A girl sitting in the warm roasting sun in Kinsale, Co Cork last summer. Decisive moment? She smiled in the next moment!

A young girl on Patrick’s Street pushes her buggy with her mothercare bag. See the face she’s making? She means business!
A young girl leans on a traffic light where she has a bird’s eye view of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork.
A young girls waves her Irish flag in the air after spotting part of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork approaching.
I shot several decent shots but it’s late and I’m tired. I was quite disappointed with the parade and left after half an hour. Like previous years there were huge gaps between some of the groups partaking in the parade.
It was strange to see the Special Olympics group striding up Patrick’s Street all alone with no other group in sight. They proudly showed off their medals and the crowd cheered and clapped for them. I’ll have a photo of them up here later in the week.
Girls feed the swans at the Lough on Sunday afternoon.
Urban acid 🙂
Will posted his first photo from the day on his blog. He did arrive late, but he made up for lost time!
On the night when firemen closed off Dorothy Perkins in Cork, a few people saw my camera and presumed I was a photojournalist. Some even asked what was happening but I didn’t know!
Anyway, these two girls wanted their photo taken. They presumed I was with the Evening Echo but I told them photography was just my hobby. Still, got a nice photo considering I was shooting by available light.
I don’t want to be reminded how high I had to shove the ISO to get a decent shutter speed. Thankfully resizing loses some of the noise!
PS. we passed by the shop a few days ago. A sign on the door says, “Closed until further notice”. Does anyone know what happened there?
A group of girls from a local school sang Christmas carols in Blackpool Shopping Centre earlier today.
They were brilliant! I wasn’t much in the mood for listening but they lifted my spirits. They were full of life, happy, joyful and really seemed to be enjoying the experience.
Unfortunately we were in a hurry or I’d have stopped to ask what school they were from. Does anyone know? Their uniforms were purple..
