Running from the shop

A man in a hoody running out of a shop with a speaker in one hand and a McDonald's cup in the other. Another man is talking to a smiling security guard behind him.
Man in a hoody running past me, looking over his shoulder as his friend comes out of the shop he just left.
Man shouting and coming out of a shop waving his hand holding his phone in the air and a Mc Donald's cup in the other.

Walking along Henry Street in Dublin a few weeks ago, and I saw these two lads coming out of a shop in a hurry. I wouldn’t even have posted these, except the second guy seems to be quite a character!

The Northside Water Tower

Water tower on Cork City's north side visible on the skyline

The “futuristic” water tower that sits on Kilmore Road Lower in Knocknaheeny is seen from Bell’s Field in this photo taken in July this year.

It was completed in 1972 and Councillor Gerald Yael Goldberg (1912-2003) described the water tower as ‘futuristic’ but predicted that it would ‘fit into the landscape’. I’m not so sure. It’s in such a prominent spot it can be seen as far away as Blarney.

From North Side to County

The north side of Cork City, with Shandon Bells in the foreground, the County Hall in the background and many homes.

A sight well known to anyone who lives in Cork City. The Spire of St. Anne’s Church, or Shandon Bells stands like a beacon. The Cathedral of St Mary and St Anne is just off shot to the right, out of this shot.

The County Hall can be seen far off in the distance out on the Carrigrohane Road. That building was once the tallest building in Ireland.

Look back further and you’ll see fields on the hills surrounding the city.

Silhouettes of the Walkers

Silhouettes of the Walkers

Walkers in Killarney National Park a week ago when I was there trying to photograph the stags. A huge group of people out on a Saturday morning when a storm passed overhead and thunder and lightning filled the air.

A few of us from Blarney Photography Club braved the elements for our photography!
