Photo: Angkor Wat

Dipping into my archives here, which means I had to scan this. Most of my time in Cambodia I used a bicycle for transport, but when I went up river to Angkor I spent 3 days going around on a moped. Less public places than Angkor Wat itself were my favourite spots, but there was [...]

Photo: One Tree

A photo of a small tree, somewhere in Ireland. It’s not possible to talk about single trees without sounding corny, so that’s all I have for you.

Blue Paint, Blue Sky

Long time readers will know that watching paint dry is something I thoroughly enjoy. Of course it’s easier if the paint takes in rain water and reflects a sky of blue.

Photo: Liberty Hall, Dublin

Liberty Hall doesn’t bother me quite as much as some of Dublin’s other monstrosities of its era - specifically Hawkins House and O’Connell Bridge House - and it does at least nod towards Bus├íras, but I’m certainly ready for a new incarnation.
I took this photo while standing on Tara Street (minding my own business).

Photo: Dublin Changing Rooms

Not wishing to glamourize grafitti, arson, or sport, but here’s a picture I took recently of changing rooms by a football (soccer) pitch in Dublin West.

It’s My Ball

The first new video of Dog-Dog in some time - and you can tell, because I held the camera the wrong way.
Despite what you may hear, no children were distressed during the making of this video.

More Dog-Dog:
   • Video: The Upside Down Dance
   • The Barrytown Accents Discussion
   • Birthday at an Irish Beach
   • A Dublin Day-Trip
   • Video: [...]

Photo: Blue and White

Here’s a photo I think would make a good poster, albeit just with a target customer base of 1. No cropping was done, and I spent ages trying to decide if I wanted skin in there. It’s not easy sneaking up behind people. (enlarge)
That thin strip of blue below the freaky Irish sky is the [...]
