Week #18
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.

Oh, I just love California poppies! I used to have some in my front yard, but I haven't planted them in my new house. I still have seeds, though! Great photos!
