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:

For the speech by Burmese democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, I was perched on a riser at the other end of the Coliseum floor. I had a 300mm lens with a 1.4 extender attached, mounted on a tripod.

I knew when the students would be presenting Suu Kyi with flowers, but I didn't know if they would be on stage with her. I captured a nice moment with Suu Kyi and Julie Mano. It's a litte soft because of the extender and high ISO, but it is still the best photo I took of the event.
