Dublin 7/8 Chic

I don't want to minimise Millie Elder's problems, but what is she wearing? I think she's been inspired by some of the locals in our area. This would be acceptable day or evening wear in Dublin 7 and 8.

Paddy's Day 08




Enburdened with my equipment, I set to the streets to capture St Patrick's Day 08 for perpetuity and here are some of the results. I'm really happy because there are a few *great* photos in the bunch - it means my setup works!

For the record it was my T90 + 85mm 1.2L + Speedlite 300TL flash for fill + Fuji Reala 100.

Glasgow





So a couple of weekends ago we (+Molly) randomly (cheap flights) travelled to Glasgow. After a rough takeoff, flight, and landing, Glasgow greeted us with an impromptu hail storm as we waited for the train... It was the "worst storm in a 100 years" weekend.

While it was freezing, the weather did hold enough for us to see the city & it was much better than I expected. A grand museum, a grand university, a grand park, lots of great Indian food + Trainspotting was filmed here. Could you want more than that?

Cork,Glascow and beyond...

A few snaps from Cork below - we travelled there a few weekends ago now. It's a nice city. It seems much more livable than Dublin with a nice foody studenty vibe and great coffee.

Last weekend travelled to Glasgow. I haven't upload the photos yet as not all are developed, but check this out - action packed or what?

It was a pretty cool city but the weather was awful. I caught a cold (or the cold I already had set in). Both flights were quite hairy as it was very windy. We disembarked our plane at Dublin and had to run the 100 metres to the terminal in more or less a full storm. Oh for a walkway thing :-(.

Anyhow, we've booked an apartment in the Marias (yes Carol, we did copy you a little bit) over Easter which I'm very excited about. Paris is just so great. It will be great to go back for the 2nd time - you kind of know your way around and can focus on exploring. Plus with an apartment, we have a kitchen, so we can buy food at markets, cook it, and eat it.

I have no other news of substance except to say that as we speak my parents are moving out of the parental homestead for greener pastures so I'll never be able to see that hold I drilled in the laundry for my home-built room burglar alarm ever again. That's life I guess.

Sideswipe / Life in NZ

From http://www.nzherald.co.nz/column/story.cfm?c_id=702&objectid=10496131

Maybe Westpac Rescue has taken on a new triage strategy?" says Rob Cooke.
"I suggest anyone visiting New World, Franklin Rd, to press the big yellow
button after they have put their coins into the children's Westpac Rescue
helicopter ride by the exit. My 2-year-old was delighted his $2 bought him the
ability to strafe innocent store shoppers with the unmistakable sound of an M60
machine gun. I suppose they must edit that bit out of Piha Surf Rescue."
