The Bike at the Library

The Bike at the Library Cork City Library on the Grand Parade used to have railings in front for locking up your bike. Those railings disappeared a few months ago but people still leave their bikes there. The library itself will soon be the subject of a major facelift as a developer expands it into […]

Walking exercise for the kids

Walking exercise for the kids Walking as an exercise is a great way to lose the pounds and get in shape, which is all well and good when you’re a toddler and you’re pushed around in a pram all day! This was shot on Maylor Street, Cork a few months back when it was still […]

Killarney’s main street

Killarney’s main street This one’s for John. He should be able to see his surname on the far right of this picture. Way back in February this year Killarney was going through it’s own turmoil with road works that pretty much did for traffic along this particular street. I’d like to see any SUV traverse […]

Girls dressed in white

Girls dressed in white Mommy and daughter are dressed all in white as they hurry around town shopping. Taken on Patrick’s Street while I tried to dodge the previously mentioned hurrying mother and another shopper who had just been in to Awear.

Shoe Shopping

Shoe Shopping Off to the shops? Looks like these ladies, young and slightly older, have been busy already in “Shoe Zone” and other stores doing some shoe shopping. Mum looks a bit stressed, but daughter is off in her own world and probably enjoying the day! This image was taken moments before I shot The […]

Boy all alone on the street

Boy all alone It’s strange how you can be stuck in your own little world and not be aware of anything around you. All around this boy were couples, either hand in hand, walking together or even framing him in the middle of the image, but I’m struck by his solitary movement through the street. […]

The lady’s red boots

The lady’s red boots Sometimes on a cloudy and dark day something unexpected can brighten your day. These sexy red boots had that effect and I quickly grabbed this shot! I can’t imagine the pain of walking in shoes with such high heels however. *shudder*

A child’s smile

A child’s smile A smile brightens up anyone’s day. When it’s a child smiling it’s extra special. This was shot on St. Patrick’s Bridge, Cork just after the St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 17th. The crowds opened up for a few seconds and I briefly saw father and son.

Sky High Cork City

Sky High Cork City Cork City as seen from the top of the carpark on the Grand Parade. The big ugly white building is the tax office on O’Sullivan’s Quay, the church is a disused one nearby. I’m not sure of the name off the top of my head, anyone? Technique: 1. Use two layers, […]

What’s in the bag?

What’s in the bag? A young lady checked her bag just outside Paul Street Shopping Centre in Cork. Wide angle lens makes for weird contortions but I like it!

Tired of shopping

Tired of shopping Sometimes you just want to move to the side and let life pass you by. Don’t forget to jump on again! Image made on Paul Street, next door to Bully’s Restaurant in Cork.

Wow! A super hero!

Wow! A super hero! This is for all the fans of Marvel and DC Comics publications! Super heroes do exist. They live in Cork, and hand out leaflets on Patrick’s Street in front of Dunnes Stores!

Construction on the Grand Parade

Construction on the Grand Parade Pictured several months ago in February, pedestrians were blocked off from the construction work by high fences but not high enough to stop someone sticking a camera over the top. This is one of the construction vehicles. Looks like a mix of a forklift and a crane doesn’t it?

The happy child

The happy child It is wonderful to see a child smile and laugh and this little fella certainly was cheerful! Three buggies in one shot, tell me there isn’t an explosion in births in Ireland! This was shot on Patrick’s Street, right in front of Boots. There’s someone eating in Abrakebabra in the background! I […]
