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:

I expected to see balloons and confetti fall from the sky, but it didn't happen. The bridge was still closed when I got there,so I just chatted with the officer directing traffic and a photographer from channel 15.

I saw a worker being raised in a bucket and he started removing the detour signs. I shot wide and tight and settled on this shot. It's clean, has a nice expression and it's to the point. I thought it was a nice photograph that showed a little something different than cars driving down the road.
