Suspension of photos...for a while...

Flowing around rocks
With current forceful or calm
Being the water

After many months of daily digital photography...daily postings to flickr...routine postings to this blog...I now find myself digital-less.

I ordered a Canon EOS 20D last Tuesday afternoon. Immediately following the confirmation of my order...the shutter button on my Nikon coolpix, just up and stopped responding!! Weird, right?

So...I think, well, no problem, I'll send it in and get it fixed (found out that is WAS indeed fixable) and I will have my Canon soon. The new camera arrived two days later. I started "testing" it...and lo and behold...there are spots in my images!! These are consistent spots from image to image, that can be seen in the light areas of the pictures. ARRRRGGGGHHHHH!!! I called Canon and they ran me through some possible fixes...but to no avail.

What an internal struggle I had with this! Withdrawals? Maybe. But more, I think I had lost some of my internal spirit regarding photography, and was on a "track"...with no stopping to breathe. As soon as I accepted that the universe wanted me to take a break...pack up those digitals and ship them out for service...and just kick back and see for seeing's sake...look for the joy of the moment and not be compelled to record every single thing...work in the garden and be with the plants instead of separated from them with a lens...well, I feel a lot better.

So...it may be while before new pics are posted here. Possibly there will be some scanned prints (YES...back into the darkroom!!). Or perhaps there will be random musings...descriptive essays (in lieu of pics)...creative writing (??!!).

In any case, it seems that to be the water...to flow with the change...is usually the most effective course in life...
