Galway Cathedral And The Salmon Weir Bridge
Photograph - Photo Art
The first time I spotted the dome of Galway Cathedral, I was certain I was looking at the roof of an old world church. But by the time I crossed the Salmon Weir Bridge to Nun's Island to check it out in person, I had already read up on the history of the cathedral. Despite it's nod to the architecture of traditional cathedrals, it was built in the 1960's. And if you have ever had the chance to wander inside, you'll see that it's a modern church from the gorgeous but modern stained glass designs in its windows.
Still, from this vantage point on my last night in Galway, it has a wonderfully historic feel, doesn't it? I can imagine this church having stood here for hundreds and hundreds of years.
I think that timeless feel was why I was moved to create a textured piece of photo art. I wanted to create something that had vintage flavor. And it's special t me because it was the last time of many that I stood on the banks of the River Corrib and looked across at Galway Cathedral.
