Confederation Bridge - 6th July 2013 - Border of NB and PEI

My first time on the island of Prince Edward - so I had to stop and take photos of the longest bridge over ice covered waters. *when it was built = 1997  - Its 12.9km span connects two provinces and is rarely closed, even in the winter. (Unless it's really windy, and you're a tall truck - then you've gotta wait)

Big/small - 28th March 2012 - Lake arrowhead conference centre, LA.

Ruben Sluijter and Garrett Brown compete to see who can get their camera higher...

capping off an amazing 5-days of learning steadicam from both the inventor - and a bunch of talented operators.

I may not have ended up taking the skills anywhere professionally, but it sure was fun - and gave me a little more insight into those who choose to point a camera for a living.
