In a world of their own

In a world of their own

This couple were engrossed in conversation walking across the busy junction of Washington Street and The Grand Parade without waiting for the lights. A moment later the man looked towards traffic and put his hand out to stop a car that was heading towards them!

Unbelievable.

Day 5 of ‪#‎FiveDayBlackAndWhiteChallenge‬. Since I was tagged 3 times I’ll continue for a while yet. Enjoying the black and white images?

Charcoal Grill

Charcoal Grill

A lady in sunglasses caught me red handed taking a picture of her at the stall she was at in Patrick’s Street, Cork in July 2013 during some street festival.

Day 3 of the ‪#‎FiveDayBlackAndWhiteChallenge on Facebook for me and I was tagged by Ronan a few minutes ago to do it all over again so I’ll keep going for ten days!

The Love Hate Tattoo Crowd

Love Hate Tattoo

A new “Love Hate Social Club tattoo shop” opened in Cork today with a bang, or at least a party. There was a big crowd outside from 6pm on waiting to get in and join the party.

I hadn’t a notion what was going on, and still don’t except it has something to do with a reality tv show called Miami Ink. Must have a few fans in Cork, or maybe they knew there was free booze? 😉

In the Sultan Restaurant, Cork

Taoufik and brothers in the Sultan Restaurant

The Sultan Restaurant recently reopened after extensive renovations but I’ve had this photo ready to upload for some time so I thought I should post it sooner rather than later.

This is Taoufik (centre) and his brothers in the restaurant pictured after I ate there earlier this year. Their food is amazing. I have a few photos I took with my phone of our meal but they don’t do the food justice, you’ll just have to take my word for it that eating at the Sultan is an experience you’ll want to repeat!

Taoufik also runs a stall in Blackrock village on Sunday mornings and in Douglas on Saturday (I think). Say hi from me if you see him!

Make sure you check their Facebook page too where they post updates and news.

All Dressed up for the Show

A model poses for the camera. She was dressed warmly but I still remember it was a roasting day. How she kept her cool is beyond me! Another shot from the same day is Red Heart.
