May began for me with the Irish Cup Final. Unfortunately, Linfield weren’t involved, going as a neutral, in the Glenavon end, having picked up a ticket at Mourneview Park the week before.

That weekend, I was out getting some Street Art pictures, most notably, of Felix The Cat and a Phoenix.

With the football season over, it was cycling that filled the following weekend, as the Giro D’Italia rolled in to Belfast. I was there on Thursday (Team presentations), Friday (Time Trials) and Saturday (First Stage), getting a not bad position at the finish line.

I spent most of the Friday at Titanic Slipways to see the teams off. In retrospect, I probably would have been better out on the streets seeing the teams in motion. Win some, lose some. I guess.

That was it for May. I didn’t really do much else.

Out on the bike today on a wee tour of Belfast, and got some Street Art photos.

Spotted some pieces in East Belfast last week, but didn’t have a camera, so went back to get some photos. One of the ones in East Belfast had a tribute to recently deceased DJ Frankie Knuckles.

From there, I headed to North Street to get some pieces I missed last week, including a Phoenix painted onto where North Street Arcade was.

Last week, in the alleyway behind The Globe, I spotted a work in progress being painted. So, I headed back to get a photo today. It’s a piece of Felix The Cat carrying a bomb.
