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. 

Weekly Photo Projects, Week 1

New Year Sunset
New Sunset
Week One is done and in the books. Since both of my projects were using the same theme (New Year) I was expecting to recycle a photo for both. I kind of did, but not in the way I thought I would. For my +Weekly Photo Project 2013 group I used this 7 shot HDR sunset. You can read about why I chose this shot here (I don't like repeating myself). But I really did like how this shot turned out.

2013 Crashing In
So as far as my shot for my black & white group goes, it should look very familiar. Yes, it was used just three days ago here in color. Since this shot was due Friday I've had some time to look at it some more, and though I generally like the black & white version better than the color version, I don't like the grain I put in it. I should have gone with my first instinct and gone for a clean look. To see what else I had to say about it check out my post here.
