It was my third St. Pat's Parade shootout in the downtown area and warmest yet! For those of you wondering what they use to "dye" the river, its a special algae that is actually red but reacts with water to turn into that bright glowing green.

I look forward each year to your take on the green river - nice to see the whole progression here, but I especially like the second shot that shows those first swirls of green in the wake.

Some people just can't wait for the 17th, huh? :-) Like most people in Ireland can't wait to get *out* in time for the tourist invasion! Hehehehe. Great second shot!

Take it easy,
Dave.

They should do that in Boston. The Irish would be happy. At first, I thought this photo was "photoshopped", but it wasn't. A green river? That's pretty different.

That makes for some cool shots! I didn't know they did this. Makes for a good trip one day. Sweet series!
