Aerfort Chorcai

“Corcaigh”. Ainm an aerfort ar barr an foirgneamh i Mí Nollaig 2004.

The old airport building was closed in 2006. I left from that building and returned to the new building. Oddly enough my photo archive shows I wasn’t away on the 15th August 2006 so they obviously didn’t start using the new building straight away.

Eleven Years Apart

Eleven Years Apart

Eleven Years Apart

The photos above were shot eleven years apart. The first was shot in 2004 while the second was shot only a few weeks ago in early February, 2015. You may recognise the man. He sells newspapers in the St. Augustine’s Church, on the corner of Washington Street and Grand Parade. I presented him with a print of both photos and I think he was quite taken with them. Unfortunately I didn’t get his name while I talked with him as a customer came along but I’ll ask him next time!

The Cat Yawns

The Cat Yawns

Zara yawns as she ponders the meaning of life. No. She just wants to know when her next meal will be.

This was taken just over 10 years ago when Zara was but a kitten, she’s a little bigger now! I shot this with my ancient Sony F717, my favourite camera of all time. It’s “only” 5MP, and horrendous at night but it had a cool infra red mode and I loved how the body of the camera swivelled around the lens. Unfortunately the motherboard in it failed prompting me to jump ship to a Canon DSLR!

Fred Fans Go Wild!

Fred Fans

Two enthusiastic fans of Cork band, Fred, when they played at the May Day celebrations in Cork back in 2005. I loved their first album, but the second one was just more of the same. Great to hear and watch live though!

Daisies in the grass

Daisies in the grass

This is really looking back into the archives. I shot this in 2004, probably with the Sony 717 and at a guess probably in the park near the Gun Powder Mills in Ballincollig. Long time ago. Lovely day!

The Old Lady of Madrid

Way back in 2003 I visited my friend Cachu and her family in Madrid.
I had a great time there and took a load of photos but it was months later before I posted any photos.
This is a shot of an old woman sitting in a park enjoying the autumn sunshine somewhere in Madrid. Unfortunately I was quite far away from her and had to use the “digital zoom” of my Sony 717 to get this close so the quality isn’t the best but I really liked this image.
