About 5 minutes had passed since my friends disappeared through the sliding doors behind me. They were off to check for our luggage on the other side. I decided I would hang back in the event this was our baggage claim. Charles de Gaulle airport isn’t the easiest place to navigate when you are delirious from jet lag. That and I don’t speak French. The only French speaker on our team had disappeared with everyone else. After another couple minutes, I decided I had some time to make some images. Why not? I had been left alone staring at this baggage claim for the last 10 minutes. I spent the next 15 minutes in a photography induced meditation. Good thing for me the Gendarmerie identified my as a tourist. I could have easily been taken to a dark back room, leaving only my tripod and a trail of lens caps for my friends to find me. Finally, the rest of the team returned. Apparently the doors they exited through were one-way. The team had to circle back. Which, after I made the same trip, wasn’t an easy task.
Workshop: I am still putting the finishing touches on a workshop. The goal is to keep it as inexpensive as I can, and make it as rewarding as possible. In its current state the idea will be to include both field work via a photo-walk, followed by a discussion and lab in the private room at a local wine bar. Wine, cheese, and photography…what could be better than that? I will keep you posted as the details unfold. I have started a discussion over on Facebook. You can find it here. Feel free to join in if you would like to attend. I am looking for content you would like covered as well as some dates that will work for you (sometime in April). If you aren’t one of the 1 in 14 in the world on Facebook, feel free to leave a comment here.
Correction From Yesterday: Longs Peak is not the tallest mountain in Colorado. It is actually Mt. Elbert is. Thanks everyone for the corrections. Still, Longs Peak is a great hike and I encourage you to give it a try!
