I’m going to slow down this year. I’ve been trying to keep up with everyone else, moving without thinking, on auto pilot sometimes.
Instead, this blog will of course be updated every day, Holy Shmoly will be updated at most 3 times a week, and I’ll try to post one funny video a week.
Then I’ll have time to play with my son, watch him discover the world and enjoy the great times.
Ryan – thank you for the recommendation and a happy new year to you too!
A strange multi-coloured bus waiting at the lights in downtown San Francisco last summer.
Yes, those are horns on the roof. Does anyone know anything about it? A search for “EFT 922”, it’s registration plate, turns up nothing useful.
“We had no idea how poorly he would play,” continued the Samsung spokesperson. “Not just Ronan, but the whole team. In hindsight the ‘I’m converted’ caption is quite embarrassing because his conversion record in the World Cup was shite. We’re quite disappointed with Ronan, not only did he let himself and the country down, but he let us, a multi-billion dollar company, down as well.”
A skip or large rubbish bin is manoeuvred into place on a building site off Paul Street, Cork.
Those tall cranes are practically a part of city life now …
The Christmas lights on Carey’s Lane shine brightly in this long exposure shot.
The exposure is so long that crowds of people walked past, some apologising, without evening showing up on the final image! The only person visible is a homeless guy sitting in a doorway. I love how the Christmas lights came out in this. f/22 does lovely things to points of light.
This was taken one evening while in town and I had a few moments to spare. Get out the camera, crouch down and put the wallet under the lens to point it up a bit. Perfectly still, without a tripod!
While I shot this I realised where this photo was taken! See the No Parking sign?
A water main on the street in San Francisco while Automattic waited to go into a restaurant.
I think that’s Matt in the background, but it might have been Alex too.
Urban Acid applied to this image 🙂
This alley should be familiar to almost everyone in Cork. The entrance to Gorbys nightclub is halfway down there.
Many a Saturday night was spent queuing up to get in!
A long exposure at f/22 creates the beautiful star like pinpoints of light and enough time to capture the light trail from passing cars.
No tripod, so I used street furniture to balance the camera!
Two teenage girls on Patrick’s Street, Cork. One is lost in thought, while the other chats away.
Do you recognise the Special K poster in the background?
