If accompanied by a cigarette, any kind of good food isn’t going to help your increased risk of getting cancer from smoking.
Shot on Carey’s Lane a few weeks ago. The girl who left the cigarettes came back a moment after I took this shot. Have you noticed that more women smoke than men? Is that really the case?

I made this image of the guy in the hat on Patrick’s Street last February and I knew I had a great street shot. I have no idea what those people in the car are doing but they left shortly after.
Link love: Donal has a great portrait of some of the kids from his trip to Lesotho.
On her break, she lights up a cigarette to relax. Who did she see?
The Magnum Blog has been running for a few weeks. I blogged the original opening of the site ages ago, but it wasn’t ready for prime time and it made it’s debut a short while ago. A few days ago, A faked portrait of my generation explored some of the issues surrounding street photography. A legal case in Quebec in effect made street photography illegal in Canada.
Here in Ireland, photographers do have the right to photograph people, but if the subjects have an expectation of privacy then you’re not allowed photograph them. That could include a couple talking on the street. That’s only the opinion of our Minister For Justice but unfortunately many of my street photos could be on shaky ground if that really was what the law said.
Oh, another photo of this girl tomorrow!
Outside the FM Store, St. Patrick Street Cork. I was walking past when I spotted this scene unfold. I didn’t even see the pipe in the old man’s hand until later, but I was very happy with what came out. If only that girl had turned around.
The FM Store is that noisy place at the end of the street where Irish traditional or similar music blares out. The ESB Broadband Eircom picture I posted a while back is right behind where that old man is standing.
Thankfully I wasn’t affected by the Flickr outage. I was asleep while it all happened!
Since the smoking ban was implemented people can’t smoke in pubs which drives them on to the streets where the pub owner may have some street furniture out for their convenience. No such luck on North Main Street for this man. He’s enjoying his cigarette while sitting on an electricity junction box marked clearly “DANGER Keep Away”.
