Laughter in the English Market

Laughter in the English Market

It’s not all doom and gloom for shopkeepers. These ladies were obviously having a great ol’ chat in this shop in the English Market last month.

Another shot from the WW photowalk on July 18th. I seem to be getting a couple of good ones out of that day after all!

The shop is closed Today

The shop is closed Today

A corner shop in the English Market has a simple but effective way of shutting up shop for the day. Put a broom stick across the entrance!

The English Market is completely roofed over and locked tight at night so I guess traders feel reasonably safe with minimal security precautions. That’s what’s wonderful about the market. It’s in the centre of Cork City yet it feels like an entirely different place, like a village market with stalls.

Definitely worth a visit if you’re a tourist in Cork.

The stag in the English Market

the stag in the English Market

I remember seeing a shot Alkos took of this stag or deer on a wall near the English Market in Cork. I must dig up a link to it. Anyway, that shot was on my mind when I took this photo and I really like how it turned out!

Pig’s Head

Apparently there’s a market for pig’s heads. I’ll eat all sorts of meat products, and I’ll eat them with little prompting but a pig’s head?

I shot these two heads in the English Market last weekend. An American couple were looking at me as I shot this and afterwards the girl posed while her boyfriend took a photo. Gruesome!

A shark at Kay O’Connell’s fishmongers

A shark’s deadly grin greeted customers to the fishmongers in the English Market on the day this photo was taken.

Don’t you just love the expression on the fishmonger’s face?

PS. Claire took some great portraits on Saturday!

Staring at me

Am I feeling conspicuous or what?

I tried shooting from the hip yesterday with the strap of my camera over my shoulder and my camera in a horizontal position instead of being wrapped around my hand in a vertical orientation.

It proved useful, but I found that:

  1. More of my shots were blurry, perhaps because either the back and forth movement of me walking. I tried shooting in Tv (Shutter Priority mode) and even at 1/200sec and higher there was shake.
  2. It’s great getting more of the surroundings in but I miss the feet.
