Hi all. Before I go into the cranberry bog photographs, I'll take a moment to update you on the progress of my injuries. It's been 46 days (but who's counting) since the accident. I went to have x rays taken at the orthopedic Dr this week and I'm healing well. I finally got the ok to do some weight bearing in the air cast walking boot that I'm in. I will start going out for PT this week which I'm happy about. The Dr said it will be two more months before I'll be able to drive and resume normal activities. I'm trying to be positive and reminding myself I should be healed just in time for Spring......a time for new beginnings!
I haven't picked up my camera since November 28th.......a very long time for me. It's strange to say, but I actually haven't even had the urge to take any photos. Normally my shutter finger would be very itchy to get out there shooting. I'm sure once I'm able to be mobile I'll be itching to get back out with my camera. For now, I'm just healing, reading, watching tv and making plans for when I'm healed and can safely see all of my friends and loved ones. Speaking of that, I do have some good news to share. Although I'm out on a medical leave of absence from work, I was able to go in to the hospital in my wheel chair to get both of the covid vaccines. I just got the second one this week. With my medical history and being high risk, it is a HUGE weight lifted off of my shoulders and I'm so thankful that I have been vaccinated.
Now on to some New England photography! I actually have some photos that I took this past Fall that never made it to the blog so I'm going to start sharing them. In mid October I was invited to go to one of the local cranberry bogs here on the South Shore of MA to take photos of the cranberry harvest. We have many cranberry bogs in this area, and it's always a treat to see the bogs being harvested each Fall.
