This is the centre of Blarney village. It’s a lovely large green, enclosed on all sides by walls and with gates on the north and south sides.
Just goes to show, it’s not always raining in Ireland!
A small girl sits on (I presume) her dad’s shoulders on Patrick’s Street. In the background is the Savoy Shopping Center, and of course the building side behind Dunnes is clearly visible in the scaffolding supports to the far left.
Cables from a crane on the construction site at the old Guy & Company building in Cork.
Traffic stops at the lights by the building site of the Elysian. I passed by the other side of it, past the low rise section of the building and it towers over the street.
Christmas decorations on Paul Street, Cork a few days before Christmas Day last year.
Hand held, and I hoped to get a “normal” straight shot but it’s hard to crouch down while wearing a jacket and pushing a buggy so it’s lopsided. I prefer it that way!
Conversion to b/w I think brings out the descending pattern of the lights along the street although the original image wasn’t that saturated with colour to begin with.
This is the small quay at Currabinny across the water from Crosshaven in Cork Harbour.
As today was such an awful day with driving rain, sleet and ice I think a nice calm photo was in order. This was taken in April last year.
I’m travelling soon. I realised yesterday that I may not have my Sigma 10-20 lens to bring with me. Boo!
A holiday caravan near a beach on the Dingle Peninsula.
This caravan has been in the same spot for at least the last 2 years, and probably longer. I wanted to shoot it for quite a while but it wasn’t until I converted this shot to b/w that I was happy with it.
Cranes still rise into the air, towering over everything else, even the Elysian Tower pictured on the right of this image.
The Irish economy may be slowing down but there’s still plenty of life in the old dog yet!
Happy new year! May 2008 be even better than 2007!
The final day of the year 2007. It’s cloudy and misty and rain is in the air. Very mild for this time of year actually.
2007 was a mixed bag for many people. It was a year of extremes – joy and sadness in equal measures, but life changing for myself and my wife as our son Adam was born into the world this year.
This sunset was shot at Garrettstown Beach a few weeks ago. Dedicated to the memory of Gerry who visited that beach with us before she passed away.
