Big Wheel in the Showgrounds

Big Wheel in the Showgrounds

The big wheel, as seen from The Atlantic Pond outside Pairc Ui Chaoimh in Cork.

Sort of fitting that I post a photo of a fairground ride on the day that Michael Jackson is laid to rest.

BTW – there are still places on the Cork photowalk on the 18th. It’s less than 2 weeks now! Anyone have any suggestions about where to go afterwards? Old Oak perhaps? Would they be serving any sort of food around 4pm? It’ll be hard to find a restaurant that could fit up to 50 of us and we’d be stuck sitting down at a table, not mingling and chatting.
I know, we pop into Burger King first eh? 🙂

Clouds drift over the River Lee across from Blackrock Village about a week ago.

I’m trying out the preview of Bibble 5 Pro at the moment. Great DAM features, although it is starting to slow down after importing about 90,000 images and it’s reading from an external USB 2.0 drive.

Hillside Chains

hillside chains

Rusted chains lie on the ground near the walkway to the Mizen Head Lighthouse.

Just saw Star Trek. In my head it was the best thing since sliced bread but it was still a great film. Loved the little nods to the original series. Definitely worth going to see!

Thatched Roof in Bunratty

A thatched roof on one of the cottages in Bunratty Folk Park, County Clare.

There’s one ugly open mine right next door but it’s well hidden. I had no idea it was there until I checked Google Maps a minute ago!
