autumn comes too soon…

And I lost three weeks of August lying on a sofa, monitoring the first signs of my physical dissolution... Now plants have neither flowers nor fruits anymore.

Lucky you: my time doing that has almost ended as I see the process to its completion!

But half of the problem is the goddam sofa itself. During the past four or five days of sciatica - the longest attack yet - I have made myself super comfortable on sofa or at computer chair, forgotten the present reality until, bored with the faux, I try to get up at which moment sofa and/or chair scream at me not to move an inch, or pay for it in spades!

Saul Leiter made a big thing out of person disintegration; every day I feel a greater bond.

Just in case you think I've gone all colourful... café at the Place Carnot market on a Friday evening.

Nice; do I recognize the long-haired girl in the foreground?

I've spent the last six weeks or so unable to play guitar due to a chronic right wrist injury. I somehow strained a tendon or ligament in my sleep, causing muscle tissue to swell up, causing some nerve impingement. It gets mostly better, then I do something stupid like lifting a heavy object with my right hand/arm and it starts all over.  :-\  At least I can operate a camera without discomfort…

Blame it on Balzac's coffee: you've got to take them face-on, close up; with a 28mm on FF. Think William Klein. Think what Capa said about distance.

P.S. I've only done it once - don't expect streams of bravery from me!

You have my sympathy; my sciatica has given me a great excuse stopped me from taking pictures outwith the house; I suppose I shall have to overcome that, because if I don't quite soon, I'll forget what little PS stuff I learned. However, combined with my eye problems, photography has become a bit easier. Yes, easier, because the last few shots I made were with one or the other of my only two af optics. I don't use the others much, not only beause they are manual - and probably nicer than the af ones - but because I'm into wide open (or thereabouts) pix these past few months and trying to do that wih poor vision ain't too successful at the best of times - well, without a split-image screen, that it.

OT, but I've spent a few evenings watching back numbers of the French cop drama: Engrenages (Spirals). It's quite a raw series, and if it represents Paris, then glad to be living in a hick town on an island in the Med!  However, it confirmed a growing suspicion I have held for a while: the French can't speak French. The only people who speak French properly are British school marms and fellow students of the day. We understood one another perfectly. It must be something to do with the Common Market.

Thank goodness for subtitles.

Graeme, you can most certainly pencil in mine, too.

She looks to be perfect lens fodder, the raw material for a plethora of dreams in camera...
