DOWN BY THE ROYAL MAIL II

Those who travel into Belfast from a Northerly direction, or perhaps commute to and from Clarendon Dock can’t help but notice one thing as they travel into the City Centre, a wall mural in the car park close to Royal Mail offices.

It had been there for a while. I have photos going back to 2012 of the wall.

Over the coming years, it fell into a state of neglect, with pieces being painted over and it started looking like a mess.

Over the past few weeks, it has been updated, with new pieces mysteriously appearing. It was enough to intrigue UTV Live.

Naturally, I headed down with my camera and got a few snaps, of Bruce Lee and Kes, as well as some empty spaces, making me curious as to what will appear next.

A few weeks later, I got the answer, as images of Leonardo DiCaprio and David Bowie appeared.

There were still some blank spaces, so I waited to see if there was more activity.

Driving past it, I did catch a glimpse of some new work, so headed back the following Sunday when it was emptier and better daylight.

The new ones added were Christopher Walken, the dandy highwayman i’m too scared to mention and (I think) Harrison Ford – feel free to correct me if i’m wrong on that last one.

How apt that a man who had a hit called Stand and Deliver should appear on a mural near Royal Mail’s offices.

2015 IN PICTURES – APRIL

Damage to The Kop at Windsor Park meant that my photo adventures were delayed in April.

The first shots I got were of Street Art in Belfast City Centre, outside Red Barn Gallery.

On Easter Tuesday, finally some football action, as Linfield beat Glentoran at The Oval. Four days later it was a home game against Ballymena, and a defeat that finally ended Linfield’s title challenge.

With Linfield’s fate now decided, I went to see Carrick Rangers travel to PSNI in their attempt to get promoted the following midweek.

I had a change of heart the following weekend, travelling to Shamrock Park to see Linfield take on Portadown, mainly as it was Peter Thompson’s last game for the club.
