  1. I know , I was answering his question. The link I posted gives info on applying for one before he arrives.
  2. Fyi https://www.citizensinformation.ie/en/social_welfare/irish_social_welfare_system/personal_public_service_number.html
  3. Sorry, the local police station. Or in Irish an garda siochana, it's where you go to speak to an immigration representative.
  4. I would suggest Calling the citizens advice in Sligo as a place to start in regards to obtaining a pps. I couldn't get a straight answer for a works visa for my American wife when we called the embassy from the usa , so she flew over on a travel visa waiver , went to the local guard station and they sorted it there and then. Ireland can be funny like that sometimes. Not like when I got my us green card. Good luck Ed, Sligo is a bit on the small side but I like it a lot. Shame you are probably priced out of cork city as unlike Dublin it is such a walk friendly city with
  5. Hi Ed, A lot of places rent out via word of mouth in Ireland as the tax is very high on rentals income. There is a decent enough Hospital in Oranmore and it really doesn't rain as much as people think, although on saying that the odd summer can be cold and miserable. Not sure about editorial but in regards to general photography the Maamturks and that whole area is one of the most beautiful spots in the world. I have lived in the UK and a few places in the USA and while Ireland certainly has its problems there is no other country in the world I would rather live.
  6. Yes! It commands you to photograph it. Probably one for the instagram account though
  7. I prefer the term socialist realism, turned in to a right architect geek since taking up stock photography. Nice shots of Gdansk
  8. and Gloucester too by the looks of it. Lol. Trying to find good neighborhoods with traces of the old Communist regime, sadly the city was mostly flattened by the Nazis
  9. Hello Forum, I have a few days planned in this Capital and was wondering what was worth seeing and possibly photographing? Many thanks
  10. Had taken some time off due to a bereavement and just checked in to see my first sale. As is a common theme it was a photo I almost didn't upload but just goes to show. Thanks to everyone here in making this forum such a good resource. https://www.alamy.com/image-details-popup.asp?Imageid=BF6BF86B-16A8-4AC4-A560-B96F74C27BDB
  11. https://www.instagram.com/jrodg_photos/ Just a few pics of Ireland.
  12. What if the artist is selling prints or he is selling images of his artwork online? you can put a lot of your own creativity into photographing a building , but when you walk up to a mureal and shoot it straight on. Well your just a button pressing monkey....
  13. It could affect your upload rating. I take them for my own personal pleasure but I don't upload them. I wouldn't feel comfortable making money off someone else's artistic creation.
  14. HI Russel , thanks I know of the bellvelly smokehouse in Cobh and I believe they have a store in the English market. https://www.frankhederman.com ? I would also agree with your choice of the beara and west Cork, Spent many a summer holiday there as a child.
  15. So I am taking the family to Spain for a couple of weeks and was wondering what all you knowlegable folks here would recommend seeing and photographing. I am staying in a couple of places near Avila and Segovia, I particularly love small towns with lots of character as well as old churches and castles. cheers
  16. As others mentioned cork city and the surrounding area is not to be missed, it is very compact with lots to see and photograph such as the English market , st fin barres cathedral, shandon, cork gaol and even an Elizabethan fort if you look hard enough:) , Spike and fota island as well as Blarney castle are very close to the city. Probably my favourite place in the world. further up my way are the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren , Bunratty castle and folk park all worth seeing too. Just don't drive yourself mad trying to fit everything in, so much to see...
  17. Thanks Mark, its appreciated, and yes I do shoot raw and manual to ensure I do not clip either end of the histogram, but perhaps I need to adjust the tonal curve to bring out more shadow detail as Wim also mentioned . Save my preferences for my own website.
