Galway, Ireland, June 2014
Mere hours before boarding our flight to the UK for a month, we learned that Michelle was pregnant with our beloved Dottie. We told my parents on the way to the airport, and hers while boarding our connecting flight in New York. During our first checkpoint in Ireland, we had a strange and frightening experience with two wild horses. Nothing of any significance transpired but for a moment I imagined my pale, gangly self being ushered off of the cliff into the Atlantic. Suffice it to say, I have a healthy respect for the power and strength of horses and they could certainly smell my fear beneath a thin layer of unwashed plane clothes. The following morning, we came upon another pair of horses. This time more tame. A mother shielding her foal. At first I was fixated on the foal, but as I got closer I noticed the raw muscle of the mother horse bulking from her sides. The multitudes that nature contains, in land and in beast, is extraordinary. Tenderness and wildness. Strength and frailty. For me this photograph encompasses those layers.
