The Big Slide

The Big Slide

In Fitzgerald’s Park a week ago the Street Performance World Championship 2009 brought the crowds to the park. This multi story slide was one of the main attractions. Huge long queue for it though.

Street Performance World Championship 2009

Some photos from last Sunday when the Street Performance World Championship was held in Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork. I actually didn’t really see any performers because of the huge crowds. The place was packed with people. No wonder, when we went down around 6pm it was a glorious evening!

These photos have also been uploaded to pix.ie.

There’ll be a repeat in Dublin next weekend. Hope you get the same great weather!

Highrise Property

Irish highrise property

The Elysian, as seen from Merchant’s Quay carpark on a bright day in May. You can also see numerous other buildings and get a feel for how the 17 storeys of this tall building looms over the rest of the city. Must be a great view from up there!

Spencer Tunick photos went online today

Spencer Tunick’s Irish photos might be online but you wouldn’t know it as the site is down, probably from the rush of people trying to see their neighbours or friends in the nip. Oops. Should have done a deal with Pix.ie!

I did manage to grab one image off there this afternoon and Vic has a few shots which I’ve added to a small gallery. Photos from Cork (he shot in Blarney and in the City) will eventually be seen here. Give it a few days until the site quietens down again.
