I've been on a bit of a hiatus recently. The main reason for it was a pain in my neck that restricted side to side head movement that I put up with for many months. I had a suspicion as to what brought it on so to put it to the test I pretty much stopped carrying the camera around...which meant I haven't been out much, which means I haven't been making many photos which means I haven't had much to blog about. The few times I have been out with the camera I carried it in my hands instead of around my neck. This is okay for a short while but it does get tiring after awhile and my hand starts cramping. Nor is it very safe. Heaven forbid I drop it because it's not slung around my neck.
So what was the result of not carrying the camera over my shoulder/neck for almost two months? No more pain. It's been completely gone for a few weeks now. Suspicion confirmed. Crud. Now what to do? In the next post I'll explore some options.
