Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day! Every year here in Chicago, the Chicago River is dyed a rather bright green color in honor of the festive Irish holiday.
The dye is a vegetable-based substance, so no harm is done to the water (or inhabitants thereof) whatsoever. I took this photo yesterday; the river was dyed several days ago, and from what I understand, it is quite a glowing green for the first few hours. But the color of the river above is quite nice, don’t you think?
Now here is something interesting. While I was walking along the river, I spotted a white ‘duck’, I think. There he was, swimming by himself in the green, sun-drenched water. I tried to get a good picture of him, but with his white feathers, the green water, and the sunshine, I just couldn’t capture a super shot. Here it is, nonetheless:
Rather a ‘ghost-looking’ duck, don’t you think? Oh, here is another photo to put this ghost-guy into perspective:
So a very, “Happy St. Patrick’s Day Week” to all! May the luck of the Irish be with you!
