Upper Gallery of the Long Room — Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Books or Paper

This is our entry in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Books or Paper.

We visited the Library of Trinity College Dublin in Dublin, Ireland, this spring. This photo shows rows upon rows of ancient books in the Long Room (upper gallery.)  The lower gallery is similarly impressive, but it also contains rows upon rows of tourists.

The Guinness Waterfall

This is our entry in The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Liquid.

We recently visited the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, Ireland. Their stout is made from Wicklow mountain water, roasted malted barley, hops, and brewer’s yeast. One floor of the multistory building is dedicated to those four ingredients. The most dramatic display is a waterfall representing the very special water used in making Guinness stout.

… a fish needs a bicycle — Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: May 13, 2018

This is our entry in Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: May 13, 2018.

This animated sculpture is located on the third (“World of Advertising”) floor of  The Guinness Storehouse® in Dublin, Ireland.  It  brings to life the saying coined by the Australian Irina Dunn in 1970:

A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.
