We stayed in The Randles Court Hotel in Killarney, Co. Kerry last February and one night I wandered out to take a few shots.
This was a long exposure shot, with the aperture closed down as much as possible to f/22.
Lovely hotel too!
A small boy waits outside Brown Thomas with his dad while I presume his mother shops inside.
I had plenty of company while I waited!
Waiting outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street in Cork and texting. She’s waiting for someone.
A look inside the old Christian Brother school on Sullivan’s Quay in Cork.
The place is a mess. Desks and tables thrown about. Computer monitors sit staring into space and a basketball ring attached to the far wall unused for who knows how long.
The old Christian Brother’s school on Sullivan’s Quay was put up for auction and sold recently. It’s in a prime city centre location but is also a very old building.
My brother attended there briefly when the Model School transferred from Anglesea St near the end of it’s life.
Tomorrow, a picture looking in.
While walking back to the car after the Cobh Rambler’s game a few weeks ago I made this picture of a sign on the road.
I find it strange that out of the 600-odd images I took that day, this is the first image I’ve uploaded..
Lovely bright daffodils to brighten up your gloomy November Monday morning!
This was taken way back on March 18th this year on the same day I shot these daffodils! The image has been sitting in my WIP folder for months but after my gimp lomo post I decided to post this in a larger format.
Post processing: Auto-levels, gimp lomo and save. Resized version has been sharpened and I could have done more with the dodge and burn tool to bring out the detail in the flowers but this will have to do.
The buildings of the Grand Parade in Cork face away from the setting sung on a cold February afternoon earlier this year. Cork bathes in the frosty sunlight.
This image was of course made of two images, one for the sky and one for the city. It was handheld and shot using the bracketing function (AEB) on the Canon 20D. The image isn’t perfect. My hand moved between frames but it’s only noticeable at the horizon if you look carefully.
I wonder if the teenager wearing this hoodie realised the irony of wearing a garment decorated with cassette images, a piece of technology he may not ever have used. The Wikipedia page has a lot more to say on the subject.
This was shot outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street, Cork while I wheeled Adam around in his buggy.
