The Agile Fox Friday Foto – 12.14.2012

After a year and a half of including a ‘pic of the week’ at the end of my weekly training summary, I’ve decided to let it stand as a post of its own.  I’m also implementing a rule that the Friday Foto needs to have been taken sometime in the last week.  No recycling.  I am doing this to keep me engaged in building my photography skills, and to make me work harder to get fresh shots.  Click here to see my previous Friday Foto posts.


I am bending my own rule a little bit by posting a shot that was taken outside of the previous week.  The magazine did arrive a few days ago, though…

This is the first photo I have had published in a magazine.  It is a great reminder of the fun day I had shooting the Bear Chase 50M/50K race in late September at Bear Creek Lake Park near Morrison, CO.  It was actually the first running event I attempted to photograph.  While I didn’t get any direct reward out of it, the intangibles have been great.  Getting a reward is not my focus anyway, trying to take good pictures is.

Of course Dustin made for a great subject which made my job easier.  Not looking too shabby for being on mile 28!

I enjoyed the process of working with Tia at Ultrarunning, starting with a cold-contact and going all the way through the specs needed for print.  It was a good learning experience and I look forward to doing it again!
