A recent encounter with HEALTH issues presented itself. Sharing personal things like this is not normal but I was inspired regarding SOOC photography. At some point in life we all face health issues. Being the consummate photographer I took along the iPod and captured some SOOC images.

Just because one has lots of editing tools available doesn’t mean one HAS to use them. Simplify life, I think, and enjoy the moment more … Stop by her blog – she has loads of terrific images! http://gerberbaby1.wordpress.com/2012/01/14/theme-dusk/. Thanks KarenAnn for the inspiration! SOOC’s are worthy because THEY ARE THE MOMENT. Yes, it’s true I do a lot of post image editing that’s because it it my goal to do well with that part of photography.
What does a Hot Air Ballon have to do with HEALTH? Nothing. However, it was a sight on the ride to the appointment. The multiple reflections of the hot air balloon in the window of the van were post snap icing – I hadn’t noticed them because I was focused on the balloon itself at the time the photo was taken.
The waiting room is arranged to be soothing. Wonder what the receptionists thought as I stood snapping pics of the fish in the tank.
Second thoughts about this appointment are beginning to raise the “fight or flight” adrenalin seeing the bag of saline that will be used after sedation is administered. Having heart monitor and blood pressure monitors attached are not really all that comforting but a good measure to be employed.
Wow, we’re done already! Boy what was all the fuss about. (No time for moisturizing this morning; they actually expected me to be there by 8 am.)
Being the consummate photographer capturing the event was second nature. I did share with the doctor and his assistant that I was a blogger and they indulged my snap, snap, snap without question. Thank You Dr. Neal !
The camera did turn in the direction of the patient but, there is not a chance that image will be, lol!
