This is the apartment block that sprang up opposite the car park, from which I took this photo.
The building itself is a dull grey monstrosity. Large windows look out on the street, hardly offering any privacy for residents. Tiny balconies sit outside some of the windows.
An ice cream van in December? Yes, Mr Whirly was in Kinsale. Obviously someone isn’t bothered by the cold!
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.
Light trails from passing cars fill the frame with a golden glow on the corner of The Grand Parade and Washington Street, Cork.
Long exposure shot made possible by the traffic light switch on which I rested my camera!
Christmas Baubles hang in Porter’s newsagent, Cork. Christmas decoration is everywhere but reflective surfaces present an opportunity to take a self portrait. Yes, that’s me reflected! 🙂
Hope you had a great Christmas Day. We went travelling and I must say it was the best Christmas Day in a long time. I think I must invest in a WII next year…
Freeze what you’re doing. Right now. The world has stopped.
A busy moment on Patrick’s Street, Cork captured forever.
I liked this image because of the solitary motorcycle rider, but then I noticed all the activity: the people walking, cars *all over* the frame, the parked security truck with the driver leaning over to get his papers.
The Christmas lights on Carey’s Lane shine brightly in this long exposure shot.
The exposure is so long that crowds of people walked past, some apologising, without evening showing up on the final image! The only person visible is a homeless guy sitting in a doorway. I love how the Christmas lights came out in this. f/22 does lovely things to points of light.
This was taken one evening while in town and I had a few moments to spare. Get out the camera, crouch down and put the wallet under the lens to point it up a bit. Perfectly still, without a tripod!
While I shot this I realised where this photo was taken! See the No Parking sign?
Two teenage girls on Patrick’s Street, Cork. One is lost in thought, while the other chats away.
Do you recognise the Special K poster in the background?
A young girl waits for her food in Abrakebabra, Patrick St. in Cork. Her hard expression is softened by the little hearts on her jumper, but somehow I think she can stand up for herself ..
Good news! My car passed the NCT this morning! 🙂
