Beauty Treatment at The Body Shop

Beaty Treatment at The Body Shop

I’m still recovering after the photowalk yesterday! I took a quick look through my photos this evening and decided I’m not over the moon about any of them. A couple are ok, but there’s that little critical part of my mind saying, “crap, crap, crap, blah, ‘s ok, focus is off, boring, what were you thinking?” as I look through them.

Anyway, here’s a shot from just before I met everyone else so I guess it can’t be counted really. Shame really as I have another shot of a gentleman getting a bus that I quite like in b/w.

Glad I had the wide angle lens on, caught this beauty treatment in front of The Body Shop on Patrick’s Street. Things are really desperate when shops are hawking their wares on the street trying to entice customers to buy. I saw a guy from Waterstones handing 3-for-2 leaflets outside Easons too. That’s smart. Target your competitor’s customers!

Oh check out Jamie’s post about the day. He has some great shots. Thanks again to everyone who came!

O’Briens Sandwich Bar

O'Briens Sandwich Bar

“O’Briens’ HQ placed in examinership” according to this news report yesterday. This is their fairly recently opened (and more recently closed) “sandwich bar” on Oliver Plunkett Street here in Cork.

Loved their Triple Decker, even if it was a little pricey. Hope the company survives.
