Today’s alternative to my usual run

Frisbee and a ball
Our frisbee and ball

I finally took some time to get outside, and exercise for the first time in about a week. I was going to do my usual run (it’s effective but I don’t particularly like it) when my daughter asked me to take her to the park.

I was about to say “No”, and that I wouldn’t have time, and then it occurred to both of us that I could take her to the park, and get my cardio workout.

So we took a ball and a frisbee. Our daughter (and, later, her friend too), threw the frisbee, or kicked the ball, and I ran around fetching it for them.

This worked out to be a win-win, I think.

Taking a park breather

It’s easy to get so caught up in work. I forget how nice it is to take a break, and head to the park towards the end of a day. 🌳

You’d think that I’d get out more given that I work from home, but I seem to do it less frequently.

Some random chair

I have no idea how this chair arrived here, in a nearby park, but I had to capture it before it moved on.

Just another random item that makes life a little more interesting …

A passing view of Park Annabe

I had a couple things to do in the city this morning and my route took me past Park Annabe, one of Modi’in’s central features. The buildings along the horizon to the right are part of a new neighbourhood that is nearing completion.

I’ve been meaning to come past this way for a couple weeks to update my photos of the new neighbourhood so I’m glad I had that chance this morning. I have a couple more photos on my DSLR that I’ll edit in the coming days.

Here are a couple photos I took with my DSLR:

I especially like this panorama that Lightroom stitched together for me:

Afternoon at the park

I took our kids off to the park yesterday afternoon and spent the time experimenting with my kit lenses some more. In good light, they actually work really well for me. I love the colour and contrast I get with the lenses, particularly my 18-55mm lens. I am really enjoying the wide angle stuff at the moment.
