While walking along the North Quays of the River Liffey on a bright sunny summer morning, I was stopped in my tracks by the colours in the peeling paint of the panels on the disused shop front.
I love old layers of peeling paint. The colours and texture are a work of art in themselves.
It was only when I had my fill of texture that I looked up for a shop name.
It was clearer on the side of the building, round the corner on Arran Street East.
Well, that’s “different.”
I love it! By the looks of it, the paint didn’t either (resist). 😉
I love the look of your city, country and all the quaint spots that you unearth.
These photos were taken in Dublin, the capital city of the Irish Republic.
I don’t know about peeling paint, but that river looks enchanting. What a beautiful area.
Gigi, the River Liffey runs right through the centre of Dublin City.
lol, my memory of the Liffey wasn’t that it was enchanting!
😆 In summer it was High! Hand me a clothes peg, please!
What a great name, and love the chippy paint. Could it be because there is character in ol things?
Brighid, Like…..you and me? *Runs to hide under the bed!*
Yep! I for one don’t run and hide, spent my youth developing all this character. I own mine and I have a feeling you own yours!
I certainly do, am proud of it!
I love how old buildings have a way of telling their own story. Nice pictures!
Pity I didn’t have a chance to see inside.
Fun post ~ great name for a store.
Nancy, it tickled my funny bone!
Defintely worth remarking!
Ireland is still on my wish list …
If you can manage it when the sun is shining, Ireland is hard to beat.
Why would anyone want to put fish in a kettle anyway?
Nick, a fish kettle is used for poaching fish eg: a full salmon.
Boiled fish is a Great Lakes culinary tradition in areas of Wisconsin (USA) and along the coastal Upper Great Lakes, with large Scandinavian populations.
Now that is a new one on me, Mike. When I saw the picture in the link above, my first thought was raw chicken! I still have plenty to learn!
That’s not a kettle, it’s just an elongated saucepan!
True, and it is used to steam fish, so I too wonder who gave it that name.
I enjoyed these photos. They took me right back.
Maria, I hope they brought back good memories.
