It started as a lovely day. It was sunny and warm outside, a typical spring day, and i was looking forward to a walk out. It was also my birthday. Everything was going fine until i got up to switch my desktop computer on to access my emails.
PAIN! Lots of it too. I must have twisted as i got up and something somewhere in the lower area of my back did not like it one little bit. All that heavy camera gear i carry and it's an email that puts me out of action! So i ended up spending most of yesterday on my back, barely able to move, thinking 'what a great 37th birthday this is'!
The back is feeling better today. It's sensitive, even painful at times but i can move about. I no longer walk like a cross between John Wayne and Quasimodo but I'll confine myself to easy duties for a few days - just to make sure. Certainly no running, heavy lifting or long car journeys for me this week.
As for photography news, well i edited the first video podcast ready for release next month. It looks pretty good so far. I'm just adding a few finishing touches this week. The website is also undergoing some development to add a few new pages and features. The layout idea for the portfolio has also been finalised. Lots of work to do in the next few weeks.
