Photo: A Map of Physical INACTIVITY in Adults

Here is an interesting article to accomplish this: http://www.economist.com/blogs/graphicdetail/2012/07/daily-chart-11?fsrc=scn/fb/wl/bl/dc/slothfulnations

I wonder how they determine this? The article say

These figures are worrying. According to another paper in the Lancet, insufficient activity has about the same effect on life expectancy as smoking.

Yet life expectancy of some of the "Western Sloth Nations" is lot higher than some of the third world "NON-Sloth Nations"...Statistics!! ;))

Why Denver?
Because this will give the participants an opportunity to combine the Beyond Exposure Workshop with an optional side trip to the Rock Mountains to shoot the brilliant fall colors like the one shown in the photo below.

What is Beyond Exposure Workshop?
The Beyond Exposure workshop experience is designed to help you make your artistic vision a photographic reality. Award-winning professional photographers +Colby Brown, +Varina Patel and +Jay Patel will walk you through the intricacies of the photographic process – from the equipment they carry on-location, to the processing techniques they use to finish their images in the digital darkroom.
