Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

3 Sep

This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is to take and post shots of the sea.

As I’m surrently living in the centre of Korea (I’m smack bang in the middle between North and South) I don’t have much access to the sea! However, I am extremely lucky that I come from an island totally surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and the Irish Sea and thus I will use this post to look back on all the good times I have had there and portray how beautiful Ireland really is.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Carefree

18 Aug

When I saw the title of this weeks photo challenge I knew immediately which photos I wanted to use. It should be noted that one of the shots below was not actually taken by me…it was in fact taken by my camera as it floated away into the sky.

I’m guessing it was feeling pretty carefree at the time, as the timer worked its charm, snapping aerial photos of my house and farm every 2 seconds as it began its journey West with not a worry in the world….except for the pull of the 20 colorful helium balloons to which it was tied to. 

Admittedly I’m sure my camera was feeling a lot more CAREFREE than I was! (To read more about the camera adventure, click HERE.)

The Deck of Cards

14 Aug

Last weekend I had 3 friends visiting from Holland and brought them to colorful Cobh for the day. On of my favorite things about Cobh is the ‘Deck of Cards’, a row of beautifully painting houses stacked up on a hill overlooking the town below. With the stunning St Colman’s Cathedral perched on a hill behind them, the houses make for some pretty amazing photos.

What do you think , fancy living here?

Flash Mob Cork: Dance into the weekend

11 Aug

Summer in Ireland this year fell on Friday 10th August, and what a beautiful summer it was. As luck would have it, some wise soul in Cork decided to organize a Flash Mob in Grand Parade so we could ‘dance into the weekend’ in style!

Normally flash mobs gather quickly, do something wacky, then quickly disperse. This one was different…and better! It lasted nearly an hour and everyone just danced their socks off, basking in the sunshine, and moving up and down and around the street to the beat, with not a car in the world! Here are a few pics I took before joining in the fun myself!

Happy Weekend Everyone!
