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: The Anthis Career Center is having their annual fruit sale on Thursday. I got to the location on Wednesday and tons of students were busy making an assembly line, packing fruit in baskets.

I thought I could get a nice angle by shooting this from above. Luckily, it was in a building that I could climb to a second story and shoot from above. I have been trying to stand back and look at the whole picture these days. I tend to shoot tighter for the paper. Lately though, I want to look for interesting details in the background, foreground, leading lines, patterns, ect. to make the image more story telling.
