Glassey Bright Reindeer

Glassey Bright Reindeer

Part of the Christmas display in Bishop Lucey Park, Cork. The covered over the decorated the fountain in the park. Beautiful. Huge crowds going there every night from what I saw.

Christmas on Panna

Christmas is upon us again and the lights and decorations are going up around the city. This is on Patrick’s Street, Cork a few days ago when we wandered around.

Foggy Sunlight

Fog covers the village of Blarney at the merest hint of a calm chilly morning and today was no exception. These are the trees across the road from my son’s school.

Coliseum Bowling

I haven’t bowled in the Coliseum, Cork in a long long time. I’m pretty sure the last time I bowled was in Wii bowling, perhaps at an Automattic meetup even! Nice way to spend an hour though.

What’s your highest score? I think mine’s somewhere around 240.

Everyman Palace Seating

Some of the seats in the Everyman Palace, Cork. It’s been ages since I saw anything there but it’s a great venue.
PS. I hardly had to process this photo, not worth putting a before pic this time!

Roadster Wheel

Detail from the wheel of a VW Beetle parked in an iron smith’s yard in Oracle, Arizona. This was taken in 2008 when Automattic visited there and I have quite a few other photos from that visit to show you, if I ever get around to working on them that is!

This was taken with my ancient Canon 20D. I’m half thinking of replacing my now-ageing Canon 40D (the shutter button misfires, it’s not as responsive as it once was, the body is creaking a bit) so I took a quick look at Ebay to see how much a Canon 7D body would cost. Ouch.
Other than the camera body my Sigma 18-200 lens has seen better days too. I had this lens back when I took this photo and it’s the main lens I keep on my camera. It shows too. The zoom extends if the lens is held upside down, bits of shiny plastic have rubbed off, there’s dirt stuck between the rings. Some would say it has character! I say I want a new lens!

Best start saving.

The Old Green Car

Not an old car but ye olde styled as was the fashion a couple of years ago. Stands out against more modern vehicles of course.
