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 7

Week 7: Abstract
Carpet of the Forest
This week was an all black & white affair; one of necessity and one to cover up bad lighting. Let's start with my black and white group's photo. Our theme was abstract, and this was a challenge for me. I don't like looking for or thinking in the abstract. So I interpreted it as a close up of moss on a tree. I was happy with the outcome and love what Silver Efex 2 can do to a photo. Not my favorite theme or photo, but I think it turned out ok.

Week 7: Shadows
2 Handed Sundail

For the +Weekly Photo Project 2013 our theme was shadows. I had unwittingly taken nearly the exact same shot that I took for the project last year, and so had to scramble a bit at the end to get something. Sadly the lighting didn't really help with the shadows as this was the middle of the day. I liked the incongruity of the very dark sky yet the strong sense of light and a not so interesting shadow of this two handed sundial found on the beach.
