How often do you shoot an image, get back home and load the image onto your screen, and see something you never thought was in the frame when you pressed the shutter.
That’s what happened with this shot taken earlier in the year. And what I spotted back home was the white coat in the shadows on the right edge of the frame. For some reason I immediately thought of the classic film ‘Blow Up’ from the late 1960s starring David Hemmings as a professional photographer who spots what he thinks is a man with a pistol in the background of images from a photoshoot that he processes in his darkroom. I’m sure there was nothing spooky with the ‘white coated’ person but my subconscious mind made a connection.
It’s over three months since I last posted, and those of you who follow me may well have given me up for dead. I’m not dead – as you will observe! It’s just been a rather crazy year and once you get out of the habit of doing something, it can be very difficult to get back into doing it. But here I am, and now I’ve started, I aim to continue.
After surgery earlier this year (for the first time in over 65 years I was the patient rather than the doctor), then three months of chaos in the house thanks to a combination of a leaking pipe and an ant nest (resolved), we finally had something to celebrate. A grandson – Zachary. And he has occupied a lot of our time because he lives not far away from where we live and we just love seeng him regularly and watching his progress.
Now I must catch up on some of your blogs.
