I'm feeling much better! Thank you, to the frends who wished me well, I really appreciated your thoughts. The flu, or was it a bad cold, was a miserable experience. Feeling physically weak and very uncomfortable is bad enough, but on top the discomfort, I felt hopeless. I couldn't muster up the enthusiasm to consider making a picture and I did wonder if I would ever take a photograph again. I tried to re-assure myself saying "It's what you do", but no pictures or inspiration came to mind. Happily, I thinking much clearer now, I'm almost positive.
I've started work again, but I've noticed I'm looking for subdued colours to make the most of the soft northern European light. There will be no sun or sky in my photographs for the time being.
