The Sean O’ Casey bridge is a pedestrian footbridge that spans across the River Liffey. Connecting Custom House Quay and City Quay. The bridge was constructed and completed in 2005.
The cantilever design of the bridge causes the walking platform of the bridge to shake and bounce as you make your way across.
Due to this cantilever motion, the bridge is quite a difficult place to shoot long exposure shots with a tripod without motion affecting the sharpness of the photos.
The location of the bridge is great if you manage to stabilise your camera on the bridge and get a photo of the River Liffey looking down towards the National Convention Centre. During my time shooting on this bridge I realised that even one pedestrian walking heavily or a late night runner can have an effect on the photos.
