Why so many ‘vaguely’ notes? This trip wasn’t very long ago compared to past backlog posts, and while the forecast called for almost 9″ of snow, we got barely 2″. C’est la vie, no?

The morning of the snowstorm, we decided to head out with a local assistant business manager to find a wind farm. We don’t have any video of them, and thought that it would be good to have for the future. (We also were trying to include some wind turbine footage in our manufacturing project, but not sure if that’ll work.)

In any case, the video looks pretty neat, and I made sure to take some stills while freezing my fingers off in 19 degree weather with a wind chill of about 4. Oh, and the nice leather gloves I bought for this trip? They served their purpose here, and then Amber decided to eviscerate them the day I got home. Sérieusement, c’est la vie.

Backlog: Timelapse; or a little story about love.

A Test Time-Lapse; or A Little Story About Love. from Erin Sutherland on Vimeo.

I found this on a compact flash card today, while we were setting up a timelapse for the coming snowstorm. Forgetting that I had already uploaded it to Vimeo when it was taken, I tried to upload it again. Silly me. I must have shared it on Facebook, because it shows up in the referrals, but I never posted it to my blog.

So here you go. Five seconds of adorable-ness from me and Scott. This was taken on March 31, 2012 in our old apartment. This is also the kinds of things we used to do before we got Amber. Now all the photos are of her.
