Grab your bag and run!

Grab your bag and run! I’m not sure where this is. We sheltered from a very heavy rain storm and watched while people ran for cover from all over. Thankfully the storm didn’t last too long and I wandered to Millennium Park!

Old Navy’s Fred

Old Navy’s Fred If you wander into the Old Navy Store on State Street in Chicago you may bump into Fred. He has worked there for years, he’s very patient, nice and accommodating and did his level best to help us get the best bargains while shopping! This isn’t a great photo, it was a […]

Get There, Go Anywhere

Get There, Go Anywhere Bicycle locked up and bus arriving on the Grand Parade a few nights ago. It’s been quite a while since I used either forms of transport. What caught your eye first about this image? The poster, the foreground or the bus?

Ladies free all night

Ladies free all night Mangans nightclub on Carey’s Lane has been a regular haunt of nightclubbers in Cork for many years.
