Running Away

Can running be an addiction? You bet. You get a high... you think about it a lot... you envy others when you see them running... you spend a lot of money on it (yes, I have a lot of shoes)... when you have to stop you go through withdrawals (dang foot and knee!!!)... you do it even though sometimes it's actually bad for you... you constantly push your body's limits... AND other people think you're insane for doing it. Sounds like an addiction to me. ;)

WOO HOO! GREAT TAKE ON THE CHALLENGE! I love this--SUPER setup, framing, colors, everything! You did a great job!

Mindy said...

Thanks, Rach! Like you, I took some time on the setup... yup, anything for a picture! ;)

Candace said...

You always come through with such creativity, Mindy! Love it. My mom has this same addiction. I like to run, but it's definitely not an addiction for me. I wish it were. :)

Love the depth of field, the lighting, and the set-up. Great job!

Wow! I'm impressed by how you made something as boring as shoes so intriguing! I love how the color of the floor really gives the picture some pop. Oh, and nice call on the layers and DOF.

BTW-I'm with ya, running/exercise is my main addiction :).

I want to be addicted to running! Sadly everything I'm addicted to keeps my bum in a chair.
