Water drops

macro of water droplets on a leaf

I am just a waterdrop
Fatefully I cannot stop my fall down to earth
Like a tear from heaven sent
I don't know where my way will end
I just fly in the unkown deep in the unkown deep”

Back to the old house. I would rather go (Ballymaloe)

Ballymaloe Restaurant and Country House, home to Darinna and Rachel Allen. It’s a location made for relaxation- the bedrooms don’t have any televisions, nothing to do but just unwind, have a stroll and eat.
Some friends, Ronan and Cliona got married here last year, a memorable wedding.

German riot police at the anti G20 demonstrations in Berlin. I asked them if I could take their picture just to be on the safe side

Ok computer?

In b. Abstract/Arty by admin / January 25, 2010 / 0 Comments

My laptop ‘working away’ like a busy bee. It reminds me of when I was young(er)- my brother had a Commodore 64 computer. When a game was loading we’d leave the room as a large vibration could interupt the loading. The sound of games loading was similar to the early-days-internet-dialup noise and could have influenced Aphex Twin.

Maximo Park Graffiti

Maximo park graffiti bench in Berlin, Germany

Maximo Park Graffiti

 

“I’ll do graffiti if you sing to me in French, What are you doing here if romance isn’t dead”
Mind your mouth as you walk with me,Take care ooh as you cross the street”

I saw this park bench when walking through a park in Berlin and Maximo Park just popped into my head. I always wondered what’s correct grammatically; does one ‘do’ graffiti?

Post title is the name of a British Rock Band Maximo Park and a song title of theirs ‘Graffiti’.

Oh Manchester, so much to answer for (Old Trafford, Manchester United)

In h. Sport,k.Buildings & Architecture by admin / December 17, 2009 / 0 Comments

I took this (with a standard compact) on a tour of Old Trafford (Theatre of Dreams), home stadium to football team Manchester United. I found it a very interesting tour. But then again I enjoy football stadium tours in general because it allows me to ask multiple questions and you get to learn some interesting trivia and facts ( the rainwater that falls on the roofs is ‘recycled’ and used for the toilets).

The Sunshine Undergreound/Yellow River (German U-bahn)

Taken on Berlin’s U Bahn. I was hoping that nobody would walk around the corner or from behind as it would ruin the picture…and I could be mugged.
These remind me of the film/movie Jacob’s Ladder.

This sculpture in Eyre Square, Galway is of a Galway Hooker boat. It’s a nice sculpture but from this angle unflattering.
