The Penguin and the Man

Graffiti on the Crawford Art Gallery about a year ago.

There’s something weird going on with my feed here. I messed up the Feedburner redirect for a few days but fixed it and now posts from Holy Shmoly are appearing here too! I’ve disabled the redirect entirely now. Maybe that’ll fix it and my next post on HS won’t appear here.

Yellow and Fenced In

A flower or weed? A weed is only a flower in the wrong place, or so I’ve heard. This was taken at Seaside in Florida during the Automattic meetup there in 2010. Beautiful beach there, horrible humidity in September!

This will probably be my last post of the year here so happy new year and I hope 2012 is a great one for you!

Clontarf Bridge

Clontarf Bridge in Cork is a bridge across the River Lee, opened in 1912 and still very much in use. Originally built to link two railways it’s now used for road traffic! This Cokipedia page has lots more info on the bridge and this page mentions that the bridge, “could be lifted to allow the schooners and coasters access to the quay.”

The Old Rocking Chair

Old? Probably not. A quite new rocking chair outside a shop in Killrush, Co Clare back in April 2009. Photographed while we were on holiday and we were lucky to have a beautiful day. Unfortunately not every day was good but we made the best of it!

One Eye Oscar!

Shih Tzu dogs need a lot of grooming and Oscar is no exception. This is him in the snow on Christmas Day last year. Good thing he had all that fur as it was freezing!
