It's best to use your own strength to give yourself a lift. Somedays I like to start my morning with some weight training. I've been on and off doing this exercise and I believe it's time to get them in hand again.
My first Mission24 image was of these weights, it was good to be able to see them again.
Taken for the challenge for the flickr group Mission24, where the goal was to image something that evokes "LIFT."
Snapped with a Pentax K10D camera using the smc P-DA 14mm F2.8 lens. PP with UFRaw to set curves and crop. I was laying on my back holding this weight up with my left hand and shooting with my right. Thank goodness for bracketing and a wide DoF available with this lens!
