A Thing for Guinness


This was one of those blink-and-you-miss-it moments in Dublin, Ireland, last spring.

At the time I was sitting at the back of the upper deck of a double decker bus during a guided tour of the old city. We’d just gone around the Guinness brewery at St. James Gate and were heading back to James Street when I happened, just happened, to look to my right where a number of decrepit buildings sat.

Imagine my surprise when this little masterpiece came into view.

With no time to think about it I just started clicking away hoping that I would capture something of reasonable quality.

As far as I can remember no one else on the bus noticed it, because there were no other expressions of surprise. By the time I was able to tell my friend about it, it was gone.

So, if you’re ever taking a guided tour of Dublin in a double decker bus, be sure to keep your eyes peeled around the Guinness brewery (I think you’ll find this on Crane Street) for the red head with a thing for Guiness.

  1. This is so cute. It’s always nice to discover something along the street.
    and those that you’ll miss out in a blink of the eyes are even more precious.
    Good catch!
