In a Fog

Hi again everyone! Today was just one of those days where you never stop, and by the end of the day your left with nothing in the tank! Actually it’s been a pretty busy weekend and as is so often the case your left wondering where it went. It just seemed to fly and just like that it’s over. It was a day where one parent went one direction with one child, and another parent went the opposite direction with another. On top of that we had to fit in church and one other party!

I still don’t know what’s going on in regards to why I’m feeling the way I do. I’ve had blood work done and am awaiting the results, so hopefully I’ll get some answers in the next couple of days. In the meantime I’ve been trying to work on some of my pictures to distract myself from the extra pain that I’ve been feeling. So throughout the post you’ll see the pictures I got earlier in the week.

Last week wasn’t easy and I’m hoping and praying that next week is much improved. At the moment though I’ve been having all sorts of trouble with clarity in my head. Sometimes I wonder which is worse trying to deal with clarity, or trying to deal with the pain.

It’s only fitting that I’m posting these photos because they are ones I took during a heavy fog earlier in the week. In a way they really speaks to the way that I’m feeling at the moment! Somehow when I’m out getting lost in something that I love to do it makes things a little easier to manage when I’m having a hard time. Even though the weather has been awful with snow, freezing rain, and fog it’s presented lots of opportunity to get some great pictures.

Last week I was able to get out for a morning of just me and the camera which is hard to do when you are raising two young girls. Something happens when I get that camera in my hands, all my health issues get put to the back burner to an extent and I feel alive! It’s really hard to put the camera down after a shoot.

Today I’m going to keep things short because I just don’t have it in me to post like I normally would. My energy is down and my pain is up, not a great combination! So my big plan is to take it easy and try and let my nervous system calm down a bit. I’ll talk to you soon. Enjoy the pictures! You can also find more on my site at .





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 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.

    Just my opinion Ross, but I think these are truly some of your very best. Each one is simply breathtaking, and I just love the wonderful soft colors.

    I truly hope and pray that you are feeling at the very least, a little better soon.

    These pictures are truly phenomenal!! I took extra time to linger at each one and study what made them so beautiful. I love everything about them…the fog, the position of the trees, the landscape. Well done! I think they are my new favorites of yours to date!! So glad that you have photography as an outlet and a small little retreat amidst all the pain that you face. I think my husband would say that fishing used to be that outlet for him but, it doesn’t distract him as well as it used to. I also think that I understand the fog that you speak of…I think to an extent anyways and I know my husband would understand. I know that what you battle everyday must be so taxing and mentally distracting but, you must know that your optimism in the face of all that you go through shines a bright light. I’m praying that the Lord gives you a great deal of relief from the pain you have been having lately and praying that you get a clearing in the fog in Jesus name.

    I have to agree with Lisa. These shots are so beautiful and some of your best!!
    I understand what you mean about photography taking your mind of things. That’s why I took it up in the first place just over 12 months ago.
