I freely admit that I always wanted to become a painter. Two of my sisters, one older and one younger, are very good artists. I realized early in my teens that they were able to convey what their eyes saw via the hand that held the brush to the page and I did not have that gift. Shortly after that I discovered photography and I record my vision through this medium.
So when an abstract picture presents itself to me, like these buoys on the harbour wall at Blacksod, I could not resist.
