Pink is my favorite color which is a good thing because I shot the Color Me Rad 5K today. During the race contestants ran through stations where a “bomb squad” doused them with splashes of color (dyed cornstarch).

My toes, elbows, hands and face have a slight pink tint to them. It is a small reminder that I chose to spend a large part of my time shooting pictures at the pink color bomb station. At the end of the race, the runners celebrated with a color fight.
