The Ghosts of Debenhams

Looks deserted doesn’t it? I shot this photo around 10am this morning with bustling traffic, pedestrians walking each direction, a girl on her phone standing in the entrance to Debenhams looking around. People waiting at the bus stop even.

Where are they gone? By taking around 20 shots of this scene and averaging out the differences all that was left was the building behind and some slight blurring around the bus stop.

Another one I shot of Brown Thomas didn’t work quite so well because I was using the bus stop as a DIY tripod and my camera moved during each frame but I do like the odd fuzzy feel of this image.

Michael O’Regan and a Customer

Michael O’Regan is a well known sight on St. Patrick Street, Cork, selling the Evening Echo for over forty years from a couple of spots on the street.
Ten years ago I took a photo of him and promised I’d make a print for him. It took some time but last weekend I handed him a large print of that same photo. He was delighted, and posed for another photo along with a customer who had just bought a paper off him!

Humour on the street

Humour on the Street

Humour on the street was the subject of the latest Cork Street Photography Meetup. While I didn’t actually meet any of the group in town as I was with my son I did get a few photos, and one qualifies as humorous. :)

Caught in the Rain

Rain, sleet and snow fell in the space of five minutes a week ago during the Cork Streetphotography photowalk. These lads were caught in the middle of it on St. Patrick’s Street.
