Co. Cork Cemetery

Co. Cork Cemetery A graveyard in Co. Cork attracted my attention last summer while walking with Oscar down a small road. I didn’t go in but I got a few nice shots from over the cemetery gate. This is a the result of sandwiching two versions of this image together. One is overexposed and the […]

Kilbrittain 6 miles

Kilbrittain 6 miles A sign points to Kilbrittain in Co. Cork near the beach at Garrettstown. Has it been 2 years already Ryan? My Flickr account expires in February 2008 so I have a bit more time on my hands. It’s been well worth it however!

45 on the Golden Gate

45 on the Golden Gate The posted speed limit for the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco is 45mph but good luck to anyone who managed to reach that speed! Traffic crawled the day we were there and I suspect that’s the norm. Shot from the car as we drove along. Thanks Andy for driving that […]

Looking up at Union Square

Looking up at Union Square A festival or competition was being held on the beautiful August day we wandered through Union Square, San Francisco. It provided ample inspiration for photos although we didn’t linger long because we wanted to see more of the city. The statue pictured is in the center of the Square and, […]

San Francisco Tourists

San Francisco Tourists Tourists stopped on the sidewalk off Union Square in San Francisco last summer. Despite the city’s reputation for fog the day was sunny and clear. I had a great time doing some street photography of course!

Blue skies contrail and clouds

Blue skies contrail and clouds A wall of the Beamish and Crawford Brewery blocks the sun in this shot taken on South Main Street, Cork. Blue skies are great for sun worshippers but photographers don’t like them. It’s always better to have some cloud or interest in the sky. The fluffier and more solid the […]

Daisies in the ruins

Daisies in the ruins Boarded up windows, grey walls, overgrown vegetation. It can only be an Irish hospital right? This is the final picture in my Old Hospital series. Beautiful – Lough Gill, 2

Letters only

Letters only The post box at Garretstown, Co. Cork pictured last year but in pretty much the same condition yesterday when we drove past on the way home. I love the worn texture of the paint! I like this: Headphoneland

Father and son in the square

Father and son in the square A father and his offspring walk about after the parade on St. Patrick’s Day in Cork this year. Normally this is a busy junction but it was closed off for a few hours to make way for the festivities. Patrick’s Street can be seen in the background with the […]

A tour of Cork University Hospital

A tour of Cork University Hospital A few days ago my wife Jacinta and I were invited to tour the new maternity wing of Cork University Hospital. It’s due to open officially on March 24, only a few days away now! I asked the very pleasant security guard if I could take any photos but […]

The patient springer spaniels

The patient springer spaniels Pictured outside Tesco shopping center in Douglas, Cork last year. These springer spaniels waited patiently for their owner to come out of the shops.

Shadows of prison and freedom

Shadows of prison and freedom A crow flies off into the freedom of the air with a crumb of bread he found on the pavement. The railings of nearby houses are like those of a prison keeping humans in and trapped and closed off. Who is free?

Clouds over the Lough

Clouds over the Lough Clouds gather and block out the sun over the Lough in Cork last year. The display was beautiful as light wispy clouds and dark brooding rain clouds skirted across the sky. The sun made one final effort to shine, but the clouds won out and it started to rain moments later.

Standing free

Standing free Shot down in Garretstown Beach last year. Connectivity continues to be a problem so this will be short.

The soaking wet happy springer spaniel

The soaking wet happy springer spaniel This is another photo of Ruby, a springer spaniel that lives in Myrtleville. This time she followed us over to Fennell’s Bay where she dashed off into the shallows after stones. She was deliriously happy! Unfortunately the same could not be said for a group of teenagers higher up […]
