Cork montage.

Taking it easy in Cork. Not very difficult to do, it's probably the most laid back city in the world.

Dublin Montage

Car parks, whilst not being the nicest things to look at, often have some decent views!

Things that have happened that I am writing about.

A few things that I've seen in the last few days.

Whilst out running this evening I saw a man hitting his dopey alsatian.

The other day a woman at life drawing told me that she felt bored there and could teach everyone how to do it properly. I told her that it's not a competition, and even if it were that she's only competing with herself.

I spoke to a man at the bus stop the other day, he said that it was strangely quiet for a Saturday. I told him it was Sunday. He seemed genuinely shocked.

A car drove past making a weird noise. I turned to see a small car with a way flat tire passing by at about 15mph. The driver was looking right at me and mouthing "FUCK OFF!" in a most extravagant way. I'd have helped him change the tire if he hadn't been so impolite.

Life drawing

First life drawing in 6 months or so... VERY rusty! But a good session. Everything from 1 minute to 15 minute poses. These are 7 minutes.

Premium Garlic?

I hope this is per kilo!

Town drawing

Some of this afternoon's noodling in the park. Nobody spotted me, or if they did they were very polite about it and kindly ignored me. A guy cycled past at one point and a woman on the other side of the park (possibly the other side of the city) shouted out "NO CYCLING IN THE PARK"... Rules are rules I guess. I was hoping someone with a similar sense of humour to me but with a louder voice would shout back "NO SHOUTING IN THE PARK"

Setting up

Apparently there's a little party going on this weekend and some Russian men are setting up a fecking huge ferris wheel down the road from the studio.

A room with a view


No idea what that building on the hill is, but there's a monastery behind the B&B I'm staying at. Never seen one before, I thought they only existed on those information boards you find at old ruins in the countryside.

The Ice Planet



The landlady of my b&b suggested taking a day trip to Howth. It's got nothing to do with star wars, but it was very nice. Lots of foreigners and met some funny Germans today.

Protesters, performers and preachers.

It's difficult to see in this picture but there are at least 5 different groups of people within 25m of each other either protesting something, out of busking with panpipes or preaching something religious. And this is the longest, widest street I've found in the city. Well done!

I found a place to stay.

I found a nice place to stay whilst I'm in Dublin.

In other news I visited an old jail and learnt some history. I also drank Guinness in a tiny pub and chatted to some funny and interesting drunk Irishmen.

Ireland: Beginnings

My case. It's one of those fancy new designs that falls over if you don't prop it up.
