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. 

Mausoleum (Photocentric)

Today's posting is a 3 shot HDR of a mausoleum located in a cemetery that I happened to see over the Labor Day weekend. The cemetery itself was located in Ferndale where a lot of the movie Outbreak was filmed. It sits on a plot of land that starts off flat but quickly raises up to take up a hillside. I tried to take shots of the who plot of land, but they didn't really capture the steepness.

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this shot. Initially I put it through Silver Efex which gave it a more Halloween like look to it, but it didn't feel right for a shot taken in the middle of the day. I think a cemetery during the day has a much different feel than at night and the monochrome look didn't look right for a day shot.
