workout / worked out


L- Nikon / T - Nikon

I started boot camp today - early - 8am on a Saturday morning. A lady at work roped 3 of us into signing up with her for a 6 weeks boot camp. It was held outside, down by the river. The air was cool this morning and the mist rose off the water as the rowers passed by. But I was soon shedding my outer layer of clothing because of the hard workout. It was pretty brutal - full hour without stopping. But it feels good to be sore and tired and I assume I will improve my performance as time goes on. / i'm really into this book sculpture thing, so i was really excited when i got to try my luck at it again on part three of our 3D design texture project. we were supposed to draw or paint a visual texture, so while i was playing around with my book and doing what we used to do in middle school (flipping up the pages to make a flower-type thing) i had a revelation. bamboo! it worked out pretty well (except the "bamboo" got a little squished as i added more and more "stalks") and i got a good critique on it in class. our next project is body modification... wish me luck! haha

both of you are working it out - stretching and reaching. I like that.

I never grow tired of your marriage of photographs. Beautiful colour.

Body modification. Now that should be interesting.

I should be going to boot camp. It's great that the weather was nice enough to hold the camp outside.

I'm slow on the draw - did your daughter slip bamboo in between the folded book pages? What is the body modification thing? Thirdly, momma, do you have a fine arts degree (I'm assuming that is what she is working on)?

Have a nice evening!

This is so nice! Bamboo is one of my favorite things to decorate with and to eat:) I love the green against the green...gorgeous.
