Injuries are inevitable. Days spent playing in the mountains are bound to take you out once in a while. What you end up doing with your down time can make it a blessing in disguise or a curse. Have a few extra beers or work on previously shelved projects. Luckily for my website, I had a month off work from a lacerated backside from a skiing incident.
Days spent couch bound flew by as I sorted photos and rediscovered old forgotten images. Page by page I finally got my site live. Productivity helps the time fly by.
Another thing happens when you are confined to a small house and limited activity. You start to notice how the light crosses the room, how shadows are cast. You begin to get inspired despite your confinement.
Much of my time was spent with my new dog, Saoirse (that's Seer-sha for those not familiar with the Irish tongue). Her pure black fur has made compelling photos elusive. Her character and expression unremarkable in the dulled indoor light. But the other day, the highlights and shadows creeping throughout our one-hundred year old home provided. Saoirse could be captured on camera.
