Cindy - Florida 6:15-7:00 PM

I was not able to walk earlier today, so I thought I would just skip today. However, when I took my son to football practice tonight I dress for a walk, just in case. Half way through the practice my husband showed up, so I figured it would be ok if I slipped away for a little creative walking! The practice was at the middle school. I walked here August 15th. This time I decided to walk up and down the hallways (it's an outdoors campus). I walked from building 10 to building 1 and than back again. I felt like a rat in a maze. I also walked around the field once.

The sunflower pictures, below, on the left were taken on the 15th of August and the ones on the right were taken tonight. What a difference 21 days makes.
This next group of pictures is extreme angles. Foreshortening-occurs when an object appears compressed when seen from a particular viewpoint and the effect of perspective causes distortion. My favorite picture is the pvc pipe in the grass, I imagine it's a mouses pov.
This next collage shows ground and sky, Matt and Noah and two item left behind, both modes of transportation.(bike and shoes)

Here's to another Creatively Fit day!
Have a relaxing Labor Day Weekend!

I hope to get my post in tomorrow. I did actually walk tonight, despite a swollen ankle and blisters. I have no idea how I did either, but ow they hurt.

Really cool photographs and love the perspective on the pipes!

Excellent number collage. I love your little lesson insert about foreshortening. I posted a photo to go along with the concept. I loved EVERY ONE of my pictures today, and I don't think my post quite does my walk justice, but it has gotten quite late and I am so tired. Nicholas and I had such a great time though.

Happy Labor Day weekend! Perhaps we should try to get together on Sunday?! Meet in the middle? Bok?
