Photo 101 : Day 20 – Triumph

The Robin and the Eagle

The Robin and the Eagle

I think this little robin was  quite pleased with himself as he perched triumphantly on top of the Eagle!  He had the advantage of being able to take flight at the first sign of danger, but stayed long enough for me to catch a quick photo.

Chapel of St.George

Chapel of St.George

These stained glass windows in Chichester Cathedral may have different pictures in each one, but apart from that they are similar in every way, in fact doubles!

 

Mr Snowman and his little brother!

When I visited my local garden centre, the two brothers above were waiting  to greet me at the door, they are very cute, and for the next month I am sure we will see plenty of the Snowman family in various places.

 

 

Photo 101 : Day 18 – Edge

You have so many choices!

My photo today is an evening shot taken in the centre of Westport, County Mayo – it gives me the edge, with a lot of options for nice places to visit.

The next photo of one of the places mentioned on the sign post – Croagh Patrick – the mountain that overlooks Westport, and which you can see from most parts of the town – I think it also fits the challenge of having the edge!

Just one more Glass photo I just had to share.

Old telephone box

Old telephone box

The old telephone box, pictured above, is something that is not seen or used very much anymore, with practically everyone now having their own mobile phone, which makes communication so much easier. I can remember spending lots of time in telephone boxes when growing up, or queuing outside one while the person in the box holds a long conversation with their friend/lover/parent or whatever.   Even worse was the frustration of finding the right change, walking to the nearest phone box, only to find that it was out of order or worse still, that the handpiece was missing or broken….Oh the joys of the olden days!!!

I took this photo last night, but I didn’t check inside the booth, so I am not sure if it is still a working telephone, or just there as a reminder of things past.

Photo 101 : Day 15 – Landscape

2014-05-18 14.01.22

Today’s challenge is Landscape.   I enjoy hillwalking and for that reason, I have many many photos of landscapes taken here in Ireland, and in other countries also.  The photo above was taken on top of the Galtee Mountains in Tipperary, with hills as far as the eye can see, and down below you can see the path that brought us to this spot!

My second shot is from Zimbabwe.   Travelling on the road towards Mana Pools and the Zambezi river,this is a view point on the escarpment, where you can see nothing but bush land, all the way to the Zambian hills.

Photo 101 : Day 13 – Moment

A moment in time to celebrate a special birthday – sip it and enjoy the bubbles, they are gone in a moment!

Cheers, Happy Birthday

Photo 101 Day 12 – Architecture

Every time we see an unusual or interesting building, we remember that it’s all down to the architecture, which makes the building pleasing, or otherwise, to the eye.

My photos were taken at John Lennon Airport in Liverpool yesterday, and the car park is cleverly disguised by the colourful panels, as you can see.  Some of the panels are made out of coloured glass, that reflect the airport building and it’s surroundings.

I converted the photo to monochrome, with a bluish tinge, which also looks interesting, with the blue sky in the background.

With a hint of blue.

Photo 101 : Day 9 – Warmth

Today is not the best day for taking photos with warmth here in Cork, so instead here is an early morning shot taken recently at the golf club, with the sun tentatively peeping out from under the covers, and wondering if it will get up and shine!

Early morning sun

And this view of  the fertile valley called The Golden Vale in County Tipperary looks wonderful  in the warmth of the sun.

Photo 101 : Day 8 – The Natural World

Following on from yesterday’s photos of the Drake Sail, this is a shot taken further down the river, at Drake’s Pool, where many boats are moored and sheltered by the natural harbour and the bend in the river,  keeping the worst of the winds from the sea away.

Then again, nature is not always kind and serene, and during a very severe storm in Ireland earlier this year, many large old trees like this one were destroyed by the force of nature.
