of our 2011 Project 52*
(*give or take a week here and there for vacations)
This month's theme is...yellow!
These photos were taken by the Hunk in my life. He was in charge of capturing random moments while I slaved away on a 3-mile walk.
The first of many walking adventures for me, I hope. The journey was not as bad as I thought it would be. For most of you, a 3-mile walk would probably an easy task. Not for me. You see, I am the most lethargic person on the planet. Not so sports oriented.
So, when I mentioned to the Hunk that I wanted to start off my athletic career in trail walking (and eventually running), he was very supportive. Mr. Cross Country Team gave me stretching tips as I trained every morning before work by walking our puppy, Friday.
On the day of the walk, I was scared that I would pass out from heat exhaustion or cramping. But it went well. The trail offered interesting vantage points and local flora. I was distracted by the sights and sounds and the adrenaline from all the other walkers/runners.
I noticed these yellow-orange flowers along the last leg of the walk, and when I looked back at him, he was already capturing their essence. I love how these turned out. Straight out of camera. No post processing. Clean and crisp. Great reminders of a nice spring day.
I will always look back with fondness at these pictures as the start of our healthier lifestyle. We are eager to join more walks at least once a month.
In fact, I am already looking forward to May and June's events.
I will also remember that the Hunk also took this opportunity to capture this cute blonde who was running behind us. No wonder he takes his trainer/photographer role to heart. Hazards of the profession, that.
