I am already thinking of the 24 to 30 hours of endurance photography I will shoot here in a couple of days. I also think of why these athletes ride 200 miles of gravel roads. I think it is much the same for both of us. Can I do it? What is the best I can do with what I have in the time given? I think it kind of relates to live, don’t you?
After seeing the faces of those that finish that appear fresh, I see the immediate tiredness as they move from the finish. As those that finish with the soulless gaze of someone who has nearly broken but didn’t, I see the resolve that defines the human spirit. I see the ability of humans to reach inside and find something that they did not think was there.
