Photographying the photographer

Image
The living bridge in UL (university of Limerick), a real inspiration for photographers in the area, a real beauty of a bridge...



So as seen on this picture i am not the only one taking picture of the bridge.
It's a pedestrain bridge, between the main campus, and the student accomodation, it's all curvy, and even more beatiful at night.

Here's the website of the company which build that bridge:

City Canal locks

The locks of the city canal, a lovely rierside walk from the city center to UL.


The Limerick canal is planned to be restored by the city council.

The canal was constructed in 1757-1758 to transport goods (heavy goods, such as turf, potatoes, coal and, guess what, Guinness) to and from Limerick City.
