Just a couple of shots that I think are nice shots of Dun Laoghaire Pier and Lighthouses from quite unusual perspectives.

This is from inside the east pier battery looking towards the west pier.

This one is the East pier lighthouse from inside the battery. Hope you enjoy. :)

Took a walk earlier today (6pm) and I had a camera with me to take a few shots of the setting sun.

Caught this one on the way back from the pier. What struck me about it was the clouds - (dare I say) a little like a Paul Henry painting.
Shame the ship & I were both moving so fast that I couldn't get it more sharp.
I cropped it to comply with "Rule of Thirds"

Grammer,

He was a great Irish artist and his work sells for a huge amount now.

All the chess boards are incorrectly positioned. They need to be turned 90 degrees so the bottom left square is black.

Um yeah I was puzzled by this. The Black squares are on the left on the board if you turn it once. Am I missing something?

Well, you would then be playing lengthways across the bench, stretching for the pieces. The seats are at the top and bottom of the pic, as it were. The boards are fixed to the benches and can't be moved. Anyway, it's not the end of the world; just thought I'd point it out. There's always cluedo.

Ah right, but you never said anything about glue and that you were playing. You could have sat on the table in a cross-legged yoga position. :D

Is that a peanut or a coffee bean left?
