The London Eye

While on my way to Iceland a few months ago I had about 10 hours to kill while in London. Thankfully John Godley collected me at the airport and gave me a quick tour of the city centre!

I got loads of photos of the London Eye, here’s one of them.

The Human League

The Human League played to a packed crowd in Cork last night. Murphy’s sponsored the event as part of their Little Big Nights Out promotion so there was plenty of the black stuff drunk. I still have my voucher if anyone wants it?

The band played most of their hits, mixing in songs I’ve never heard as I’ve never bought any of their albums. Still, it was surreal hearing them sing Don’t you want me and other songs that synonymous with 80’s music!

Yes girls, there’ll be a picture of Phil Oakley in a few days time …

Four Points Cadiz

Cadiz is a city and port in the Iberian Peninsula in Spain. The centre of the city is filled with old alleys and narrow streets. Here’s I shot straight upwards at the junction of 4 such alleys, I think it was here near the local cathedral.

Many years ago I took a similar photo of buildings in San Francisco.
