Build 'em up and knock 'em down

We build them up and then knock them down. It’s expected that demolition of empty houses and residential housing estates will be a boon for the construction industry before too long.

This is the junction in front of Emmett Place in Cork. Visible are the Cork Opera House and the cranes in the distance.

WordPress MU 2.7 is finally out. That’s taken quite a while to build but thanks to the GPL it won’t ever be broken down :)

Wild Woodbine

Wild Woodbine, an advert in Cronins Pub, sits under the counter. The pub is full of memorabilia which adds atmosphere but I suppose they were probably bought in a dusty warehouse full of such things for the tourists.

Very nice pub though.

Father Mathew’s Yoyo

Father Mathew's yoyo

The statue of Father Mathew, the “Apostle of Temperance”, is a prominent landmark in Cork City. It’s at one end of St. Patrick Street looking north to the river. Some joker gave him a yoyo to pass the time..

Good food causes cancer

good food causes cancer

If accompanied by a cigarette, any kind of good food isn’t going to help your increased risk of getting cancer from smoking.

Shot on Carey’s Lane a few weeks ago. The girl who left the cigarettes came back a moment after I took this shot. Have you noticed that more women smoke than men? Is that really the case?
