I've been quiet for a while

I've been quiet for a while

I’ve been a bit quiet from social media and blogging for a while.

There are several reasons for this, but the main reason being that I seem to be incredibly time poor at the moment!

I have been out with my camera a few times and captured some lovely images that I am so pleased with (including some experimental shots around the Scarborough coastline), but fitting in time to blog and up-date my social media has been really difficult.

It’s been a while hasn’t it!

After fracturing the back of my heel towards the end of July, I though it was probably best to have a few weeks off in August to completely rest up and allow my foot to heal. And I’m please to say that I’m now OFF MY CRUTCHES!

So, as I'm sure you're probably aware, I'm getting around on crutches at the moment. And I'm really not enjoying it!

Looking at the positives, I have had a really welcome chance to reflect and plan. I've up-dated my website, added a new page and made a few changes to my Etsy shop. I've also written a few new articles and am really excited about the way I'm hoping to develop this blog.

Some of you might have noticed that I've been a bit absent from social media recently. My blog has been quiet, my Instagram feed has not changed in weeks and I haven't posted a video to YouTube in what seems like ages.

Unfortunately, I've injured my foot and have been forced to use crutches to get around and rest and ice my foot as much as possible. I haven't even been able to get into my office (which is in my attic) as I haven't been able to climb the ladder.

Top 5 Tips and Tricks for Beating Creative Block

I always struggle with creative block over the first couple of months of the year. Whether it's a case of Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.), or just that I miss the sunlight and the warmth, I find the long nights and brief days of Northern Britain hard going. And it's a shame really, because January and February are some of the best months for photography.
