His and Hers

Two ducks in the bird sanctuary outside Blarney. I took this back in May 2005 on the same day as this one.
This one’s for Matt!

Hazel O’Connor live in An Cruiscin Lan, Cork

Hazel O’Connor performed in An Cruiscin Lan last night. She has a great voice, and her songs are very emotionally charged and from the heart.
I loved how she told a short story about each song. It really brought it home how her mind works.

Man in the hat

While in Wilton Shopping Center after having my eye looked at I spotted the man in the hat talking to an elderly woman. I only had my Panasonic FZ5 with me but it’s got a good zoom and a great image stabilizer!
He broke out into a big grin moments after I took this shot!

The Bride and Groom

On the weekend that we had our pre-marriage course, a wedding was held in the Honan Chapel in UCC. Here’s the Bride and Groom greeting people after the ceremony.
No doubt they’re all partying away in some hotel now!

Yellow Flower

Originally posted on todayismygifttoyou.ie this was an entry for Today FM’s Us Day.

In this image, a bright yellow flower takes center stage against a backdrop of pale red blocks with painted black mortar between them. The contrast between the vibrant yellow and the muted red creates a striking visual effect, drawing the eye to the delicate petals of the flower. The black mortar lines provide a sense of structure and order to the composition, framing the flower and highlighting its beauty. Despite the simplicity of the scene, the careful arrangement of colors and shapes creates a sense of depth and texture, evoking the warmth and vibrancy of a summer day.
