Scherzer Bridge, Dublin Docklands, Ireland


Finally a clear day – Friday, I had the morning to myself. After stepping off the Luas (Dublin’s answer to light rail transport) I walked from Harcourt Street,  along Grand Canal and finally leading to the Docklands. This is a picture one of the Scherzer Bridge at the Custom House.

It is hard to ignore the rugged beauty of the two Scherzer Bridges on the north quays, one at Custom House Quay, the other at New Wapping Street. These were constructed to a design patented by William Scherzer of Chicago and installed in 1912. The bridges operated as lock gates between the River Liffey and dock and canals beyond. – Dublin Docklands


Wow what another beautiful shot! I really do love architecture and shapes. All the curves, lines, and shadows work here in perfect harmony. I am a huge fan of your work Gavin! Keep up the work!
