 Doing a jig on St. Patrick’s Day in Edmonton, Alberta

Like any proper Irishman (or least half Irish lineage, in my case), celebrating the birthday of St. Patrick is practically mandatory. Between pints of Guinness and Strongbow, I managed to capture this shot of perfect strangers doing a jig to the traditional Irish tunes that were wafting out of the pub that night. A combination of low light, motion on the camera, plus a longer exposure than most of the photos I take created the apt effect that you see, which tells the story of a most joyous evening!
