You may remember this gentleman from a photo I posted around a year ago (it’s pure coincidence I’m posting this today! Really!)
This was shot in Midleton, Co. Cork during the Food and Drink Festival in 2006. Nice guy who came over for a chat afterwards.
I photographed the beach at Couminole on the Dingle Peninsula back in 2006 when there was a beach there. There was no sand to be seen during repeated visits there in September 2007.
I had actually quite forgotten I had taken this so it was nice to see the lovely sandy beach!
Trivia – a well known member of Mallow Camera Club who shall remain nameless was caught by the tide and had to remain sitting on the rocks for several hours in wet, foggy and rough conditions until the tide went out again.
The donkey knows everything. He stands in his field every day contemplating life.
This is the same donkey I posted before in Baile na nGall, Co. Kerry. We passed that way last September and I didn’t see him so if you see a wandering donkey, tell him I said hi!
This is one of the beautiful girls who modeled for Mallow Camera Club in September 2006. I can’t remember her name, and at the time I was totally unhappy with the image, but maybe it’s because I haven’t looked at it in a long time, I really like it now.
I shot several similar ones to this, but unfortunately many of them are under exposed. We had studio lighting but because several photographers would shoot at one time and their onboard flash would activate the studio lights so it was hit or miss whether you got a correct exposure or not.
Besides which, I was nervous as well, and didn’t know how to direct someone to pose for me!
On the way into Cork Airport I snapped this shot of the beautiful green fields of Co. Cork.
After the desert landscape of Arizona it was a relief to see familiar countryside again.
Our Shih Tzu, Oscar, received a long overdue grooming today. Here he is on the 10th of December 2007. Can you imagine how much more hair grew since then?
Yes, this photo is very similar to this beach photo. They were taken moments apart. I’m running low on prepared images, it’s after 9pm and I have lots of other things to do tonight before I go to bed. *yawn*
The London Eye (or Millenium Wheel as it is also called) is clearly visible in this shot of London City Center taken last weekend as my plane banked on approach to Heathrow Airport.
We arrived around 7am when it was still dark. Thankfully I had my camera in a small bag at hand because I had missed some great shots of Tuscon, Arizona because my camera had been tucked away in the overhead bins.
Sorry for the large file size. It’s a noisy image, and Jpeg compression isn’t that great with random noise.
The Irish flag flies outside Horgans of Blarney, a souvenir shop in the village.
Despite the fact that it’s between the butcher’s and a pub, I’ve never been in there. I doubt most locals have been.
Still, nice to see the flags waving!
