Shadow of The Black Dog!

Oh what a rut I am in! Plenty of reading but almost complete lack of camera activity.

Work is very stressful at the moment, which isn’t helping with regard to the stress I am feeling towards my studies. I find that am fearful of my camera, how can that be so? I love my photography, but hate my apparent lack of creativity.

I am reading, visiting exhibitions and have enjoyed my first OCA study visit. A small consolation is that others I have chatted to have found themselves in the same boat as me. I am hoping that this coming weekends study visit to the Brighton Photo Biennial will shake of the’Black Dog‘ that currently haunts me and help re-energise my creative impulse.

(I had A black dog, his name was depression, 2013)

I have the rest of next week off and want to be able to use it constructively and not waste it with negative energy. I am determined to make some progress with this course. I have wanted to do it for so long and was so pleased to eventually be able to book it.

I have a huge amount of respect with any other people who suffer in this way.

Lifesaver

Ask me who went on holiday with camera, associated lenses and tripod, then realised that the tripod quick release plate was back at home on his other camera…….what a wally…..never a truer word was spoken!

However technology and modern living to the rescue….ta da!

A quick search on iPad to find that the quick release plate was available on Amazon…bingo. Also available for next day delivery to Amazon locker at holiday site…awesome.

Thanks Amazon…a real lifesaver.

P.S. I had been meaning to get a second quick release plate……honest!
