    I made the decision to step away for a while due to lack of freshness. And as a result I have been carrying my Zeiss 35mm RF with me. No pics, but I have it. I have rediscovered an old hobby, astronomy.

    We have all been there.... learning to accept that it is simply part of the process is key. I found fighting these fallow times to be counterproductive. Even the earth takes time off (winter) to rest and renew... and spring is so spectacular.

    Don't despair, this is part and parcel of any creative process.

    Consider what would happen if you tried to shoot through a period when you don't have fresh, creative ideas.... That can be very frustrating, no?

    Consider also the flip side of your malady: photographer-automatons don't have this problem. They simply record everything that goes by and are equally impressed by all of it.

    Why not just leave it for a time. Leave it just as you would leave your home when you go on vacation. And be confident that you will return home soon enough.

    P.S. Recently I blogged here about an experience in search of "freshness"... you might have a look, it might ring a bell.

    A lady at work who I showed the View Camera article to said she had been to the place where your shot was taken, Scott. She used to live nearby, I think.

    I am like a Black Hole. Whatever stuff ( vast quantities) comes in never leaves. I am adicted to photographic gadgets.
