De Lorean DMC-12

de lorean

De Lorean, the 80’s Belfast car manufacturer became a household name after their car’s appearance in Back to the Future. The name is instantly recognisable to a whole generation of people. Unfortunately the De Lorean company had already folded before those films were released.

The car above is the De Lorean DMC-12, the only model the company built. It stopped in front of us while we were having a picnic and I heard a woman across the road saying, “That’s the Back to the Future car!”
Lots more to be found on the Wikipedia page on the car.

Shot in Timoleague, Co Cork about a week ago.

No 2 Lisbon

No 2 Lisbon

I’ll probably vote Yes the next time the Lisbon Treaty referendum is run. Who cares about democracy when the country’s in the sh*tter? They’ll only make us do it all over again and slap us around a bit first with the IMF if we say no a second time.

Shot on the hill leading down from Sunday’s well to the North Mall.

The doorway of an abandoned cafe on Oliver Plunkett Street. This one is next to The Old Oak and I’m sure I remember it open once, but it always seems to be closed down.

Shot during the pre-iba09 photowalk a few weeks ago.
