St Patrick’s Street

The Girls of Cork City

The Girls of Cork City Two girls standing at the edge of a crowd on Patrick’s Street, Cork. A quick search for irish cork girls hoops earrings led me to the answers.com page on scanger. Judging by the definition of both male and female clothing, there are plenty of them about! Stereotypical Appearance * Very […]

Girl and the bear

Girl and the bear A young girl greets a bear on Patrick’s Street, Cork. Shopping is in full swing but it’s the small things like the smile of a child that bring light to the world.

I look good!

I look good! A street performer from Cork Circus, a street theatre company, poses for a photo on Patrick’s Street, Cork. That reminds me, I must email him the URL of this blog as he was interested in photos!

Shopping Expressions

Shopping Expressions Worried looks accompany the average male during the Christmas shopping season. While this was taken at the end of October I bet that young man is still walking around with the same harried look. My quest for a graphics tablet is complete. The Wacom Graphire4 arrived yesterday from Pixmania. As I promised to […]

The anxious look

The anxious look A young woman looks around anxiously in the crowd filled St. Patrick’s Street before she crosses at the traffic lights. I was standing on one of the new marble blocks shooting a scene across the road when I saw the gathering crowd below me at the traffic lights. I saw the glance […]

Little Communion Girl

Little Communion Girl A girl dressed in a communion dress and veil walks with her mother through the crowds on St. Patrick’s Street Cork on Saturday. Dressed as she is, she looks almost lost but the crowd parted way for her and her parents. I don’t know why she was dressed like that. First Communion […]

Go faster! Go faster!

Go faster! Go faster! A young girl in a buggy leans forward as her mother pushes her along St. Patrick’s Street, Cork. Looks like her mother was busy shopping in Penney’s and elsewhere so I’m sure she’ll look forward to getting home! I like this: This Flight Tonight, and make sure you download the linked […]

Girls Talking

Girls Talking Girls seated on the side of the pavement and on the road deep in conversation at the Ceili Mor in Cork a few weeks ago. Despite the noise of people dancing, an announcer and music playing I think a meaningful discussion was had! Looks like I’ve made it. One of my photos was […]

Keep a lookout

Keep a lookout A father and two sons on St. Patrick’s Street, Cork. I presume they’re waiting for someone from what I heard of the dad talking on his phone as I passed. Blown out details are on purpose to give it a slightly edgier effect. Hope you like it!

A pint of beer and a newspaper

A pint of beer and a newspaper Sometimes it’s good to chill out, relax and step out of the rat-race, even for a few moments. This scene was made on St. Patrick’s Street outside Le Chateau, a bar with seating in front of the building as most places do these days because of the smoking […]

Press the button and walk

Press the button and walk A pedestrian traffic light on St. Patrick’s Street, Cork. The green man is strutting his stuff and people are walking across. Does anyone else have a dislike for the design of this button? Sure, there’s a big arrow pointing to a large white dot, but it took several years for […]

Pleased to meet you!

Pleased to meet you! A child greets one of the onlookers at the Cork Folk Festival after the “Christ Restoration Ministries Gospel Choir” have sung and danced. There were lots of kids about and they were all having a great time! I love this photo because the parents look so happy, kids are drinking their […]

Balloon Boy

Balloon Boy A boy is dragged by his mother up St. Patrick’s Street at the Ceili Mor. He was playing with a balloon by punching it continually. I saw him approach and as luck would have it, err, I mean, I quickly composed this shot. I love the expression on his face and I’m very […]

The road to Ceili

The road to Ceili People stroll along the closed off St. Patrick’s Street to the Ceili Mor. Technique: I had to rotate the photo and crop it a small bit to get a straighter horizon, then some dodge/burn to bring out the contrast, and fired off the GIMP lomo plugin that creates two layers – […]

ESB – Broadband – Eircom

ESB – Broadband – Eircom Power, Internet, Telephone. The combination of critical services that keeps my job going. When they work we don’t care but failure in even one is disastrous. Pictured on St. Patrick’s Street while I was kneeling down and preparing to change lens. Anyone know which shop this was taken in front […]
