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. 

B-17 Flying Fortress

Continuing from last week's post here is the B-17 Flying Fortress from the Wings of Freedom tour. This is a 5 shot HDR. As a photographer I wish I could tell the people to get out of my shot, but that probably wouldn't go over too well. I occasionally attempt to get rid of them in post processing, but that can be more difficult than it's worth at time. And I think my skills doing that aren't that great. I liked this shot because although it looks to be a very cloudy day the sun was shining down on the plane.

I'm excited for some new filters to come in that I just ordered. An infrared filter and a neutral density filter. The IR filter is supposed to filter out the visible light and let just IR light in. Since most modern cameras have an anti-IR filter long exposures are needed. This should produce some very distinctly different photos. The ND filter lessens the amount of light coming in to help smooth running water. Both should be fun to play with and I expect to be posting my thoughts on these as I start playing with them.
