Blarney Horses

Blarney Horses Three horses appeared in a field close to Blarney village about a week ago. At first, a mare, her foal and another horse were there, but the mare is gone now and three young looking animals are in residence. I took this photo one morning a few days ago. One of the horses […]

Little Plane Flying High

Little Plane Flying High Just before I got in the car to drive home I looked up.

Yellow Lines

Yellow Lines A different viewpoint on Drawbridge Street, Cork. Yes, I do get funny looks as I crouch or lie in the gutter taking photographs.

Abandoned Train Station

Abandoned Train Station In Killeagh, East Cork, there’s an abandoned train station from I don’t know how long ago. According to Wikidepia it’s unlikely that the station will be restored because there isn’t enough demand. The Cork-Midleton line will however open by 2008. While researching this post I found out that the town of Killeagh […]

Dancing in the street

Dancing in the street All by himself, but he was enjoying the band that were playing a few feet away!

Ruby on the beach

Ruby on the beach Ruby, a Springer Spaniel we met last year in Bunnyconnellan, is still down in Myrtleville! Her owner must be living down there somewhere. We threw a stick for her a few times and then walked over to Fennell’s Bay and she followed us with her tail wagging! It was a pleasure […]

A Crowd Pleaser

A Crowd Pleaser More mono cycle madness on St. Patrick Street! This is near the end of his act. The crowd really enjoyed his show! Shot during the St. Patrick’s Festival 2006 in Cork.

Fade to white

Fade to white A building on South Wabash, Chicago. I was on my way to Central Camera and just loved the leading lines when I looked up! I debated with myself about removing the building on the right but left it in for context. Wabash runs parallel with State Street but is much narrower and […]

On the beach at Youghal

On the beach at Youghal Last weekend we visited Youghal in Co. Cork. I haven’t been on the beach there for years and I had quite forgotten how big it is! It was nice for a walk, but we were frozen from the cold wind. I was just in town. Big Brother were supposed to […]

A Virgin in Cork

A Virgin in Cork Taken outside the Virgin Megastore on the Grand Parade Cork. People use this area to meet all the time so there’s always a good crowd. The building behind me was the location of the Queen’s Old Castle shopping center which was named for Queen Victoria.

Stop! The Birds!

Stop! The Birds! Street lighting and STOP sign pictured on the quays just up from here last Saturday. I wanted to make the stop sign jump out a bit more but didn’t want to force it too much. I do like the leading lines the guide the eye to the top of the pole! And […]

Round Tower through Window

Round Tower through Window The round tower at Glendalough as seen through a window of the nearby ruins of a church.

Glendalough Lower Lake

Glendalough Lower Lake Glendalough derives it’s name from the Irish name for the area, “Gleann Da Loch” which roughly translates as “glen of the two lakes”. It was a cold enough day so we only got a good look at the lower lake, but I’m looking forward to visiting again!

Glendalough Round Tower

Glendalough Round Tower A Christian graveyard lies at the base of the round tower at Glendalough. Here’s a detail of a gravestone with the tower in the background. Looking around, we saw graves from the 19th century, but I’m positive there are older graves. Way back in 2004, I took some shots of the round […]
