Title • keep out #5

This was taken at the same time as keep out #4 but I didn't put it up at the time as i) it's not as good, and ii) three 'keep out' shots in a row seemed a bit excessive.

On another matter: I may not be posting for a while as Libby, my wife, went into hospital this afternoon. At this stage we're not too sure what the problem is, and all being well she'll be home either later tonight or tomorrow (kicking my arse for talking about it on chromasia), but I suspect I'm not going to have the time or the inclination to take many photographs for at least a few days.

Update: just a quick update, as of the early hours of Monday morning, to let you know that Libby is still in hospital. She did come home earlier today, but ended up going back in again this evening. I'll keep you posted. In the meanwhile, thanks for all your kind words and thoughts: they're much appreciated, by both of us.

Update #2: well, still no new pictures, but Libby's home again. The reason I've been reluctant to say anything much is that it did look as though things might be pretty serious. The differential diagnosis was pleurisy or a pulmonary embolism, the first of which is painfully unpleasant, the other potentially lethal. Anyway, libby had a scan today which pretty much ruled out a pulmonary embolism, and she's had various other tests which didn't indicate any other life-threatening problems, so she's back at home. She's not feeling great, and the rest of us are pretty spaced out too, but at least there's now a clearly defined light at the end of what was starting to look like an impossibly long tunnel.

Fairly soon, when Libby's feeling a bit better, I'll get to around to shooting and posting some new material, but don't expect anything much until the end of the week at the earliest. I'm at home for at least the next few days helping out, and will have to catch up with work related stuff after that, but all being well I'll manage some photography over the weekend.

Once again, many thanks for all your kind words and thoughts - they're very much appreciated.
