More Sultans in Blackrock

The Sultan in Blackrock

The Sultan stall in Blackrock Village has to be my favourite. I love their food, it’s always agreed with me and boy is it tasty. This is a photo I took last March when it was a lot colder but the guys were still cheerful. Today Taoufik was cooking and produced a delicious 3 meat combo for me! I would have taken a photo of that but, eh, I was too busy eating it so you’ll just have to find him yourself and order it or head into the Sultan restaurant on Penrose Wharf!

Cork Street Photography June Photowalk

Some photos I took in Cork City yesterday as part of the June Photowalk with Cork Street Photography “in the Style of Garry Winogrand”.

I only used a wide angle lens all day, and in processing I mostly avoided cropping the photos, although I did use the lens correction tool in Lightroom that straightens photos and crops a small portion of the image. Only two images have been cropped extensively, the one above in the bus, and the one of the woman sitting on a block smoking a cigarette.

I hardly ever composed a shot by eye, preferring to shoot from the hip, or in landscape mode from about shoulder height. I messed up framing when at 28mm, but at 17mm got more shots than I missed. Back button focus worked fairly well. I’d focus on the ground in front of me. A couple of shots were blurry but I was too far from the subject anyway, so no loss.

I used to shoot lots of wide angle street photos, and this got me back into it and reminded me of how hard it is!
