The Calm Before The Storm [Hurricane Ophelia Is Due To Impact On The City Of Dublin]
At the time of posting my photographs local media outlets are reporting that three people have already dies because of the storm.
Many years ago colleague was killed in a major storm as the result of being struck by a piece of debris while passing a building site. The really sad thing was that his manager insisted that he turn up for work or face suspension.
Today I had planned to visit a number of locations but because of really high winds I had to abandon that idea almost immediately I left my apartment. I then decided to visit a local Chinese Restaurant and was surprised to discover that the staff were unaware of the approaching storm.
I must admit that I was surprised by the fact that Bolton Street and Dorset street were more-or-less devoid of traffic.
If you zoom in you may notice some plastic bags floating in the sky towards the top of my photographs.
I had hoped to pay one last visit to the 'Sculpture In Context' exhibition in the Botanic Gardens as it closed on Wednesday.
