I’m having a hard time finding the motivation for the PhD right now. All I want to do is photograph stuff, but I can only lie in bed because of my lumbago. Travelling for four hours to work and back today was not what the doctor ordered.
But hey, instead I got to snazz up my blog (I can do that lying down!). At least I hope it’s an improvement… 🙂 I wanted the new layout and the colours to reflect the feeling of calm that nature gives me. The camera really is a good friend in that it forces me outside my door to chase that elusive evening light.
Some days I stay outside for three hours, which is unheard of for me, but very good for my mental health. I tend to spend most of my time in my head, and I like it there, there are snacks, but too much of a good thing, you know? And looking for subjects to photograph makes me see the world as I want to see it – as a place of wonder and beauty, not always a problem to be solved.
So. Baby steps towards a better place.
