It's hard to tell for sure, but you might have 'lost a step' as we say in the U.S. -- didn't get as far away this time as in some of your other photos.

Just so there's no misunderstanding, I disagree with Jacque.

There is no idiomatic expression in the U.S. that goes “[Y]ou might have ‘lost a step.’” Rather, we say something like “I think you might have missed a step, there” and this is generally a non-threatening way of criticizing another person’s line of reasoning.

A more hostile form is to say “You skipped a step” which implies the omission was purposeful, evidencing bad faith.

Just saying.

P.S. Love the photos!

bissage, my friend, there is an idiomatic expression "lost a step." It does not mean to have forgotten to do something, rather its meaning is that one has slowed down, typically with advancing age.

For instance, one might say "Although his return from retirement was greeted with wild acclaim, it was clear that the aging basketball star had lost a step on his younger competitors."

But of course, I meant my comment in a spirit of fun - I love the Running from Camera blog!

Jacque, right you are!

I should use teh Googles more and teh comments less.

As penance, today I shall use that expression three times on three separate people.

What fun!
