The Old Rocking Chair

The Old Rocking Chair

Old? Probably not. A quite new rocking chair outside a shop in Killrush, Co Clare back in April 2009. Photographed while we were on holiday and we were lucky to have a beautiful day. Unfortunately not every day was good but we made the best of it! Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length […]

One Eye Oscar

One Eye Oscar!

Shih Tzu dogs need a lot of grooming and Oscar is no exception. This is him in the snow on Christmas Day last year. Good thing he had all that fur as it was freezing! Aperture ƒ/10 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 88mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/320s

Romanes Eunt Domus

Romanes Eunt Domus

Romans go home! No! It’s “Romani ite Domum”! Ah, the Life of Brian. What a film. Great fun that was. At a military show in Cork City Gaol last year we saw a display of Roman Legions fighting and a small history lesson in the life and times back then. It was a fascinating display […]

A Cup

A Cup among the the rocks

The smooth uniform texture of a cup contrasted with the rough and weathered stones of a wall on Cape Clear Island. Somewhere near where I took the previous shot I saw this cup at the side of the road and was struck by the oddness of it’s placement. Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal […]

Cape Clear Road

Cape Clear Road

A view of the main road on Cape Clear Island, a small island off the coast of west Cork. I’ve walked this road many times but never noticed that you can see the Baltimore Beacon from here until I took this photo… Aperture ƒ/7.1 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 200mm ISO 100 Shutter speed […]

Church is this direction. A sign points towards the Catholic church on Cape Clear Island, off the coast of Co Cork, Ireland. After taking photos with the “Retro Camera” app on my phone in square format I decided I’d try the same with my DSLR photos. I copied my “copyright frame” script (for the GIMP) […]

Waves Crash

Waves Crash

Waves crash into the sea wall at Garrettstown Beach, Co Cork a few weeks ago. Beautiful day for a trip down there and the wind blew the sea into violent waves pounding the man made obstructions on shore. Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 200mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/400s

The Truman House

The Truman House

The Truman Show was filmed in the town of Seaside in Florida way back in 1998. Feeling old now? This is the house where they filmed interior shots of Truman’s home. You’ll recognise scenes from the film if you visit the town, but trees and bushes are a bit more overgrown now. Anyway, Automattic went […]

St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Blarney

I took part in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade here in Blarney today along with my son and wife. We walked with the Community Preschool group and I am utterly amazed at the stamina of young kids! Little 3 and 4 year olds walked around Blarney and still had energy left to play with bubbles […]
