Disabled list

This is probably the first time I have not gone on a dedicated weekend photo hike in… I actually don’t remember the last time. I’ve been on the Disabled List for a few weeks with a bum foot, but it didn’t stop my hikes, only slowed me down.

I finally gave in and started physical therapy first of the week and it was going really well, until Thursday. I overdid and the pain migrated up from my foot – which feels almost back to normal – into my calf and the back of my knee. By Saturday, I literally couldn’t walk without a serious limp, and an ugly “OMG! That friggin’ hurts’ grimace.

Ice, a heating pad and knee wrap have been my constant companions.

So…

This weekend’s pix are from a road trip to Foley, AL and Pensacola, the menfolk and I took to look at new project cars for our son. He sold his first car last week and is eager to get a new one. Fortunately for us, the ‘rents, and unfortunately for him, the trip was unsuccessful. He still has that little kid ‘instant gratification’ need, while we are encouraging him to look at LOTS of cars before making a decision, and not getting the first one he sees.

We took back roads and just enjoyed the scenery. And, I could just snap away from the passenger seat of the car.

If you follow me on Instagram (@tara_r), you will have already seen these… sorry about the repeats.

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. I still have that little kid need for instant gratification and I’m 41. It’s really bad actually and I’m trying to work on it. Keep up the great work with your PT.
