I have been absent from DA for some time but will be coming back more often now.
My wife Virgine (V in my gallery) has been on dialysis every other day for over fifteen years, and had received previously two kidney transplants which failed.
Dialysis is like a ball and chain, you cannot live without it, and it takes away half of your life.
We had come to believe that there was no alternative since she has a genetic disorder which would always cause rejection.
Recent medical discoveries have resulted in a treatment suitable for her disorder.
Two weeks ago she received a third transplant, (imagine five kidneys in one body) which is working!
Still working mostly in France at the moment, which is fine because it's a great place to work. I chose to work with ships because that keeps me close to the seaside - so I suppose I'm a happy chappy really.
Friday I shall take as holiday, since I'll be shooting the rehearsals for a Ballet presentation nearby. - rehearsals are best because you can work closer and ask for repeat shots (sometimes).
Watch this space for sample shots this weekend.
