Thursday Doors: 22 December 2016

Kinsale, Co Cork

Child size door

We came across this door one evening while walking home from a friend’s house in Kinsale, Co Cork.   It seems it is still a functioning door, but I wonder why it is so small?   Maybe it was built for shorter people…or even the Little People?

Head on over to Norm’s Thursday doors for some more interesting posts.

Nando's restaurants

Nandos – good at anytime!

If you like spicy portuguese style chicken, then you must visit Nandos – this branch is in Southwark, London, but the first Nandos was established in 1987 in Johannesburg. there are branches all around the world now.    Even if it’s morning time, it’s never too early for Nando’s!

Tower Bridge and the River Thames taken from the Sky Garden, Fenchurch Street

My photos were taken recently in London, strolling along besides the River Thames, the longest river in England, which has many bridges spanning it, and lots of boats of all shapes and types, travelling on it daily.   Even at night, this body of H20 is never still or deserted, always moving and always carrying people and things along with it.

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge : Week 34

I came across this bar sign in Castletownbere in West Cork a few days ago, and thought it would be ideal for Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge, what do you think?

Cee’s Which Way Challenge : August 24, 2016

This challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, etc. we move from one place to another on.

I found a few interesting bridges on our recent trip to Dublin.  The day before my son’s wedding, as everyone was gathering for the big event, we went on The Viking Splash Tour around the city,   This is a fun tour in a World War 2 amphibious vehicle, that goes around the old part of Dublin, on road and water, everyone dresses up in Viking Hats, and even though there was a little bit of rain, we all had a great time!

Here come the Vikings

We drove along by the side of the River Liffey, past the main bridge, O’Connell Bridge, and one of the pedestrian bridges, the Ha’penny (Halfpenny) Bridge

We also drove along by the canal, and heard about the history of the time when barges were the main form of transport to bring goods up the river from the docks.    Anyone for a stroll along the canal?

Prague Hotel

Looking down from above

We stayed on the 6th floor of a hotel in Prague, and this view of the chandeliers going all the way down to the ground floor, was a very intriguing design.  Lucian Freud said ‘The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and ironically, the more real’
