Rain; I prefer "bad" weather for pictures now. Sun's so predictable and commercial... goodness, sounds like treason.

Exactly the same here. Fortunately, circumnavigating the terrace around obstacles gives me about 26 steps, depending on energy/temperature of the day.

I always do an hour at a stretch - as I did for years before Corinna due to cardiologist advice. I now prefer doing this exercise at home because I can do it listening to music and having a drink whenever the need arises. I alternate fifteen minutes in each direction to preserve sanity. Some days I walk for two hours non-stop, which surprises me too.

My usual time is straight after lunch, but despite the helpful toldos, the heat is starting to be too much for exercise, and I guess I'll have to alter my schedule and begin walking at about seven in the evening instead. Which is a shame, because I like watching the debates at 19:15 on france24.com and the weekly review at that time on Fridays. They both continue until 20:00. It's also peak mosquito time.

It must be a nightmare inside a tiny apartment, though. If you have a large lawn, don't use it: when I lived in Scotland we were very close to a park, and I'd walk our dog there twice a day throwing her sticks etc. and I realised that I had created a track several hundered yards long from walking so much in the same pattern in the same area! Parkies' best friend. Not!

Yes, it's tiny too… I couldn't buy an exercise bike on the web, (I have it in Lecco, but  I'm living in Sondrio since  the beginn of march). Last Saturday I did my walk from 10.52pm until 23.56 pm. Although I was wearing silent shoes, at 23.25 pm my neighbor downstairs knocked on my door. I didn't open. On Monday, when I went out to buy something to eat, I found a violent message about my lack of civility and so on...

I'm in love with the first shot… but the second, with the very subtle pastels of the flower is also fantastic.
It was a good first walk outside and with results like these, you can be relieved and satisfied.

Thanks Francois, during the shots of the Gentiana acaulis, I heard for some minutes dull noises, only at the end I realized that stones were falling  on the  track  at a distance of twenty meters from me. But the fall was ceasing,  so I continued to shoot and the last photos were really the best.

Do you live near the Piazza Garibaldi?

Peter


I live not far from Piazza Garibaldi, in Lungomallero Diaz, along the Mallero which is  a mountain creek. Do you know Sondrio?

I was there ten years ago, passing thru. My wife and I stopped for quick bite. I have no idea the name of the small ristorante. We very much enjoyed our meal and went happily on our way.

Looking at what passes for a lawn, this morning, wondering when/if the gardener will come back after Corinna goes away. This caught my eye; on the 2.8/180mm Nikkor wide open:

The pandemic seems to be good for your creativity, Rob.
Keep it up!

How unkind! Keeping it up long enough to be worth the effort is often, but not always (now I sound like Leiter!), one of the collateral damage effects of heart problems. Anyway, by now, it's academic. Which reminds me: sixty years to the day of my nuptials.

I had to dress like a doorman at the Ritz, so in silent revenge, I have espoused the clobber of the slob ever since. Long live Levi! Can't remember when I last ironed a T-shirt - or anything else, for that matter.

Rob,

Photographing whatever moves you is a much better use of your time than ironing tee shirts.

Rob,

In my first studio I used to have an antique gold frame for paintings. As I didn't have or want paintings there, I took one of those very realistic plastic fried eggs that were around in the 60s - obviously not for eating - and framed that. I called it Motherhood. I thought that was very significant and loaded with meaning. Nobody thought it funny or asked me what it was supposed to be about. Maybe they were being super-cool. Or just polite.

Nah, not even of the studio itself. Just as I have almost no pix of the family and even fewer from my fashion years. At least with the fashion and advertising stuff, I tried to sell off to the clients what negs and trannies I could before I left Britain, but what nobody felt they wanted to preserve for posterity - then neither did I, so I destroyed it. Today, of course, with photography being an art, it's obvious we were all crazy back then to take it for granted and of no value past publication date. Websites? What were they - spider infestations?

Of course, had I remained in Britain, there would have been no need to get rid of anything. But then I wouldn't have ended up being me, if you see what I think I mean; I'd still have been him.

I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes it would be nice to be able to rewind and edit the earlier life a bit...

Especially if we could know then what we know now.
