Every now and then I get asked "why?" or "what's the point?" well there isn't "a point" as such. These are my experimentations and I find infrared fascinating. This is creating, without sounding too pretentious, "art". After all what is the point of art? For me it is to fulfil a creative desire in me and give me pleasure (not that sort of pleasure!) This does. It is so different to what I am used to and gets my creative juices flowing. That is "why"!
