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.
