On my Phone

On My Phone

Outside Papeis Pintados, a shop in Porto near the hotel I was staying in with my team from work. I suspect this was taken after a hearty meal in La Ricotto right across the road. November 2019.

The Ferris Wheel on the Grand Parade is gone now but just recently a crow was checking it out to see if it was fun or not.

The rain in Portugal falls mainly on the umbrellas. Hopefully anyway.

The Spinning Ferris Wheel

The Spinning Ferris Wheel

The Ferris wheel on the Grand Parade spinning away delighting the crowds earlier this month.

Looking forward to 2022. It has to be better than 2021, and 2020.

Love on the Lee

Love on the Lee

St Patrick’s Bridge in the background, pictured from Mary Elmes Bridge. A love lock on the fence but thankfully there aren’t many on it. Love locks are a serious problem for structures as they add unplanned weight.

Happy holidays! Hope you had a nice day today!

December Fireworks

December Fireworks

Fireworks illuminate the park beside Páirc Uí Chaoimh in Blackrock tonight. The fireworks were part of the “Magic Nights By The Lee – A Winter Solstice” series of events but unfortunately due to Covid 19 they didn’t tell anyone where the fireworks would be launched from as reported by The Echo earlier today,

For public health reasons, viewing sites will not be provided at launch locations. However, the wider public is invited to enjoy the display from a safe, socially distanced vantage point and can tune in to Red FM for the accompanying audio.

Local residents were informed and a small crowd gathered to watch. It was a superb show, with a huge variety of colours and explosions. Made for a hectic ten minutes while I pressed the shutter button again and again hoping for good shots!

Achill Island, Co Mayo in July 2019. We joined the residents of Dooagh for a walk into the surrounding countryside. Halfway through there was refreshments and music and on a lovely July day it was glorious.
