The City of San Francisco

San Francisco as seen from the hills surrounding the City. I took this back in August 2006.

Can you tell yet that I merged a few of my work directories after doing some house keeping work on my photo archive?

Thanks to Niall Kennedy for driving us up there!

Beach Canon 20D Cork Dogs Garrettstown Ireland Photos Sea Sigma 18-200 Water

The Happy Shih Tzu

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*

Shih Tzu on a sunset beach

Our Shih Tzu Oscar on Garrettstown Beach again. We forgot to bring a ball with us but Oscar went running after anything I threw.

He never did catch the object. I guess there’s nothing quite like a tennis ball eh?

I love the evening sun on him in this picture!

Boat Canon 20D Cork Currabinny Ireland Landscape Photos Sea Sigma 10-20 Sky Water

Cork Harbour from Curabinny

This is the small quay at Currabinny across the water from Crosshaven in Cork Harbour.

As today was such an awful day with driving rain, sleet and ice I think a nice calm photo was in order. This was taken in April last year.

I’m travelling soon. I realised yesterday that I may not have my Sigma 10-20 lens to bring with me. Boo!

The sun sets on 2007

The final day of the year 2007. It’s cloudy and misty and rain is in the air. Very mild for this time of year actually.

2007 was a mixed bag for many people. It was a year of extremes – joy and sadness in equal measures, but life changing for myself and my wife as our son Adam was born into the world this year.

This sunset was shot at Garrettstown Beach a few weeks ago. Dedicated to the memory of Gerry who visited that beach with us before she passed away.

Waves at Couminole

The waves crash on to the beach at Couminole on Slea Head, Co. Kerry.

Standing where I was when I took this image was scary. Huge waves lifting up water to head height before crashing down mere feet in front of me.

Is that Skellig Michael in the background?

Canon 20D Dingle Ireland Kerry Landscape Nature Photos Sea Sigma 10-20 Sky Water

Dingle

The town of Dingle, or “An Daingean” as it’s officially known as now. The name change has upset many local people who mourn the loss of their identity and fear that the brand recognition of the name Dingle will be lost on (mostly American) tourists who flock here through out the summer.

The 2005 Placenames Order changed the name and it’s an utterly silly law. Yes the town is in an Gaeltacht, the Irish speaking part of the country. Yes, more people (hopefully?) speak Irish in those parts than in others, but a region does not survive on it’s own without interaction with non-Irish speaking people. I’m all in favour of An Gaeilge but this law is wrong.
Luckily, locals have stencilled the word “Dingle” back onto most signage but they missed a few signs here and there.
