In retrospect, it was a very interesting time. If only it weren’t for the itching, the swelling and the incredible pain. To keep distracted, I began work on a photograph of an antique printing press that required isolation. At the time, I didn’t know certain shortcuts I could have taken in PhotoShop. This photo took an entire week to process, given my condition. I was still having to go over to the extended family’s house to watch over a disabled family member, shingles or no shingles.
It is one of my best-selling photos at iStock.
