Sears Tower and Flagpole

Sears Tower and Flagpole Sears Tower in Chicago and it’s reflection in a flagpole on the grounds of the building. I love the light and shadows in this image and the mirror image of the reflection.

A Golden Glow over Cobh

A Golden Glow over Cobh Last night we went down to Cobh to walk around and lucky for us the rain disappeared as we approached the town! It was strange. There was lots of localised rain yesterday. Blarney was mostly dry, the roads were dry as we drove down but as soon as we crossed […]

Joyce and the Spire

Joyce and the Spire James Joyce, forever forced to look upon the Spire on O’Connell Street Dublin. Here’s a humorous look at the names of the statues and monuments in Dublin. I had heard that the Spire was nicknamed the “Stiletto in the Ghetto”, but I hadn’t heard it called, “North Pole”! Overhead wires destroy […]

Reflection on the Spire

Reflection on the Spire O’Connell Street in Dublin is reflected in the polished surface of the Spire. A young teenager leans on the edifice in the shade away from the glaring sun. This was inspired by a shot I saw one another photoblog, can’t remember which one now. Does anyone know the image I’m talking […]

Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet

Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet A Boeing 747 is readied for another flight, with hand luggage on board. This is the plane that flew me to London Heathrow from San Francisco. I shot the photo through the plate glass of the departures lounge. It was converted to b/w and dodged/burned afterwards. The panoramic format works really […]

Cross in the sky

Cross in the sky I noticed this cross in the sky while walking around Dublin a few weeks ago. When I saw a church I had to make this shot and I’m quite happy with the way it came out!

Ferry Building’s Clock Tower

Ferry Building’s Clock Tower The clock tower of the Ferry Buildings, San Francisco. We had a pre Wordcamp dinner with lots of people in Taylor’s Automatic Refresher. I was glad to meet many people for the first time, among them Niall Kennedy, Scott Beale, Michelle Clay and Safire. I guess giving me business cards is […]

Purple Sky

Purple Sky (print) After shooting the Tenacious I looked behind me and smiled as I saw a great reflection of the beautiful sky on this car. Wisps of cloud filtered the sun momentarily as I captured this image and a bit of post-processing helped to make the reflection stand out!
