The Peace Park

The Peace Park

Many Cork people think the Peace Park is Bishop Lucey Park on the Grand Parade but it’s actually at the top of South Mall next to the Electric bar. It’s hard to blame them. If you do a search for cork peace park the first link goes to the Wikipedia page for Bishop Lucey park but at least the first paragraph there explains the mistake.

Pictured is the World War I memorial on the site.

Patrick’s Day Crowds

patricks day crowds

Enthusiastic crowds gather on South Mall in Cork for the St Patrick’s Day parade this year. As you can imagine it was pretty awful trying to see the parade with such a large crowd.

The hands at the bottom of the frame are those of a tall man who stood right in front of me. Lucky for me I stretched higher to get my photo!

Parked Motorbikes

Two motorbikes parked on the South Mall attracted my attention especially as a strong sun reflected off the clean chrome.

Yes, I know there’s a weird diagonal, yes it is distracting. Yes, it is intentional. Enjoy!

Leading lines and bright lights

Studs on the ground lead down to the traffic lights on the South Mall, Cork.

In this long exposure shot a couple of cars passed by providing a nice light trail in the background. The twinkling of the street lighting is from the narrow aperture. Setting the aperture as small as possible is definitely the best thing you can do when making long exposure shots at night.

This was taken while out with Mallow Camera Club last December. More to come from that night too!
