Eating or Politics?

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that concern us more than the big picture.

I’m sure I heard about Sean Garland on the news but for the life of me, I can’t remember when. There’s a lot more information on him on seangarland.org and Wikipedia.

Faces in the crowd

This is not just a trick of the zoom lens. The crowds in town on Saturday were like those around Christmas. Christmas lights are already up, but not lit, and there was an urgent air about the place.
This is the second shot of this scene and it turned out much better because of the human touch – the faces in the crowd.

Remembering Cork

The corner of Patrick’s Quay and Patrick’s Bridge in the 1930s and 2005. I barely remember Merchants Quay as a street lined with old 3 storey houses before the large shopping complex was built there and opened in 1989.
1930s picture taken by Robert Day, copyright Amy and Chris Ramsden, taken from the book “Forgotten Cork”. ISBN 1-903464-56-0

Waving at you!

He was holding a promotional sign in the middle of Patrick Street so I don’t feel too bad about looking over his shoulder and snapping this shot!

Patrick Street Lights

Car lights become abstract lasers of light along the main street of Cork City.

In unrelated news, this morning I had to go to the hospital because something got stuck underneath the eyelid of my left eye yesterday. I could feel it there, my eye was weeping, it was sore and annoying. Thankfully I got to see a doctor after only a wait of an hour or two. He quickly removed the foreign material and sent me packing with a prescription for eye drops which I have to take for 5 days. Yes, I took a camera, and got a great snap of an older gentleman at the local shopping center which I must post tomorrow when I have time. Now to catch up on work..

No Litter!

People are dirty and they litter our streets with packaging, plastic wrappers and junk.

Anyone For Jazz?

This weekend (today is a bank holiday) is the Cork Jazz Festival. People from all over the world come to Cork to participate – to play, to listen, or just get drunk and enjoy the festivities!

Cork Boi!

This young lad came running straight at me on Patrick’s Street with a big grin on his face with his mother following breathlessly after him!
I was with John and Ryan at the time. John came all the way down from Galway, the weather was bad but I’m glad we got out to take a few shots of the city!
