For most of this year, I haven’t been able to do photography and I’m really missing it. Photography is something I have loved for such a long time and it’s so hard to not be able to do it. My arms are just too weak to hold my camera up, it’s too heavy.
Believe it or not, this photo is of me, taken around this time last year. I was in Lyme Regis and got up (relatively) early to walk down to the beach to take some sunrise photos. As much as I hated being up early, I couldn’t wait to be by the sea with no one else there. Okay, so it was really cold and a metal camera didn’t help warm up my hands, but it looks like a different world when there’s nobody around. It’s like a dream, except it wasn’t it was real. I can’t even imagine being able to do anything like this anymore. My legs would give up on me a few steps out the house and there’s no way I could wear a coat, my skin’s just too sensitive.
I hope that I can go and take some more photos soon. I’m really missing my photography. I want to experience the magical world of frosty early mornings and feel the weight of my camera and think, just for a second, that there is nothing more perfect than this.
