It has been over a year since my last blog, Photography as an Outlet.
Unfortunately, life has continued to send curveballs my way with the chronic conditions that I struggle with. I, of course, did not expect to still be bed-bound after two years and eight months, and to say it has taken its toll is quite an understatement.
Nonetheless, I would say that I am more passionate about the world of photography now than I was before becoming completely bed-bound. Of course, I have been creating a lot fewer images, but now, more than ever, I do not take one single frame for granted. It truly is such a blessing to have a passion that I am wholly dedicated to pursuing in life. But, during this time, I have learnt an awful lot of life lessons and also in regards to my photography when looking back at previous work.
Despite all of the hurdles that have occurred the past few years with various health issues popping up, that spark inside me to create (thankfully) has not withered.
Hence, I continue with the ongoing project, ‘Process of Time; Same view, different perspective’, to show the same view I have from my bed, but a perspective that has changed due to the camera in my hands. It also demonstrates the restrictions that I have capturing images and being held back by my circumstances.
Due to those extreme restrictions, it will be a tremendous occasion when I am at long last able to access a wheelchair and see the outside world with a new sense of wonder! It is something that cannot come soon enough.
