Details in the forest

It has been almost a month since I have know about my residency this summer in the WMNF and I am already workin' hard.  It is difficult to consider that I will need to pack into whatever location I select to work all of what I will need.  So what will I need?  Clothes, food WATER, shelter from BuGs! and then my equipment.  and since there is not any extension cord at the top of most mountains, I will need power too. 

Monday Sarah and I went to the top of Chocorua, the first hike of the summer and it reinforced several things.  1,  I need to condition my legs a bit better :-)  they still hurt today, Thursday.  2,  I need to stay at the summit, or near it to get the images I want.  What a beautiful landscape, but in order to capture its amazingness, I really need to be up there at dawn and at dusk, chasing the light.   3,  there are more opportunities than I thought, I am excited! to go out with just my camera.  4,  How the devil am I supposed to get all my gear with me if I need to carry all that non essential stuff like food and water?  5,  I can't even keep my cell powered up for a day, how am I going to keep it powered up for a few?  and then power a camera for a time lapse. 

Hmmm  I may just have to try something different. 

Some of the technical stuff I should have straightened out in short order, now I need to work on where I will be and when for those AIR community outreach events, talks, makin' art with others, and the like.  Stay tuned, Ill let you know when and where.
