Together Forever

Together Forever

Graffiti on a St Patrick Street, Cork. A couple embraces and kisses forever lost in each other. First time shooting on the street with the Canon 6D. I set up C1, one of the custom settings with the following: 1. Enable auto ISO and limit it to 100-128000. 2. Set the minimum shutter speed to […]

Blarney House

Blarney House

Blarney House, an impressive building on the grounds of Blarney Castle in Co. Cork, Ireland. It’s a private residence but during the summer there are guided tours every half hour.

Focus on Flowers

Focus on Flowers

Flowers in the gardens of Blarney Castle. Never once in my wildest nightmares did I ever imagine that I’d post a camera phone image as a single post but here it is. Taken with my Samsung Galaxy S4. There’s obvious JPEG artefacts when you view the original at 100% but this 800×600 pixel image is […]

Paul Street in Lights

Another one of those shots I took on the photowalk last week in Cork City. This is the shopping centre in Paul Street. Tesco is obviously the main tenant! Aperture ƒ/14 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 8s

Boats in Cobh

Boats in Cobh

Some of the boats that have taken up semi-permanent residence in Cobh pictured in 2006. I think some of those boats are still there! That was a beautiful but cold January evening. Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 18mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/500s

Wilton Road Roundabout

Wilton Road Roundabout

Flyovers are being built over the roundabouts in Wilton and Bishopstown in Cork right now and I’ve been meaning to photograph both building sites before construction was completed. I never imagined I’d be able to shoot the Wilton construction site from a plane! Aperture ƒ/14 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 400 Shutter […]

Hank Wedel and Friends in Charlies Pub Cork

Way back in 2009 we went to see Hank Wedel and other musicians play in Charlies Pub, Cork. It was a great night of music as far as I remember and it’s about time these photos see the light of day! Aperture ƒ/3.5 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/60s

Red Heart

Red Heart

A model walks down a catwalk in Union Square, San Francisco, July 27th 2007. I was in the city with Automattic and we stayed in a nearby hotel so Union Square was a good spot to get photos. Can’t remember what occasion this fashion show was on for. I think it may have been some […]

Hank Wedel and band in the Castle Hotel, Blarney

Hank Wedel and band at the Castle Hotel in Blarney on Sunday night. The band played a blinder despite the fact there was next to no room for them. These photos weren’t me walking up to them and sticking a camera in their faces, I had to lean back! Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D […]

The Camel Riders

The Camel Riders

Here’s Lenny, Kevin and Eoin (l-r) of Polldaddy fame riding on camels in Marrakesh, Morocco a few weeks ago. The ride was through wasteland adjoining a rich neighbourhood of Marrakesh where celebrities have their homes. When you hear that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are in town they’re not staying in the Medina, that’s for […]

Mountain Rescue Dog

In January 2007 supporters of a mountain rescue group in Cork were collecting on Patrick’s Street. This is just one of the fabulous dogs they had with them at various locations! Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/125s

Grand Parade Under Construction

The Construction of The Grand Parade Cork

Six years ago the Grand Parade in Cork was a major building site. I can’t remember how long construction lasted but it went on for quite some time as they tore up and changed the road layout, widened the pavements and generally made the street look a hundred times better than it was before! I’ve […]
