A fire hydrant in San Francisco. Given the history of the city, there are hydrants everywhere ..
They are 58x43cm prints, are mounted on a raised plinth with a deep frame and all images are signed by the artist. That’s what I was doing in Rob’s workshop on Monday!
Haydn went to extra ordinary lengths to have these images printed to the highest standards. As he puts it himself,
An additional problem is I wanted to print at a very high standard. Courtesy of Hewlett Packard I eventually got to use their z3100 and z 6100 machines which print with 12 and 8 inks respectively. I also wanted to use heavy durable paper and Vivera inks which have a no-fade lifespan exceeding 150 years.
Haydn, it was worth the extra effort. The prints are gorgeous!
Little baby Adam passed another major milestone in his life yesterday. Last night he slept in his own room for the first time!
He slept soundly until about 3am, woke and made a bit of fuss until he fell asleep again until about 6am when he was happy enough to kick about his cot for a while until we got up and fed him.
Just over a week ago he started on solid food. That was fun!
Mom and daughter hurry past on Panna after shopping in Adams Kids.
In the background is the old Dunnes Stores which has been pulled down leaving the front facing of the building and a wide swath of destruction and deconstruction behind it extending to Emmet Place.

Red and white flags flew all over Cork City today and for the past week in anticipation of the All Ireland Football Final between Cork and Kerry.
Unfortunately Kerry won and decisively so too as I heard from my father-in-law Frank who filled me in on all the gory details!
