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!
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!
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..

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.

People are dirty and they litter our streets with packaging, plastic wrappers and junk.
This weekend (today is a bank holiday) is the Cork Jazz Festival. People from all over the world come to Cork to participate – to play, to listen, or just get drunk and enjoy the festivities!
A city is made up of all sorts of people.
If you have a camera, run a photoblog or you’re in town, there will be a meet up tomorrow in Cork!
Everyone will gather in front of the Clarion Hotel at 2pm tomorrow where we’ll plan our photographic assault on the city!
It’s also the Jazz Weekend here in Cork so there’ll be plenty of interesting subjects to shoot!

Shot this one by holding a magnifying glass up above a bar of Fry’s Chocolate. I will be enjoying said bar of chocolate at lunch. Yum.
