Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 

End of the Line (Photocentric)

This is the last shot from my fort posts. Apparently there is a train, or some kind of machine that runs on tracks there. It wasn't out when I was there. I follow a number of photographers and one of them had been focusing on train tracks, so I thought I'd give it a try. After taking a number of forgettable shots from where I was standing I thought I'd try a different perspective.

Putting the camera directly on the track made it more dramatic and really brought out the detail in the track and wood. I like the fresh piece of grass growing directly in front and to the right. I hadn't remembered it being there at first, and thought it would ruin the shot, but I like it. I was originally going to straighten the shot out in Aperture when I was working on it, but I like the skewed point of view.
