Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!!

A few days ago, I shared pictures with you from our trip to Pennsylvania last weekend. If you missed it, you can check it out here. I mentioned that we stopped in Gettysburg on our way home and shared a handful of pictures of my favorite monument with you – the Irish Brigade.

Standing alone in the woods is a large, beautifully carved celtic cross with a life-sized Irish Wolfhound laying at its base. Supposedly it is quite haunted, and when we stopped to take pictures of it this green flare kept appearing only when I included the Wolfhound in my shot. Even more interesting is that the flare moves in my other images, even though I hadn’t changed compositions (I tried to retake the same shot when I saw the flare on my display). I’ll leave it up to you to decide what it is. Regardless, I felt this couldn’t be a more appropriate image for our theme this week.
