      Why This Photo:
      I went on a three mile run Saturday for the first time since I ran the Las Vegas Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon and I realized that it is time to switch up my running shoes. As I was thinking about it, I realized these shoes hold tremendous significance for me – I bought them hours before I learned I was pregnant with Carter and since then they have carried me through losing the baby weight after two children, four half marathons (Oktoberfest twice, Mercer Island, & Las Vegas), a 5k, and hundreds upon hundreds of training miles. Good bye old friends – I have loved and hated you so much!

      Challenges/Lessons Learned:
      Who knew that there would be challenges posing shoes! I tried one on top of the other, at various angles, any combination I could think of. I liked this look the best because that is how I always saw them waiting for me each time I would grab them to lace up for yet another run. Then next challenge I had was getting the focus/bokah what I wanted. In order to achieve the depth of field and focusing how I wanted, I switched my lens over to manual focus and started experimenting until I got this final result. I went back and forth on whether or not to put this to black and white, or potentially use a preset to give it a more aged look, but I decided that for me this representation was perfect, especially with the dirt from the trail clinging to the soles still.
