Been a little while since the last post, so here’s the rundown.
Bryan and I went up to shoot Oak Creek in Sedona last Saturday. While the weather report claimed it would be cloudy, there were almost no clouds to be seen. It was a beautiful day, and there were tons of tourists. Damn. We parked next to the road and hiked up a wash looking for some interesting shots. We mostly did interesting hiking and climbing. Great day for a hike, but not for photography.
It’s always good to get out there and hike around looking for interesting things to shoot. I got to thinking about a trip to Alaska in May or June for a week or so. The last couple of trips have been in September, but it might be fun to go up a little earlier in the year.
At work, we’ve recently finished 6 weeks of research for my project, which was pretty much constant adrenaline for me. We’re now going into analysis, and it’s nice to have things slow down a little. But I’ve definitely noticed that I’m a lot less motivated this week. I think it’s just from the pace dropping from crazy to normal, but it’s definitely interesting.
This friday I move into Level 3 in To-Shin Do. Level 3 is made up of 3 green belts and 3 brown belts. If I continue on at my current pace, I should spend about 7 months in the Green belts, but will have to spend at least 9 months in the browns. Kelli’s going to help out with my demo, along with a level one guy who is brave enough to be subjected to nasty joint locks and takedowns.
