Shadows from the broken clouds above play over the landscape on Slea Head in Co. Kerry. Every moment was a different photo until the rain eventually caught up with us!
A Halloween Pumpkin Head or Jack-o’-lantern stares off at the community hall where Mallow Camera Club meet each Monday.
I spotted the head after our last meeting. It’s hand-held in low light so I had to pump up the ISO to get a steady shot.
Like the stone laid by Barbara Jessie Burton in 1927, this doorway probably goes unnoticed by most people on Prince’s Street. It’s right next to the stone linked above, but the door is usually closed.
I spotted this colourful mosaic out of the corner of my eye and recognised the Burton name from my previous post.
The old Dunnes Stores on Patrick’s Street is now only a shadow of it’s former self. All that remains of the building is the front facade and a small portion of the side walls.
Construction work on the Paul Street development has levelled most of the back buildings in a square block, exposing the internals of other buildings to the elements.
I spotted photos hanging on the rear wall of a room left open to the elements after demolition. Surreal!
If any business person from Acadamy Street is reading this, can I go to the top of your building and shoot the construction site from on-high? Please!

Shot using a fairly high ISO but bicubic resizing smudges the noise away!
Have you ever thought about how you’re manipulated by the brands?
Two motorbikes parked on the South Mall attracted my attention especially as a strong sun reflected off the clean chrome.
Yes, I know there’s a weird diagonal, yes it is distracting. Yes, it is intentional. Enjoy!
Hard wind worn grass grows by the beach at Wine Strand in Co. Kerry. I think this is perfect in black and white.
The blue sky was amazing but the light and shadow of the grass stands out against the uniform background.
I shot my first sports stuff in ages yesterday. A few of us from Mallow Camera Club made it to the Cobh Ramblers game against Dundalk and had free reign to walk around the perimeter of the football pitch.
I was almost hit a few times by the ball, including one time near the goal when I was zooming in on the action, with the camera in burst mode. I spotted the ball heading my way in the frame and stepped to the side a lit second before the ball landed where I was standing. Phew. Got the pic too 🙂
More about the day’s shooting during the week!
Rain descended on us moments after I took this shot as it sped across the bay and over Slea Head from the south!
This was taken above Couminole Beach.
