Wake UP America

Wake UP America

A protestor on the streets of San Francisco in July 2007. I wonder what that man thought of the Obama and Trump years?

Edit: Alex posted a photo of the same man back in 2007 on his blog. That was a fun photowalk.

The Barren Gap of Dunloe

The Barren Gap of Dunloe

The Gap of Dunloe in Co Kerry in February 2007. I was up there recently and it couldn’t have been more different. A storm blew down the valley making life miserable for anyone walking the roads or trying to take photos of this scenic area.

I’m a SHOW boy

I'm a SHOW boy

April 2006 and the Grand Parade was the scene of some merriment. Food and produce stalls were erected and entertainers entertained.

Note that they’re standing on the road? Now they’d be on the large pavement on the library side of the road!

Long Gone in Cork

Long Gone in Cork

Way back in 2005 before the Elysian was built. Look at all the buildings that are gone now:

  1. The warehouses in the foreground are gone.
  2. The Sextant was demolished last year.
  3. Cork Bonded Warehouses are gone a long time.
  4. In the far background many new buildings have gone up.

This view from the City Hall car park is no longer possible of course because the Elysian and new development along Alert Quay gets in the way. The new development is welcome but building more and more offices and hotels is a mistake. We need more residential development.

Rukos Skateboard Air Time

Catching the air on a Rukos skateboard in Emmett Place, Cork. September 2005.

I published a few more photos here a couple of years ago. You’ll recognise the skateboarder in one or two of the images!

The Ruins of Lebowskis

The Ruins of Lebowskis

Lebowskis on Marlboro Street in 2005. The Spyglass Tavern is now in this building I think if Google Maps is up to date. I wasn’t ever in Lebowskis and haven’t visited the Spyglass Tavern either.

Edit: The Atlas Bar is in that building now, not the Spyglass Tavern.

Broken Arizona Wheels

Broken Arizona Wheels

The 2008 Automattic Grand Meetup took place in a small ranch in the Arizona desert. It was mid January so it was nice and cool, maybe even cold at night!

Queuing for Gorbys

Queuing for Gorbys

A bunch of lads queuing for Gorbys on Oliver Plunkett Street, Cork in 2007. Nightclubs are due to open soon again.

2,399 new cases of Covid-19 today. Even with vaccination I think we can expect a huge surge in about two weeks. I’ll be glad if I’m wrong.

CRAFT FAIR NOW ON

CRAFT FAIR NOW ON

The Unitarian Church on Princes Street used to have a craft fair and market very often. Maybe every week? This gentleman was helping draw attention to it in April 2006.
