St. Patrick’s Day

This .gif image, I must have had in store since 1996 or so … never lost it, no matter computer crashes — to use once a year! 😆 Hats off to whoever created it … I was never able to find out.

Today, we’re all Irish, I guess. Gerry … my man, is of Irish descent.

It’s still early morning …. and a very beautiful one too. Don’t know yet what the plans are for this day. Usually there are activities in Market Square and a ceremony at the Celtic Cross in Saint Patrick’s Place.

We moved to Saint John in November 2008, so 2009 was our first St. Patrick’s Day here. As we were sitting in the café in Market Square, right beside the fountain … they turned on the water, remotely. It was green! Boy, I thought that was so cool … sometimes, I’m easily amused!

I took pictures of it with our little Canon point&shoot camera, all of a sudden wishing I’d had a DSLR camera … I wanted to get that silky, smooth effect that I’d seen in photos. Sooo… that was the beginning … in April I bought my first Nikon and the following year I shot this:

  1. Hi,
    Happy St. Patrick’s Day. 🙂
    I love the green fountain, what a fantastic effect. It’s great when places get into the theme and just go that little bit further.
    I hope you have a wonderful day. 😀

    1. Thank you, Linda 🙂

      a big part of the population here in SJ is of Irish descent, so there’s a lot of activity for this day..

    1. Thanks .. I went down there in the evening, just before closing when there weren’t any people there, and I could take my time.

      Enjoy the Whiskey 🙂

  2. Ahhh . . . beautiful! I have quite a bit of Irish blood in me, but being Jewish I don’t really observe St. Patty’s day…. but it is fun to see others having fun, and everything turning green. 🙂

    1. I don’t know much about my blood lines, but it’s a lot of fun, and I really like the colour green 🙂
