I recently moved to Ireland from the west coast of the United States. I am posting photos of the wild and wonderful things I encounter.

Georgian on my mind
Back at Merrion Square we actually had a sunny evening. I love the architecture here; it's so clean and tidy. These Georgian buildings are defined by their proportion and balance. At the time, a very regular appearance was sought after in architecture. Merrion Square kind of clears out in the evenings; most buildings are now businesses and few are still residences. You can probably tell this is a posh area because of the Mercedes and Land Rovers, except sometimes even the rich get booted. Bummer on a Friday night. At least you can still take a horse drawn carriage to dinner. The 1790s are still here, if you look for them.
