Mini skips flying high

A skip or large rubbish bin is manoeuvred into place on a building site off Paul Street, Cork.

Those tall cranes are practically a part of city life now …

Caught by surprise

An old man stops at the end of Paul Street, Cork. I think he spotted me taking his photo.

Paul Street by night

In front of Tesco on Paul Street, Cork by night. This is a long exposure show I made by putting my camera on the ground and leaning the lens on my wallet.

Judging by the lighting it was probably a small aperture too. Love that effect!

Cute little dog

A King Charles Spaniel with his owner in Paul Street, Cork a few months ago. I don’t like seeing dogs in the city because it’s so stressful for them but it was really quiet. Little fella looks worried though doesn’t he?

What’s in the bag?

A young lady checked her bag just outside Paul Street Shopping Centre in Cork. Wide angle lens makes for weird contortions but I like it!

Tired of shopping

Sometimes you just want to move to the side and let life pass you by. Don’t forget to jump on again!

The Collins Bookshop

If you walk past this area now, the Amacas Restaurant is in this building on Paul Street, Cork. At the time the building was empty, having been vacated by the Gingerbread House a few weeks previously.
This sign is now gone too, but Collins Bookshop on Carey’s Lane is still there, I think. There’s a fancy glass partition in front of the building now where smokers can sup their coffee and eat their food. A far cry from the previous occupant’s dining arrangements.

I’m a sucker for old and weather beaten signs, street furniture and general rusted implements so I had to get a shot of this while walking past.

Innovative Streets

It’s good to look down sometimes. I think this was used to hold a decorative safety pole but I don’t remember ever seeing it used. There are poles on the other side of this narrow street however.

The street of course is Paul Street behind Waterstones.

I was going to blog that yesterday was World Book Day but time ran out for me and the power cut didn’t help my motivation much. Nevertheless, blogged it. Check out some of my photos from last year’s World Book Day celebration!

Unhappy Child

A small girl walks mournfully into the shopping center on Paul Street clutching her “BT Kids” balloon, probably handed to her by this lady.
