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:

Shooter's Comments:

On Thursday, I covered Democratic senate candidate Joe Donnelly and former senator Evan Bayh touring Paint the Town Graphics while campaigning in Fort Wayne. I used two cameras. One had a 17-35 mm zoom lens and the other camera had a 14mm lens.

I was guessing that space would be tight, and I was right. At one point, while I was taking photos, I looked up to see that I was in the way of the television cameras. This was totally unintentional.

I really do try to avoid being on television. The photo I selected for the paper has our Washington Editor Brian Francisco in the background. This was also unintentional.
