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 20

Week 20: Contrasting Colors
The SF Night Sky
I haven't posted photos for my projects for the last couple weeks mainly because they've not been photos I enjoyed taking, never mind looking at. But these I enjoyed. I love San Francisco. It has some great photo opportunities day or night, but I really liked my night shots. The theme for +Weekly Photo Project 2013 was Contrasting Colors, and I think we have that covered.

Week 20: Framed
Hemmed In SF
For my black and white group our theme was Framed. I chose this street shot originally for it's close in, hemmed in, feeling, that only seems to get worse as you head down the hill. Then someone pointed out all the "frames" on the buildings. That works too. As is my usual I did the conversion in Silver Efex Pro 2 and in an unlike me decision, put more grain into the picture. I think I wanted to give it a "street" or "edgy" look to it. I don't think I pulled it off.
