I published a few more photos here a couple of years ago. You’ll recognise the skateboarder in one or two of the images!

Storage Tanks on the Docklands

Storage Tanks on the Quays

This won’t win any awards for beauty but it’s part of the old industry of the city along the docklands. While this old building looms overhead lots of people were enjoying a warm June day at the Marina Market. Open air seating was all full with people enjoying their lunches.

I have no doubt these buildings will be gone in a few years, hopefully to be replaced by a thriving community of businesses and homes.

To Albert Rd or Montenotte View?

To Albert Rd or Montenotte View?

Albert Road on the right, Montenotte View on the left. Take one road and go.

I used to take the bus into town for many years going to school. That went to the left. Traffic used to go both ways on Albert Road a long time ago. The day it changed to one way my mother drove up the wrong way after collecting us from school. She didn’t go too far before other motorists let her know the error of her ways!

The Bright Lights of Porto

The Bright Lights of Porto

Exactly 2 years ago in 2019 I was in Porto, Portugal with my team on a company meetup. It’s a beautiful city and I would love to get back there some day! That’s the Torre dos Clérigos in the background.

Black Still Life

Black Still Life

A statue in the middle of Whistler, Canada. I love the contrast between the black statue of the fruit and cup and the bright red of the bush in the background.

FUCK CANCER

FUCK CANCER

I saw “FUCK CANCER” spray painted all over Porto in 2019. I think we can all agree that cancer can go f*** itself but I wonder what motivated these?
