YUUUUMMMMMM!!!...ABC Wednesday, brought to you by the letter "Y"



Guinness. For strength!

I took this photo on a trip to Ireland a few years ago; I did a whole series of pub fronts; I loved this one for its ancient Guinness ad, and for the beautiful blue of the facade.

Here's another:


There is something about Ireland that is magical, whether you are in a city or the countryside. I've often said it's no wonder it's the land in which leprechauns live...if I were a magical being, I'd pick Ireland as my home as well.
