Taken in Co. Donegal in the north-west of Ireland, this photo captures a lot of what is dear to me about that part of the world. Small, battered country roads litter the countryside, leading to wherever you might want them to. When passed by cars, it is completely normal to wave to the driver, regardless of if it's a close friend or complete stranger. The dog in the pickup seems almost as though it's taking in the fresh, salty air that fills your lungs there. Despite the typical overcast weather, there is always a charm about this small corner of the world. Having been struggling to capture any images that day, the moment this pickup truck passed and upon seeing the dog, I could see the final product instantly in my head.
