Today Los Angeles hosted its 2016 Marathon. As I do every year, I went to see the 25,000 runners from around the US and the world zoom by my neighborhood on their way to Santa Monica. I missed the members of the elite teams (who ended up winning the race) by a few minutes, but it’s always fun to see and cheer for the thousands of athletes and regular runners who show enormous endurance and determination to complete the 26.2-mile race under pretty hot conditions. These photos were taken in Brentwood, which is Mile 22 or the race, just a few miles from the finish line, where I plan to be next year. 🙂
Photos taken at the Petersen Museum, Los Angeles, CA.
Cee’s B&W Challenge: Anything starting with the letter “S”
I DID IT! ~~
This is the last day of the year and the last day of my 365 Project. When I decided to take on this project, I knew it would be hard –many abandon it midway– but I wanted to do it because it would keep me engaged in photography and help improve my skills in the process. I was quite surprised at my dedication to the project and what seemed an impossible challenge at first, turned out to be a pleasurable daily task. Much to my satisfaction, there are 365 daily posts on my blog for 2015! A huge thanks to those of you who gave me daily encouragement by checking out, liking, or commenting on my posts. That was so helpful!
Now, having said all that, I do need a break from the daily commitment so I won’t continue the 365 Project. Instead, I will work on other interesting projects, maybe more complex ones, that will help me continue to grow as a photographer and stay disciplined at the same time. More about that later…
So, for my last post of this 2015 365 Project, instead of one new photo, I chose twelve photos with a recurring theme, the sunset, which I captured just about every month of the year. Some photos have been featured in the project, some have not. I hope you enjoy them!
And HAPPY NEW YEAR to All!
