JPS Visual Week In Review: 04 |11 | 15

Visual Week In Review 041115

Easter dawned chilly and bright last week. I did a quick trail run, then we headed to services.

Mad Men returned later in the day.

The rest of the week was drizzly and chilly. I powered through some work stuff, didn’t shoot too much. Sometimes it’s there, sometimes it isn’t. Even a partially foggy morning didn’t give me anything back in return that I liked. Oh well.

Always Be Shooting.

My big find this week, thanks for an article in the Financial Times, was the work of Richard Estes. He does photorealistic paintings. Paintings! And lordy lord lord, his work is fantastic. Check them out.

Oh, and today, I ran a local 5K race. After I ran 3.5 miles to the start. Then ran 3.5 miles home. I finished the race in 24:36, good for 4th in my age group and 26th out of 91 runners overall.

Pizza and wine was on tap for dinner.
