St Patrick and the Volkswagen

St Patrick and the Volkswagen

A Volkswagen Beetle parked across the road from St. Patrick’s Catholic Church on the Lower Glanmire Road in Cork. The church was built in 1840. The car, not so old.

Shot on the recent photowalk in the city.

Cobh in Black and White

A dump of the b/w images I shot in Cobh over the weekend. It was a strictly “stroll around and do nothing” day (so sorry Conor for not calling in!) as Adam was being minded by my sister.

As I said a few days ago, I shot everything in black and white and I’m pleased with the results. From about the shots of the rope on I used RAW+Jpeg but I still prefer the b/w images.

Hope something here takes your fancy!

Chemtrails and Clouds and Evening Sky

Chemtrails and Clouds and Evening Sky

I’ve already covered the chemtrails conspiracy but they’re such a frequent and visible part of the sky that I have to shoot them sometimes.

This was taken in Blarney, the trail is from a high flying plane going west to the USA.

Arrangements for the photowalk on the 26th are surging ahead. Pat got in touch to say we can shoot from the roof of the Montenotte Hotel where we meet. The speedboat is organised (max 4 passengers but I won’t be going, stomach is still feeling fragile!) and then a complementary lunch for all photowalkers in the Boardwalk Bar & Grill around noon. See the photowalk post if you’re interested in staying in the hotel on the previous night.
Should be the best photowalk yet!

Glass Clouds

Glass Clouds

It’s odd sometimes when you’re traveling through the towns of Ireland and you come across the remnants of the Celtic Tiger, usually newly built and empty office buildings.

This is one such building, near the waterfront in the town of Kilrush in County Clare. It faces on to a broad street but all the other buildings are more traditional ones. This glass fronted edifice looked very empty on the day we walked past.
