Lone plane over Windsor

If you live anywhere north of London it seems you’re in the flight path of one airport or another. Windsor, despite having a great big castle, is no exception and a number of flights flew over in the few hours we spent in the town. Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 17mm ISO […]

Public Seating

Public Seating

Plastic seats outside a house, near yesterday’s home I think. We went for a walk this evening by the reservoir in Inniscarra and I got some nice shots of my family and of the setting sun over the water. Unfortunately when I got home a number of shots were corrupted. I’m not sure why or […]

My Home from Home

What do you do when you get home from holiday? Put a clamp on the wheels of your caravan! I could make a joke about cleaning the wheels of their home, but that’s an obvious one and I’m in a hurry tonight. Got a surprise birthday party to go to soon! Shot somewhere near Slough […]

Terminal 1 at Heathrow

Terminal 1 at Heathrow, just before we parked. Thanks Matt and Mary for a great few days! Matt bought himself a shiny new Sony A200 on Saturday. It has built in image stabilisation that really helped when I took some shots inside a pub in Eton. If you’re on the look out for a very […]

Customer Parking Only

The Organic Shop in Douglas Cork obviously has problems with non-customers parking in front of the shop. Why else would they put a wheel clamp on prominent display next to their warning sign? Lucky for us we were buying something .. Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/160s

I’d vote for the husky. BarCamp Cork II was brilliant. I got my talk on WordPress and AJAX over and done with early on in the day, mingled, fixed @icedcoffee’s Tweet Tweet plugin and updated the Tweet Tweet plugin to support Twitter notification via O2 Ireland’s free webtexts. Thanks Enda for the u/p while I […]

Glengariff Cemetery

Shell To Sea

The “Shell to Sea” stand in Bishop Lucey Park during the “Peace in the Park” event a few weeks ago. Like a lot of people I’m sick and tired of the protests in Co Mayo against the pipeline Shell want to build to bring gas to an onshore facility. This story and photos of an […]

Directions to Blarney Castle

Blarney Castle is that way. Go out the gate, turn right, turn left and park. Right in front of you. I got back to Ireland yesterday afternoon. A mostly uneventful flight home, except for some problems with check in and I had to check in twice more. On the last attempt I got bumped to […]
