The story behind the image

The Ha’penny Bridge in Dublin, Ireland, is beautiful. But when you use the bridge to cross the River Liffey you will also want to stop and take a beautiful shot.

My photo shows the view towards east. Comparing it with previous as well as more recent photos you’ll realize that the city is in constant flux. Change is omnipresent here, and I find this dynamic quite attractive. Just one example: In 1999, when we first visited Dublin, the northern side of the river was just a simple wall. In 2003 – the image above – you can see that the boardwalk next to the street has been extended to ‘hang’ over the river. The new space has been used to provide a place of rest in the busy capital. Now long benches invite for a pause at any time of the day. And if you look at more recent images, you’ll find a boat pier that has been added on that side of the river.
