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. 

Treetops (Photocentric)

In case you missed my earlier post, I'm taking part in a photography project for 2012 over on Google+. Every week there's a new theme and we have some 7 days to plan, take, and if necessary process a shot. For more manageable for me than those 365 projects going on. The fact that there are laid out themes and a group of over 400!! to help motivate me I'm hoping to get through this. So what does that mean for this space? Basically I'll be trying to post a minimum of two photos weekly. Then one from the project and something else either from my archive or from an unrelated shoot.

Today's shot is my first HDR shot of the New Year. The tree tops are a fixture in the backyard, and I took this shot of them on a lark. It originally came out looking very dull, which is fitting since it was a dull day light wise. HDRing it brought out the color of the trees and was a real start contrast from the dull grey of the clouds. Other than a little noise reduction on the under exposed, and the HDR processing itself, I didn't do anything else to the photo.
