I decided to share with you my (every) Day of DH walk. I’m very fortunate to be living only a 15 minutes walk from Trinity College in Dublin, and the walk is not bad either! Especially on a beautiful sunny day like that.
I cross the Seán O’Casey Bridge every morning. The view over the Liffey River, Dublin Docklands, Samuel Beckett Bridge, Poolbeg chimneys and Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship is stunning.
When I get to Trinity College Campus, this sculpture always makes me stop – the reflection never looks the same: ‘Apples and Atoms’ by Eilís O’Connell RHA, Celebrating Ernest T.S. Walton 1903-95, Nobel Laureate
The campus is in the heart of our busy city, but it feels like a totally different world with all the green treasures. The trees, especially the cherry trees are currently blooming too!
This is one of my favourite buildings on the campus, the Museum building designed by Thomas Deane and Benjamin Woodward. It is inspired by the Byzantine architecture of Venice and was built in 1853-57. Now it houses the Zoological Museum.
And another gem on my way through the Berkeley Library forecourt – Arnaldo Pomodoro’s ‘Sfera con Sfera’, the ‘Pomodoro sphere’, as it is known locally.
#PomodoroSelfie – I couldn’t resist!
And my final destination – Trinity Long Room Hub. My desk is on the top floor where I spent most of my DH time. This building is home to Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute, Trinity College’s DAH students, Cendari and Trinity College Library Dublin’s Digital Resources and Imaging Services (DRIS). Is it as good as it sounds! Great place to work!
Work is waiting so… see you later!
