Stop Go Where to Go?

Rush-hour traffic in Cork is as bad as in any other city. I went the other way and took the back road to Blarney.

Road Narrows

Taken in Monkstown, Co. Cork last night.
Camera was handheld. I waited for a car to go past and with the camera set to AV mode and the flash on, I shot a 25 second exposure. I moved the camera from side to side to make the rear lights of the vehicle moreinteresting!
Added a cloud layer in post processing and set the layer mode to “subtract” to give the signs that nice weathered look.

Us on the tower

Painted with the light of a torch on a round tower in a local church yard late at night. If you look carefully you can even see stars in the sky! This page has some information about that tower:

The round tower in Waterloo (approx. 1 mile from Blarney) … … was built in the 1800’s by Fr. Matt Horgan, the then parish priest of Blarney.
