A Daily Walk With DietPower
Walking is the best exercise for weight loss. And the things you see!
You know it's Good Friday when this display pops up on the King Street Firehouse parking lot. Like volunteer firefighters all over the nation, ours sell Easter flowers to make a few extra bucks for repairing and updating their facilities. In our case, the facilities include a dandy meeting hall where the King Street Church (just down the street) stages its annual autumn talent show and auction benefit (which I had the pleasure of photographing in 2005). In other words, the firemen are holding a fundraiser today to help the church better hold its fundraiser next fall. And to make this good old-fashioned symbiosis complete, some of these flowers will probably end up on the church's altar on Easter.
About this page: Precisely at noon each day, I step out of my office for a 3.5-mile walk around my Connecticut neighborhood. I carry a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TX5 pocket camera with a Leica 10x optical zoom lens. My object is to make an interesting photograph of at least one thing that is different that day. I post the results here, hoping they will inspire you and your friends to walk, too. —Terry Dunkle, DietPower founder and CEO.
