Hobbing around this morning on a sprained foot.  Not sure when it happened. Probably while hiking around the uneven ground at FloydFest Saturday. While driving back to Floyd late in the afternoon, noticed pain while using the clutch to shift the Wrangler.

Sat in the hot tub for an hour or so to relieve all the aches and pains that come from three days walking the hills, dales and byways of the festival, climbing up and down various objects to get better angles for photos and carrying about 35 pounds of camera equipment.

Into the zone

As a photographer, I've always gone "into the zone" when working. Into the zone means oblivious to all else -- danger, environment, aches, pains or physical limitations. The zone served me well in war. I could scamper about, and into situations that no sane individual would possibly attempt. That's how I got good photos. It's also why some of my body parts don't function as well as they should today and why some are missing or held together with pins, plastic and screws.
