Wandering Warrior

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Anthony Byrne

Early one cold but beautiful winter's morning I was deep in the Black Valley in Kerry photographing a well known abandoned house when suddenly up out of the woods came this Japanese student who was walking around Ireland with a child's buggy to carry his tent. I asked if he would pose for me and kindly he did. His spontaneous pose reminded me of the "Samurai Warrior" hence the title "Wandering Warrior" . We exchanged e-mails admired the view and he wandered off into the valley with a wave and a smile.

Location: Black Valley, Co. Kerry, Ireland
