Weekly Photo Challenge: Corner

From Dublin.

This is a very busy intersection in Dublin, right across from Trinity College, where Westmoreland St. curves around the Bank of Ireland (the impressive building on the right) to become College Green (which has a lot of shopping and cafes, etc.)  It was a beautiful view from the sightseeing bus, but my husband was tickled that I chose a photo of a street corner that has no hard angles–no real corner!

I wonder if this area is still under construction; it was a bit of a mess traveling around here when we were there two years ago.  But in spite of that you can still see it is a vibrant, beautiful area of the city.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Bridge

From Dublin.

Two weeks ago, for the Transient challenge, I posted a picture taken from the busy O’Connell Bridge in Dublin; this is a shot of that same bridge from the side.  There are so many awesome bridges across the River Liffey in Dublin I had such a hard time choosing for this post.

From Dublin.

The Jeanie Johnston is a replica of a ship from the 1800s that carried over 2,500 Irish emigrants to the Americas.  She sits near the Customs House on the River Liffey in Dublin, and you can even go on board to take a look around and see how the journey was for these travelers.  This ship symbolizes their transition between their home country and their new homes of Canada and the US, where their descendants are now legion.

From Dublin.

O’Connell Bridge across the River Liffey is in the heart of the city of Dublin.  I can only image how many people drive and walk over it daily; I did both during my stay in the capital.  It was fun to watch all the activity from the top of a tour bus.
