Bank of Scotland(Ireland) are changing their unwieldy name to the much shorter “Halifax”. The bank is a major player in the UK market, but the name change could yet backfire because Halifax isn’t very well known in Ireland. I presume a slick marketing campaign will take care of that.
The building across the river is the Cork branch of the bank on the Grand Parade. I love how the sun picked out the bright white of it’s walls and the bike in the foreground was in shadow beneath a tree.

amazing contrast! A really interesting capture of the building
I would’ve never guessed that lovely building was a bank!
Thanks! You should see it from the front, it looks like a castle. It’s quite an old building. I thought I had some photos of the building from way back but a quick look around couldn’t find them. I have another shot ready to post in a few days from just up the river!
Here’s the front of the building 🙂

Really enjoy this photo. There is great contrast even between what looks to be a tricked out bicycle and the building.
Halifax, Nova Scotia is a city here in Canada and one of my favorite places to visit.

Love how the light spotlights the building, kind of ironic.

Either way it looks absolutely great, so bright in the sunlight, against the bicycle silhouette and the dark blue sky.
