I love this photo! Taken at dusk with a Canon Rebel on auto (‘cuz I’m fancy like that). It’s the top of the Old Town Transit Center on Main Street in Park City.
Trying to get this posted before midnight so it still counts for my 365 day challenge. I’m getting into a groove, though… I just need to get started earlier in the day to make sure that I don’t cop out with a photo and a few words when I get tired or busy. Like tonight.
I’m still in the process of uploading photos to Flickr from the last couple days. That includes weeding through the duplicates, tagging them, labeling them, etc. I didn’t take photos of even half the stuff I wanted to, partially because my camera is still new and it was snowing most of the time and I didn’t want to get water stains all over the lens. Marie had my point and shoot camera for the day and she caught some great photos as well. I still need to empty that memory card. Thanks for being patient with my procrastination.
I am home now from my second shift at the Sundance Screening Room, which was fairly uneventful. I saw two films today: Winter’s Bone and Please Give, both of which I highly recommend.
Yesterday I drove up to Park City with my friend Marie, and the day was filled with a lot of starts and stops and interesting things and disappointing things and SNOW and then a treacherous white-knuckle drive home that thankfully ended safely. I want to spend more time sharing the details of the last two days, but I am beat. I have a lot to do tomorrow so I can’t afford to skimp on the sleep tonight. My eyes are dry and heavy. My teeth are brushed. My face is washed.
What I’m trying to say is… good night! I’m sure that coffee in the morning will help me recall my weekend adventures in a much more clever and coherent way than I am able to right now.
CLEVER, can I just say that? S’no? Snow? Heh heh…
The excitement of my evening shift for the festival was dominated by the weather. It, uh, sucked. The road that leads into Sundance Canyon was closed for an hour or so shortly before I arrived because of snowfall and dangerous conditions and accidents. Hooray! It was open when I got there, but a cop stationed with flashing lights at the mouth of the canyon, right by the huge “snow tires/chains/4-wheel drive required” sign, stopped me to check. I have a little all-wheel drive Subaru (with relatively new tires, thank the flying spaghetti monster) so I was permitted to pass.
I took it slow and made it safely. The resort was blanketed in snow and totally gorgeous. Night skiing is new this year, so there were a lot of skiiers still on the mountain and clomping out in the parking lot. My cell phone reception sucked almost as much as the weather, possibly due in part to the weather, so I didn’t get to send the cell phone photos I took. But Twitpic is working, so yay for that! I did upload some photos to Flickr.
I didn’t end up watching much of either movie last night, but got to know the new volunteers and re-learned a little about people I worked with last year. I got my white volunteer jacket (which I have NOT yet dirtied), which fits for the most part.
The biggest adventure started after my shift ended at 10:30. I don’t have time to tell it in full right now because I’m supposed to meet my friend Marie and drive up to Park City in a little bit. But I didn’t get home until almost 1:30am. And it involved a little bit of this. Oooo, teaser!
