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 was shooting Abby Pranger hose down her cow when her friend Caitlin Taylor hit her with a stream of water. They didn't really go at each other full force, but I got a nice reaction shot of Taylor getting hit. I started out using my 80-200mm lens for this shot, then switched to a wider-angle lens, but that didn't work out too well. The hardest part here was getting a good view of the calf in the image.
