This is the centre of Blarney village. It’s a lovely large green, enclosed on all sides by walls and with gates on the north and south sides.
Just goes to show, it’s not always raining in Ireland!
Next time you’re in Blarney sit down on the benches next to Super Valu. Wait a few minutes and this cat will probably appear, especially in warm weather! 🙂
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!
This is the private road to the estate on which Blarney Castle sits.
As I was walking about one late winter afternoon I spotted the lovely light shining through the trees and just had to take a snap!
The Christmas rush is over. Sales have been bad for retailers as people suddenly realised, “Oh! The mortgage has to be paid!”
Anyway, I’m half-hoping I’ll be able to pick up a Nintendo Wii somewhere. I don’t suppose they’ll be on sale will they?
I celebrate 10 years online this year! Go me!
Check out Donal’s new photoblog, Pana Vision!
Just over a month ago, some of the trees around here still had leaves. I took the camera with me one evening when we went for a walk around the park.
The leaves were a lovely bright and vibrant colour, but obviously this has been a little touched up in the GIMP afterwards! 🙂
The Irish housing market is slowing down but sales are still being made.
A tiny house down the road from this one in Blarney sold a few weeks ago even though I’m sure you could hardly swing a cat in it …
It’s cold out there and the trees are almost bare. Some leaves still hang on however!
Lovely bright daffodils to brighten up your gloomy November Monday morning!
This was taken way back on March 18th this year on the same day I shot these daffodils! The image has been sitting in my WIP folder for months but after my gimp lomo post I decided to post this in a larger format.
Post processing: Auto-levels, gimp lomo and save. Resized version has been sharpened and I could have done more with the dodge and burn tool to bring out the detail in the flowers but this will have to do.
