The irony is lost on Paul

dodgy-souvenier-seller

It’s about time I posted this. Months ago this photo on Flickr was spammed by a company selling “all of categories for industries and life”.

I’m sure he never looked closely at the title of the image or translated it in to his local language.. 🙂

Flickr Support promptly removed this individual’s comment and replied,

Dear Sir:

I am a vice director of Flickr Report Abuse Co., Ltd to
supply all of categories for photo-sharing industries and
life.

I am content to contact you for deleting this business.

Joe

I had to read it twice, but cracked me up once I got it! 🙂

Blackrock Farmer’s Market

blackrock market

Last weekend we went down to Blackrock Village, Cork to visit the farmer’s market and go for a walk along the Marina. It was our first time there in quite a while and it was a lovely surprise to see my cousin’s wife Louise at one of the stalls.

She sells beautiful jewelery so if you ever see any of the pieces above it’s Louise behind the stall, make sure to say hi from me!

Nice rounded frames in the photo above by Gingerpixel! Thank you!

Patrick’s Day Crowds

patricks day crowds

Enthusiastic crowds gather on South Mall in Cork for the St Patrick’s Day parade this year. As you can imagine it was pretty awful trying to see the parade with such a large crowd.

The hands at the bottom of the frame are those of a tall man who stood right in front of me. Lucky for me I stretched higher to get my photo!
