One man's trash is another man's treasure.

I was looking for something to photograph for the last week's photo challenge. I did not find much to photograph at home for this but I found something when window shopping in Killarney. Here it comes so. A bit late again but I want to post it nevertheless. I liked it and I think it was the best thing of the whole Christmas window display.

Routine / scheduled

I have been thinking so about our routines - school, homework, housework. Tooth brushing would be the big one on the list. Some scheduled things came to my mind - like watching the long awaited Late Late Toy show last Friday night. Somehow those routines though were hard to capture though, especially when my model kids are moving with speed of light. I could take a photo of them sleeping ... sweet ... but it is a bit too dark then!

The photo I am putting up tonight is of a routine which is like a ritual - having coffee in Butlers Chocolate nearly every time I am in Cork. It always goes together with complimentary chocolate praline. Well, this time I tried a macaron too...
Short and sweet challenge :-)

Symmetric shapes photo challenge

With this week's theme, no luck really. I could not find any interesting symmetrical shapes. Repeating patterns, yes, plentiful, but I did not have more time to hunt for symmetry. What's more I lost count of days and missed the deadline! Well, here come the images anyway.
I took the one with bikes in Cork on Sunday. The one in black and white I took in October.

Fighting the battle

Last week, to stay motivated, I decided to take on the weekly photographic challenges, as described here. So, I am not sure yet how I will go about "gunpowder, treason, and plot" challenge. However, for "fighting the battle" one I came across a photo when in Cork yesterday.
On South Mall, there is the First World War memorial and every November one can find lots of wreaths there. So when I saw the monument with the wreaths around and crosses, I knew it going to be the image I had been looking for. Here it is:

Shoot like Bert Hardy ...

So, after long time, the moment has come to revive my old blog. It is mainly for my newly rediscovered passion for photography. From time to time I will be posting my photos from our my outings or for photographic daily / weekly challenges. First photos to go are from a recent trip to Cork for street shooting. Our inspiration for November meeting was Bert Hardy but it was very hard to capture social interaction and humane condition so well recorded in his work.
So here it comes: my first serious attempt at street photography!
