Who’s for supper?

Who’s for supper? A mural on a wall in Dublin a few weeks ago. We passed this while walking back to our hotel. I get the feeling there’s a story behind this picture. Does anyone know it?

Six Apart Mark

Six Apart Mark Niall Kennedy drove myself and Mark Jaquith around on a small sight seeing tour of the local attractions in San Francisco after WordCamp last Saturday. A visit to the offices of Six Apart proved to be too good a thing to pass up so we posed for a few photos on their […]

Honest Smoothies

Honest Smoothies We bought smoothies in Honest, a small shop in Dublin. They were having problems with their machines and gave us one of the smoothies free but they didn’t taste all that great unfortunately.

Hop On, Hop off the Spire

Hop On, Hop off the Spire (print) The infamous Dublin Spire with a tour bus in the foreground. “The Dublin Spire is one hundred and twenty metres tall, making it by far the tallest structure in Dublin city centre. It is three metres wide at the base and tapers to a 15 centimetre wide beacon […]

Middle East War Protest

Middle East War Protest On Saturday afternoon, Cork Alliance Against War held a protest against the war in Lebanon. After reading this story about the Kudsi family I have a lot more sympathy for them. Their house was bombed early one morning and most of the household was wiped out. “In the early hours of […]

Strange on the street

Strange on the street A woman caught in an awkward step by my camera on Oliver Plunkett Street, Cork.

The Grand Parade Construction Site

The Grand Parade Construction SIte Another view down the Grand Parade and a look at the construction site that takes up most of the street! Well known shop fronts such as the Singer Sewing Centre are visible in the background. In sharp contrast, the new Soho bar and restaurant is right next to it. It’s […]

Running Child

Running Child Shortly after my previous shot a little girl ran past me. She had a lovely smile and was obviously enjoying the sun! Her mother brought up the rear at a more sedate pace.

Begging

Begging Children pass a Romanian woman begging in Cork. She is part of a growing group of gypsies who have come to Ireland as refugees. Unfortunately many of them have realised that Ireland is a land of rich pickings while their application for asylum is processed. New laws have changed matters but Ireland is still […]

Beer kegs on the quay

Beer kegs on the quay Beer kegs on Union Quay. The Lobby is open again isn’t it? Yum, I like Erdinger! This was taken only moments after this one which probably explains why a keg is sitting at the base of a life ring pole. It’s not some weird “save him and feed him beer” […]

Run for the bus!

Run for the bus! A bit of an experiment this one. As I walked along Merchant’s Quay this woman and her husband barrelled past. The picture of her husband is simply a blur but I like what I got of her. The streaky lines are caused by an excessive dodge/burn tool but I like the […]

Skibbereen or Hospital

Skibereen or Hospital A sign in the foreground of the main square in Bantry, Co. Cork. We went to Ahakista eventually! This is made from one exposure but I had this great looking sky and underexposed buildings and ground detail. To get an even exposure I split the photo using two layers and adjusted the […]
