    Chrondomalacia Patella in both knees (its goddamned long, but somehow I'd mastered the spelling of this simple condition 'kneecap misalignment').

    I can't squat down as quickly or get up as quickly like a long time ago before I had my lateral release surgery. So basically I can't do fast shots at obscure angles. Have to squat down r.e.a.l.l.y s.l.o.w like an old man shoot liaoz and den with hands on my knees, s.l.o.w.l.y getup.

    My specialist asked me how old I am and when I told him I'm 26 (when I was diagnosed), he said, "26?! How come your knees look like 70yr old man?!"

    extracted from a story book...

    "Oh, grandmother," she said, "what big ears you have."
    "The better to hear you with, my child," was the reply.
    "But, grandmother, what big eyes you have," she said.
    "The better to see you with, my dear."
    "But, grandmother, what large hands you have."
    "The better to hug you with."
    "Oh, but, grandmother, what a terrible big mouth you have."
    "The better to eat you with."


    time to add another line...


    "Oh, Lotusfairy," DCnA said, "what big nose you have."
    "The better to smell you with, my honey boy."

    After about 8 or 9 good shots I tend to loose focus and my speach gets a bit slurrrry.

    If I then have a good meal with a glass or two of water I am fine for a few more shots before bed
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    Erm me too

    Got CMP on my right knee, can't squat down and stand up suddenly without feeling the pain.

    Also results in the "creaky" bones that have to be occasionally "clicked" back into place

    Rubbing some antiseptic cream on your itchy fingers before touching keyboard will be fine.

    Also keep lens caps clean if you want to wear them.

    i'd recommend he wear glove to take pictures and try to suppress his urge to scratch the focusing ring...

    I have a problem with taking the pictures because my senior keeps making me laugh especially when I go to shoots with him. If I go alone, which is hardly possible, I will think of the stupid things he did. ALL THE SENIOR'S FAULT.
