Growing up in a small fishing village having buoys scattered about everywhere was not an unusual occurrence nor one I thought was anything special.
It wasn't until I moved away from the ocean for a period of time that I understood the symbolism of the buoy....fresh air, salt water, fresh fish and freedom! In fact I found myself photographing them whenever I came across a bunch somewhere.
When my Fisherman neighbour asked if I would have any use for a bunch of hand whittled mini Buoys, of course I said YES! So they've been tucked away until recently. Hope you enjoy their transformation.
