This week Sara at Daily Post has challenged us to find photos that draw the eye beyond the foreground, or point of focus. This is a challenge indeed, for there are so many possibilities in my photo library. I have chosen images from our recent trip overseas, I hope you enjoy each one … and with the flowers at Giverney, look for the almost hidden cottage in the background .
One of our favourite corners of Ireland is Conemarra in County Galway on the west coast. When we were there in 2006 we stayed in a tiny cottage on a bare slope, where there were more stones than grazing land. The waterways were virtually deserted, just right for peaceful reflection and sketching. Nearby was the most picturesque fishing harbor, a little town called Roundstone, with a seafood restaurant. We dined at ODowd’s, and watched the sun set over the Twelve Pins (or Bens), and lights slowly come on around the bay.
