I took the one with bikes in Cork on Sunday. The one in black and white I took in October.

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.

So here it comes: my first serious attempt at street photography!
