Tricolour Boy

A young boy sits on his dad’s shoulders to get a bird’s eye view of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork this year. This image reminds me of a photo I shot of a girl last year. She was standing on a wall or something and up high too! Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOSRead More »

Patrick’s Day Spectator

A spectator watching the St Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork yesterday climbed up on the National Monument on the Grand Parade to get a better view. Lucky him.

Musical Sunglasses

A brass band played in front of Cork City Library today and I made this shot while waiting with Phil and his brother Christopher for Damien to appear. We didn’t make it to Robodock in the end. I was busy and exhausted with a sick baby all morning and I think I’m lucky I managedRead More »
