St. Patricks day, a time to honor the patron saint of Ireland in one of the most both Irish and collegiate way possible: painting the sidewalk with your liquid lunch (and for some breakfast and dinner). This holiday was not taken lightly in the rather un-Irish Boulder. But non the less, the green came out and the beer went down on March 17th, and the weekend before, and even the weekend after, this one got stretched out a bit. In elementary school if you didn't wear green you got pinched. But if you were not decked out in bright kelly green in college then you faced far worse than a pinch, no entry to the party. I took full advantage of people's excited state to take some portraits of this years St. Patrick's day participants with my trusty camera was in hand.
