Blarney on a sunny winter day This is the centre of Blarney village. It’s a lovely large green, enclosed on all sides by walls and with gates on the north and south sides. Just goes to show, it’s not always raining in Ireland!
Rooftop Surveillance The houses and roofs of the North Side, Cork City. This was taken from Carroll’s Quay carpark almost a month ago. I love the old-style quality of the image, even if the shadow of the dish at the bottom detracts from that a bit. Check out Stabarinde’s Christmas in Cork shots. I’m glad […]
Christmas decorations on high Christmas decorations on Paul Street, Cork a few days before Christmas Day last year. Hand held, and I hoped to get a “normal” straight shot but it’s hard to crouch down while wearing a jacket and pushing a buggy so it’s lopsided. I prefer it that way! Conversion to b/w I […]
Susan’s Fine Silver During the Christmas rush I went searching for gifts for my wife and the first place I went was Susan’s Fine Silver on Marlboro Street in Cork. This is Susan’s husband Barry, and that’s Michael replacing merchandise in the window. Both were very helpful and I got two lovely gifts for Jacinta. […]
I want real spam! Oh, delicious spam! How I love you so! I want to spread you on sandwiches and lick the knife clean! Oh Yum! Or not. I’ve never tasted the edible variety of spam, but like everyone else online I’ve had my fair share of spam emails, comments and blogs. This is the […]
Firemen in action Cork City Fire Brigade were called out this evening to a shop on Patrick Street. I’m not sure what the emergency was but two fire engines were called to the scene and had a Garda escort on the way there. Maybe a gas leak? A huge crowd gathered around and when some […]
Slow down in 2008 I’m going to slow down this year. I’ve been trying to keep up with everyone else, moving without thinking, on auto pilot sometimes. I blog too fast. There! I’ve said it. I tried to post here, to Holy Shmoly!, to The Funny Video Blog every day but there’s only so much […]
January Sales The Christmas rush is over. Sales have been bad for retailers as people suddenly realised, “Oh! The mortgage has to be paid!” Anyway, I’m half-hoping I’ll be able to pick up a Nintendo Wii somewhere. I don’t suppose they’ll be on sale will they? I celebrate 10 years online this year! Go me! […]
Highrise Construction Over Cork City Cranes still rise into the air, towering over everything else, even the Elysian Tower pictured on the right of this image. The Irish economy may be slowing down but there’s still plenty of life in the old dog yet! Happy new year! May 2008 be even better than 2007!
