Brocach – The Badger Den

Brocach - Gaelic for Badger Den

For those of you not intimate with University of Wisconsin sports, the UW – Madison teams are all named the Badgers. As in “Go, Wisconsin Badgers!”

Brocach is the Gaelic word for Badger Den. What a great name for a Madison pub on the Capitol Square, just across the street from the State Capitol building.

This wonderful bagpiper was playing at Saturday’s Farmers Market.

    Very cool photo, Bo. I love the reflection.

    Looks like the kind of place I’d like to have a beverage (probably not a milkshake) & food. I’d second Robin’s observation – cool photo.

    I’ve got to agree with Robin, the reflection is really nice. It’s actually my favorite part of the whole photograph.

    That is the coolest capture!!!! I like that the bagpipe player was captured from behind with his reflection in the window. And that is a great reflection. I love photos like this.

    Excellent, Bo. 🙂

    I LOVE bagpipes! This is a great photo, too. But, I also noticed that you managed to “steer clear” of getting your own reflection in the glass … (no one there with a camera)! 😀

    Robin – If it’s a reflection or a shadow, I have a hard time passing by. LOL

    gandalf – If you were any where near, I’d personally buy you an Irish ale, m’ lad!

    Chris – Thanks.

    Anna -He saw me in the window, though, and turned around for a moment.

    Janet – Mmm. Trade secret, me hiding in the mirror.
