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.
A few days ago I had a chance to shoot the city and took the opportunity to get a higher vantage point to shoot the Ferris wheel on The Grand Parade.
I’ve decided to license this photo and any newer photos under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. This basically means you can do whatever you like with this photo, even commercial usage (although opportunities might be limited because of the web size of the file) as long as you credit me as the author and share the (altered?) photo under the same license.
You could if you were so inclined add little stick figures dangling from the gondolas in this photo, with one plummeting to it’s death while the others are rescued by their friends or a passing eagle. I’d be fine with that. I’d be very happy with that! Just remember to mention me and link back here. That’s all I ask.
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.
A trip into town is always complicated when you have kids with you. Shot on Emmett Place, Cork last weekend.
Graffiti on a St Patrick Street, Cork. A couple embraces and kisses forever lost in each other.
First time shooting on the street with the Canon 6D. I set up C1, one of the custom settings with the following:
1. Enable auto ISO and limit it to 100-128000.
2. Set the minimum shutter speed to 1/125.
3. Use medium RAW.
This should help me get sharp images, at the expense of more noise. It helped sometimes but at other times shooting from the hip was too much and the swing of my arm didn’t help matters. I culled about half of the images I took and I’ll probably delete more as I go over them again tomorrow.
A model walks down a catwalk in Union Square, San Francisco, July 27th 2007.
I was in the city with Automattic and we stayed in a nearby hotel so Union Square was a good spot to get photos. Can’t remember what occasion this fashion show was on for. I think it may have been some fashion school or something!

In January 2007 supporters of a mountain rescue group in Cork were collecting on Patrick’s Street. This is just one of the fabulous dogs they had with them at various locations!
