Running from the shop

A man in a hoody running out of a shop with a speaker in one hand and a McDonald's cup in the other. Another man is talking to a smiling security guard behind him.
Man in a hoody running past me, looking over his shoulder as his friend comes out of the shop he just left.
Man shouting and coming out of a shop waving his hand holding his phone in the air and a Mc Donald's cup in the other.

Walking along Henry Street in Dublin a few weeks ago, and I saw these two lads coming out of a shop in a hurry. I wouldn’t even have posted these, except the second guy seems to be quite a character!

Distracted in Arrecife

A woman walking along a street looking over her shoulder at something that has caught her attention.

Something caught her eye as she walked along. I don’t know what. I took this photo in 2006, but only noticed it a few days ago.

Arrecife, Lanzarote. 2006.

A tiny red car

A small red car parked by a pavement with a "no parking" cone in front of it. It appears to be parked on a corner.

I spotted a tiny red car parked on a bend in Ardara, Co Donegal on a visit there in 2017. I forgot to take a photo of the logo on the bonnet, so if anyone knows what type of car it is, please let me know!

Lovely town too.

My 2020 Spy

A double decker bus with a couple of masked passengers on it and an advert for the movie, My Spy, which was due to be in cinemas on March 13th.

Far back in time, to the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, a film called My Spy was due to appear in cinemas on March 13th, 2020.

Unfortunately, the country went into lockdown on March 27th. This photo was taken in May that year. Adverts hadn’t been changed in most places. Hoardings still had the same slogan for months, buses were the same. The banners on the Cork Opera House looked the worse for wear. A surreal time.

Sparklers! 2 for €3!

A man selling sparklers on Halloween on Henry Street, Dublin. Two people in the background being polite and listening to him.

A man selling sparklers on Henry Street, Dublin on Halloween this year. He promised that 2 for €3 was better than in the shops where they are 1 for €2, and he was right as we were in a Eurogiant later on!

We didn’t buy any sparklers. He had plenty left over when we passed him again.

On the bike in Girona

A womand and her child on a bike in a pedestrianised area of Girona in Spain

What I saw of the old part of Girona is one long pedestrianised road like you see this photo. It’s a long straight part here but then winds around to the area of the Cathedral. I did see a small van drive down there but they were at least careful. Pedestrians were number 1.

Other parts are not so nice. A three lane street leads out of the city towards Barcelona.

My wife and I came across Korey Power singing on Patrick Street, in front of Brown Thomas. A small but enthusiastic crowd gathered to listen. He has a great voice!

Yes, a gentleman in the background was dancing and enjoying the music too. Did a fine job of it!
