Hot Tasty Sausages

hot tasty sausages

While out photowalking a hot sausages in a bun with a dab of mustard is just the thing to keep the hunger at bay. I bought the sausage in the bun being prepared above and totally enjoyed it, even if it was €4.

BTW there’s Kevin in the background!

Daffodils in the Snow

Daffodils in the Snow

Daffodils struggle against the cold and snow in Blarney this morning. Many parts of the country were covered in a white blanket. Snow is still falling. My son loves it of course. We spent 10 minutes in the back garden throwing snow around and I got some great photos!

If you’re in Dublin on St. Patrick’s Day this year make sure you upload your photos to the Pix.ie Festival Group. Pix.ie have got together with St. Patrick’s Festival to give bloggers a chance to get into good positions to shoot the Dublin Parade. I’ll be in Cork that day and I’ll be shooting the Parade here.
I wonder if the organisers down here can do something similar?

More coverage on icedcoffee, Red Mum, Darren Greene Photography, McAWilliams Photoblog and I’m sure on more blogs but I haven’t caught up on my blog reading in ages!

Suffering in the heat

suffering in the heat

It’s hard to believe that Ireland can be warm and roasting given the cold winds that blow around this time of year but back in June last year we had a heat wave. I can’t stand the heat of the sun, and by the looks of things, this gentleman isn’t too fond of it either.

Towering over the Little People

towering over the little people

Wherever you look on the north side of Cork City you’re bound to see a massive tower bristling with antennas. It’s an Eircom building AFAIK but I’ve never stopped outside it to look so it could be the secret offices of PROC for all I know! 🙂

Shot from Shandon Bells last Saturday.
