This was taken on a Monday morning in the Temple Bar area of Dublin. I am pretty sure this is where "Dublin Girl" was going...

BTW, I only had my iPhone with me. #1544496

This is a great find, Elaine. I love POV and am really impressed how clean the sidewalk and street are -- unless you tidied it up. #10844117

That's what I call some serious beer drinking. What a party that must have been. Very nice shot by the way. #10844282

Tis area in Dublin was crazy. Didn't matter which day of the week it was, they were out from mid afternoon till 4 or 5 am. And they did hose off the sidewalks in the morning. Glad we walked by after the cleanup... #10844929

...serious beer drinking indeed...and how you feel the day after?

Great catch, Elaine. Cell phones do have their uses. #10844938

Funny! We were back at the hotel by 9pm. It was the end of the trip and was very hot! The only reason we know how late they were up was that the hotel had not A/C and we had our windows cracked open.

So no hangovers for us. I don't like beer, but the hard apple cider they served was delicious:) #10845100

There must have been lots of beer consumed!

My husband was sationed in England while in the Air Force back in the late 1980's. he told me here was always a great deal of beer downed on the weekends!

I really like this a bunch, Elaine! Super shot! #10845327

Yeah, that has to be a good mess. . . #10845390

does make you wonder how they all were feeling the next day. Your POV is very nice on this one, Elaine. Great job for a cell phone the cameras are getting better and better. #10846008

Great story telling shot! #10847025

Michael Kelly level-deluxe September 17, 2013

Great shot Elaine! Love the colors and the story. Hard to imagine that many empties from what looks like a small place. They must cater to some serious beer drinkers. #10847142

Great travel shot. I've never seen anything like it. Makes me miss my Irish friends in China #10850206

Beth Spencer September 21, 2013

Great shot! Looks like there was a good time being held there. This is a great picture, especially for your phone. YOu have everything straight too!! #10850527
