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:

Shooter's Comments:

Since I covered the ACD Auction this whole weekend I thought it would be interesting to shoot detail shots of cars by going through the alphabet. It was really fun looking for the shapes of all the letters.

I was challenged in my creative mind because some letters were a bit hard like G, B, K, and R. Luckily, drops of rain were beading on a blue car and one droplet looked like a G. Other letters just kind of popped out, while others I really had to search for.

I got this idea from one of my photojournalism friends from college. She did this at her paper's fair. I just thought, "Why not take some time and look closely at the details of all the hundreds of cars?"

I might even put a book together for my son so he can learn his alphabet visually. I encourage anyone with a camera to go out and look for the alphabet in your home, outside, or just around town. See what you come up with. It was fun!
