Deep Water Berth at Ringaskiddy

Deep Water Berth at Ringaskiddy

The deep water berth at Ringaskiddy in Cork Harbour yesterday. Driving rain, wind blowing it almost horizontal. The first day of the year was wet. I waited until it quietened down a bit before venturing outside with my camera! 🙂

An Apple for Blarney

An Apple for Blarney

I discovered there’s an apple tree on the Waterloo Road near Blarney recently when I spotted apples on the road while out walking.

Originally I thought I’d post this as a bright colourful photo but then I wanted to show off the texture of the fruit against the rough, stony surface of the road. Black and white would be perfect for that. Apologies for the blown out highlights, this was taken with my phone which does a great job but you can only do so much with Jpeg files.

Happy Playing Music

Happy Playing Music

A man busking in Emmett Place, Cork a few weeks ago. I forgot to ask his name and he apologised for his playing as he was learning a new song so he was likely going to be strumming the same chords over and over again.

This was shot when I was out with Blarney Photography Club and it was shown at the next meeting. Another photo of him was shown too from a lower angle and closer which I think is better than this one, but this is the one I have so it’s all I’ll post!

Anyway, is it street photography if your subject is aware of you and looking straight at the camera? Before you answer, watch Bruce Gilden in action:

Wanna Go Home

Loud music, lots of strangers, a concrete jungle. I think this dog wants to go running in the fields.

Still Pushing Buggies

Still Pushing Buggies

A new book featuring pictures of Cork was published recently, Cork in the 1960s. The front cover is a photo of two women pushing a buggy and a pram on St. Patrick’s Street.

I was on that street today and when I saw the book in the window of Waterstones I had to make this photo when I saw the opportunity.

It was nice to get out with Blarney Photography Club today on a photo walk!
