This alley should be familiar to almost everyone in Cork. The entrance to Gorbys nightclub is halfway down there.
Many a Saturday night was spent queuing up to get in!
A long exposure at f/22 creates the beautiful star like pinpoints of light and enough time to capture the light trail from passing cars.
No tripod, so I used street furniture to balance the camera!
Look carefully. The grey building in the background is Pennys on Patrick Street. This was taken on Drawbridge Street near Aroma. Once construction work commences in this view will be obscured forever.
This is the same site as yesterday’s shot of Dunnes Stores and the JCB, from a different angle.
Dunnes Stores on Patrick Street, Cork is no more. This is the back of the front of that building which has featured a number of times on my blog.
The whole block is now gone!
Two teenage girls on Patrick’s Street, Cork. One is lost in thought, while the other chats away.
Do you recognise the Special K poster in the background?
A young girl waits for her food in Abrakebabra, Patrick St. in Cork. Her hard expression is softened by the little hearts on her jumper, but somehow I think she can stand up for herself ..
Good news! My car passed the NCT this morning! 🙂
When shopping for jewellery gifts it’s important to note the following steps to make your life easier.
Don’t worry about price. The piece you like will always be the most expensive.
Pictured is the premises of Hilser Bros Jewllers on the Grand Parade, Cork.
“Shape up your day” with the Special K diet according to Kelloggs.
Your shape. Your way. With Kelloggs Special K of course. That stuff is full of salt isn’t it? Having said that, I do love a bowl of Frosties. Never lasts long in the house. Good thing I haven’t bought a packet in years!
‘Course, I could just be talking about Ketamine too. 🙂
There are I think 3 adult stores in Cork. Two are down by Parnell Place, or at least they were, and the other is pictured above!
One of the adult stores in Cork is down a small, narrow little road called Grafton Street. The alley is so small that it doesn’t even appear on Google Maps. It does show on Yahoo Maps but you’d be forgiven if you never noticed it before.
This was shot from the Grand Parade multi-storey car park which backs onto the road. I was really happy to get the flashing neon sign while it was illuminated!
The Sony repair centre is just across the alley from the store, the only reason I’ve ever gone down there, when I tried to get my Sony 717 repaired.
No, before you ask, I’ve never darkened the doorway of any of those shops!
