All Dressed up for the Show


A model poses for the camera. She was dressed warmly but I still remember it was a roasting day. How she kept her cool is beyond me! Another shot from the same day is Red Heart.

Bay Bridge at Night


The Bay Bridge in San Francisco as it was in 2007. I can’t believe that was seven years ago. Wow.

Ground Level by Bishop Lucey Park

The Grand Parade in Cork was quite different 11 years ago. Outside Bishop Lucey Park was an uneven path, the centre of the street was a narrow section between two busy strips of tarmac. And of course the Capitol Cinema was still open. I’m glad the monstrosity pictured here was never built there, even if the site is still dormant. More info on the history of that site available here.

This shot was taken within minutes of this Grand Parade shot I posted last month.

The Grand Parade in 2003

The Grand Parade in 2003

I’ve recently taken a keener interest in older photos of Cork but the realisation that I have photos in my own archive that are “sort-of old” has dawned slowly on me.

Here’s a shot of The Grand Parade in Cork shot in 2003. The street looks completely different now of course. The street isn’t split in two, there aren’t cars parked in the middle of the street like that any more, and there’s a huge pedestrian area where that bus stop used to be. The bus stop is in fact about 10m or more over to the left.

In the foreground is the cannon I have posted here a few times. You can see in that picture some of the changes that make the modern street a more friendly place to pedestrians.
