Boole woz ‘ere

George Boole, the inventor of boolean algebra lived in the last house on the right of this photo from 1849 to 1855.

I’m certain that most Cork people pass this house daily and haven’t a clue as to it’s previous occupant’s contribution to the world we live in today.

    Lovely photo! Any chance we can get the EXIF data?

    It should be possible to do this automagically, I could give it a go if I was pointed in the right direction.

    Do you use the “Blog This” button on Flickr or some other method?

    Unfortunately EXIF data is lost when I convert from RAW, but from the small in-camera jpeg – f4.5, 5 sec exposure, 18mm, ISO 100.
    I should have set it to f22 but it was cold and we had spent 2 hours in town so I wanted to get home!

I do like the leading lines the guide the eye to thetop of the pole! And in other news, voting for the Irish Blog Awards has commenced! I’ve been nominated in 3 categories including “Best Photo Blog” for this blog! […]

    I have a geocache in Blackrock marking his grave. He died in a house opposite where I live in 1864. The geocahce is called It’s Logical

      I’ll have to try finding that cache! Can’t be any worse than when I tried to find a local cache around here and failed miserably. 🙁
