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 35

Week 35: Sunset
Camel Rock at Sunset
The theme this week for +Weekly Photo Project 2013 was Sunrise or Sunset. Having just recently done attempted a sunrise shot that didn't really pay dividends, I thought I'd take it easy on myself and just go for a sunset shot. I take a lot of sunset shots and, as odd as this will sound, I'm bored of them. I wanted to take a shot that didn't make the sun or the sky as the main focus. Of course it's hard to get away from the sky when taking a shot at sunset, but I'm hoping that the light hitting the large rock gets your attention as much as the nice soft colors in the sky.

Week 35: Decay
For my black and white project we had the theme of Decay. I thought for sure I had this planned at the beginning of the week and so procrastinated taking the actual shot. Turns out I really couldn't make the shot work and so I went looking. Found this very weathered anchor  and took shots from different angles and compositions, which drew some looks from others, but finally found a shot I was happy with.
