C'est Moi
Hello Everyone!

I know - been away for an age. I really do have to get myself sorted out and back on track again.

I took this at Mayburugh Henge near Penrith in Cumbria back at the start of the year - I was looking for answers in the stones, why life was being so difficult and challenging... almost to the point of asking the ancestors - or anyone - for help. Less than a fortnight later my Mum finally lost her long fight with cancer, and everything went dark.

This photograph, I think, captures that feeling of loss and despair which was to come as no real surprise with hindsight, and I like that about it. It was taken with an Olympus OM-D E-M5 and 9-18mm zoom lens at 9mm (equivalent to 18mm on full frame), hand held (upside down and triggered with my thumb).

Great to see you back, Rob. Great self portrait. Love that moody weather. It perfectly reflects your personal mood and feelings as you were dealing with your Mum's illness. Now you can look forward to the two wonderful children and terrific partner in Jenn to share life.

Absolutely Walter - it was one of those almost throw away shots at the time, but since she went it has become a really quite poignient moment. �I like it as a photograph now for that reason, although should probably take a new one soon with out quite so much pain being quite so evident.
