Crossing the street on St. Patrick’s Quay, Cork.
Feeding a horse in a field near Dingle in Co. Kerry.
It was a gorgeous beautiful day last September. The sky was blue and dotted with clouds and the sun shone brightly.
Guinness, world famous stout brewed in Dublin, Ireland. It’s also the tipple every tourist to the country samples but I prefer beer myself! 🙂
This is a sign on a pub on Bridge Street. It’s the one on the corner near Vibes and Scribes. What’s it called?
A boy grins with delight after the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork this year. And why wouldn’t he? He’s sitting tall over everyone else!
Larry Tompkins bar is in the background. It was packed with the day’s crowd.
PS. The May issue of Digital Journalist has been out for a few days. I’m only now getting to look at it. Maybe. Adam is crying in the background. afk again!
I jumped at the chance to make this photo when I saw the colour of the Heatons bag and the Super Valu advert on the bus shelter. Only later did I notice just how well the red or wine colours match!
Is there a subtle marketing ploy at play here?
A young man enjoying the sun on a warm September afternoon on Cork’s main thoroughfare, St. Patrick’s Street, or Panna as it’s sometimes known locally. That’s probably an iPod he’s listening to isn’t it?
Barratts shoe shop is in the background. The side of that shop is visible in Walk This Way.
PS. Haydn has blogged about the new gallery in West Cork he’s opening. I’ll be exhibiting there, as long as I can find time to get a few images printed and framed. Haydn says Ryan is contributing too which I didn’t know! Ryan – must talk to you about printing, framing and sizes! Conor picked up on it too. Harbour View is just down the road for him so I shall expect to see you there on the 31st!
A JCB helps to dig up the Grand Parade in Cork. This was shot last September and like the previous couple of shots, this street is completely different now. It’s looking well, although the fancy stonework is begining to lose it’s shine. The chewing gum is sticking, and the fumes of a living city blacken and dirty the white and red stone of the surface.
Still, it looked nice when it was completed. They’re just finishing off bits of the Grand Parade now so it’s interesting to see the difference between the new surface and the older.
If that couple were to walk along the Grand Parade now they’d be in the middle of a busy street but back in August last year it was still a building site.
Wondering what Cork looked like over 20 years ago? Take a look at these photos!
Just outside the Peace Park on Grand Parade in Cork an exuberant teenager went running towards me and I was lucky enough to grab this shot before they ran past!
