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.

Going through my Aperture library with an eye to finishing panoramas I ran across this four shot Bay Bridge shot. The photo came out pretty good in color, but there were some definite issues with it the background. I liked it well enough while shown at a size less than 100%, but when viewed at 100% there were some problems that I couldn't fix. I quickly took it into Black & White Effects and used their Cool Tone and got this. I instantly liked it. It still doesn't look great at 100%, but I'm happy enough with it.
