Walkabout With Penelope

My lovely wife Penelope and I have been taking walks around Downtown recently. I've been shooting photos as we walk. Here are a few random shots from our last two walks:

Downtown LA Walkabout #10

Earlier this morning I went on my tenth Downtown Walkabout. I just got a Polar F11 heart rate monitor, as recommended to me by my sister-in-law, Merrilee. After telling it your stats and doing a resting heart-rate test you then go through a series of gradually more difficult exercises. This allows the system to determine your target heart rate for varying levels of exertion. Then you tell it how much you want to work out each week and it takes you through a series of exercise levels during your workout. At the end it tells you how many calories you burned and how long you worked out. Pretty cool! After an hour and 22 minutes of walking at a very brisk pace I burned 777 calories.

Anyhow, here are a few of the photos I shot on my walk:

Kauai Walkabout

Last weekend my lovely wife and I went to Kauai for a good friend's wedding. We were only there for 2 nights, which is certainly not enough time to explore the luscious and beautiful island known as the Garden Island. Here are some photos I shot during a walk we took the morning before the wedding:

Downtown LA Walkabout #9

This morning I went on my 9th walkabout in Downtown LA. I decided to walk up to the Civic Center. I actually shot with a Canon Rebel XTi which I'm reviewing for WIRED News. It's not a bad camera, although it's quite and doesn't feel comfortable in my hands. Keep an eye out for the review coming soon. Here are a few of the photos I shot:

Downtown LA Walkabout #8

This whole waking up early thing is great for my productivity. I've been getting a great deal of work done, and that's before the sun even rises. I've also been getting all my reading in and completing a round of lumosity. I have also exercising every morning, and today I took an hour long walk, covering about 4 miles. I shot some photos along the way:

Downtown LA Walkabout #7

I love waking up early. This morning I rolled out of bed and started my day at 5:00 a.m. I love watching the sun come up and light up the skyline. I haven't been doing my walkabouts for a few days now, instead opting to do calisthenics in the loft, including jumping jacks, crunches, lunges and running in place.

Today I went for my walkabout despite the heavy coverage of smoke from a fire on 16th and Los Angeles. Today I walked up 5th street, over the Harbor Freeway and back down 6th street. Here are a few of the photos I shot along the way:

Downtown LA Walkabout #6

This morning I woke up at 5:30 a.m., although I tried to wake up at 5:00 it didn't quite happen. After rolling out of bed, weighing myself and drinking my morning glass of water I had a light breakfast, read my news feeds and played a round of the reputedly mind-sharpening Lumosity. I don't normally play games, but I enjoy the quick mental challenges that Lumosity offers and I am considering getting a paid account when my trial runs out, although $80 a year seems kind of steep. After I finished all of that I went on my walkabout and shot some photos:

Downtown LA Walkabout #5

On my quest to lose weight and be healthy I have been going on walks through various Downtown LA districts almost every morning. Today I walked through the Fashion District and shot some photos. Here are a few highlights:

Downtown LA Walkabout #4

I can't remember the last time I woke up at 6:00 AM on a Saturday morning when it didn't involve Search and Rescue. I didn't even set an alarm, but when I woke up and rolled over it was just a few minutes after six. I am really enjoying this early rising thing. I used to think I was more productive at night, but now that I'm getting up early I realize that I am actually a more effective worker in the morning.

As I mentioned the other day, I've been following the Zen Habits morning routine, although instead of fixing lunches for the kids, I feed the cats. I have also started getting ready for my day before I go to bed, again per Zen Habit's recommendations. I have really been enjoying the last point, reading myself to bed.

Today after breakfast I went for a brisk 45 minute walk around Downtown Los Angeles. I brought my camera along, and here are a few of the photos I shot:

Downtown Los Angeles Walkabout #3

As you may have noticed, I've been walking around Downtown to get exercise and shooting photos along the way. I'm trying to doing this every day. I think I'm going to do it first thing tomorrow morning after I wake up and have my glass of water (I stopped drinking coffee). I like the Zen Habits morning routing idea, I'm going to give it a shot. Anyhow, here are a few of the photos I shot earlier today:

Downtown LA Walkabout #2

Toady I went for my second walkabout in Downtown Los Angeles, in what will be a series of many such walks. I shot a couple of photos of random interesting things that I saw. I really like the photo of the flying rat pigeon above an alley. These photos were shot with my Canon 5D and a 16-35 f/2.8 L II lens.

Downtown Los Angeles Walkabout 1

Now that I'm 30 I've decided it is time to lose some weight. Part of that will involve adjusting my diet to lower my caloric intake. Another part will involve exercise. I am making the exercise part fun by going for an hour walk every day around Downtown and shooting photos along the way. I plan on going a different way each day to avoid monotony, today I walked over to Little Tokyo to drop off a Demand Warrant for DLANC. Here are a few photos I shot along the way:

Update I totally forgot to mention that these were shot with my brand new lens, the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II. So far I'm really digging it. Also Jim Winstead pointed out the irony of my first choice of photo in a post about losing weight!
