Man with tortoise, Kamakura, near Tokyo, Japan. This fellow appear to be out walking his tortoise - which, contrary to well known fables, was moving pretty quickly, trotting alongside him and doting over him like a dog. He had to restrain it at the pedestrian crossing to stop it from the road. When the light went green, he picked it up and carried it across!

Louth , most of the bridge, including its central pylon and 56 cables are situated in County Meath, although the last few northern most cables partly stretch across the county boundary into County Louth. The bridge carries traffic from the M1, across the River Boyne, linking Dublin and Belfast. It was built as part of the M1 Drogheda bypass, diverting traffic from the old N1, now reclassified as the R132, around Drogheda and out of the town centre.
