This couple were engrossed in conversation walking across the busy junction of Washington Street and The Grand Parade without waiting for the lights. A moment later the man looked towards traffic and put his hand out to stop a car that was heading towards them!
Day 5 of #FiveDayBlackAndWhiteChallenge. Since I was tagged 3 times I’ll continue for a while yet. Enjoying the black and white images?

A lady in sunglasses caught me red handed taking a picture of her at the stall she was at in Patrick’s Street, Cork in July 2013 during some street festival.
Day 3 of the #FiveDayBlackAndWhiteChallenge on Facebook for me and I was tagged by Ronan a few minutes ago to do it all over again so I’ll keep going for ten days!
The Men’s Shed in Blarney constructed this fabulous float for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Blarney yesterday. It was voted the best float of the day by a panel who reviewed the parade.
The cart was made by members of the Shed so, as the announcer in the village said, it may be the newest cart pulled by a horse in the country now.

Paul Street, Cork. January 2014.
Shades of gold and brown were everywhere in November. This shot in Fitzgerald Park, Cork captured the wonderful display while kids and parents congregated around the playground.
A street in San Francisco, 2006.
On our way back to Baltimore after a nice visit to Cape Clear Island the ferry passed by the Baltimnore Beacon.
I heard that the Beacon had been built by the father of a man who perished on the cliffs where it’s built but it’s origin is rather more mundane. The British Government ordered it built in the mid 1900’s. However I did know it was known as “Lott’s Wife” or the “Pillar of Salt” locally.
Martin O’Brien who runs The Old Grainstore at St. Mullin’s, Co Carlow posed for a photo after we chatted with him outside his café. It was a glorious day and the place was busy with people eating lunch, swimming and walking about. It’s a beautiful location I want to return to again.
St Patrick’s Street, Cork during the Street Performance World Championships yesterday. Does anyone know who this performer is?
I can’t really comment on any of the performers unfortunately as I was only there for an hour with a bored six year old who had a fixation on buying an Angry Birds hat and balloon animals. There were huge crowds too which meant kids had to at the performance before it started to get a place in front.
I’m glad I caught this moment.
