Don't forget to wash behind your ears!

This is The Sunlight Chambers on the corner of Parliament street and Essex Quay. It was built in 1902 as the headquarters for Lord Lever (of Lever Brothers), the friezes depict the history of hygiene. It is said by some to be one of the first unofficial advertising's the city had.

A thousand words

A wall of history inside The Museum Building in Trinity College. I went on a walk about with my sister, I was talking photos of her for the college website. She will be the Irish Officer (Oifigeach na Gaeilge) for 2010/2011. Bit of a fridge moment!

I need strings to hold me up.

Detail of the Luas bridge at Dundrum, the original bridge was built by William Dargan in the 1800s but was knocked by the council years later. They thought that there would be no need for the railway tracks anymore!! (took this photo with a camera app on my new Samsung Galaxy, it's so shiny!)

Traces of a good night...

On Pleasants street this morning I came across this flower that had had better days! Generally what I have to walk past is worse, so this was a nice surprise!
