This week I’m not really on an even keel. You may have noticed I’ve been a tad out of kilter with the last few posts… asking strange questions and including off-beat suppositions, so… Ailsa has got me just where I want to be. Tilted!! Mentally tilted? Some say I’m more than tilted… I’m totally sloped off the edge of the planet!
The thing is… I’m having fun with all my quirky suppositions and suggestions. The problem though, are you having fun reading all my waffle? So… as Ailsa has given me free licence, now is the ideal time to include a few tilted images. With all this temptation of tilting-out I set off into town last night. That in itself was quite a strange sensation. Remember, only 2 months ago I was still walking to Connolly Station on a Friday evening to go home and now I was walking away from Connolly to join the new workmates for an evening out.
My route crossed O’Connell Street… Dublin’s ‘main’ road. What better of an opportunity than to show you something skew. Yep, I’m afraid Ailsa will be surprised to see what the heatwave has caused. Things are drooping, wilting and just downright suffering in all this extended sunshine! Long may it last! The Spire as you’ve never seen it before… wilted in the heat!
The heat obviously got too me as well… there I was, standing in front of Lotto HQ, looking up at one of the ugliest buildings in Ireland to see something attractive. At least against the blue sky the tilting roof detail warrants a photo.
The stroll through the city streets necessitated turning the lens often… away from some of the abominable sights on offer. The sunshine seems to help switch usually rational folk’s brains right off. There was so much blotchy white/ pink/ red/ scarlet flesh about one almost needed blinkers not to get eye damage. Note I say almost… there was the odd sight to sooth the aching eyes… the odd tilt that would reaffirm my faith in sanity of human kind!
