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 33

Week 33: Long Exposure
Through the Archway
For +Project 52 B&W our theme was Long Exposure. This shot came to me by accident. I had originally meant for it to be a super color sunset shot (see this post), but that just wasn't happening. So I regrouped and gave it a black and white treatment. I'm quite happy with how the water turned out; enough blurring to give a sense of movement but still nicely defined.

Week 33: Textures
Growth on a Rock
This is one of those photos that satisfies the theme but not much else. Texture was the theme for +Weekly Photo Project 2013. As I mentioned in my G+ post that went with the photo, I feel like I should caption this with, "I woke up at 5am on a Sunday for good sunrise photos and all I got was this stupid rock". Well I got this rock and my disappearing profile photo, so not a complete loss?
