Three in the sky

three in the sky

I guess the number of high rise cranes we’ll see over our urban environment will decrease as the building industry collapses. Meanwhile there are plenty around. Here’s three I shot in the middle of Cork City from Emmett Place. At night they’re lit up which is when I shot short circuit.

Mallow Camera Club had the Photographer of the Year competition last night. I came 4th in the novice section, missing out on 3rd place by 1 point. So close!

PS. The photomeet in Dublin last weekend went very well by all accounts. There was much twittering yesterday from all concerned. You can check out photos here: toejam pool, iced-coffee, Darren Greene, Gingerpixel, Caitriona, Alexia, McAWilliams, Will Knott, 73man and finally Courtney.
