The Flower Seller

A man selling flowers on Graft Street watches as a woman looks for what she wants to buy

On Grafton Street, Dublin, you’ll find people selling flowers to passing pedestrians. There are a few of them, so business must be pretty good. Lots of foot traffic in the area, though. Lovely displays of colour too.

Irish Adult Store

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!
