Potted Flowers

Potted Flowers

Flowers in a garden centre, probably the one out in Inniscarra. In the new year I’m sorely tempted to change the posting frequency on this blog from daily to every third day. Blogging should bring pleasure and be a means of expressing oneself while stimulating your audience and improving oneself. I have so little time […]

Bars Bars Bars

Bars Bars Bars

Supporting bars criss cross the arm of a crane on Cork’s Docklands in 2005. Probably the same crane I posted a few days ago. Aperture ƒ/3.5 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 24mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/2000s

Endangered Species

Endangered Species

Not so long ago these metal edifices defined the skyline in Cork and other Irish cities. They’re all gone in Cork now, but there’s still one left in Killarney, County Kerry. I hear tourists are taking photos of them now.. Aperture ƒ/13 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 24mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/250s

F211 – Fregatte Köln

The Fregatte Köln docked in Cork Harbour in 2005. Glorious day for a photowalk!

Priestman

Priestman

Priestman are, or at least were, a brand of crane and excavator manufactured up until possibly the late 1990s. They have a long history according to this page. I found the logo above on a crane on the docks in Cork Harbour back in 2005. It’s probably still there! The Priestman story began when William […]

Heineken. ’nuff said! Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 200mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/400s

Sean O Connors Dental Laboratory

Sean O Connor’s Dental Laboratory

I never noticed this sign for a dental laboratory on Castle Street before. Maybe it’s the large gaping hole in the streetscape next to it that caught my eye? It must be a really old sign, that phone number had a “4″ prefix added to it many years ago. Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D […]

Derelict and red brick

Derelict and red brick

A long unused, derelict and run down red brick building on the Old Youghal Road. This was shot last September, first time I’d been up around this area in a few years. Nothing much had changed in all those years. Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 162mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/640s

Unlock the Church

The side gate to SS Peter and Paul’s Church in Cork City remains open during the day. Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/40s

CELTIC FIShER

The Celtic Fisher, out of Tralee, was docked in Dingle Harbour in early November.

St Mary’s Cathedral, Killarney

St Mary’s Cathedral, Killarney in the background. We walked around the town a few weeks back but I didn’t have time to get down to the Cathedral this time. Still impressive, even from this distance. I wonder if “Tim O’Brien & Sons Furniture Carpets” is online anywhere?

The Historic COD Ranch

The Historic C.O.D Ranch

The Historic C.O.D Ranch outside Oracle in Arizona where Automattic held a meetup in January 2008. Winter in the desert is mostly pleasant, during the day. At night it was freezing! Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 22mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s
