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. 

My Last Shot of 2014

This is literally my last photo taken in 2014. Now I'm sure there could be some symbolism applied to the photo. How the bridge is taking us into the new year where we don't know what to expect, or some other metaphysical mumbo jumbo, but I just liked the leading line of the bridge and the reflections of it and the clouds in the water.

Couple of things my photography friends should make sure to do with the new year: If you use a watermark update that, and if you use IPTC data (metadata that gets stamped on import, for me, in my workflow) make sure you update that to reflect 2015. Photographically for me 2015 will be a step back in terms of projects. After having participated in one 52 week project, then running and off and on participating in two others I'm feeling the need to take a breather. I have signed up to do a photo a month project that focuses on composition. Composition is something I need to work on, and a shot a month is far less time consuming than the shot a week projects. So what will you be doing in 2015?
