We spent a few days in Salt Lake City (and vicinity) this summer while on a two-week multiple story trip through California and Nevada. The sky never ends here. Everywhere I looked, there was an incredible vista framed by mountains. These frames attempt to illustrate, but just barely do the sky justice.

We put together a few videos from this portion of the trip. I shot the footage, Len did the editing and graphics.

Backlog: My first work travel – Nashville

I travel for work. A lot. I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m a videographer for the IBEW. We shoot stories, videos for conferences, commercials for national TV, and anything else that we might need. My first travel story was to Nashville for an organizing blitz. After spending a full day riding around in a car on said blitz with a local organizer and one from Atlanta, my coworker (he’s our amazing producer) and I went to dinner downtown.

I love how there’s music everywhere, even on the street corner.

This old train bridge is now a pedestrian walkway over the river. The light was amazing.

And of course, no trip to Nashville would be complete without a bit of country in a touristy, kitchy bar. These guys were SO GOOD. But then again, I feel like everyone in Nashville is SO GOOD.

Overall, the trip was a great success. I learned a LOT about shooting video on my DSLR, and remembered that I make myself seasick when I try to shoot without support. Here’s the video I produced.

Backlog: Justin is really smart

My brother Justin is awesome. And really, really smart. First he graduated from RIT in software engineering, then he worked at the Fed for a while (which I selfishly loved, since he lived just the next town over from me), and then he went back to RIT for a master’s in game design. Now he’s graduated with a job, moved to San Francisco, and still doesn’t email me enough. (Just kidding. Kinda.)

Waiting.

More waiting.

My parents are even more proud of his accomplishments. I don’t blame them.

Backlog: Amber’s first bath

Amber’s being a pain in the ass today, so I thought I’d embarrass her (if that were really possible) with first bath photos. I mean, other people’s babies have their first bath photos, so why not ours?

Wet fur.

She needed a firm hold to keep her in the tub.

She sure loves Scott. And being clean.

**Bathtime is a lot easier now in the house. We have a hose-connected shower head (to make it tall enough for Scott), so no more Shakespeare’s cup. She’s still not a fan, but at least she stopped trying to escape soaking wet.
