Mangans nightclub on Carey's Lane has been a regular haunt of nightclubbers in Cork for many years. I haven't frequented this establishment in a long time but I bet it's exactly the same inside! Is it called Vibes now? I saw that logo above this sign.

Bois d'ébène - Ebony wood

"Bois d'ébène" était l'expression utilisée par les négriers français quand ils parlaient des esclaves. L'ébène de la clarinette pourrait être le symbole de l'oppression des noirs et l'or des clés celui de la richesse accumulée par les esclavagistes.
La ville de Bordeaux fut malheureusement le premier port négrier de France pendant près de 200 ans.
Bien que Louis Armstrong ait toujours joué de la trompette, cette chanson me paraissait appropriée.

"Ebony wood" was the expression used by the French slave traders when they spoke about the slaves. The ebony of the clarinet could be the symbol of the oppression of Black people and the golden keys the one of the richness accumulated by the slave owners.
The city of Bordeaux was unfortunately the first slave trader harbour in France for nearly 200 years.

That says it all very well put!-koduckgirl

Peace Lily


Peace Lily, originally uploaded by algo.

Favourite indoor plant - likes my house.
By the window on this dull day - time to use the tripod. Lovely depth of focus. But I missed cuddling the camera, so took a few hand held, lens wide open. And this is one of those. They just feel better, and I even like the fallen pollen oof.

Nature is amazing in-a-it?-koduckgirl

The reflection made this - the duality of the duck and its shadows - the right light I guess

Shot handheld with the trusy 300mm lens again on AV, cropped and curves tweaked to enhance the feathers - this just works for me.

Does it work for you?

Dusk At Marinha


Dusk At Marinha, originally uploaded by acampm1.

This is the main stack on Marinha Beach, between Benagil and Porches in the Algarve, South Portugal, caught at dusk.

I needed three trips to catch the shot for technical reasons (OK, first time I had dust in the AF, second time I got lost), which gave me time to think about it.

In my view this is one of Europe's most attractive beaches.

There is a set dedicated to it if anyone fancies a look.

An amazing rock AND photo!-koduckgirl

The anhinga from downtown. He was a bird with attitude.

(I've only enhanced the color of the photo and sharpend the feathers (maybe a bit of contrast, but I can't remember). The water is not edited, it looks the way it does because it's reflecting the sky and the buildings on the other side of the lake)

They have some amazing birds in Florida!-koduckgirl
