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:

Editor's Note: This is a deceptively simple photo. By using a super-long lens, Sam compressed the depth of the photograph, making the water and the subject seem closer together than they really are. He was also careful to keep the background nice and clean, so that there's nothing to distract the eye from the foreground and middle ground elements.
