Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #88 – Chaos

In Connemara, Ireland, peat is still a fairly common fuel source.  These bricks have been cut from the ground and left to dry out.  Sometimes we saw them in neat little pyramids or piles, but I rather liked the chaos of this cluster.

The ruins of Ballycarbery castle in Cahersiveen, Ireland show how nature and time can turn even neat stacks of stones in wilderness.

You can find more chaos at the original Lens-Artist challenge.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Chaos


From Inishmore, Aran Islands.

We generally think of walls as beings of structure and order, but this image shows their hidden chaos.  The stone walls of the Aran Islands are famous for their unique structure and ubiquity; there is so much stone in the ground, the inhabitants had to pile it up somewhere to clear fields.  There are miles and miles of stone walls on the islands, all hand-made without mortar.
