Hop On, Hop off the Spire

The infamous Dublin Spire with a tour bus in the foreground.

“The Dublin Spire is one hundred and twenty metres tall, making it by far the tallest structure in Dublin city centre. It is three metres wide at the base and tapers to a 15 centimetre wide beacon at the top. The top section is perforated and lit by small LEDs.”

I like these: What Goes Up and Rosie and Nora.

I will never understand why Dublin council were allowed to cut down the many beautiful trees that were on that street, only to replace the century-plus-old trees with a big metal penis.

It might look good on some days, but mostly, it is an eyesore, and a bloody obvious phallic symbol.

Sorry to detract from your photo with such a distraught request to leave nature alone and stop replacing it with useless rubbish.
