January 01, 2017

It is another year. Once again I find myself alone at the cabin. The rest of the crew are on holidays in the Dominican Republic. I stayed behind to scrape the snow and ice off of the solar panels.

The area gets a lot of snow this time of year. The drive in was uneventful but somewhat nervewracking as the frequent snow squalls can cause whiteout conditions.

This time of year there is an hour walk to get in as the road is covered in several feet of snow. Although it is packed down by the snowmobiles it is still too deep to allow the truck to pass as it will quickly sink down to the axels and get stuck.

January 02, 2017    Night Shots With iPhone 7

I am enjoying the video capability of the iPhone. This was shot with the iPhone 7 combined with a DJI steadycam gimbal.

January 03, 2017    The Strangler: A Bedtime Story For Children

It is interesting how ambient noise can add sound effects for free. Here is a little movie with no special effects or editing except for that little bit at the end. It was shot with the iPhone 7 and DJI gimbal.

January 04, 2017    Joel: Age 1

Now I start a new project. I discovered a shoebox of 35mm negatives in the garage. Many of the negatives are scratched and show signs of water damage. I purchased a 35mm negative scanner and plan to post some of the images here.  I am not sure of when the images were taken but they are mostly about 20 years ago before digital cameras. Here is one from Joel's first birthday.
