2010, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and it's really hard to explain how it feels to be told that you have an incurable, life changing and debilitating disease. I now know that I'm not the only one but at the time, boy, it was very hard. To help cheer me up, my wife bought me a digital camera, a Sony, it came with the added bonus of using the same lens mount as my Minolta. Suddenly I was set free to shoot two or three hundred images a day and not worry about the cost. Phase two began!
