The old town of Quebec

The Old Town of Quebec

Quebec city recently celebrated it’s 400th birthday, making it one of the oldest cities in North America! Here’s part of the tourist area of the older part of town. A lovely walk through a beautiful area.

Wait for me

A pigeon in Cork, somewhere.

I’m in Quebec. It’s raining a bit but hopefully I’ll get out this morning for a look around. Luggage still hasn’t arrived, but someone rang at 2am to say it would be delivered here. Yay.

Cobh in Black and White

A dump of the b/w images I shot in Cobh over the weekend. It was a strictly “stroll around and do nothing” day (so sorry Conor for not calling in!) as Adam was being minded by my sister.

As I said a few days ago, I shot everything in black and white and I’m pleased with the results. From about the shots of the rope on I used RAW+Jpeg but I still prefer the b/w images.

Hope something here takes your fancy!

On the Boardwalk

On the Boardwalk

Phew! What a day! Today we had a great photowalk in Cork. I hesitate to say this, but I think it was probably the most enjoyable photowalk I’ve ever been on.

We started out in the Montenotte Hotel, with tea and scones and a chat. After refreshments we headed up on the roof for a stunning view of Cork City and the Blackrock side of the suburbs. I’ve never seen into Pairc Ui Chaoimh from above like that before!

Soon after we headed down to Dillon’s Cross, and on down Summerhill. Halfway down we took a detour here where we got splendid views of the train station and Julia, the new Swansea Cork Ferry that will operate from March next year.

Snapping all the way, we headed into town and on to the Bar and Grill on the Boardwalk, pictured above. That’s my son Adam, who’s contemplating if he should go in, or stay outside where he can run around. Hungry dad won out in the end and had a delicious burger.

I had to leave after lunch, but four lucky photographers went out on the speedboat and by at least one account it was well worth doing!

I just want to thank the following for helping to make today such a success:

  • Pat O Neill and Damien Mulley who helped organise things
  • The Montenotte Hotel for laying on tea and scones, and letting us up on their roof (and of course for the free and subsidised rooms)
  • The Boardwalk Bar and Grill who put on a sumptuous lunch for us and put up with curious photographers scrambling over their water feature and poring over the unusual Harley Davidson section at the back!
  • And finally, I want to thank everyone who came along today and really made the photowalk so enjoyable. I hope I have everyone here: Jamie (and Nora!), Ryan and Julie, Katie, Rudy, Paul, Pa, Mark, Kevin, Will (better late than never!), my wife Jacinta and son Adam who joined us later, and of course Pat who had dusted off a long forgotten digital camera to walk with us today.

Did I forget anyone?

If you’re going to post photos from the walk, please tag them with “corkphotowalk”. You can find lots of photos from previous photowalks (and hopefully this one) on flickr and pix.ie when you search for that tag!
