WOW! i FINALLY get back to colorado, and its for WORK! BLAH! Colorado is where i want to wind up! Boulder, but id settle for Denver Colorado is where i met my copilot, Gonzo! i did end up having sat/sun free, so went around denver one day, and boulder the next, but i was work bossman, so i wasnt totally free to just wander and do photography... he doesnt understand the ARTEEST's need to wander! lol ;D while @ the austin airport: denver: when we landed we hopped in a rental truck and immediately rode out towards utah. go easy on me and the camera here... i kept getting grumbles when id roll the window down to take photos. apparently someone doesnt understand that shooting thru a dirty filthy window isnt the best thing for optimal image quality. plus, apparently the smoke from the fires in washington are causing a lot of haze(which dropped contrast a lot!) and even my extreme slider happy nature can only fix a jpg so much mebbe ill start shooting raw...? *quirks eyebrow, pinky to mouth* finally made it into Utah. it was a lot of... OMG STEEPNESS! OMG BRAKES! OMG DONT KILL ME! OMG TURN TURN TURN! OMG GUARD RAIL! OMG I SWEAR I WILL HAUNT YOU IF I DIE YOU AND LIVE WHEN WE HIT THE BOTTOM OF THIS CLIFF!!! lol after so many "why do you keep having to roll the window down...?" questions, or passive aggressive huffing and puffing and eye rolling, i took a picture out the front window, and showed him the screen. it worked for a few minutes, before the childlike passive aggressive grumbles started up again, lol! ok, definitely not an amazing photo, but i just loved the pop! lol! our work tour guide for utah... and a day later, we head back towards denver... DENVER! Oh, Frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! a room with a view! opposite the elevators, i loved looking at the way the building over warped the reflections looked up some fun restaurants to try out... settled on one a 25 minute walk north.. we headed out... i thought this street art was... interesting... since it was on the wall of a homeless shelter ok, we got to the restaurant, but it was in the middle of 25-35 year old OUT ON THE TOWN part of town, so it had a TWO HOUR WAIT!!!! sorry, yer foods not THAT good.. and neither is Franklin's BBQ in austin.. slashrant... lol i SO need one of these 29'r offroad tire bikes! it looks so fun! walking to restaurant option #2... a photographer on top of a parking garage, i couldnt tell what she was photographing, but im sure she couldnt see what i saw either... fair is fair! second restaurant... closed. they only serve breakfast and lunch... WHAT?! the baseball field! bossman was getting EXTRA cantankerous since he, for reasons that make no sense to me, hadnt eaten anything all day, so we just stopped at the next restaurant we saw with no wait... it turned out to be some super uppity place. i got passive aggressive grumbles for apparently "forcing" us to eat there. lol $90 later we headed back towards the hotel... the next day some squirrels are born rebels... a sculpture of a naked man, face down in a 2" puddle of water denver art museum building went to washington park, and wandered around a bit. this is my new favorite tree! it was like a small version of home tree! or so it felt to me gooses! geeses! i want my geese to... ... chase gold ducks for...easter...?... wait.. thats not.... to be continued!
