The Crow and the Wheel

The Crow and the Wheel

The Ferris Wheel on the Grand Parade is gone now but just recently a crow was checking it out to see if it was fun or not.

Storage Tanks on the Docklands

Storage Tanks on the Quays

This won’t win any awards for beauty but it’s part of the old industry of the city along the docklands. While this old building looms overhead lots of people were enjoying a warm June day at the Marina Market. Open air seating was all full with people enjoying their lunches.

I have no doubt these buildings will be gone in a few years, hopefully to be replaced by a thriving community of businesses and homes.

Sunset on the road

Sunset on the road

A single exposure at 1/30 of a second because the road, even if it is in rural Ireland on the Dingle Peninsula. Cars drove past at most every 5-6 minutes.

Lightroom’s new masking tools were really helpful working on this image.

Swing around away up high

Swing around away up high

The Star Flyer brings people 40m up before swinging them around. Exciting stuff, but I declined. Bumpers and Waltzers were enough for me. 🙂
