Continuing the blog serialisation of my popular X-Pro Series lust/hate/love story:

Part 84: A Fish Out of Water

I really was a bit stuck for something to write about this week…

You could say I’m like a fish out of water, I’ve plenty of ideas for articles, but I’m just not feeling the writing right now.

I’ve had to travel suddenly to the UK.

I’ve been here over a week now

It’s been a surreal groundhog day of doing pretty much exactly the same routine each day.

Yesterday I needed to break the routine.

I need to take a walk, breathe fresh air

I needed to explore where I was. I needed to find shapes and order

So, this week’s post is that day.

A day of trying to find sense in things

I know this house very, very well. But it’s not the same.

An uncomfortable comfort. Too much time in rooms like this

Awkward sculptures huddle in sealed courtyards

Pathways can lead nowhere

Beauty seems somehow not real

We’re all in some way tethered

Some place down below fires burn

I think it’s obvious that there’s more to all of this than I want to write about in a camera website!

I’m sorry for the sombre tone… things aren’t exactly superb at the moment

But things do continue, we overcome, we grow, we expand.

I’m not sure how long I’ll be here, in this place.

But I’ll deal with it as best as I can and one day I look back and remember leaving

I’ll almost certainly be taking a break from the site next week

(Note of 7th Feb 2018: As this is a blog serialisation of my articles, I actually wrote this about 20 weeks ago. I WILL NOT be taking a break next week, I hope… well I’ve not planned to. Originally this was the week my brave father lost his battle with cowardly cancer, hence not really being in the mood to write about cameras etc. I have to say that reader support during that time was truly humbling. Thank you all)

A lot of time and effort goes into this site.. Hopefully it’s helped you? Perhaps you’d consider helping me?

  1. When the feet find a place
    where the heart need not fear,
    the wings of the soul can unfold,
    flying the winds from memory
    over newborn countries unfolding.
