It seems like every time I’m right on the edge, worn down from a particularly rough patch of travel, I get some film back from the lab that reminds me how lucky I am to have the job I have. This was from three weeks ago in Northern California (although it now seems like three months ago). The spot was beautiful, the guys I was shooting were entertaining to be around, and the opportunity unique. But between the beginning of April and the end of May I will have been away from home for over 40 days. I’ll need some more goodies from the lab to help out with coming to terms with that fact.
