Flying home

    Newer Older

    I just got back from a very nice three days in Dublin (I gave a computer science talk there). There will be several pictures from the trip, starting with this fellow cycling across O'Connell Bridge (which has the odd distinction of actually being wider than it is long).

    It got dark really early this time of year, so I took a lot of "night" shots Tuesday that really weren't all that late (this was at 6:30pm).

      I've always wanted to try this style! Really, really cool. Lucky, I want to visit Dublin!

      Thanks all!

      SS&DN: Actually, it was pretty warm (at least for someone from Minnesota). It was really windy, but it was dry and quite temperate.

      Ar'alani: It was sort of an accident that it occurred to me (several hours and nothing to do but take pictures...), so I ended up taking lots like this, most of which were predictable crap. Got really lucky that this guy was isolated without any cars - the traffic across the bridge was actually really heavy.

      This was my second time in Ireland, but my first time in Dublin (I gave a talk down in Limerick 7 years ago). I really enjoyed it, but not always in the ways that I expected.

      Jim: I promise you that I've thrown away many that weren't :-).

      My work is math-y computer science to boot, so definitely arcane stuff.
