Crossing the Finish Line

Three girls run past the “Finish” line after the Blarney half marathon on Sunday.

It was a funny place to put that sign as it was well behind the actual finish line. Guess they didn’t have any poles to stick it up on ..

Light reflects on the Lough

Bull’s Tavern

The logo on his shirt, "Bull’s Tavern" caught my eye as we waited on the sidewalk for the lights to change.

This is near Union Square in San Francisco. Check out the Macy’s sign! Shopping heaven for those so addicted.

Clouds move at night

Clouds fly across the sky in this nighttime shot of Cork City. A crane is in the middle distance, practically a symbol of the City at this stage.

This is the side of the small gatehouse in Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork.

Oscar! Come here!

Imagine the scene. Out on a pier, I’m lying on the wooden beams over the low tide surf on the rocks below and I’m calling to my dog. Thankfully Oscar obliged and I made this photo as he walked towards me with his tongue half-hanging out of his mouth. There’s Jacinta in the background, she’s almost 9 months pregnant in this photo, but you probably can’t see the bump in this small image!

Cork University Maternity Hospital opened March 31st

Outside Cork University Hospital a proud poster announced that Cork University Maternity Hospital opened on March 31st. I can’t remember if it did, or was it a week later, but some smart arse added “Despite the best efforts of the HSE” above the main message. An obvious reference to the bullying tactics employed to get midwifes to work in the new an under-staffed hospital.

Sunlight in the city
