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. 

2 for Week 21 GPlus Project 52

Rewind back to the end of 2011. Google+ was still fresh and new and I came across a post asking if there'd be any interest in making a group of photographers who were intimidated by doing a 365 project but could probably handle a 52 shot project. Probably to the surprise of Giuseppe Basile there were a lot of people interested. And so a list of themes were made, and subsequently copied into Evernote for future reference.

Fast forward to today and I see that the information I had for this week was outdated. Back in 2011 week 21 had a theme of flower. And having checked my Evernotes I dutifully shot a flower. Then as I was searching the #2012Project 52 tag on G+ I realized there were a bunch of white photos, with a flower or two mixed in. A quick look at the group page and sure enough there had been a change in theme. Week 21 was now "Mostly white". Some quick thinking, and a push up on the EV dial brought me the second shot. So, it a 2 shot Monday.
