Some chairs marking a parking space in the slushy slushy on Camden street today, it's all turned into a big lake. Not much fluffy snow left.

Dublin Iceness

Some snow covered Dublinbikes on Cornmarket Hight street in the wee hours of this morning, on my way back from a very good night in The Wright Venue enjoying the Smirnoff Nightlife exchange. We got Argentina, and then to top it all we beat them 29 - 9 in the rugby today!

Not worth the visit

A strange little vintage shop at the end of Parnell Square on the corner of Parnell street. Felt a bit like going into somebody else's living room, and the prices were a wee bit expensive. No return visit, no thank you.

Statue of two women sitting and talking to each other on Lower Liffey street. They've taken a rest from their shopping and their bags full of purchases are on the ground beside them. The bags clearly show that the women have been shopping in Arnott's, a large department store on Henry Street. By artist Jakki McKenna it was made in 1988 and has been nicknamed "The Hags with The Bags"!!
I remember a few years ago, somebody stole one of the bags, which would of been quite hard, seen as they are made of bronze! The bag had to be replaced, and now they are fixed to the ground.

The early cyclist catches the first worm!!!

Reflect what you want to see

In Glasthule village, took this shot of the reflection in a shop window. It's a bit of a confusing shot, but I think it works.
