While sitting in Stephen's Green enjoying the sun we spotted this couple who seamed to have brought their whole life with them on holiday. It wasn't until their four children arrived back from doing a bit of shopping that it all made sense!

I spotted this on a walkabout in Smithfield, I think it was on Green street. It was a basement window. the blurred lines are the metal caging over the window. I wonder what made such a clean hole in the glass?

This is a school on Pembroke road (I didn't make note of the name), they are campaigning to save one of their buildings that is apparently going to be knocked to build a car park!!Taken with my Diana+.

This artist was at work as I walked home from a night out in the early hours of yesterday morning. I'd never seen graffiti in progress before, this was on Aungier st.
And this was the finished piece as I was walking home from work yesterday. I wonder how long it will last?Below is another piece of work that the same artist did beside the Bernard Shaw pub on Richmond st. That piece only lasted a few days before it was covered. It's a lot of work for a short period of appreciation I think.

The Bernard Shaw on Richmond st, are hosting the Kieth Haring Pop Show from June 6th to July 7th. And they have painted the outside of the pub accordingly.This is a pub come gallery, and the exhibitions inside change on a regular basis.......buy art while you have a pint! (The above quote is from Mr.Haring himself.)

The Marina in Howth, Co.Dublin. These five were moored for the weekend. Howth is one of my favourite places to go for a drive in Dublin, and it has a wealth of photo opportunities.

A young man slumped against a wall at the back of Rick's Burgers, off Dame st. As I walked past I wasn't sure whether he was asleep or in a stupor of some sort, and as I continued up Georges st I almost wanted to go back and check that he was OK. But I didn't.........people generally don't.
This is a common sight for us Dubliners, and a novelty for non-dubliners! The sign is on the corner of Dame land and Gearges st. Personally I think we should grow old gracefully, and I don't like the thought of "plugs". No Comb-Overs either!! Never, EVER!

This "Bed" was outside Micheal Guineys on Earl Street North this morning. Guineys is a Dublin institution, around since the 1970s; they sell everything from underpants to doilies!! I don't know how I feel about them having a website though, that's not the Guineys I know&love!
Stubbornly went to DunLaoghaire yesterday, even though due to the rain there was no chance of a film!! Stumbled across this shop on the way home. I think they sold everything but the kitchen sink!!(PS: Sorry for the late post)
