A town with Pub's all over now that is my kind of town. That last one is just frightening.

So much to like about these photographs. I really like the bicycle a lot! And the colors of the storefronts are amazing, and the people, you captured a lot about these places very well.

Nice! Caught the lighting just about perfect - that ain't easy where there isn't too much! Very nice!

Top two look like Grafton Street! Neat place!

Collectively, thanks to everyone for all the friendly replies.

Just a few comments.
In the first shot I positioned myself so I could frame the shot of the pole-standing buskers with the pencil on the right as I thought it would create a nice visual effect.

Then I discovered this resulted in a bit of an empty space between it, so I waited and hoped someone would come along to fill the foreground before any of the two musos loose balance and end it all.

Wouldn't you know, usually there is always someone walking into your frame, but not this time. Eventually though this woman came along and obliged with my wishes beautifully. And the musos didn't come off.

daacon, I am seriously worried about you if I assume correctly you like them more from the inside then out. Have another look at the guy with the fag hanging from his mouth, he also likes pubs (from the inside) where he consumes copious amounts of Guinness, You don't want to finish up like him - do you ?

The fish on display (shot at a street market) is a "Monkfish" and when I ask the fishmonger about it he said it is a highly sought-after catch. The look is decidedly ghastly and you wouldn't think of buying anything like this for dinner. But I was told the meat is similar in taste and texture of that of a Crayfish and now equally expensive. So there you are, never judge a book by its cover or in this case a fish by its face.

Tess, you always have something nice to say and I thank you. If you approve of these images, then it is good enough for me.
