I have such a love and passion for photography, and can be found walking in any given small New Mexico town capturing images, at any given time, I love small mirrorless but will use anything..
Here I am walking around Route 66 in Tucumcari New Mexico.
Anyways, for several years I started having pain and discomfort in my right knee. I finally went to the doctor and was told I have some bad Arthritis in the knee. I received several foam injections which helped greatly but only seemed to last around 6 months. After my last injection wore off my Doctor told me I could break my knee cap at any given time and my next option became total knee replacement. This happened on April 18th, here is a image of me and my fellow photographer buddy and husband prior to being wheeled off for Surgery.
The surgery was performed by a leading local Sports Doctor and was a success, I didn't go under, rather they gave me a shot in the back to cause the nerves not to feel pain or something like that. During the surgery I could hear banging and sawing, it was rather strange..... That same day I was walking in a walker very slowly and bending my new knee.
my 1st PT session which came a week after the surgery, we were given many exercises to do.
My 2nd PT session I was able to ride the bike, my new knee can be seen, much of the purple bruising was healed, the staples gone and I am feeling overall much better, though I still had to deal with that damn walker..
I told Lu I have to shoot, please take me and so I can shoot. So he set up something with the local car clubs for me to get some rolling shots. I sat shotgun in Chantilly Lace as Lu drove and capture many rolling shots for the car club members using my tiny Rx100 mIII, I was so happy, as I got my fix!
It is now my 3rd week from the surgery and I am off the walker, and went to a local car meet to capture some images, I used a tripod and remote trigger for my A7S and A7R, using the Batis and G Master..... I won't stop, I must do what I do, the only thing that will stop me is when my heart stops beating, but even then, I will see if the King of Kings and Lord of Lord's can use a photographer, so I can capture those streets of Gold.
I must do this, it is who I am, my images are my footprints that I leave with the world.
