So in the last two weeks I have had my phone stolen, my car’s battery has died and needs replacing and I have had a persistent cough when recovering from a cold which has caused me to sprain a muscle in my rib cage and makes me double up with pain every time I move a bit funny, and ended up with me going to A&E today… I’m previewing my book at Interrobang in two days time and I am hoping with every fibre of my being that my streak of bad luck is now over…
Hello new followers (and old). Sorry it’s been rather quiet here of late, but there are a number of very good reasons for my recent blogging failure.
First of all, I have been building a darkroom again, and it’s finally finished! I will confess that I have spent quite a bit of my time recently fiddling with old photographs and making contact sheets - there’s a rather exquisite feeling when you can finally work the way you want to work again. As a devotee to analogue technology negative scans just don’t cut it, and I’ve had 18 months of nothing else!
Linked to the making new prints of old photographs in the darkroom is the fact that I’ve just taken on an enormous, scary, but very exciting creative project, which is likely to occupy me for most of the rest of the year. It’s still in the very embryonic stages right now so I won’t say more, but I’ll come clean soon enough I’m sure.
On a more personal level I’ve also rather badly injured my leg and can barely walk, which although doesn’t really affect blogging itself it does rather get in the way of shooting new stuff. And it makes me more inclined to sit around feeling sorry for myself, especially as I know it’s likely to take around 2 months to heal.
That said, I promise there is definitely stuff going on behind the scenes and blogging activity will pick up in the near future! In the mean time feel free to ask me things/send me stuff. I may be quiet but I’m still here, lurking.
Thank you for putting up with me!
…but I just snapped (again) and had a go at some more of the puerile-minded oafs that keep adding smut to my photograph (yes regular followers, porngate is still going strong behind the scenes). Sigh.
