Shadows on Powell St

The shadow cast by a young man waiting to cross the street forms the main subject of this unusual image. Sort of messes with your head doesn’t it?

Is it a bird, is it a plane, no! It’s the sky!

I have no idea what they were looking at because there wasn’t anything flying overhead. Better than waiting for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade to start I suppose!

Taken on Paddy’s Day this year on Patrick’s Street, or Panna as it’s locally known.

Sometimes I just miss talking to you

A sticker on the back of a STOP sign reads, “Sometimes I just miss talking to you” and is signed “The 508″. A message of love for someone missing, or mindless graffiti? What makes the image for me is the couple walking by at the bottom of the frame. The sticker could be a speech bubble above their heads.

Shot on Oliver Plunkett Street a few month’s back while walking around Cork City.

Engarde! Construction continues in Cork

Will the construction work in Cork ever end? They just finished digging up the end of Washington Street and Grande Parade when they dig up that busy corner again.

Not quite as bad as the ESB or Bord Gais running a trench through brand new tarmac and leaving a broken road surface behind.

This shot is from the Grand Parade where brickwork is being laid into the ground around the original fountain that was recently restored there. Pics of that to follow!

YIELD! Right of way

A slightly damaged sign that should read, "Yield Right of Way" in Wilton in front of the CUMH.

Looks like someone took a bite out of it. Are there large animals in Wilton?

Thomas in his buggy

Thomas, a young boy in his buggy on Patrick’s Day this year. He’s well wrapped up against the cold.

I have no idea who he is, so hopefully his name is Thomas, and that’s not some famous brand I’m not aware of.
