Saint Patrick's Day 2011

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all!

Here in Saint John, there’s a large group of people that claim Irish ancestry. St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated all week. It’s still early morning so I haven’t been out, but I’m sure there will be lots of activities.

The fountain in Market Square is sporting green water. This is last year’s edition. Three years ago, I was sitting right beside the fountain when they turned on the green. I should be thankful to that fountain, because it’s really the reason why I got myself a DSLR camera!

We had a P&S at the time, and when I saw the green water, I was thinking how much I would have loved to taken a long exposure of it … to get that silky water effect. That’s how my photo interest started.

Not only that! … way back, I met my husband in an Irish chat … had I not chosen Ireland, I wouldn’t have met him and subsequently not been where I am today. It’s all part of life’s mosaic … how all the little pieces fall into place.
