A clock suspended from the roof of Heuston Train Station, Dublin.
The odd thing about travel is that I’ve probably been in the US more times than I’ve been in Dublin, and certainly have been in London.

Local community members were interviewed almost a year later by Flux to find out how journalists and photographers treated them. Some of the stories are shocking, others have been discounted as pure fantasy, and the newspapers are defended by a member of staff from the Irish Daily Mail.
I’m writing this from memory because the sound on my desktop box is broken and the sound on my Macbook is just too low for comfort. I used mplayer to record the stream using the following command,
mplayer rtsp://streaming2.rte.ie/2007/0129/29012007rte-flux.rm -novideo -ao pcm. That dumps the realaudio stream to a file called audiodump.wav. I wish mencoder worked on audio streams…
It’s well worth a listen though.
James Joyce, forever forced to look upon the Spire on O’Connell Street Dublin. Here’s a humorous look at the names of the statues and monuments in Dublin. I had heard that the Spire was nicknamed the “Stiletto in the Ghetto”, but I hadn’t heard it called, “North Pole”!
Overhead wires destroy urban photography and this is no exception. I could have tried to clone it out but it’s notoriously difficult to clone out objects against a varying sky. Ah well.
I like this: self-portrait with 6×9 ultrawide pinhole camera
O’Connell Street in Dublin is reflected in the polished surface of the Spire. A young teenager leans on the edifice in the shade away from the glaring sun. This was inspired by a shot I saw one another photoblog, can’t remember which one now. Does anyone know the image I’m talking about?
Here’s another picture of the Spire showing it’s full 120m height!
If you’re curious, the Spire can just about be seen from space as Google Maps shows!
A mural on a wall in Dublin a few weeks ago.
We passed this while walking back to our hotel. I get the feeling there’s a story behind this picture. Does anyone know it?
I noticed this cross in the sky while walking around Dublin a few weeks ago. When I saw a church I had to make this shot and I’m quite happy with the way it came out!
We bought smoothies in Honest, a small shop in Dublin. They were having problems with their machines and gave us one of the smoothies free but they didn’t taste all that great unfortunately.
