It was a flying visit in from Stansted for a wedding. Didn't have much free time, spent a couple of hours driving around in Skoda Octavia diesel hire car along the Atlantic coast way starting with a visit to Kinsale, and some lovely beach bays around the coast.

Did see a couple of the best colour RX8s (sunlight silver) driving around Cork.

Definitely want to return at some time.

I was following a BMW K75 motorcycle the other day, and noticed the silencer. The K75 is a triple. They also did a K100, which was a four cylinder and had a square tail pipe.

Another day another rotary shaped object, probably shouldn't have used the flash as other people in the room probably wonder wtf I'm doing photographing random objects, to try and explain would probably make it even wierder.

Impressed with a few of the recent entries here :)

An update I've collected a few in the past year...

On holiday, I had a "make something out of the melon seeds competition" with my son... I was rather predictable:

Hotel had a Rotary shaped Internet Wifi notice:

Recently spotted that the hub-caps on a Smart Car were Rotary shaped:

Went for a meal in the Royal Cafe in Oslo, and sat on this chair:

Oh, if you go to TGI Fridays, the sauce pots you get with meals are rotary shaped too. There’s a reason my girlfriend always takes me there.
