I tried painting . . . "forget it".
Snowblowing the driveway is my one outdoor task in winter.
Comes December, remind me . . . . "Winter's Blues" . . .
Dave and Paul,
Not sure if you have followed other threads, but I bought a M9M and will face a very steep learning curve exploring digital for the first time.
Also began shooting more and developing less. At this point I have about 80 rolls of film in the fridge that need development.
I have thousands or perhaps tens of thousands of images to edit through over the winter, and this is going to be a major huge task.
I have had a very disrupted life so not shooting for a winter is really no hardship. I still strongly identify myself as a photographer, and I am more passionate as ever.
One great thing about my health crisis is that I know that I have the love, support and understanding I need to get through this time.
At this point its still early, and only last week I went for a test to confirm the diagnoses of Mixed type 2 Cryoglobulenemia. If the diagnosis is validated at this point all is required is careful monitoring because other than the bluing of my hands and exposed skin due to blood circulation loss I have no adverse symptoms, and know that this only happens in the cold. These "Blue Attacks" could be due to the Cold Aglutinin Disease that already has been confirmed over 3 years ago.
