A Dubliner

This picture dates back from March 2000. I took it during my visit in Dublin, from a throwaway camera that was quite popular at the time, but it was a poor quality one, so it was a poor picture. Do you recognize him, even in the shadow? Yes, it is James Joyce. Well, the statue of him. Shame on me, I only ever read one short story of Dubliners from him. I have Ulysses somewhere among my books back home, which I promised myself I'd read one day. Anyway, it is Saint Patrick's Day tomorrow, so I thought I'd share this picture of James Joyce for the occasion.

EVERYBODY intends to read Ulysses "some day!"

Don't feel too bad...Dublin is still the only one of his works that I've read as well!
