These two photos and the next one were taken last weekend in Galway, Ireland. Photos no.4 to 6 are a bit older. Post edited to add two more photos, one from yesterday and one from March.
Here’s where the boat was (view from Nimmo’s Pier):
The swan was just around the corner in the left middleground. Near the centre of the photograph is the Wolfe Tone Bridge, and in the right middleground you can see part of the Spanish Arch. Here is the Spanish Arch from the other side, with a heron and some pigeons – the former a frequent visitor, the latter virtually resident:
A close-up of the same heron having lunch:
The Wolfe Tone Bridge with the Corrib river in full flow beneath it:
And the same bridge from the other end, with traffic in full flow upon it; and a strange combination of poster and graffitum:
Finally, a view of the Long Walk (where the colourful houses are) from Nimmo’s Pier yesterday. The swanlike boat from photos no.1 and 3 above is visible in the left background. Resolution is low, but you might also be able to see a pair of ducks perched on the side of the waterlogged boat, and, near the centre, a fisherman chatting with a boy on a bicycle. The splash of yellow in the foreground is ragwort, I think.
