Those last months I have been seriously lagging behind with my photography.
There’s good and bad reasons behing that. First of course my foot surgery prevented me from running about making nice pictures. But it did not prevent me from writing posts. In fact, I have never posted as much as when I was sitting idly at home.
Then I have been in a nice kidney-stone-episode those last weeks. Yes. the fun never stops for me!
But it’s been months now that I’m mobile again and those darn kidney stones don’t bother me ALL the time, so why am I not out with a camera in hand?
It’s not only photography that’s on the back burner for the moment. I’m following a number of great blogs (Thanks Dan, Josh, Hamish, James, and Chroma – whatever your real name is, and of course all the other great blogs I can’t all name here). I love to read what they write and look at their photos but I have a serious backlog of posts to view. Can’t simply manage to shake myself up and sit down to an hour or two of marveling at theis posts and writing meaningless comments.
Not that I’m terribly busy otherwise. It rather seems that I’m slow in every possible way of dealing with life those last weeks. Listless I call it! Life seems dull, the streets are dull… and even when I have my XA2 with me I often can’t get bothered to take it out of my pocket. Unbelievable, really!
I’d love to go out and make photos, I’d love to write more posts, I’d love to read more posts and interact with you more. But I’m stuck! I post the odd old photo, I write some more or less meaningless stuff, illustrated again by old photos…
If there’s something like writer’s block for us I think I caught the virus.
And that’s where you come in! Did you experience this too some time in your lives? What did you do to get over it?
Thanks for your precious input and thanks for being here!
