Light Trails in Blarney

Light Trails in Blarney

The red lights of a passing car streak across this photo taken in front of Christy’s in Blarney over the weekend.

The photo was a long exposure of 8 seconds, at f/4, ISO 100. I was shooting in manual mode and made sure the scene was under exposed by at least a stop. As f/4 was my widest aperture the lens captured as much of the red light as it could.

I took numerous shots of this scene and was bent over my camera (with my wallet under the lens to angle it upwards) so long that a woman came over asking if I had lost anything!

Wanna Go Home

2014-11-16-7055-m

Loud music, lots of strangers, a concrete jungle. I think this dog wants to go running in the fields.

Pictured on Sunday afternoon, Paul Street, Cork.

The fugitive can’t run fast enough!

The 96fm fugitive

The 96FM Fugitive is a character listeners of Cork radio station 96FM watch out for as DJs on the radio station give out clues as to his whereabouts. Find him and you’ll win a cash prize!

A few weeks ago they told people he was in Blarney and I was asked at least three times if I was the fugitive. OK, I hadn’t shaved that morning yet but did I really look that suspicious?

The beautiful smiling woman in the background is on a poster covering one of the front windows of the old Moderne premises on St Patrick’s Street, Cork.

While out with Blarney Photography Club we stopped to make some photos of this striking yellow background with passers by in front. There were five of us there so we were hardly inconspicuous but people kindly ignored us! 🙂

Still Pushing Buggies

Still Pushing Buggies

A new book featuring pictures of Cork was published recently, Cork in the 1960s. The front cover is a photo of two women pushing a buggy and a pram on St. Patrick’s Street.

I was on that street today and when I saw the book in the window of Waterstones I had to make this photo when I saw the opportunity.

It was nice to get out with Blarney Photography Club today on a photo walk!

In a world of their own

In a world of their own

This couple were engrossed in conversation walking across the busy junction of Washington Street and The Grand Parade without waiting for the lights. A moment later the man looked towards traffic and put his hand out to stop a car that was heading towards them!

Unbelievable.

Day 5 of ‪#‎FiveDayBlackAndWhiteChallenge‬. Since I was tagged 3 times I’ll continue for a while yet. Enjoying the black and white images?

The Curious Cow

The Curious Cow

One of the cows in a field on the grounds of Blarney Castle, Co Cork, Ireland. I’m not entirely happy with the cow in the background on the right but, meh. I love the texture of the cow’s hair on it’s face.

A lady in sunglasses caught me red handed taking a picture of her at the stall she was at in Patrick’s Street, Cork in July 2013 during some street festival.

Day 3 of the ‪#‎FiveDayBlackAndWhiteChallenge on Facebook for me and I was tagged by Ronan a few minutes ago to do it all over again so I’ll keep going for ten days!
