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. 

Week 12 GPlus Project 52

Planes, train, and automobiles. A decent enough movie, if I remember correctly, but was the theme for week 12. I had initially wanted to do the shot literally, but the odds of me being able to get into a position and location where I could shoot a plane, a train, and a car at the same time were very much against me. Also my Photoshop skills are virtually non-existent for that kind of work. So I threw out cars (too easy) and went for planes. Then it rained. And rained.
Ducking raindrops and between systems I was able to sneak out and grab some shots at a local municipal airport. No 747s, but a number of smaller craft that would more easily fit in my camera. Apparently though there are limits to how close I could get to the planes. I shot this plane through a chain link fence. It is a five shot handheld HDR that I finished in Topaz Labs Details to bring out some more details in the plane and the clouds.
