It’s OK

I’ve not taken a lot of photos this year. It’s OK as there have been other things to concentrate on.

I’ve only shot a few rolls of film this year. It’s OK there is a global pandemic right now so I have been thinking about other things.

I think I’ve lost my photography mojo. It’s OK I have been worried about keeping my family and myself safe.

When I pick up my camera I’m lost for inspiration. It’s OK the world and indeed my local area are a lot smaller right now.

I’m not really photographing in the house. It’s OK I am more interested that my kids come home safe and well from school.

Working from home should have given me time to concentrate on photography. It’s OK I have not been working from home, but shielding at home and been lucky enough to still be able to work.

I haven’t written many blogs or produced a zine like I said I would during lockdown. It’s OK, it felt right to set these goals but it became more important to ensure we got a supermarket delivery slot each week.

It’s OK, because I also know the time will come again when I can concentrate on photography. The vaccines are starting to roll out, the days will start getting longer, winter will pass and the sun will shine again.

It’s OK.

  1. Glad I’m not the only one feeling this way. Right before the pandemic hit I bought a Hasselblad 503CX with an 80/2.8, waist level finder, and a couple of late model A12 magazines.

    Although I have since added to that kit, other than a couple of outings I haven’t been motivated to use it. To be clear, it isn’t anything to do with the camera not being fun, it is all about malaise.

    Thanks for writing and sharing this.

  2. Photography has been a lifesaver for me during these turbulent times. It is an excuse to leave the house and a reminder that it’s okay to go outside — as long as I say the heck away from people. That said there was a period of about 2 months when I couldn’t muster the motivation to write a blog post or pick up my camera. And to that I told myself it’s Okay.

    Great post. I hope can get back into the swing of things, but take your time.
