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 16

Week 16: Technology
Searching for aliens? No, searching for something to watch on TV
It's Monday and that means another recap. For +Weekly Photo Project 2013 our theme was technology.  There's not much to this shot, and I wouldn't place it high on my favorite lists. The one thing I will say about it is that flip-out and rotate touch screen made this a much easier shot to take. This was held as high up as I could reach, then when I thought I had the shot I wanted I just tapped the screen for the shot. Not much in the way of processing either. I wanted to emphasize the dirtiness of the dishes so took the shot into Topaz Labs Detail. All in all a boring shot.

Week 16: Fade
Foggy Lane
For +Weekly Photo Project 2013 our theme was the vague sounding fade. To get the shot I wanted I ended up having to go to the archive to pull something out, and even that wasn't good enough. Originally this shot (in color) had hints of fog in it. I need to figure out how to better take photos of fog. Longer shutter speed? Shorter? Anyway, I needed to help the fog out. I used Topaz Labs Lens Effects which was able to add some fog to bolster my fog up and have the street almost fade out.
