Michael O’Regan and a Customer

Michael O’Regan is a well known sight on St. Patrick Street, Cork, selling the Evening Echo for over forty years from a couple of spots on the street.
Ten years ago I took a photo of him and promised I’d make a print for him. It took some time but last weekend I handed him a large print of that same photo. He was delighted, and posed for another photo along with a customer who had just bought a paper off him!

Humour on the Street

Humour on the street was the subject of the latest Cork Street Photography Meetup. While I didn’t actually meet any of the group in town as I was with my son I did get a few photos, and one qualifies as humorous. 🙂

Caught in the Rain

Caught in the Rain

Rain, sleet and snow fell in the space of five minutes a week ago during the Cork Streetphotography photowalk. These lads were caught in the middle of it on St. Patrick’s Street.

Some photos from the Irish Water protest in Cork last Saturday. A huge crowd gathered and braved the bitter wind and rain and snow to march through the city.

The statue of Fr Mathew on St Patrick Street stands still as cars, people and a bus move all around.

The fugitive can’t run fast enough!

The 96fm fugitive

The 96FM Fugitive is a character listeners of Cork radio station 96FM watch out for as DJs on the radio station give out clues as to his whereabouts. Find him and you’ll win a cash prize!

A few weeks ago they told people he was in Blarney and I was asked at least three times if I was the fugitive. OK, I hadn’t shaved that morning yet but did I really look that suspicious?

The beautiful smiling woman in the background is on a poster covering one of the front windows of the old Moderne premises on St Patrick’s Street, Cork.

While out with Blarney Photography Club we stopped to make some photos of this striking yellow background with passers by in front. There were five of us there so we were hardly inconspicuous but people kindly ignored us! 🙂
