Foot Traffic

  • Let the training begin!
    They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and never have I banked on those words as much as I have when picking out a training plan for Fort4Fitness.
  • In training: Meet Tami
    Meet Tami Brigle. She is a northwest Ohio resident who works in Fort Wayne. She began running a little more than a year ago, starting with Couch to 5K. Running helped her lose 55 pounds (she's lost 105 pounds total).
  • Triple play
    If one is good and two is better, what does that make three? I'd be inclined to say crazy but others might call it a challenge.

Shooter's Comments: This isn't how I would typically shoot a bunch of bicyclists, but since this is a world wide event, I wanted to incorporate something that said "Fort Wayne" while getting multiple riders in the shot.

I scoped out this shot while they were getting ready and waited for them to ride past me. These kinds of assignments stress me out easily since you have one chance and if it doesn't work, it doesn't work. In this case I had more than one chance, because if this photo didn't work, I had a map where I could pick a new spot, which I did anyway, but that photo wasn't as strong as this one.
