The crowd went mad cheering and shouting when filming of Stanley Super 800’s Gatecrashing video finally stopped.
You wouldn’t believe how many takes a music video takes but they were as vibrant and cheerful at the end as at the start! Amazing!
Image processed through the “Urban Acid” plugin that appeared on the GIMP Users mailing list last week. Nice effect!
Chalk graffiti on the temporary hoarding in front of the old Dunnes Stores store on Patrick Street, Cork.
On Saturday I took my Canon 20D into a camera shop here in Cork and asked how much they’d give for it as a trade in against a Canon 40D.
After a few minutes I found out the disappointing answer. €300. Depreciation is a bitch isn’t it? The Canon 40D body is €1200 here. I need to start saving.
In other camera news, the M/AF switch on my wide angle Sigma lens fell off! I noticed it gone this afternoon and can’t find the switch anywhere. Hopefully it won’t be too expensive to replace.
It’s cold out there and the trees are almost bare. Some leaves still hang on however!
We stayed in The Randles Court Hotel in Killarney, Co. Kerry last February and one night I wandered out to take a few shots.
This was a long exposure shot, with the aperture closed down as much as possible to f/22.
Lovely hotel too!
A small boy waits outside Brown Thomas with his dad while I presume his mother shops inside.
I had plenty of company while I waited!
Waiting outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street in Cork and texting. She’s waiting for someone.
A look inside the old Christian Brother school on Sullivan’s Quay in Cork.
The place is a mess. Desks and tables thrown about. Computer monitors sit staring into space and a basketball ring attached to the far wall unused for who knows how long.
The old Christian Brother’s school on Sullivan’s Quay was put up for auction and sold recently. It’s in a prime city centre location but is also a very old building.
My brother attended there briefly when the Model School transferred from Anglesea St near the end of it’s life.
Tomorrow, a picture looking in.
