Watering Hole

June 22, 2011 Bronica ETRS, Cork

It must be the very first time I got all the way through scanning three entire 120 rolls of Velvia without swearing loudly and thrashing my arms like a mad man. Anyone that’s ever been in that position will know that what you get on screen is a hell of a lot different than what you get when you hold the developed film up to daylight. Although these shots might not be the best examples of what Velvia is goodRead More

Place to be

March 8, 2011 Bronica ETRS, Cork, Film, Landscape

The weather is beginning to turn again and although some Donegal weather forecasting prophet has predicted more snow in the next couple of weeks, I think I’ll take a chance on a green Patricks day instead of a white one. So yeah, weather turning. Thoughts of getting back out and taking some landscapes. Loaded up lightroom and this jumped out of my catalog list. It’s from an almost forgotten roll of velvia I scanned some time back. I’m pretty sureRead More

All Things Cyclical

February 3, 2011 Cork, Dublin, iphone, Landscape, People

I can’t remember exactly the exact time it happened or any specific reason but apparently all of a sudden an iphone and two cheap applications have seen my 5D and modest yet highly functioning lens collection abandoned to a darkened corner of the spare room. I’ve never been a kind to practice street photography to any great degree so I don’t imagine that it’s out of convenience. It’s certainly not because the phone is a better camera than a nowRead More

Fragment

December 1, 2010 Canon 5D, Cork, Event, People

I’m sure all the Cork people will spot what/where this is, despite the lack of detail

Bread and Water

November 25, 2010 Black and White, Canon 5D, Cork, Event

Insufficient lodgings at the Cork Gaol. I guess hardwood floors and a place to rest your weary head is better than nothing. No playstations or conjugal visits.

November Walk

November 24, 2010 Canon 5D, Cork, Event, Landscape

Sometimes you get nice days in November too. Just in time for the Cork Photowalk.

Gaolbirds

Outside the Gaol for the Cork photowalk. Weather played nicely, very nicely in fact. Thanks to all who showed up. 11 down, 1 to go.

Great Things to Come

September 11, 2010 Canon 5D, Cork, Diana, Landscape

The Cork photowalk. West Cork. Sheeps head to be exact. When people say ‘go to your happy place’ this is at the top of an ever lengthening list.

Worlds End Fence

The barbed wire fence at the end of the world. Sheeps Head in West Cork.

Overcooked Hills

Off to that castle again tomorrow so won’t be posting over the weekend. Looking out on a contrast ++ sea from the top of Goats Path in West Cork. Just before winding down the other side of the hill into Kilcrohane and onto the headland.

Gardens of Napoli

Almost, but not quite… Photowalkers doing their thing during the June get together in west Cork. This particular stop was Garinish Island, one stop after Gougane Barra but one before the impromptu ‘it’s too early to go drinking yet’ trip to Sheeps Head. One of the best photowalks yet, if only because this time I know the area I was traipsing around. Half way there now, only 6 photowalks to go!

Only in Kenyaaaaa

January 18, 2010 Black and White, Canon 5D, Cork

And in Fotaaaaa! Fota Wildlife Park of course. Thought these chaps looked a bit more striking in black & white. While you’re in a link clicking mood, nominations for the Blog Awards have started over at Blog Awards HQ. Head on over and spare a thought for your favorite blogger.

You Dancin?

Part of the finally finished set from Kev & Eithne’s wedding in July. Hell of a night. Your turn next Foss…

Pet Sematary

November 15, 2009 Canon 5D, Cork, Event

Mixed reports circulated on this spot for years. Appears to be closed now, possibly for the better. Better not to delve too deep into the details to save my more sensitive visitors. The old animals home on the quays in Cork.

Sit this one out

Eoin standing the balcony overlooking the dancefloor at Kevs wedding. Carefully guarding his fresh pint of Murphys. In the background, a couple of those pesky bloody photographers. Flicking back through these reminds me that I still have to get the rest of Kev & Eithne’s wedding photos processed. It’ll happen before the end of the year, of that I’m sure!

I’m Here

November 6, 2009 Canon 5D, Cork, Event

Cork is where the heart is… It’s also where we are for the weekend. Still posting photos from the photowalk in Cork some time ago. Don’t expect anything new until Monday night!

Around Blackrock

October 26, 2009 Canon 5D, Cork, Event, Landscape

The opposite side to another shot posted previously. Looking back on Tivoli as we circle around to head back. It’s all gone a bit Cork this weekend. Hope anyone that traveled to get some jazz into them enjoyed it and similarly, I hope anyone that traveled to get away from the jazz enjoyed that. I suspect we’re just walking in the door back from the airport about now, having spent a lovely weekend in Scotland. God bless the person whoRead More

R&H Hall

October 25, 2009 Canon 5D, Cork, Event

Lets call this ‘Part Two’ then shall we?

The R&H

October 24, 2009 Canon 5D, Cork, Event

Kinda ‘Part One’ possibly, I’ve taken so many shots of this building but few ever see the light of day. Mostly because all you can see of it is a big, depressing, grey concrete slab. But then that kinda fits in with the docks…

Bike Parking

October 23, 2009 Canon 5D, Cork, Event, Macro

Chained up to the railings outside the Odlums building on the docks. Possibly a bike, possibly something else entirely. Eh… Maybe a large, rabid turnip? Whatever it was and however rabid it was, it’s long gone now.
