abc wednesday - I is for "Irish"

On St. Patrick's Day here in NYC (well,
actually, this is Brooklyn: the courthouse and 
my subway station), it doesn't matter
whether your family is from Dublin or
Dubai, County Cork or Cancun—on this one day, 
we're all Irish.  Erin go bragh from
English-Scots-French-Polish-Danish me!

[See more abc wednesday here.]


  1. Happy Saint Patrick's Day Alexa!
    I love your photos. I've never seen this before. It's wonderful, I love it.
    & I feel the same way about St. Patrick's Day!

  2. When she (whoever “she” is) said she wanted to get her lips into something green she meant beer not this.

  3. My great-grandmother was Irish, but from the North, but never mind! I love Saint Patrick's Day and your photos are a good reminder for me, since not much goes on here.

  4. Oh, well now, talk about perfect timing for today's theme ~ well done, Alexa! And Happy St Paddy's Day ter you, too.

  5. Hi!
    Great "I" shot. Is the building really green? WOW! And yes I have green on a little shamrock necklace. Have a great St. Patrick's day!

  6. That's green lighting, no? I love this shot.

    Brooklyn IS part of NYC, at least since 1898.

    On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you!

  7. Happy St. Patrick's day, all!
    TG -- I think I'll have a green martini instead, and I've Sherrie and Roger -- Yes, the courthouse (in Brooklyn, definitely part of NYC but vive la différence) is bathed in green light.

  8. Well, that comment was just a tad disjointed—must have been the green martini! :~}
