S in pictures

I've been taking lots of black and white pictures in preparation for Super Snapshot Saturday, which has been a lot of fun.  Last night, S was working out, which is pretty much his favorite thing in the world to do, and I was in there with my camera, pretending I knew what I was doing, which I so don't.  I've discovered that I prefer the look of pictures taken without the flash, but haven't actually figured out how to make them look as sharp or clear.  Anyway... S was a willing subject as I played around, and I think I got some good shots, and some not so bad ones.  It helps that I love watching him work out, and he, even on nights like last night, where it didn't go as well as he would have liked, loves working out.  He started it seriously about a year ago, when he was approaching 40.  He'd been lamenting wasting his youth, never doing anything when he was young... you know, the typical midlife thing. :) (he's going to get me for that lol)  But he found a forum of older weight lifters that made him think maybe his last chance hadn't passed.  The changes in S's body have been impressive in the past year, whether he sees them or not.  But even better is the sense of accomplishment I see in him.  He comes out of that room pumped not only physically, but emotionally.  And when he's made a big jump in weight, or some other gain, his excitement fills the house.  So while I may complain about it occasionally, I'm thrilled that this is his passion.

(Once again, I apologize for the wonky formatting.  Blogger hates me.)

Love the photo sitting on the bench looking down. I feel a lot in that photo.

I also felt a lot in your earlier words to me. Truly. And I want to acknowledge that, and all your feelings and wisdom.

It is inspiring.

I am glad to know you.

I guess we all like the photo on the bench best. I think the black and white format was great. It gives the photos more feeling...i think.
