Walking Patrick’s Bridge

Pictured walking along Patrick’s Bridge, Cork on Saturday evening. What really attracts me to this image, despite it’s obvious flaws, is the figure in the dead-centre. There’s light all around yet here’s a walking shadow.

Trees and Lights

On a trip to our local shopping centre last night I noticed these lovely twinkly blue lights on the small trees outside. All I had to do was set the camera to aperture priority mode, set it to f/22 and wait for a carto come along!

Boole woz ‘ere

George Boole, the inventor of boolean algebra lived in the last house on the right of this photo from 1849 to 1855.

I’m certain that most Cork people pass this house daily and haven’t a clue as to it’s previous occupant’s contribution to the world we live in today.

Patrick Street Lights

Car lights become abstract lasers of light along the main street of Cork City.

In unrelated news, this morning I had to go to the hospital because something got stuck underneath the eyelid of my left eye yesterday. I could feel it there, my eye was weeping, it was sore and annoying. Thankfully I got to see a doctor after only a wait of an hour or two. He quickly removed the foreign material and sent me packing with a prescription for eye drops which I have to take for 5 days. Yes, I took a camera, and got a great snap of an older gentleman at the local shopping center which I must post tomorrow when I have time. Now to catch up on work..

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.
