A shark at Kay O’Connell’s fishmongers

A shark’s deadly grin greeted customers to the fishmongers in the English Market on the day this photo was taken.

Don’t you just love the expression on the fishmonger’s face?

PS. Claire took some great portraits on Saturday!

Watching the fish underwater in Lanzarote

A young boy watches fish swim past on a boat off the coast of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands. The boat’s staff threw food overboard for the fish while the passengers went below decks to watch from the observation windows. As it was the start of the season in May, the boat was nowhere near full and everyone got a good look at the marine life swimming past.

This is the first picture I’ve posted from our honeymoon in Lanzarote last year. I took so many photos it’s daunting to look through them and pick out the ones I want to publish.

I lost my head

All that remains from a fishing trip to Cobh.

I discovered this fish’s head while walking about on the pier in Cobh during the month of August last year. At that time of year the mackerel
chase the sprat into Cork Harbour and provide a bountiful catch for local fishermen. Many years ago I remember casting into the waters off Church Bay and reeling in at least 4 fish, the feeding frenzy was so great!

PS. the new Digital Journalist is out!
