Thursday Part III

...we got back from the shoot at discovery park much later than expected, (around 2:00 or so) and I had all of five minutes to get ready for the last shoot of the day. I hadn't even had a chance to think through what we were going to do for this particular shoot. All I knew was that I was shooting pictures of one of the trainers at the PRO Club with his bicycle. I took some time to talk to this trainer about cycling to get a feel for his personality and come up with some ideas for photos... I actually ended up learning a lot and now it's got me thinking about selling my car to get a bike. I've been threatening to sell my car for a couple years now so I could get a bike a ride to work. I only live 2 miles away, and it's just seems so silly to pay insurance on a car that I drive four miles a day, only to have no time to exercise because of my busy schedule! Not to mention the environmental issues. Now I'm starting to sound a little like an actual Seattlite... (If my family from back in NC reads this they are going to think I've turned to the green-side). Before you know it I'm going to be standing on a deserted street corner in the pouring rain waiting for a crosswalk signal. Don't worry, I haven't sold my car yet. And even if I do I promise it's for all the right reasons--like getting to wear tights... er... I mean, so I can get some exercise and save some money.
ANYWAY, the pictures turned out great, and I really like the one we will actually use in the magazine--although if you want to see them you will have to get a copy of the magazine...I don't have permission to put it up on here yet. However, I hate to close up shop here without giving you something to look at, so I cropped the guys face out of the picture.
Oh well.
