A small break in the regularly scheduled, way-behind Croatia posts for a short picture post from the U. S. of A. Headed up to Maine last week to shoot a commercial in Acadia. I can certainly think of worse places to work in! Beautiful weather, autumn crispness in the air, and a hint of fall colours slowly popping out on the trees. Long hours, of course, I didn't get to explore Bar Harbor like I wanted to (I've been there before, but never for a good amount of time), but the shoot day consisted of waking up before dawn, catching the sunrise over Long Pond, and watching the sun set from the top of Cadillac Mountain. A bit of work scattered in there as well. Pas mal!
So green and mossy! Magical forest!
The Maine coastline is pretty amazing. It rained while we were scouting locations. Not bad though, I could always hide in the car for that ;)
Morning sun drying up the last of the fog
We had some duck friends for the shoot! And I liked the reflection of the sun lighting up the mountain
Sun is up between the hills. Loved this picture!
Cadillac Mountain golden hour
We were standing around and I thought 'I didn't come all the way up here to miss the sunset!' So I ran off to find a good view. I'm obviously a hard worker.
I need to work on my composite pictures. The foreground wasn't that bright until I uploaded it!
When people ask me what I do and I struggle to try and explain the bizarre nature of production work. There are some days when my work consists of battling Boston traffic while running absurd, nonsensical errands and circling the block for 30 minutes looking for parking. Some days it is 17 hours in a studio without seeing the outside. Some days it is 15 hours of me trying not to bang my head against the wall repeatedly (usually during the 4th coffee run). Some days I just stand around musing on what a bizarre job I have. Some days I wake up when it is still dark and get to see this....
...and end the day with this....
Courtesy of Acadia National Park and the BMW commercial I was shooting. I took entirely too many pictures, I'll be putting them in another post. Just thought I would share since my sewing machine stopped working and therefore my productivity for today plummeted.
Been back in the states for a little less than a week. I had an amazing time in Paris, as usual! I was ready to head back to Europe after 2 days! Well, gotta go back to work sometime. My restlessness after vacations has made me pretty productive the past few days. I've found that right after a trip is the perfect time to clean out your closets (and attic) and get rid of clothes and whatnot! Not only am I depressed and detached from everything (ha, whatever works!), but I've also been living in the same 5 shirts for the past month and my overflowing closet just seems outrageous! Silver linings, people.
I'm finishing up my 40's replica dress that I started before my trip, working in the yard (Spring! Finally!), editing and posting pictures from my trip, and getting some cooking done before I start work and my free time completely vanishes.
Check out the post I just made about Plitvice National Park in Croatia. Seriously gorgeous place filled with amazing waterfalls like you wouldn't believe!
Croatia guys!! Words can't describe how beautiful it is here. Even more beautiful on this one day it hasn't rained :) I did my best to soak up the sun! In the town of Makarska, just south of Split. Having an awesome time, I'm afraid I've created a solo-traveling monster! The world is mine! Starting to (slowly, i.e. I've put up one) put up some posts over at my travel blog --> Here but haven't had much time. So busy!
Hey! Still around. Busy editing pictures from my trip, sewing (I have 4 dresses I've made that I need to take pictures of and I'm working on a few more), Christmas shopping, and I finally have some real work scheduled. Yay, money. Maybe I can start planning my next trip ;)
...I say 'busy', but really....it feels like I haven't actually done anything in the past 2 weeks....I never really become accustomed to it getting dark at 4pm. I just have to hold on till Spring.
