Ready to Celebrate


Yesterday afternoon I was driving toward home when I spotted this fellow standing at a bus stop.  I made a u-turn and went back to take the photo.  What a splendidly handsome fellow! He said he was on his way to the big celebration at Rosie McCaffrey's Irish Pub.  Now here is the embarrassing part.  Even though we introduced ourselves, by the time I arrived at my house, I realized that I had forgotten his name.  Shame on me!  Even though I can't share his name with you, I can truly say that he was the highlight of my St. Patricks Day.

He certainly looks authentic and struck a great pose for you.

I give you credit! I find it so hard to stop the car, much less turn around and go back.

But, yes, it was worth it. Fantastic portrait. I'll bet his name was Patrick!

Kate said...

Wise to go back, Sharon. He looks as though he was planning to have a really good time. Handsome fellow is wonderful garb!!

Don't worry, there'll be lots of people who won't even remember their own names after the St Patrick's Day celebrations!

You wouldn't catch me in a skirt. Nice shot.

HA! I'm always making u-turns for photos myself and forgetting names as well! He's a dandy!

I laughed out loud when I saw him. Not because I think he's funny looking, but because of the joy and happiness on his face and his obvious love of life. :)

Oh what a splendid gentleman Sharon, I think we should call him 'Shamus' fits quite well oui!! He looks so chuffed that you came back to take his picture.

Lowell said...

Good for you. You couldn't let this opportunity pass. What a perfect Irish face! Did you do a close-up, too?

I got to get me an outfit like that. He looks great. Love the bus bench too.
