Not happy in the rain

Not happy in the rain Moments after my previous shot another group ran for cover from the downpour! Definitely not “singing in the rain” this morning!

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 […]

Please don’t feed the pigeons

Please don’t feed the pigeons The sign obviously hasn’t worked! This was on South Wabash, Chicago around the same time this photo was taken.

Feeding The Duck

Feeding The Duck Urban ducks and wild fowl are luckier than their country brethren. People think they are cute and feed them! This is the same duck I posted before at the Crown Fountains, Chicago.

Smile Please! You’re on Camera!

Smile Please! Pictured by the Crown Fountains, Chicago. The guy in the middle was doing handstands in the water earlier and they were having a great time! He’s also pictured in this photo looking at one of the fountains!

Religion isn’t free

Religion isn’t free A preacher on State Street, just outside Old Navy. I seem to recall he was there way back in 2003 too. I didn’t listen to anything he said but as I passed he pushed a sheet of paper into my hand. I made to take it but he wanted a quarter for […]

What a big smile!

What a big smile! While wandering the streets of Chicago taking in the sights a young boy and his mother passed me. He had the biggest grin on his face when he saw my camera and smiled gleefully when I took this shot! Pictured in front of H&M on the Magnificent Mile near the John […]

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?

Waiting with shopping

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. I haven’t frequented this establishment in a long time but I bet it’s exactly the same inside! Is it called Vibes now? I saw that logo above this sign. Ladies are free in on […]

Queen’s Old Castle

Queen’s Old Castle After yesterday’s shot I decided to take a photo of the Virgin Megastore which now occupies the site of the old Queen’s Old Castle Shopping Center. Off to the left is the entrance to Argos. No misleading titles today! Shot was taken with the camera lying on the ground and I can […]

A Virgin in Cork

A Virgin in Cork Taken outside the Virgin Megastore on the Grand Parade Cork. People use this area to meet all the time so there’s always a good crowd. The building behind me was the location of the Queen’s Old Castle shopping center which was named for Queen Victoria.
