Day 180 of my 365 Project

This morning when I got up and looked outside and noticed this line of mushrooms in the grass. Unless something epic came up today, this was going to be my picture of the day. I got a couple of shots of it from different angles to see which one I wanted to use. I added three textures in Photoshop to get the above effect.

Something cool happened to me yesterday late I want to share. On Facebook, the National Weather Service in Shreveport, Louisiana had a contest to submit weather pictures and they would use one of them as their cover photo. Well, I won. Here is the shot that won.

Day 77 of my 365 Project

I was given a challenge on Facebook to do an action shot showing some muscle. Being retired from the Air Force five plus years, I don’t have that much muscle anymore. There is some, as the above picture show, but not a lot. This is my wake up call to start working out. Now that I’m writing this down, I’m gonna have to stick with it. I’m going to do another shoot like this in about three months to see how much progress has been made. Thanks David Carr for the challenge.

The above pictures are me pulling a small tractor tire, doing a pull up and doing a pushup. I tried the ax swing but the pictures didn’t come out very well.
