ago the Street Performance World Championship 2009 brought the crowds to the park. This multi story slide was one of the main attractions. Huge long queue for it though. Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/200s
