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. 

The Look

Is she Looking at me?
Another street photography shot. I've already mentioned that I'm not very comfortable with shooting random people on the street, so this was an exercise to get over that. It didn't work. With this shot I was zoomed in all the way so I could be as far away as possible from my subject. The timing worked out great that I caught her looking back over her shoulder, making this a far more interesting shot, but I immediately felt uncomfortable having taken the photo.

In terms of photo processing I elected to go with a mostly black and white look. The light was strong golden hour light, but it was hitting the background cars and building so I wanted to minimize that distraction. I then brought some of the red back into the shot.
