Foot Traffic

  • Post-race thoughts on Fort4Fitness
    The air was cool and a chill traveled up my bare legs as I took that step out the door. A pit was in my stomach, churning. I sauntered to the starting point, giving my GPS watch time to find a satellite.

    "There was a witch, in Williams-Woodland," my husband said. "Don't you remember her?" My reply was a blank stare.
  • In the bag
    I have my number - 14182. I have my shirt ... and luggage tag, magnet, pen, requisite goodies. I also have a coupon for a $1 drink at Parkview Field after the race tomorrow. Note to self:

Shooter's Comments: I woke up at 3:30 a.m. to cover a royal wedding party this morning at the Harrah's residence in Fort Wayne. Everyone who attended was into the wedding, and I had no idea this subculture even existed. When the sun was starting to come up, I noticed that Julie was on the edge of the sofa, glued to the television.

I had two speedlights set up, pointed toward the wall with CTO gels on the window side of the room to simulate daylight and also throw some light underneath the hats they were wearing, so I could see their faces. The color balance of the flashes turned the outside view a nice deep blue to really give it that early morning feel.
