Work has been super busy, I'm working on two interesting projects at once. One is dealing with drug and alcohol abuse in Native teens. We'll be shooting in April in Barrow, the northernmost state in the US. I'm super excited to go, as I've never been...even though I've spent time on the North Slope at Prudhoe Bay on a wildlife project, Barrow is even FURTHER north! I may indeed be able to see Russia from there! I'm also continuing with the Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge project, and just finished up a second winter shoot. So far, for our winter shoots, we've incorporated wildlife (mainly small caribou herds this time of year, as well a few other animals), cross country skiers, snow machines, planes and dog sledding. Can’t wait for spring and summer when we'll be really getting more into the wildlife filming. Because work's so busy, I haven't been able to take many pics. Therefore, I'm posting some from my trip to New York in August. I spent about 36 hours in NYC before the premiere of the PBS doc, "For the Rights of All" in Washington DC. I'm fortunate that my dad and step mom have an apartment waaay downtown near Wall Street, so I got to spend the night there. I usually spend most of my time on the lower East Side on my visits to NYC (graduated from NYU), but figured I might as well explore the Wall Street area for a change! These pics were taken at the New York Stock Exchange (you can see it from my folks' window!), naively thinking I could take a tour. There was only pedestrian traffic, as well as armed guards and explosives units. But I did get to watch a bomb sniffing dog get a treat and as I was taking a pic, a truck pulled up to get inspected, so I got to watch that, too. Very cool!
