Bay Bridge at Night

The Bay Bridge in San Francisco as it was in 2007. I can’t believe that was seven years ago. Wow.

Ground Level by Bishop Lucey Park

Ground Level by Bishop Lucey Park

The Grand Parade in Cork was quite different 11 years ago. Outside Bishop Lucey Park was an uneven path, the centre of the street was a narrow section between two busy strips of tarmac. And of course the Capitol Cinema was still open. I’m glad the monstrosity pictured here was never built there, even if the site is still dormant. More info on the history of that site available here.

This shot was taken within minutes of this Grand Parade shot I posted last month.

The Peace Park

The Peace Park

Many Cork people think the Peace Park is Bishop Lucey Park on the Grand Parade but it’s actually at the top of South Mall next to the Electric bar. It’s hard to blame them. If you do a search for cork peace park the first link goes to the Wikipedia page for Bishop Lucey park but at least the first paragraph there explains the mistake.

Pictured is the World War I memorial on the site.
