Two Gardens, One Canal (Bridge)

The weather was much better this morning than I was expecting so I took a walk in the Memorial Gardens and headed out to the Botanic Gardens with a short detour via the old Midlands and Great Western Railway of Ireland bridge at the end of the Royal Canal. That bridge probably has a much briefer real name that I don’t know, and can’t be bothered to figure out right now, but it’s a cool bridge – massive Victorian engineering with a lift mechanism, massive gear wheels and balance weights all hanging out in the sky. Very cool, and a wonderful contrast to the Samuel Beckett bridge that is nearby.

Pictures today are going to have to be a slide show, there are too many to insert in one by one. I’m quite happy with these, the new Sigma lens is not too shabby at all.
