Waving at you!

He was holding a promotional sign in the middle of Patrick Street so I don’t feel too bad about looking over his shoulder and snapping this shot!

Man in the hat

While in Wilton Shopping Center after having my eye looked at I spotted the man in the hat talking to an elderly woman. I only had my Panasonic FZ5 with me but it’s got a good zoom and a great image stabilizer!
He broke out into a big grin moments after I took this shot!

Patrick Street Lights

Car lights become abstract lasers of light along the main street of Cork City.

In unrelated news, this morning I had to go to the hospital because something got stuck underneath the eyelid of my left eye yesterday. I could feel it there, my eye was weeping, it was sore and annoying. Thankfully I got to see a doctor after only a wait of an hour or two. He quickly removed the foreign material and sent me packing with a prescription for eye drops which I have to take for 5 days. Yes, I took a camera, and got a great snap of an older gentleman at the local shopping center which I must post tomorrow when I have time. Now to catch up on work..

Waves Crashing

It’s very difficult to stop waves. You’ll need a fast shutter speed. If you don’t have a fast lens then stopping down a notch or third, or increasing the ISO will help too.
This image was originally quite bland with washed out waves and dark rocks but a little dodging and burning with a soft layer worked wonders!

This was taken in Dunworley, Co. Cork yesterday.

No Litter!

People are dirty and they litter our streets with packaging, plastic wrappers and junk.

Cork Boi!

This young lad came running straight at me on Patrick’s Street with a big grin on his face with his mother following breathlessly after him!
I was with John and Ryan at the time. John came all the way down from Galway, the weather was bad but I’m glad we got out to take a few shots of the city!
