Posted on July 10, 2011March 31, 2012 by Fergus Cunningham Dublin, Ireland, 2002: A chalk outline marks out a crime scene along-side the river Liffey. Someone’s idea of a joke, or the real deal..? Canon EOS 100/28-105 Share this:ShareFacebookTwitterRedditTumblrLike this:Like Loading... Related

Do you think it was “death by having a rubbish bin dropped on head”? Great Shots!
Yeah, probably death by rubbish bin- by someone in “waste-management” 😉 If it is a prank though, you think they would have drawn the chalk outline somewhere more prominent than up against a wall/bin….
That’s what makes him a good prankster.
That’s exactly how I want to go out.
Lol…. I can think of better ways go….
No perhaps it was ” death by failing to recycle”!
See the ending of “One Night At McCool’s”. It would look different than the chalk drawing. In a funny way of course.
Yeah I like very creative
It looks deserted and creepy.
Trust me- it was 😉 I took 2 shots only- long exposures of approx 30 seconds and then got the hell out of there….
I hope it is a prank, because my first thought was to echo darkhalide and ask if someone had the bin dropped on them…
I wouldn’t be surprised if this truly happened. The boardwalk here in Dublin along the Liffey is notorious for junkies and drug-dealers to hang out. Which is a pity as it adds nicely to the city. The photos are great. Congrats on being freshly pressed!
Cheers for that. Yeah, it can be a pretty dodgy city alright- had plenty of “run-ins” with the local skangers, knackers & junkies….Those boardwalks had only just been put up prior to taking this…
LOL! I’d definitely say joke, considering proximity to the garbage can.
Whatever it was, they got you talking (or writing, that is…). Too funny!
Hey, thanks for this. I can see what my next chalk driveway post is going to be. I write messages in chalk on my driveway to try to connect with my neighbors. Time for a shakeup.
or maybe “crashed with trash?”
My dad can remember when Ireland was sort of a dangerous place, due to increased IRA activity in the ’60s and ’70s. This just looks like somebody playing life-szed Clue though.
The lighting makes this look so dramatic. Love it!
It’s a statement saying we are killing the planet and leading to our own destruction by continuing to dump massive amounts of waste. =)
Nice shots. I was wondering if they were trying to say death by trash can. Weird place to make it as Art. The chalk would probably not remain if it was real. Artists are funny though, you never know what their idea was behind that.
I hope it was a joke! But nice pic nonetheless!
Hopefully I don’t sound to hope-crushing. But most likely a hoax. Crime Scene Investigators/Homicide Detectives and all that wouldn’t use chalk, it would contaminate the evidence of the scene.
But it does make for dramatic TV, and in this case, good pictures. Kodos!
Well spotted, congrats on being pressed
Wow! It’s either really funny or really sick and I can’t make up my mind which! LOL
Looks like an unfinished giant rag-doll… dancing! Gardai are such great artists! Great shots and congrats on being fp! 🙂
hmmm. sparks my imagination. now i’m wondering if it was real, and if so, how’d it happen and who dun it! thanks for sharing.
It wasn’t me ok- even if they do say the suspect always returns to the scene. Great blog- brilliant name!
Could the working conditions be that bad at Alphonsus Grogan and co. that he jumped clear across the road from the second story window and splatted just there? Hmmm? Love a good mystery. I have an alibi. Do you? What fun. Great find.
You may have a angle there, perhaps the victim hurdled over the wall and hit the bin… and yeah I have an alibi, I think 😉
I took it more as the killer outlined the deceased after killing him. Then placing the litter bin there, to say that whoever was killed was littering society with his toxic ways. This is a classic case of one bada** vigilante, cleaning up the streets. Maybe it was even batman, how cool would that have been. Either way whoever did it was looking out for their city, their home.
That’s one helluva theory- I like it 😉
LOL. it looks like bubble buddy from spongebob… yeah that’s how nerdy I am.

I think it’s a joke.
Prank. Looks like something a photographer would do. It’s not the work of a police agency. The so called chalk marks are too wide and it’s missing other markings that would normally be there. Nice try.
Looks like a joke to me. Great photo though. Congrats on Freshly Pressed.
Or probably it was ‘death by eating from bin’. 😛
You got some great shots. I really like the saturated look. Subject matter… quite interesting.
Seems like someone made it for fun. Cool anyway. Congrats for being Freshly Pressed!! 🙂
Moody, gritty and intense. Real or imagined. Excellent either way.
Interesting photos! I agree with darkhalide… “death by rubish bin on head” indeed. 😛
Thanks for sharing!
How strange…. did you solve it? (;
Regardless of whether it was a joke or a real deal, you made great shots. Congratulations for making it to the freshly pressed. 🙂
Real or not, it makes you think. great shot!
loving the arm to leg length ratio of this guy, to be fair it may of just been a very crap chalk outlinest (im sure thats an occupation)
Kinda reminds me of gumby and gingerbread man.
If it was me, I would’ve made an outline of myself next to him!
I enjoyed reading this post… Great report.
Many thanks, please visit again 🙂
