Bay Bridge at Night


The Bay Bridge in San Francisco as it was in 2007. I can’t believe that was seven years ago. Wow.

Ground Level by Bishop Lucey Park

Ground Level by Bishop Lucey Park

The Grand Parade in Cork was quite different 11 years ago. Outside Bishop Lucey Park was an uneven path, the centre of the street was a narrow section between two busy strips of tarmac. And of course the Capitol Cinema was still open. I’m glad the monstrosity pictured here was never built there, even if the site is still dormant. More info on the history of that site available here.

This shot was taken within minutes of this Grand Parade shot I posted last month.
