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. 

Half Moon Bay Revisited (Photocentric)

I'm still enjoying playing around with Silver Efex Pro 2, so this weeks image is one that's already been shown on the blog, just black and white-ified. I originally shot the image of a piece of the Half Moon Bay coast to be an HDR shot, and is one of my favorites still, but I thought I'd see what putting it in black & white would do.

One of the really powerful and fun features of SEP is their Control Points which really let you fine tune an image. One of the options in them is to bring the original color back out. So I decided to bring out the orange color in the ground cover that really surprised me in the HDR version of the shot, as it didn't really show up that well in the regular version of it.
