Time for the train

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.

False dawn of the city

False dawn of the city

As you may have already guessed, that’s not the dawn. It’s the lights of Cork City (and Blarney) shining and into the sky in a long exposure shot I made last August.

I had meant to mention this sooner but 2 weeks ago I was shocked to hear about the death of Debbie Metrustry (@debbiemet), a wonderful person I had the pleasure of conversing with by tweet and by email over the course of the last year or so. She even won a print on this blog last year, but between this and that I never got around to sending it to her. I hope I can get in touch with her family at some stage and offer it to them instead.

Debbie’s blog on WordPress.com is still there and will be as long as the service is there (which is forever, right?), I’ve seen to that.

If you knew Debbie you might like to read the reaction from other people who knew her.

RIP Debbie.
