Customers drinking and eating at the Wellington Cafe, Edinburgh. June 2018.
December 2020, the month we all partied and caused a surge in Covid19 infections in January 2021.
The new Shaky Bridge (Shakey Bridge?), or Daly’s Bridge, is a huge improvement over the old. The lighting makes it stand out, and it still has the shakes like the old one!
I love the cobbles on the ground nearby but the ugly concrete support under the walkway up to it leaves something to be desired. 🙁
Many years ago I published a few photos of Ardmore in Co Waterford. The post received a number of comments about one particular photo of a gentleman on a motorbike. His name was Michael Mansfield and unfortunately he passed away in 2009 but that hasn’t stopped the occasional visitor from leaving a comment since then, the most recent being yesterday.
That comment prompted me to look up the photos I made that day in 2005 to find more photos of Michael Mansfield. Here are the three I found, including the one that appeared in the original post.
Reading the comments I wish I had stopped to talk to Michael. He seems to have been quite the character around Ardmore!
Last month in Burger King, St. Patrick Street, Cork.
January 1st, 2020 in Lanzarote. It seems like a world away. Some knew what was ahead of us in this year but I certainly never suspected what the world would be going through now.
