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. 

Week of Black and Whites, Day 3

Up Close
Normally I wouldn't shoot these flowers in black and white. They have a stunning purple color to them which is what drew my eye to them in the first place. But while looking at them through my camera, with a black and white setting selected, I found they looked more delicate in black and white than in color. I'll be sure to share the color version next week.

Shot with my G3 and processed through Lightroom and Topaz Labs. I wanted to bring out the veins in the petals, while still giving a delicate look to the flowers.
