One Shot: Aran Islands, Ireland — March 2006

The photos of mine that I like best always have a sense of juxtaposition, whether it’s an object in the foreground slicing through the background, man-made structures in an otherwise natural environment, or, as in the photo above, something rough and destroyed in a beautiful setting. My friends and I came across this totaled car while on a bike tour of the Aran Islands, off the coast of Galway, Ireland in 2006. Whatever damage that may have occurred in an accident was helped along by stones thrown through the windows and garbage piled up inside.  I like how the bay in the background, the stone walls that have been standing there for decades (if not longer) and the general tranquility of the scene contrast nicely with the demolished car abandoned in front.
