I love this picture because of its brightness, its lovely announcement of itself as entrance to receiving old slow ways of communication, its rusty ridges contrasting with its sunshine turquoise colours... It's a statement of its function and it's a greeting to new enveloped visitors.. it's clear and it's mysterious. It's Dublin but also that rare captured happiness - Dublin in the sun. It is a small monument to history and its a quaint loveliness for Dubliners of today who treasure their past cultures. It's a simple picture but it's also an invitation to the curious to ponder what intimacies passed through the cave of its mouth.
