Painting: Liffey Bridges

Liffey Bridges

Buy this painting on a card or print - the original is sold.
I like a glut of bridges, and because the Liffey bends its way through Dublin’s city centre there are several points to enjoy such views. This particular one is from the south quays looking east to the [...]

Painting: Frank Sherwin Bridge, Dublin

Frank Sherwin Bridge
16″ x 12″
canvas, unframed
Although Frank Sherwin Bridge does hide many views of Sean Heuston Bridge, it does at least afford newer close-up views of its older cousin. Most times when I’m crossing one I then immediately cross the other. This is only problematic if I actually want to get to the other side [...]

Painting: Loopline Bridge, Dublin

Loopline Bridge

S&H: €11 Worldwide

Daylight cycling being that much more pleasant and easier, it’s a reward I try to give myself for the previous night’s sleep deprivation. The painting itself usually dictates, but when I get it right I [...]

Under The West-Link

A few photos for you of the stretch of the M50 that is the West-Link bridge over the Liffey Valley in Dublin. I took these underneath the motorway in a spot where, long before even the first carriageway was built, I used to play as a kid.
These were taken using the phone as I haven’t [...]

Photo: Beckett Bridge by Moonlight

Here’s a night time photo of Dublin’s newest bridge over the Liffey, the Samuel Beckett Bridge taken during a stroll in the docklands.

This is my first photo I’m not letting you enlarge - simply because being a handheld night-time shot it just isn’t good enough quality.
