Street Photo Diary: St. Patricks Day Edition

Every year, at this time, the city of Dublin get’s a little greener. I’m not talking about some environmental initiative though. It’s not a sudden growth of trees or grass either. No, instead I’m talking about the annual build up to St. Patricks Day. Where every shop, pub and restaurant does it’s patriotic duty and adorns their premises in the requisite amount of green trappings, from Shamrocks to Leprechauns. If you didn’t know what was going on you’d think there was some kind of plastic outbreak.

50 Shades of Green - Happy St. Patricks Day

To celebrate St. Patricks Day, I thought I’d share something a little different to the inevitable pictures of nothing but shamrocks and leprechauns. So, instead, here are 50 images of Dublin from my Streets of Dublin Project, all with a green theme. These have all been taken over the last few years at various times of the year, and feature the colour green as the main subject. And, yes, there are a few shamrocks and leprechauns in here too! (Well, it is St. Patricks Day)
