Yes, a bit of deja vu considering the changes you also experienced at the beginning of last year. Is it any easier the second time around? Has anyone asked you why you are taking pics of seemingly inconsequential subjects? I used to sometimes feel a little surreptious taking pics for my visual blog.
Good to hear you've started and hope things are becoming nicely familiar. I think they'll get used to your photography pretty quickly, and it may even become part of a retirement speech many years from now.
