On dad’s shoulders

On dad’s shoulders A boy grins with delight after the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork this year. And why wouldn’t he? He’s sitting tall over everyone else! Larry Tompkins bar is in the background. It was packed with the day’s crowd. PS. The May issue of Digital Journalist has been out for a few days. I’m only now getting to look at it. Maybe. Adam is crying in the background. afk again!

Pathway to Gallarus

Pathway to Gallarus If you visit the Dingle Peninsula you must visit the Gallarus Oratory. It’s an early Christian church, possibly built in the 6th century. There is a visitor centre but don’t be fooled into paying the entrance fee. The building is a national monument and the public have a right to see it.

Haydn has blogged about the new gallery in West Cork he’s opening. I’ll be exhibiting there, as long as I can find time to get a few images printed and framed. Haydn says Ryan is contributing too which I didn’t know! Ryan – must talk to you about printing, framing and sizes! Conor… Read More

Boy all alone

Boy all alone A little boy sits on the ground near some bikes while all around people talk and enjoy the day. This was taken at the Midleton Food and Drink Festival last year. In the last 3 weeks I’ve worked on perhaps 3 photos, but luckily I had another 50 prepared to tide me over the weeks following the birth of Adam. Now where are those nappies…
