Weird World

Sometimes your world is just a little off kilter and not completely level.

Football on the beach

3 boys playing with a football on Garretstown Beach. The tide was coming in and I watched them kick the ball out into the water. The day was freezing though with a strong offshore wind. Brrrr.

View on Camden Quay

Camden Quay in Cork City with the north side of the City behind it. St. Anne’s (or Shandon Bells) and the Catholic North Cathedral in the background.

Loved the light when I saw this scene. The setting sun cast shadows on the buildings and reflected off the church steeples.

Scrap Saturday

I loved this show while it was broadcast and I even have the multi-CD compilation that came out a couple of years ago too.

Technology is ever changing. I don’t think I’ve recorded anything off the radio in years and the last time I did, I used the station’s Internet broadcast piped into mencoder to save it on my computer. No more cassettes.

Hands up those who have never used a cassette like this? I bet that number will grow and grow as the years go by…
