Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge : Metal and Wood

Window on the world

Window on the world

We came across this quaint traditonal old farmhouse near Kenmare, Co Kerry, that has been renovated to the style of the 50s,  and we enjoyed a cuppa and pastry in this room.   On the window along with the teapot and candlestick is what looks like an old meat safe, which would have been used for storage of perishables, and placed in the coldest part of the house.   I think the picture fits perfectly with Cee’s challenge for this week.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge : Metal

The ever resourceful Cee has come up with a new series of challenges, and this week the theme is Metal or the Autumn Season.

I live near Cork City, a very old city of many bridges because the river Lee splits in to two channels before it runs through the city, and then joins up into one channel again as it runs in to Cork Harbour.    It is no wonder tourists get confused to find that there is not one, but two, channels of the  river to the north and south of the city, and it gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘Meet you by the river’!

One of the bridges spanning the (north channel) of the Lee is Daly’s Bridge, this is a pedestrian bridge, and is the only suspension bridge over the river.   It is known locally as the Shakey Bridge, as the  bridge moves when someone runs or jumps on the wooden platform. The bridge is mainly wrought iron, and was built in 1926.   It connects a suburb known as Sunday’s Well with the main city park,  Fitzgerald’s Park.

The bridge is even painted white, so it fits perfectly with Cee’s Challenge.

Travel Theme : Metal 2

For this week’s travel theme, I am staying close to home, with some metal signs.  The first is on one of the beaches near Crosshaven, in County Cork, where the residents do a great job in keeping the beaches clean.

The second photo is a very realistic picture of Hook Head Lighthouse, giving some of the history of the lighthouse.
