I admire your ethos Larry. I go through quite a few phases where i won't pick up my still cameras for months at a time. Sometimes it's due to work pressures and running the business etc. More often than not it's due to tiredness and, as you put it, no ability to get enthused. We're in the middle of selling a house, and rearranging finances and whatnot. Taking stills is the last thing on my mind.

I hope that situation will change in time, but for now it's the photo-doldrums.
