Hectic. Simply hectic.
I've been back in Denver for a while.
Last Thursday I managed to do a winter climb of Mt. Princeton. It took a grueling six hours to summit. The trail past 11,500 ft. was so icy that I managed to about die when I slipped down the trail almost over a ledge to a steep scree field. I essentially punched the ground so hard that my fist was lodged into the sheet of ice to stop my sliding. Scary, but not the epinephrine rush that I'm looking for.
Driving back on Monday, I saw the Milky Way belting over through the sky and above Mt. Princeton, and managed to drive down a CR and find a pull off to snap a few exposures. Of course, it's so cold up in the mountains at night, and my fingers were numb enough from the cold that when I slammed my car door to run over to take pictures, I slammed my finger in the door. It was cold enough that I didn't realize it till I was back on the highway, and blood was trickling down the steering wheel. Awesome.

It has been a while since I've really been interacting with anyone or anything on here. My academics were substantially more difficult this past semester, and will be even worse next semester.
I also am working as a photojournalist for a newspaper. It all adds up.

Anyhow, I noticed I had recently passed my fourth anniversary with dA, and in conjunction with that wanted to wish everyone a happy holiday season.  
so there i was, drinking coffee at 11pm and writing in my journal (my real one. not the dA journal) when I hear rubber screeching on the pavement outside in harmony with a car horn. i stop writing when the horn doesn't cease after a couple seconds. by the time my ears are fully focused on the noises outside on 14th avenue, i can hear a woman screaming.

i ran to my window (which my room is downstairs, so my view is limited) and see two cars smashed together and some smoke coming out of one. i sprint upstairs to get a better view and to check if anyone is hurt. there are two women outside the cars screaming, and I hear "call 911" being shouted by other people in the dark (which my father was already doing).
I can't see anyone still trapped in the cars, so I sprint back downstairs, grab my camera and run outside.

two things:
1. it's very difficult to focus when your hands are shaking.
2. it's difficult to adjust in camera settings when your hands are shaking.

terrifying, it is, taking pictures of an accident, not knowing if your about to see paramedics deal with some crazy shit (which, no one was seriously injured in this accident tonight, thankfully), hearing screaming, etc.

im not even going to look at the shots I got from tonight, rather drink some more coffee and wonder what the real photojournalists go through with every story they shoot.
(edit: 20 minutes and four cups of coffee later I couldn't resist)
