The trees along the Marina in Blackrock, Cork are bare at the this time of year but the sun shone today as if it was the height of Summer. It was lovely, even with the biting wind.
Shot from the grounds of Pairc Ui Chaoimh (no relation!) while out walking with my sister, my son Adam who slept quietly in his buggy, and my dog Oscar who loved the long walk.
A road winds into the hills north of Bantry. Yesterday’s photo of the Bantry hills was taken just up the road from here!
This is one of my favourite shots from the weekend in Bantry.
Basically I drove up the back roads out of Bantry town, then came to another town and picked the smallest road out of that place before going up a tiny little boithirin with barely room for my car. Wonderful.
A park bench in the lovely and picturesque Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork.
Something awful happened. I went away with my family on a great weekend break on Friday and in the rush and stress I forgot to post some photos for the weekend. I’m catching up!
The Nike Store, Niketown, on Union Square, San Francisco as seen in 2006.
This is the centre of Blarney village. It’s a lovely large green, enclosed on all sides by walls and with gates on the north and south sides.
Just goes to show, it’s not always raining in Ireland!
This is the private road to the estate on which Blarney Castle sits.
As I was walking about one late winter afternoon I spotted the lovely light shining through the trees and just had to take a snap!
Just over a month ago, some of the trees around here still had leaves. I took the camera with me one evening when we went for a walk around the park.
The leaves were a lovely bright and vibrant colour, but obviously this has been a little touched up in the GIMP afterwards! 🙂
