Besides looking for light I am always looking for different angles. One of the things I like about this gym is that it is open and when you come in on the ground level you can look down through a circular opening at the treadmills on the lower level. I give them a quick scan and settle on the one I will use. Part of my physical therapy is to walk backwards on the treadmill...talk about angles and seeing things differently. The idea is that it helps to fully extend the leg. This "retro-treadmill" work is no small feat and is very disorienting. But it underscores the importance of angles, not only in photography but in every aspect of life it is important to see all sides.
