A couple of years ago, my friend Kelly and I went on a trip to the Pacific Northwest, more specifically Seattle area and Vancouver. It was my first time visiting Seattle so I was super excited to visit. We were there mostly for the tulip festival but also to check out the sites. Obviously we went to Pike Place, the little park area around the Space Needle, Kerry Park, the usual stuff you do in Seattle. And y’all know that whenever I travel anywhere, I always try to make a vlog. This trip was no exception. I had a blast and wanted to share that with you but also remember it for myself in the future. So here’s the video in case you missed it.
Well something super awesome happened. The Weather Channel contacted me and asked if they could use some of that video footage for their BRB video on the Seattle gum wall. How cool is that? As soon as they mentioned BRB, I knew right way the videos they were talking about. I’ve watched so many of those 30 second videos on Facebook on places that I’ve been to or want to travel to. I was honored that they even contacted me. The crazy part was that they used the part of me blowing the bubble gum bubble! I thought they were just going to use the footage of the gum wall itself. I was so surprised when I saw my big face on the screen. LOL. So cool.
Click on the image blow to see the video.
If you ask me. The best part of the whole thing is the caption that they put under me. LOL. Anyways, I was super excited to be a part of it. The most surprising part was that they got it all done so fast. It took them less than a day to do. Or at least from the point they contacted me.
Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend. This image was shot last fall. See the other version of this same sunrise here.
I met up with my friend Sara to take this image. She told she had never been to DC for sunrise and we immediately had to change that. So the next morning we met up super early in the morning. I remember walking around the National Mall with her and we were talking about how it was so nice to be taking pictures. But one of the best parts was that you’re up so early in the morning that no one else is really awake. You have so much time to accomplish other things before even having to worry about calling anyone or making any kind of appointments. Just a nice way to start your morning by walking around and doing something creative. Growing up, I was never an early bird. But now that I’ve been waking up for sunrise images for the past 6 years that I can’t help but wake up early now. Even without an alarm.
In other news, I’ve been thinking lately that I need to make an updated youtube video. What do you think? It’s been a while since I’ve talked about my gear. I’ve uploaded quite a few videos about new gear that I’ve bought but those were mostly first impression/unboxings. Never really gave my opinion on what I think about the equipment now. Also, I’ve gotten a few things without tell you guys as well too. So would you be interested in an updated gear video? I think it’d be fun. Let me know if you have any specific questions and I’ll try to add that into the video as well.
To be honest, it may be another week or two until I actually make it. I have another video in the works before that one. You’re going to LOVE it.
