Bina's Cottage Connemara Galway Ireland. by 

The cottage was the home of Bina McLoughlin up until her death in 2001 at the age 72.Bina was a larger than life character who shared her tiny cottage on the slopes of the Maam Turk mountains with cats, a peacock, donkeys, goats, sheep and a litter of dogs .She was such a popular Woman in the area that she soon became know as “Queen of Connemara”. Visitors to the cottage where entertained by stories and her great repertoire of ballads.Bina, who never drank or smoked, was a great singer and no social event in Connemara was complete without her. A fire in Bina McLoughlin’s house in January 1995 destroyed most of her possessions.

There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed and these are my thoughts.

PS You don’t take a photograph, you make it.
