Weekly Photo Challenge: Twisted


From Dublin.

Even the little details in Dublin feel distinctly Irish: the lampposts have little shamrocks embedded in the swirls.  The shamrock has been a national symbol of Ireland for centuries; it comes from the legend of St. Patrick using the plant with three leaves to explain the Christian concept of the Holy Trinity (three persons, one God).

I particularly like this image of the lamppost because its curves contrast well with all the straight lines in the Georgian building behind it.

    Lovely take on the Challenge: love the juxtaposition of the curved metal against the straight lines of the building!

      Thanks! I took several pictures of the shamrock lampposts, and this one is my favorite for that very reason.
