Distracting Myself!

Well around my parts it looks as though they were right in saying that we were in for a hotter than usual summer. As of late it’s been crazy hot with no end in site. All week long the forecast is for hot! hot! hot! with no real end in site. It’s a good thing that we are spending most of our time out at the cottage on the lake. It makes taking the sweltering heat a little easier.

It hasn’t been an easy week though as my pain in the location of my latest surgery has been getting more uncomfortable. Last weeks appointment with the neurosurgeon was cancelled because he had to be in surgery, so I’ll be seeing him this week. I’ve been feeling pretty sore and my pain has been a little harder to manage, but I’m confident that progress is being made. It’s slow but God is leading me through yet another storm. I’m choosing to focus on other things like my photography and not letting the negatives beat me down.

I challenged myself this week and decided try and get some really interesting shots. I wanted to get some shots this week with my macro lens, and here are some of the results. The great thing about taking all of these shots is that I didn’t even have to leave our property when taking them. If you think about it there really are a lot of great pictures just waiting to be taken right outside your back door.

Over the next couple of days I’ll also be adding my shots to my shop at www.etsy.com/shop/rossmccreery, so come on over and check them out along with all the others. I really want to thank all of you who have been supporting me with my photography endeavor. Your comments about my pictures really motivate me, and push me to develop my skills.

Well it’s time to go! It’s hot to be blogging and I’m lacking anything to say at the moment. Sometimes I like to let the pictures do all the talking and today is one of those days!

About Ross

My name is Ross and I want to welcome you to my site. I’m married to an amazing woman who is my best friend, and my soul mate all rolled up into one! I am the father of two very special girls who we adopted from China & Ethiopia. Together we make up one very multicultural family!

In 2006 my life was turned upside down when I was diagnosed with CRPS/RSD. It was the start of a journey I never could have expected, and one that I couldn’t fight without God. CRPS is a chronic pain disease and it started in my left hand. I lost mobility of my hand and started to experience pain unlike I ever could have imagined. Not to long after my left ankle became affected. I spent the better half of about a year and a half not knowing what was going on in my body and traveling from doctor to doctor to find a diagnosis. As time went by I started learning more about CRPS and all its symptoms that it brings with it!

As I started to learn more about CRPS I felt the growing need to share the information I was learning with others and to raise more awareness. As well I want this to be a place where we can connect and support one another. So I would encourage you to contact me if you want.
