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 50

Week 50: Bokeh
Santa Bomb
Wow! Only 2 more assignments left! This week was bokeh. The effect is most noticeable in the lights, the scary dude on the left is Santa (believe it or not) and was used as a focus point for the camera. I liked the point of view of this shot, which was basically from ground level looking up.

Week 50: Street Photography
San Francisco
After spending an inordinate amount of time trying to make a bad shot into a good one (you'd think I'd have learned that lesson by now) I went back to the archives. Market Street in San Francisco from Justin Herman Plaza. I really like the sharpness of this photo and the chance I got to play with the Panasonic 20mm F1.7 lens. It's a great little lens, emphasis on little because it's a pancake lens. The only downside to this and the new mark II version is that autofocus is slow.
