The old Christian Brother’s school on Sullivan’s Quay was put up for auction and sold recently. It’s in a prime city centre location but is also a very old building.
My brother attended there briefly when the Model School transferred from Anglesea St near the end of it’s life.
Tomorrow, a picture looking in.
While walking back to the car after the Cobh Rambler’s game a few weeks ago I made this picture of a sign on the road.
I find it strange that out of the 600-odd images I took that day, this is the first image I’ve uploaded..
The buildings of the Grand Parade in Cork face away from the setting sung on a cold February afternoon earlier this year. Cork bathes in the frosty sunlight.
This image was of course made of two images, one for the sky and one for the city. It was handheld and shot using the bracketing function (AEB) on the Canon 20D. The image isn’t perfect. My hand moved between frames but it’s only noticeable at the horizon if you look carefully.
I wonder if the teenager wearing this hoodie realised the irony of wearing a garment decorated with cassette images, a piece of technology he may not ever have used. The Wikipedia page has a lot more to say on the subject.
This was shot outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street, Cork while I wheeled Adam around in his buggy.
Two girls stop to talk on Patrick’s Street, Cork. That bag looks uncomfortable. What do women put in their bags?
The Internet Cafe is that way.
Sign is on The South Mall in Cork.
PS. GIMP 2.4.1 was released yesterday. It’s a bugfix release!
Kerry were still celebrating their win in the All Ireland when we stayed in Dingle a few weeks back and flags were flying everywhere!
Like the stone laid by Barbara Jessie Burton in 1927, this doorway probably goes unnoticed by most people on Prince’s Street. It’s right next to the stone linked above, but the door is usually closed.
I spotted this colourful mosaic out of the corner of my eye and recognised the Burton name from my previous post.
The old Dunnes Stores on Patrick’s Street is now only a shadow of it’s former self. All that remains of the building is the front facade and a small portion of the side walls.
Construction work on the Paul Street development has levelled most of the back buildings in a square block, exposing the internals of other buildings to the elements.
I spotted photos hanging on the rear wall of a room left open to the elements after demolition. Surreal!
If any business person from Acadamy Street is reading this, can I go to the top of your building and shoot the construction site from on-high? Please!
