I will be posting a series of images from the Aran Islands that are contained within my folio.  I will also be posting larger images so that they can be downloaded and printed out if anyone wishes.

It is sometimes difficult to define beauty. Actually, it is impossible.

This house on the island of Inishmore particularly struck me because it has apparently weathered the years, taking its hits but refusing to yield, which is the story of the people of the Aran Islands. The stone fence continues its job and holds fast as nature does its inevitable thing.

Beauty is not only new and pristine, but also old and worn, full of stories unable to be told.
