Beauty Treatment at The Body Shop

Beaty Treatment at The Body Shop

I’m still recovering after the photowalk yesterday! I took a quick look through my photos this evening and decided I’m not over the moon about any of them. A couple are ok, but there’s that little critical part of my mind saying, “crap, crap, crap, blah, ‘s ok, focus is off, boring, what were you thinking?” as I look through them.

Anyway, here’s a shot from just before I met everyone else so I guess it can’t be counted really. Shame really as I have another shot of a gentleman getting a bus that I quite like in b/w.

Glad I had the wide angle lens on, caught this beauty treatment in front of The Body Shop on Patrick’s Street. Things are really desperate when shops are hawking their wares on the street trying to entice customers to buy. I saw a guy from Waterstones handing 3-for-2 leaflets outside Easons too. That’s smart. Target your competitor’s customers!

Oh check out Jamie’s post about the day. He has some great shots. Thanks again to everyone who came!

City people in a b/w world

Shopping, talking, walking and rushing. People in the concrete jungle.

Selective colourisation using a layer mask to hide a b/w layer above the original colour layer. Shot from the same place I took this photo in front of The Body Shop in Cork.

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 passing and within a heartbeat had snapped off a few shots.

I like this: King Corner – great sky and architecture shot. All in your hands…. – keep on smiling!
