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.

    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 like this shot from the University of Saint Francis football game against Malone University because it shows Antoin Campbell taking off down field fro a touchdown after breaking away from the Malone defense.

In the second quarter the University of Saint Francis was back lit as they ran towards goal. I had to be careful not to underexpose the shot. It was also hard to sometimes see the action, too. Bright light in your eyes will do that.

I used the spot meter mode in my camera so that the meter in my camera read the shadowed area. I could have also shot in manual exposure mode and metered from the grass.
