Heck no! I try to print in the cold months and let the film flow in the summer! Having a ball round here! Messing around here there to keep it fresh too (ie the Ming-Rider-Rodinal-Salt-Stand-paradox-experiment). Keep up the great art John, always a pleasure.
Yes. A lot. Taking a 3-month (winter) break from it, resuming travel and photography in the Spring.
Then the circus starts again from late spring all the way to autumn in 2014 (vetting, printing, framing...).
Yea a bit, the work grind and the heat haven't helped either. Id like to travel a bit, but its pretty hard to find the time and the money for it. The work route, and nearby wanderings have left me in a rut, I'm hoping camping later this summer and a road trip somewhere might give me a good kick to get me going again.
It ebbs and flows each day but I wouldn't say I have slowed down. It is a rare day where I haven't shot some film somewhere. But I have noticed this year that I am shooting far more 35mm, and far less medium format.
I live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world; the photographic possibilities here are virtually boundless. While my shooting ventures do tend to drop off during the rainy season, I do shoot year-round.
Some Nikons (F6, F5x2, F3P, F3HP, F2ASx4, F2A, F2 and a D800), with Ai/Ais Nikkors ranging from 15mm to 600mm; Leicas (M6X2), with Leitz glass from 28 to 90mm and a pair of Hasselblads (500c/ms), with Zeiss glass from 50 to 250mm. A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.
