Suffering in the heat

suffering in the heat

It’s hard to believe that Ireland can be warm and roasting given the cold winds that blow around this time of year but back in June last year we had a heat wave. I can’t stand the heat of the sun, and by the looks of things, this gentleman isn’t too fond of it either.

Towering over the Little People

towering over the little people

Wherever you look on the north side of Cork City you’re bound to see a massive tower bristling with antennas. It’s an Eircom building AFAIK but I’ve never stopped outside it to look so it could be the secret offices of PROC for all I know! :)

Shot from Shandon Bells last Saturday.

Mini & the pussy

mini pussy

An (ancient?) Mini, one of the older British design, not the new fangled BMW ones that are as big as a Yaris, and of course a pussy cat watching me carefully.

This was shot near Shandon Bells after we braved the heights of the tower to shoot the City of Cork. Now take your minds out of the gutter. :)

I really must upload some of that day’s shoots to Pixie!

Yellow Pipes

When you’re stuck for time state the obvious. Yellow piping found on a back road beyond Crosshaven in Co Cork 9 days ago. That pink bike at the end of the frame was a nice bonus. Hadn’t noticed that when I took the photo!

Pancakes have been cooked, flipped and eaten by all and we’re heading out to see that Barcelona film that I can’t remember the name of in the Kino in Cork. Babysitter is here, Adam is tucked up in bed, time to run out the door.
