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. 

Nature Photo Challenge

If you're a photographer chances are you've seen the various 5 day challenges going around the various social media sites. Last year I took part in a number of different short challenges, in between my year long photo project and my own personal photography. They're fun and usually a nice break from the other projects I have going on. This year I've not had much of a desire to take part in even the short five day challenges. Also, thankfully, I've not been called out by many to take part in a challenge. But when +Chuq Von Rospach of, a photographer I admire, and a good all around guy, I felt I should take part. Now there doesn't seem to be any rule stating that photos need to be taken during the 5 day series so since I've been going through my archives I'm going to post never before seen photos, starting with this one.
