DUBLIN BLUES

Green is the national colour for Ireland but for some strange reason the colour associated with St Patrick is Blue and for centuries, Irish superstition held that wearing green was unlucky.

Don’t ask me to explain why everyone (especially Irish Americans) dresses up in Green on St. Patrick’s Day

For about a year I have tried without success to find a pure blue sky in Dublin. Last week a purchase a new Sigma Macro lens and while testing it I took this photograph on Dame Street (near Dublin Castle) … actually, I did not realise that I had found a blue sky until I uploaded from my flash memory.
