Day 77—Irish Moss . . . Or Not

It is St. Patrick’s Day and since I’m a quarter Irish, I feel I must acknowledge my ancestry (my Great Grandfather came to the US from Ireland in the second half of the 19th century) so when I noticed what I thought was Irish Moss on the brick planter on my patio, I decided to photograph it. On closer inspection, I realized that this is REAL moss, not Irish moss. But hey, it’s green and I liked the shot. Not only is this not a photograph of Irish Moss, the bricks that it’s covering are orange which is a bit of irony on St. Paddy’s Day and a nod to my English grandmother.

  1. I wouldn’t know the difference between Irish moss and real moss- but I really like the photo! The 300mm makes it look like a macro- wonderful focus!!! Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

    And look at that wild ISO- you GO, girl!!!
