Blitz in Cork A modified car sits parked in front of the Carroll’s Quay car park in Cork. The distinctive logo on the wing reminds me of the Transformers. Maybe the driver is a fan?
The Apple Fiesta Just goes to show, them Apple folks have their fingers in every pie. They’re obviously going to buy Ford Motor Company. The owner of the Ford Fiesta this sticker was stuck on can obviously see the future. Delivery people already have their white vans. It’s simply a matter of plastering them with […]
The Erinville Maternity Hospital, Cork The Erinville Hospital in Cork is one of the old maternity hospitals that were shutdown earlier this year and facilities moved to the Cork University Maternity Hospital. My wife Jacinta and I made the short journey here from Blarney many times during her pregnancy, sometimes at ungodly hours in the […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 hat and the smoke I made this image of the guy in the hat on Patrick’s Street last February and I knew I had a great street shot. I have no idea what those people in the car are doing but they left shortly after. Link love: Donal has a great portrait of some […]
G-BKSP on Inch Strand Another shot from our few hours at Inch Strand in Co. Kerry last September. This is G-BKSP waiting on the beach to fly. Unlike the glider I posted earlier I saw this plane fly. Unfortunately conditions weren’t suitable for flying the gliders before we had to head home to Cork.
EI-128 ready to fly Here’s another shot of EI-128. Following my last shot I moved to the other side of the glider to capture some of the beach and hills behind. This was originally shot at an angle to get as much vertical space in but I rotated the image and filled in the sand […]
Heatons Awaken Your Senses I jumped at the chance to make this photo when I saw the colour of the Heatons bag and the Super Valu advert on the bus shelter. Only later did I notice just how well the red or wine colours match! Is there a subtle marketing ploy at play here?
Barratts on Patrick’s Street A young man enjoying the sun on a warm September afternoon on Cork’s main thoroughfare, St. Patrick’s Street, or Panna as it’s sometimes known locally. That’s probably an iPod he’s listening to isn’t it? Barratts shoe shop is in the background. The side of that shop is visible in Walk This […]
