Stockin Up

Shot some stock running images yesterday. Spent a bit of time stumbling around looking for places to shoot, only to realize that until the leaves come out around here most places look pretty shitty. But the model I was shooting, Abbie, was great to work with. Freidn of a friend, she’s a super cool woman and apparently a really good distance runner. the bummer is she lives in Wisconsin so I won’t get to shoot her again until later this summer. But I’ll look forward to that for sure.

So with cycling off the table as far as weekend activities, I engaged in the next best thing: chainsawing. Busted out the Husqvarna and cut some stuff down. We live on nearly 20 acres, there’s always something that needs sawing. I dropped a 40 ft hemlock right behind the house and it got caught up in a maple tree right next to it. It was close enough to where we park the cars that I really wanted to get it down lest it should fall in the middle of the night and whack the Subarus. So i spent the next couple hours rigging up every Rube Goldberg system to drag the hemlock free of the maple. I finally dragged it down with the car and some rope, but not before I skulked up to the hardware store and got laughed at by the guys up there. Man, I really miss riding my bike…
