An Abandoned Dream

dsc_0203About the Location:  This image was created near the Trafask Bog on the remote Beara Peninsula of Ireland.  I had rented a car from Dublin and had one night to enjoy somewhere else before heading to a meeting in Cavan (up north).  I choose to stay in the sleepy harbor town of Glengariff which was a good departure point for the Wild Atlantic Way (the most scenic of drives along the southwestern peninsulas of Ireland, including the Ring of Kerry).  Along this drive, I kept seeing little roads pulling off behind bushes and trees heading to the coastline.  I just picked one at random and drove down to the waters edge.  There were only beautiful green fields of long grass, but one had an old, stone farmhouse waiting to be explored.

About the Shot:  I awkwardly hopped a barbed-wire fence and walked through the thick grass that was wet with morning dew to take this shot.  My shoes and pants (up to my knees) were soaked as I walked around toward the back of the house.  The scene was so beautiful, I lost myself in thought at the idea of this building’s original inhabitants.  It was a simple home, but in the most inspiring of places.
