What is Home?

Homeless in Cork

A mural called “What is Home?” painted by Asbestos. A figure wearing a cardboard box on it’s head looks out on a derelict site next door, and across the road the site of the new convention centre, if it is ever built..

Pine Island in Black and White

Pine Island in Black and White

Pine Island in Connemara, Co Galway. On the day I took this photo the driver of a nearby car misjudged their parking spot and ended up with their back wheels spinning. After a few panicked moments they did manage to find the ground and sped away.

Street Musicians on Patrick Street

Street Musicians on Patrick Street

You’re more likely to see a street preacher or the guy with the “global harming” sign near this spot on St. Patrick’s Street, Cork. Back in 2004 we were treated to some guitar and banjo playing.

The Milky Way in Tenerife

The Milky Way in Tenerife

The Milky Way captured from inside Teide National Park.

This is a stacked image created from 19 images of the sky and 10 “noise” images. It was assembled in Sequator using this video tutorial to help me figure out how to use it. Final adjustments in Lightroom.

Getting to Teide National Park, inside a volcano, involves a long car journey going up. We were around 2300m above sea level when I took this photo, and it takes about an hour to drive here from the coast. Driving up the whole time. Quite an experience, especially after midnight. Out of the corner of my eye I spotted the lights of the resorts far below which made my stomach turn briefly, but the road was simple to follow. It just kept going up and up…

I was amazed when we got there finally. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many stars. The night sky was so dark the stars lit up brightly. Unfortunately clouds rolled in as we were taking photos but this image was the first stack I made, and the cloud hadn’t become too thick yet.

Thanks Henry for the lend of the 14mm Samyang lens. It was great having that extra wide lens!

Cork 2005

Cork 2005

Older visitors will recognise this poster if they were around Cork in 2005 when the city was “European Capital of Culture”.

This poster was draped over the city library, and I was very lucky to capture a tour bus as it drove past on a fine June day, exactly 17 years ago today.

The old house by the Castle

The old house by the Castle

If you’ve been to Blarney recently you won’t have seen this house. It was cleared several years ago and is now an open stretch of grass, and new wooden buildings used by the staff of Blarney Castle.

February 2015.
