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.
  • Fort4Fitness: The race recap
    "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:

Judy Gerardot and other East Allen County bus drivers listen to instructions before an accident scenario in which Gerardot participated as a "victim." The group was evacuated from the bus and later talked about the scenario they went through and had a chance to ask questions of firefighters that were helping with the training. The emergency situation training was held at New Haven High School.

Editor's Note: In this photo, Laura is using a visual technique that photographers call "layering." It means that you try to have good information in all of the layers of the image: the foreground, the middle ground and the background.

It's a great technique when you can pull it off and Laura has done a great job here. The foreground even includes leading lines that draw the eye through the picture. Very nice work.
