Continuing on from the images reflected on the posts of Thursday and Friday, this series of shots was taken looking across Washington Street in Cork City centre. The light was yet to hit the buildings, but the red bricks, contrasting cream and the faded white lettering of O’Leary’s, still made an interesting enough shot for me to turn the camera’s attention to the facade.
The ground floor of this red brick building is now occupied by a cafe and shops while the upper floors appear to be converted into apartments. Nonetheless, the advertising for O’Leary’s continues on. This really appeals to me and echoes a world of another era.
Looking at the vertical image, I also like the way the apartment under the ‘Stationary’ window is all closed and curtained off, reflecting the very word itself, while the window above it, which nestles below the word ‘Import’, is open and ready to receive.
Talking of the ‘O’Leary’s’ (or Leary) Clan, I just picked up a follow from a blogger tracing back history on the clan. If this is something that interests you why not say hello to TJ Leary.
Have a good Sunday.
