Monochrome Madness- 2-32-

I’ve slowed down with blogging to deal with some life issues but could not miss Leanne Cole’s madness for monochrome on Tuesdays.

There is something wonderful about crossing over a bridge. They have the same effect as doorways. On the other side is a new space and time, often unknown. Some bridges are so long you can’t see what’s at the end of them and other times it’s what’s under them that delights the eye.

So let the rivers run, let all the dreamers wake the nation and cross over the bridge

to  the heart of old Dublin and the Temple Bar district where music and Guinness flow with the rhythm of the old river.

    Lovely variety of moods and sense of time in your MM images Hannah… sometimes it’s the sky and in others it’s the solidity of the bridge. I liked your thoughts about ‘crossing’ too.
    Hope life settles down for you soon .
