Over Spring Break my friend and commercial photography grad school classmate Scott Marx and I headed up to the cabin for a few days of good food, wine, and shootin’ stuff.
Fortunately Scott took care of provisions, so the food and drink was top-notch. Some of the finest dining the cabin has seen. As for the green trees and the hellish red glow under the porch, I was in Marcy Nighswander’s Small Systems Lighting class and was geeking out on “painting” everything with strobes and gels. I always knew there was something evil lurking under that porch, so this is fitting.
Once we figured out which parts go with which percolator (and how to use a percolator in the first place) the coffee we brewed was darn tasty!
I’d planned to take Scott to Blackwater Falls, but on a whim we explored the park a bit more and found Elakala Falls, which turned out to be a very beautiful little treat.
Oh, about the “shootin stuff” thing: at some point we got out my dad’s 22 pistol and were looking for inanimate objects to shoot. I spied a can of blaze orange spray paint in one of Scott’s bags, so I suggested we give it a try.
I’d been careful to make sure my expensive camera was outside of the immediate blast zone. I had not, as the video shows, taken the prevailing wind patterns into consideration. Oopsie.
