While walking back to the car after the Cobh Rambler’s game a few weeks ago I made this picture of a sign on the road.
I find it strange that out of the 600-odd images I took that day, this is the first image I’ve uploaded..
Lovely bright daffodils to brighten up your gloomy November Monday morning!
This was taken way back on March 18th this year on the same day I shot these daffodils! The image has been sitting in my WIP folder for months but after my gimp lomo post I decided to post this in a larger format.
Post processing: Auto-levels, gimp lomo and save. Resized version has been sharpened and I could have done more with the dodge and burn tool to bring out the detail in the flowers but this will have to do.
The buildings of the Grand Parade in Cork face away from the setting sung on a cold February afternoon earlier this year. Cork bathes in the frosty sunlight.
This image was of course made of two images, one for the sky and one for the city. It was handheld and shot using the bracketing function (AEB) on the Canon 20D. The image isn’t perfect. My hand moved between frames but it’s only noticeable at the horizon if you look carefully.
The Internet Cafe is that way.
Sign is on The South Mall in Cork.
PS. GIMP 2.4.1 was released yesterday. It’s a bugfix release!
The waves crash on to the beach at Couminole on Slea Head, Co. Kerry.
Standing where I was when I took this image was scary. Huge waves lifting up water to head height before crashing down mere feet in front of me.
Is that Skellig Michael in the background?
Kerry were still celebrating their win in the All Ireland when we stayed in Dingle a few weeks back and flags were flying everywhere!
Shadows from the broken clouds above play over the landscape on Slea Head in Co. Kerry. Every moment was a different photo until the rain eventually caught up with us!
The old Dunnes Stores on Patrick’s Street is now only a shadow of it’s former self. All that remains of the building is the front facade and a small portion of the side walls.
Construction work on the Paul Street development has levelled most of the back buildings in a square block, exposing the internals of other buildings to the elements.
I spotted photos hanging on the rear wall of a room left open to the elements after demolition. Surreal!
If any business person from Acadamy Street is reading this, can I go to the top of your building and shoot the construction site from on-high? Please!

Shot using a fairly high ISO but bicubic resizing smudges the noise away!
