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 24

Week 24: Architecture
The Bay Bridge
Week 24. Nearly at the halfway point. For +Weekly Photo Project 2013 our theme was architecture. I reworked an earlier shot to tame some colors that were getting out of hand and work on it more subtly. Topaz Labs Clarity plug-in is quickly becoming a favorite of mine for it's remarkably light touch, yet great results. I really like this version of this photo a lot more than the original.

Week 24: Get Low
Dog's Eye View
Over at +Project 52 B&W our theme was get low. I ended up inverting my tripod, a very cool function, I might add, and shooting across the lawn to a flowerbed and fence. Not terribly imaginative, but it worked.
