The Skeleton of the Blackrock Terrace

The Blackrock end of Páirc Uí Chaoimh lies exposed as the stadium has been stripped bare in redevelopment of the area.

This is a panorama stitched together by Affinity Photo with final black and white development done in Lightroom. AP did a great job of stitching the images together and I put the healing brush to good use getting rid of distracting foreground walls.

More Sultans in Blackrock

The Sultan in Blackrock

The Sultan stall in Blackrock Village has to be my favourite. I love their food, it’s always agreed with me and boy is it tasty. This is a photo I took last March when it was a lot colder but the guys were still cheerful. Today Taoufik was cooking and produced a delicious 3 meat combo for me! I would have taken a photo of that but, eh, I was too busy eating it so you’ll just have to find him yourself and order it or head into the Sultan restaurant on Penrose Wharf!

Empty Seats in Pairc Ui Chaoimh

One evening while walking near Pairc Ui Chaoimh we noticed the gate at the Blackrock end open so wandered in for a quick look around. I hadn’t been in there in years but it was nice to look around and take a few shots. Must have been a GAA meeting or something that evening …

Like the new theme? It’s Oenology!
