it was a year ago today...

that i had a heart attack, just 3 days before my birthday.

i took this week off from work so i could quietly celebrate having lived another year.
today was a bit emotional for me at times.

i also painted my living room over the past few days. i hate painting and the job i did proves that pretty much.
but i did it, alone, and finished this morning, just about the same time they were hooking me up to a bunch of tubes last year.

i still get the odd email asking me how i'm doing and advising me to stay cool, eat right, listen to the doctors etc.
the support was appreciated when it happened last year and still is appreciated today. this world can be cold and hard at times but some of the people in it are warm and wonderful.

anyway, i just wanted to mark the occasion...

thinking there was a need for a small digital camera without shutter lag in my camera bag, i sold my first little digital and bought another. this one is a small canon a620 and strangely enough, i bought it from the same person who sold me my first.
i quite like it despite having it only for a day or so. i took it out today to breakfast with my saturday morning group and for a walk along whyte avenue and into the farmer's market.

here a few quick snaps...

so far behind...

every time i think about writing something i turn tail and run as i am so far behind here that it's hard to know where to begin.

i have a few photos to post tonight, all taken with my new set up.

i was blessed enough to be given a brand new zeiss ikon camera along with a 35/2 zeiss lens.

this kit so impressed me that i sold off some of my canon rangefinder collection just to buy another new lens for it.
these shots were taken with that new lens, a zm 25/2.8.
