If I really wanted to keep up with your prolific output, then I'd need to visit here a lot more often...

I really like the way this has turned out - beautiful soft colour rendering and lovely smooth bokeh.

Best wishes to you for Saint Patrick's Day from Ireland. I'd like to spend a lot more time here right now, but I must go out and photograph the Parade...

Hi Feenixx,

Prolific doesn't really mean of value or quality but I make my best.

Thank you for your words, I don't take flowers photos so this is a real compliment.

Did you know Saint Patrick's Day have become a very important celebration in Buenos Aires? The whole Irish community -and non-Irish descendants also- gathers too to celebrate, dress in green and drink beer along several blocks closed to the traffic and the street party goes on for hours (starting early in the evening as an after-hour in the financial district). It doesn't compete with NY Parade but it has its own charm and it is very joyful. Some people dress as leprechauns!!

Enjoy your Saint Patrick's!!

Thanks a lot - I did enjoy it!

Draken, it seems to be catching on in many places. They even have Parades in Germany now, in some towns.

New York and Chicago seem to have set the trend for the rest of the World. When I first moved to Ireland (35 years ago), P-day was a fairly quiet church holiday, and the pubs closed early (like on a Sunday). Now, they call it a "Festival".

I took 72 shots of the crowd and only 2 shots of the parade... and uploaded only four of the lot. I must now continue browsing your gallery for another while...
