mural-ish monday

a bus window shot  I took the last time I was on a bus back in Sept.  It looks like he is standing on top of the sign but he is actually on the side of the house.
Guinness Toucan
The Guinness toucan was developed for an advertising campaign by John Gilroy in the 1930s. ... A colorful toucan smiles serenely with one or two pints of the black stuff balanced easily on its giant beak. This iconic vintage Guinness poster decorates the walls of Irish pubs and homes of beer lovers worldwide.

  1. A cute one! Nothing for me, though. Had one once and got sooo tired from it... bed-time! ;-)

  2. Hi Bill.

    Good photo.
    I also thought he was on top of the signpost.
    But the side of the house is also very nice.

    Greetings from Patricia.

  3. Guinness. Stout. The only beer I'll drink. I've never seen the toucan before, but I like it. Optical illusions are great when photographed.

  6. It shows that my attraction to Guinness is poorly developed since I am totally unfamiliar with this sign. Next time I am in the liquor store picking up wine I will check in the imported beer section to see whether they carry Guinness. i suspect they do. But I don't know of anyone who drinks it. No doubt it would be a favourite for expat Irish living here.

  11. Cute toucan mural Bill, and certainly looks as if he's on top of the sign.
    Thanks for participating in Monday Murals.

  12. That is pretty amazing the way you caught that photo perfectly to make it look like it was sitting on that sign.

    Es dificil coincidir el letrero y el tucan te quedo perfecta, desde la ventana del colectivo.
    Me gusto escuchar la historia de este tucan hecho logo.
    Un placer visitarte!!
    Feliz lunes!!

  14. A fine takeoff on that famous 1930s Guinness poster by John Gilroy. With this image there is no need to write the name Guinness.

  17. I have a pint glass with the toucan on it. I can too if the toucan can.

    God bless.

  18. Tiene mucho mérito como la has captado. Efectivamente da la impresión, de que está encima del letrero.

    Besos

  22. Nice capture. Back when I drank beer a Guinness was my choice. Fun to be in Ireland one time in a pub drinking it on my birthday and everyone there sang happy birthday to me. Great memory.

  23. I love a good Guinness in Ireland, but it doesn't taste the same here in the states.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ah, Guinness. We toured the plant in Dublin in 2013; I'd never even heard of it before that. My husband fell in love with it, but I just don't like it beyond a sip or two. When we went back to Ireland in 2017 he had Guinness to his heart's content. I had tea, LOL.

  25. Sangat unik!
    Very Unique!.

    The beer advertising campaign from Guinness has a very good concept, different from most product advertisements. I am also amazed by your carefulness in obtaining photo objects.
    Greetings
