Re: Photography Abruptly Ended for Me This Year:

Well, frustrated and annoyed. First snowfall of the year and I can't go out to either Bear Creek Park or Green Timbers to photograph it.

Still have pain in the patellar tendon. Don't have a cane and trying to convince my wife that I need one at least temporarily is a pain too. I'm doddering around like a 90 year old grandpa (no offense to 90 year old grandfathers, my humblest apologies), but I'm slower than a snail on Valium.

And on top of that, I need to save up to get the radiator in the car repaired - ran out of coolant (so there's probably a slow leak somewhere). I end up with the car's radiator and coolant level dropping to empty and no way that I can physically walk that distance to the Canadian Tire to buy enough coolant to get the car at a running temperature that doesn't exceed 125 degrees that may buy me some time before I can take the car into the dealership to get it repaired. Did I ever tell you how much I hate that bastard: Murphy? (If anything can go wrong, it will).

So as a result: No photography unless it's from the end of my @#$%ing driveway which is as far as I can totter outside.


Yeah...it's really interesting. Did I tell you I hate Murphy? Been trying to evict his sorry butt but he won't leave.


So...no shots like this one...this year.


Just this boring thing from the end of my driveway.

Sorry, but I ain't going to stress my legs and head out to Green Timbers; halfway there hearing a *pop* as my tendon ruptures. Sorry to *****, but well... Frustration building up and I needed a release valve.

Re: Photography Abruptly Ended for Me This Year:

Got so choked about being stuck inside, I decided to risk my ankles and tottered out to the road on Sunday night to take these images. Not the best, but at least it somewhat sated my photography bug for a while. Still PO'd about the car and the antibiotic side-effects.
