Sereno del Norte - 30 years of work

By annettep38  
sorry, I haven't been here for ages. My life sortof fell apart in August, I got robbed, lost most of my camera gear, my significant other left me, had to replace all the tools he took and so on. Well at last there is a steady stream of clients, I work hard and a lot of it happens right here.

This is my friend Rafa's garage where we do lots of big and interesting jobs together, I now only do the very modern and electrical or small and boring ones in my own little garage.

Sorry I haven't been keeping up with what has been happening - how resourceful you are
to pick yourself up and carry on with all that has happened.
So glad you have your mechanical skills to stand you in good stead.

This is also my interest apart from photography. I used to sit hours in a local garrage during school days, when petol cars & trucks were in use . There were hardly any diesel engine, plying on highways during 1950/60s.

Wonderful to see you back in EPZ Annete... I am sorry to hear you have been in troubled waters, and I am feeling great admiration to see you are turning around and fighting forward. Good on you Girl!
As for the loss of your photographic equipment in my Country we say... "We loose the rings but we keep the fingers" !!! I have just damaged my SLR in my last trip... Now I use my little Lumix or my mobile until I can afford to get another decent SLR... So hey? I hope 2017 brings you great progress, peace and joy.
