i saw these graffiti artists

at the kings of concrete last weekend. all the artists were very talented. i hope we can see more of their work around town.

i saw this apostrophe

in pizzas. what the heck is an apostrophe doing in pizzas? and if they thought it's pizza's then why didn't they think it would be burger's and salad's? i don't get it.

i saw this neon sign

in temple bar once. i like neon lights. especially at night time. i don't think there are enough neon signs around these days. particularly the flashing kind.

I saw this sticker

on a wall near the bernard shaw. i like the mysteriousness of it. it made me ask who are you? do I know you? are you that woman from superquinn? are you happy?

i saw these sun loungers

at the urban beach on sunday. i wonder who the genius was who decided that this would be a good way to spend public money. i think the whole thing is depressing. everyone knows the weather is shocking, there's no need to rub it in. and if the weather actually was good, why would anyone choose to go to a sandpit in ifsc when there are plenty of beaches in dublin?

I saw all these cool things

at the toejam carboot sale at the bernard shaw last weekend. i thought it was the coolest ever carboot sale. i liked the graffiti on the walls too.

i saw lots of cool shoes. and a mickey mouse bag.

and lots of funky people. i like taking pictures of people with their heads missing at the moment. i think it makes the pictures more interesting. it's probably completely wrong and bad photography, but i like it. it leaves more room for imagination.

i saw this swedish guy

for hire at the toejam carboot sale last weekend. i took several pictures of him. for some reason i like this one best, eventhough his face is cut off. i saw lots of interesting stuff at the carboot sale. lots of super-cool people and colourful stuff. definitely the funnest and coolest thing i've seen happen in dublin on a saturday afternoon. most of my pictures didn't turn out that great, unfortunately. i might post one or two more later.

i saw these red doors

in portobello yesterday. i like the way you can see from the picture that it was sunny. it looks like it's really warm. makes me think of spain.

i saw this derelict cinema

in rathmines the other day. i wish i'd taken the photo from another angle to avoid the lamp post. but i quite like it as it is. i googled stella and found some interesting information. it was opened in 1923. the boomtown rats played there in the seventies. so did elvis costello. by the time the cinema closed in 2004, it had become very run down. the seats were hard and dirty. the toilets were unusable. there were cobwebs everywhere. the curtains were black with dirt. the floor was sticky. there is a rumour that someone once was bitten by a rat there. the place was so bad that it became cool. i wish they'd re-open.
