We have not been to the blog since December 1st of last year. Shame on us!
It is not that we are not taking photographs, nor stopped in our testing of new equipment. Sometimes our priorities get a little shook up and we need to stop and re-evaluate.
Some of you know that I went through a life chafing event, health related. Although I am officially rid of the Big C, some of the sequels are still around, in the form of lack of interest and energy, which I try to fight, sometimes with no results.
Yes, we have been active in photography. Yes, we have tried new things, but since I am the main communicator in the couple, the bucket stopped there.
We had big illusions to a trip to Guatemala with Raul Touzon, to document the Holy Week processions and events. An unexpected surgery got on the way and we were left behind and hospitals enriched their bottom line. to be perfectly honest, missing the trip hurt me more than having the surgery.
But I have come to terms with the cards that were dealt, and slowly put the pieces back together.
Since December, we have acquired and enjoyed the Leica monochrome, that has only one channel and shoots only black and white.
Very enjoyable camera, not for all uses, but worth having if you like B&W.
I will ask Alfred to write a small review, he’s more tech oriented than me. In the mean time, just to break the ice, I will include some pics taken after the last December post.
Will try and keep up the Blog, it used to be fun. I will reclaim that fun!!!
Great to be with you guys again!
