All photos taken on July 14th, 21st, and 23rd with E-M1 mk2 and 12-100mm F4 with B+W F-Pro MRC polarizer. Processed in Capture Pro One 20.

As if this pandemic wasn't bad enough, I also somehow broke my left shoulder while I was sleeping last month, and it happened again 3 weeks later. I didn't even realize it was broken, I just felt extreme pain when I woke, and when it happened the second time that's when I decided to go to the hospital and they told me. These photos are me trying to take things easy after I realized my shoulder was broken, and maybe make my mom happy as well. I cannot operate a tripod in this condition so good thing this new camera has both IBIS and OIS, unlike my previous camera, the C-7070WZ, which has neither.

I never photographed wildlife before because the C-7070 was way too slow. It wasn't in my plan, but the limited experience I got here I found quite enjoyable. I am looking forward to the upcoming 200mm macro, for sure.

Sorry to hear about your shoulder.

I've never broken one, but have had problems with frozen shoulder syndrome since 2012, and now have osteoarthritis in both. Not fun!
Thank you. As annoying as it is to have a broken shoulder for no reason, and it is only for a couple of months, not several years so I shouldn't complain. And of course going to the hospital I see all sorts of things much worse than what I have. And there's also the hospital workers on the front lines against COVID-19 too.

Sorry to hear about your shoulder too. To deal with chronic conditions like that must be difficult. I hope you are able to find ways to deal with them. My shoulder should be fully healed in 1-2 weeks so I'll be okay. I'm just a bit paranoid, being more careful these days, maybe needlessly careful, especially the way I sleep and wash my back. I also can't help but wonder if the weight of this new camera contributed as well considering that's the shoulder I always carry the camera bag on.

Yeah, no kidding. I got an MRI and everything, but they couldn't find anything. But maybe it is better that they couldn't. I must have done something really stupid. Too much strain on shoulder, or bad diet, or not enough sunlight or something. I just to try to be less stupid and more careful from now on.

Mine are buggered from age, a lifetime of minor abuse and osteoarthritis. I expect to have problems, as I have with my lumbar facet joints, elbows, wrists and hands. Lesser problems elsewhere.

Which part of your shoulder broke?

Have you had a bone density scan?

Shoulders should not just break for no reason. I think you should pursue this until you get a satisfactory answer.

Just trying to help. Please tell me to bugger off if you feel that I am being too nosey :).

Lol, maybe a bit too nosey, and off-topic. But I appreciate the concern and advice. I would never tell you to "bugger off" anyways. People in Canada don't really say that, I don't think.

It was left scapula that broke. No bone density scan yet. I am not sure I should push this matter too much during the pandemic. Or maybe it is kinda embarrassing to talk about, even with the mask on and I don't have to show my face. The doctor is a specialist about broken bones and he couldn't understand it either, so it could be very hard to get answers either way.

Good luck with your investigations. I do urge you to pursue it, as it could be a precursor to an avoidable and more serious issue as you get older.

I always check in my dignity along with my valuables when I go into hospital - an all too frequent occurrence at my age.

Here in Oz, we don't tell people to 'bugger off' either. Well, not generally ;).

However, it is a common question to ask of another, rather than saying to another :rofl: . The object being to ascertain if one has overstepped the mark.

I understand about wanting to avoid hospitals ATM. My 6 monthly visit to my cardiologist involves me manually uploading my pacemaker's bedside monitor data, and him ringing me about it, rather than me fronting up at a major hospital as I normally do.
