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 5

Week 5: Color without color
This week I'm happy to be happy with one of my photos, which is better than I thought I'd be. For the black & white group the theme was the very new agey sounding "color without color". So I took the iconic Coke can and shot that. Everyone should know the Coke can is red. For this shot, and continuing my sub-theme of non-compliance, I very lightly brought some red back into the first can. I found this to be harder to do than I imagined. It's more noticeable if you view the photo full screen.

Week 5: Eyes
I See All
For my own +Weekly Photo Project 2013 we had the theme of "eyes". Nothing went right for me shooting wise for this. I wanted to take a shot of an animal's eye, but not owning one that would allow for me to get up close and personal with it made that hard. So, after much frustration, and annoyance, I got this, the eye to my MacBook Pro. I settled on this shot mainly for one reason, I needed to be done with the theme so I could sit back and enjoy the Superbowl, which should be getting underway here in 45 minutes or so. My hope is that this is my worst shot for the year because I'm really disappointed in it and myself.
