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 3

Ice, ice baby
Just one photo this week. Why just one? Did I already fall behind on one of my projects? Did I get thrown out of one of them? Was the other photo so bad I couldn't bring myself to posting it? No, I've not fallen behind, I've not yet been thrown out of one, and the second photo is the same as the first.

The theme for my black and white group was frozen, and with temperatures not really cold enough to freeze things I had to come up with my own shot. This was a simple glass with 3 ice cubes illuminated by a handheld flashlight. I also tried to freeze the action of pouring a liquid into the glass, but it didn't turn out as well. I couldn't make the rum really standout.

The theme for my +Weekly Photo Project 2013 was the rule of thirds, you compose your shot with the subject off to a side, or above or below center. Or all of the above. Since my black and white shot matched the rule, and I really liked it, I just used that shot for this project also.
