A Daily Walk With DietPower
Walking is the best exercise for weight loss. And the things you see!
Now the bloodroot blossom (see April 17) has fully opened and the petal tips have begun to curl.
See how the curling petals alternate and are broader than the other four? I had never noticed this before. A good eye makes a good picture, but a good picture also makes a good eye.
I am amazed at the new camera's performance. This closeup is about five times actual size on a 17-inch monitor at 1024 x 768 pixels resolution. You can clearly see not only the gray veining on the petals, but also tiny crystalline flecks adhering to them. Yet the picture was made with a hand-held, eight-ounce camera that fits into my shirt pocket.
(On Monday and Tuesday I'll do my daily walk in Boston, where I'm going for an overnight. Check back Tuesday evening or Wednesday for pictures.)
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.
