Waiting for Jen to pick me up this morning, I couldn’t believe I wasn’t out hiking for this sunrise!
My friend Ann and her boyfriend Rob ran the Lake Cachulla Triathlon today. Ann ran this Tri last year too. Today she bettered her time and Rob came in first in his division and 3rd OVERALL!!!
I’ve uploaded 200 Triathlon photos to my Portfolio website. Click here to view photos. Click on Slideshow after following the link to see the photos full screen.
Jen and I went out and photographed the swimming and biking portions, focusing on Ann and Rob, of course.
I asked Jen to write something to go along with these photos of mine I’ve posted from our evening last night.
Here is what she wrote:
“What is modern photography? With not only technology changing quickly every day, photography is unique in that how people view their visual world changes just as quickly and at the same ratio as the medium of photography itself. Growing up in a family where knowing that form follows function was just as important as knowing the Presidents, it was so nice to revisit the Palm Springs art museum last night to hear a lecture by Los Angeles gallery owner, Paul Kopeikin. My grandfather, along with Stew Williams, designed the museum. As I walked through the museum last night with our hosts, Barbara and Bernie, childhood memories came back of playing through the museum and sliding down rails, of listening to my grandfather light up when I asked him to explain the significance of anything from the Dead Sea to Le Corbusier.”
There were 5 of us who got up early (after little sleep) and hiked the Bump & Grind early this morning. There is a weekend event going on here in the desert and throughout today many more friends will arrive. Will be interesting to see who joins on tomorrow morning’s hike.
