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. 

Fave 5 from 2012 Part 3

With only three Thursdays left in 2012 it's time for part three of my five favorite photos taken by me in 2012. These aren't the blog's most popular photos (which you can see on the right side), but are the photos that I enjoyed taking, working on, and looking at the most. The order picked is random, so today's shot is not the least-favorite or the most favorite shot of 2012.

OK, so I'm late posting this, and I'm not even adding a book to the post this week. I've also not been shooting for the last couple weeks because I've been without a camera and eagerly awaiting a new one. Well the new one arrived Wednesday so I was a little pre-occupied to getting this post off. And I'm purposely leaving out a book review because I'm lazy.

About the shot

This was shot for my Project 52 challenge. Of those shots very few of them made it into my "like" column due to various reasons. The theme for this shot was black & white and I enjoyed finding the church and taking only 3 photos (from different angles) and going with this one. I was really happy with how the whole thing turned out, from the clouds to the church and the surrounding details. As with all my black and white conversion, this started off life as a full color shot which I then took into Silver Efex Pro to tweak the process up some.
