It’s this time again…

Olympus 35DC, Fomapan 200

And I’m not going to talk about the holiday season, sorry.

It’s been a hard month, a hard year. If you ever read my posts past the photos you might know that almost three years ago I moved country. We’ve lived at one place since then until this December when we moved house.

It’s not nearly as stressful as starting a new life in a new country of course, but it’s not a Sunday parade either.

Needless to say that because of all this turmoil my photo activity has suffered greatly. Almost no new frames shot on film, very few pictures done with the phone, not mentioning social activity – this is the first post in a long time.

It’s all quite understandable and I’m not complaining. There’s another thing that bothers me.

With all this stress accumulated lately, I find it really hard to take pictures. I mean, what could be more inspiring than a new place to shoot, right? Well, one could say, but here I am, struggling to see anything worth photographing around. And what is even more frustrating that I’m living in a town now, which should give me a creative boost for new street pics.

And yet, it doesn’t seem to work this way.

I was wondering: what can I do to rekindle my street photo spark and feel the taste of shooting streets again?

How do you prefer to deal with such blackouts caused by stress and troubles in life?
