Photographer's Note

These very iconic, colorful doors are a frequent sight in Dublin. Our guide said that they were painted bright colors after the death of Queen Victoria! Apparently she visited Ireland a time or two but for some reason wasn't overly fond of Ireland or the Irish people, so when she died in the early 20th century her "subjects" were instructed to paint their doors black as a sign of mourning. The always-clever Dubliners had a different idea: they painted their doors bright colors, not really in "celebration" of her demise, but... lol At least, that's the story we heard...
