Growing Wild in the Biosphere

Growing Wild in the Biosphere

Inside Biosphere 2, Arizona is a complete ecosystem meant to keep a group of people alive for months on end. That project ended years ago but the building remains and it’s worth a visit if you’re in the area!

Just in case you didn’t see yesterday’s post, 3 hotel rooms going for free on the 25th of September if you’re going to the photowalk the following day! Just leave a comment if you can definitely go and want to be in with a chance to win.

I thought there might be a rush on this but, boy is it proving hard to give away such a good prize! I’ll just have to claim one of the rooms for myself! 🙂

Autumn Trees

Autumn Trees

Beautiful golden leaves adorn the trees in Burnham Beeches near London. Last year I posted a photo of the same trees in Burnham Beeches and this version has been sitting in my TODO folder ever since, waiting for me to work on it.

Innards of the Building

Innards of the Building

The old Dunnes Stores building on Patrick’s Street in Cork is keeping it’s old style and attractive front facade. Phew. I still think it’s odd how a building site juts out behind it though.

PS. The nominations form for the Irish Blog Awards is now open. If you feel it deserves it, I’d be very grateful if you would nominate this blog in the “Best Photoblog” section. Like last year, I’m not going to stick a huge “vote for me” link on the blog and this is the only mention of the awards I’ll make.

Smiles all around

Smiles all around

The smiling attractive face of a model appeared on the hoarding surrounding the building site that is Dunnes Stores in Cork several months ago. It hasn’t had much of an effect on all however.

Dunnes Stores in the centre of Cork City is being rebuilt as part of a major development. This is the first in a series of photos I’ll publish over the next few days.

This was taken very close to this photo shot about 10 months before!

Murphy’s

Murphy's

A Murphy’s Stout glass sits on a wall on the island of Cape Clear. That’s not Murphy’s in it obviously. That’d be a strange looking stout!

Happy new year everyone!

Idle Machinery

Idle Machinery

Cranes towering over Cork City sit idle as the sun sets on a late October day in 2008. I suspect this scene will become more rare as the recession bites.

Best Business Premises

Best Business Premises

A few months ago I posted a photo of General Michael Collins on the wall of the Eldon Hotel in Skibereen, Co Cork. That hotel received the “Best Business Premises” award in 1997. Unfortunately it appears they’ve run out of business judging by the state of the exterior.
