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!
Christmas decorations on high Christmas decorations on Paul Street, Cork a few days before Christmas Day last year. Hand held, and I hoped to get a “normal” straight shot but it’s hard to crouch down while wearing a jacket and pushing a buggy so it’s lopsided. I prefer it that way! Conversion to b/w I […]
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 […]
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.

Evening sky over Cork City Darkness descends on the City of Cork and the lights of the Grand Parade spill from the windows. In the background is St. Finbarr’s Cathedral and the rest of the urban environment heading out west. This image is quite similar to another Grand Parade shot from about a month ago. […]
Cork Landmarks In this one single image are pictured several landmark buildings in Cork City: The bell tower of St. Anne’s Church, or Shandon Bells as it’s commonly known as. The North Cathedral can be glimpsed in the background. Part of SS Peter & Paul’s Church off Patrick Street in the foreground, and the distinctive […]
You’re a star So that’s what happens to reality tv show judges when they retire. They go off to Dingle and work on a trawler! In the background is an old burned out trawler that has been tied up to the quay in Dingle for at least the last 18 months. I have photos of […]
