Captured underneath Dun Laoghaire pier in 2004, this photo was deliberately over exposed by four stops to create the shadow defining black and to seperate the image into two components.

I realised that people were walking by and waited until I managed to get two souls (more or less) equidistant from each pier. Without people this shot would have lacked movement, an integral part of its composition.
