Yay!!  Socializing!!  Awesome you've been getting together with fellow photogs!  Also, you are drinking quite a bit of water, but I doubt you're at a risk of drinking too much water...I'm not sure how you would be get there....

Also, somewhat related but pretty sure it makes me a horrible influence too: next weekend is Collaboration Fest up here in Denver.  Really excited cause it's a bunch of breweries getting together to make unique beers just for the festival itself.  Yummy!

The other photogs are often folks I know/knew  ... so its good to catch up. Also just to reconnect with that group who are always teaching and learning. It's cool

 

I feel you on the beer fest and am SLIGHTLY jealous

That water drop shot is awesome!  I think water is probably my favorite thing to photograph, especially when it's moving. :)

Thanks!

 

I happened to notice the droplets on the handrail outside my office yesterday and had my camera so took the opportunity that presented itself.

Felt better after hanging out with friends?!

It was get out of my own way situation ... I tend to get down when left to my own devices and nothing actively engaging me ... I work hard to avoid it but sometimes it happens and you just have to ride the melancholy.

WEEK3 WRAP UP (MID TERM REPORT )

5832658469_31fd725a63.jpg

QUEST 1

Looking over things I'm overall doing well here with weeks 1 and 3 had the goal met. Week 2 slipped as I was sick for two days. I'm pondering upping the mileage but I'm worried about old injuries coming out to play and with Ragnar in a month I need to keep myself in proper shape. 

 

QUEST 2

THIS is eluding me ... my weeks are too social and I'm falling back into bad habits. Time to double down and get out of my own way

 

QUEST 3

I'm solid here ... water isn't really an issue it seems even though I thought it was. Consider me pleasantly surprised. 

 

QUEST 4

A few canceled events didn't stop me here. Still a few more events to attend to meet the goal.
