Looking out for the kids

Looking out for the kids A wary father carries his son on his shoulder at the Ceili Mor as his photo is taken on St. Patrick’s Street last weekend. Looks like his passenger is enjoying the festival! I like this: State of Emergency – pictures from Vogue of models and Police. They’re scanned from Vogue […]

Girls dancing on the street

Girls dancing on the street People of all ages joined in the fun dancing on St. Patrick’s Street last weekend at the Ceili Mor, but there was a noticeable lack of male participation. Any man out there had his pick of the women! Are guys too shy, or are women better dancers? Me? I was […]

Pure joy! A child on drums!

Pure joy! A child on drums! Can you imagine the noise? Well, don’t worry, it was in the middle of the street! A child took control of the drums while the adults took a break during the Cork Folk Festival. From the programme I guess the group singing and dancing with accompanied drums and music […]

All the fun of the Ceili Mor

All the fun of the Ceili Mor The Ceili Mor on St. Patrick’s Street, Cork, last weekend. Last year the Ceili Mor attracted 8,371 people who broke the world record for the largest Irish dancing event! This year was a more modest event but still the people showed up and joined in, slowly at first, […]

Princess Jacinta

The Yellow Helmet

The Yellow Helmet A father picks up the yellow helmet dropped by his son in front of the Body Shop on Patrick’s Street, Cork last Saturday. I was sitting on one of the marble blocks that pass as street furniture on our main thoroughfare. I had my camera ready to shoot when I saw them […]

Old Bike

Old Bike Bikes are still used as a means of transport, somehow. I think people are probably a little crazy to cycle into town these days because of the huge increase in traffic but some hearty souls will continue to do so! I cross-processed this to add the brown/purle tint.

Big Jumper

Big Jumper It wasn’t exactly cold, or warm either but this gentleman must have been more than a little warm wearing a big jumper like that!

Tom Murphy Men’s Wear

Tom Murphy Men’s Wear Dermot Fagan with a selection of waist coats We returned my wedding suit yesterday to Tom Murphy Men’s Wear and Dress Hire Service. Irish people love to complain about the shoddy service they receive when shopping but rarely do they shout about a great shopping experience when helpful and enthusiastic staff […]

The Craft Fair is now on!

The Craft Fair is now on! A craft fair was recently held in the Unitarian Church on Prince’s Street. I have been dying to get into the building and see what it’s like on the inside for ages so we jumped at the chance. We like visiting these fairs too so it was doubly good. […]

A boy on St. Patrick’s Street

A boy on St. Patrick’s Street Just outside Boots he stopped in front of me, what could I do but make this image? He was waiting for his parents to catch up but I liked the contrast between him and the busy world around him. He rejoined that world moments later. A moment in time.

Dancing in the street

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