The cubs return

By Magneto
Sunset over Dublin.
I don't usually get all arty and philosophical about pictures, but apart from the composition and lighting in this picture it is powerfully symbolic (to me anyway) of the place where modern Ireland finds itself. On the right, moving inwards, there is the replica famine ship, the millennium spire, a government building and the HQ of the trade union movement. On the left we have new office buildings, gentrified pubs, a bank head office with a glowing window eyeing up the city and above all the relentless cranes as the new economic boom takes hold. The river flows, linking all, but the bollards in the foreground seem to lead us inevitably to the new global future and away from our past, for good or ill.

Enough day dreaming, wont mean a thing to anybody outside Ireland I guess, enjoy the picture!
