Running from the shop

A man in a hoody running out of a shop with a speaker in one hand and a McDonald's cup in the other. Another man is talking to a smiling security guard behind him.
Man in a hoody running past me, looking over his shoulder as his friend comes out of the shop he just left.
Man shouting and coming out of a shop waving his hand holding his phone in the air and a Mc Donald's cup in the other.

Walking along Henry Street in Dublin a few weeks ago, and I saw these two lads coming out of a shop in a hurry. I wouldn’t even have posted these, except the second guy seems to be quite a character!

Distracted in Arrecife

A woman walking along a street looking over her shoulder at something that has caught her attention.

Something caught her eye as she walked along. I don’t know what. I took this photo in 2006, but only noticed it a few days ago.

A tiny red car

A small red car parked by a pavement with a "no parking" cone in front of it. It appears to be parked on a corner.

I spotted a tiny red car parked on a bend in Ardara, Co Donegal on a visit there in 2017. I forgot to take a photo of the logo on the bonnet, so if anyone knows what type of car it is, please let me know!

Lovely town too.
