For a little while now, I have been somewhat bored with photography. I haven't had my camera on me all the time like I used to, I forget to charge the battery, and I have been missing shots that I later wish I had...so I started shooting with my iPhone again. I forgot how simple and fun it is to use. There is nothing in the way of the shooting experience, you just point it at the picture you want and press the button. I think all creatives go through phases like this, and I know in a few weeks I'll be shooting with my A7ii again, but right now I am having a blast.
So it looks like, at least for now, I am going to be able to keep the Roadie. Financially we weren't sure if I was going to be able to keep it. We have two kids now and things are tight, but we have made it through maternity leave and we didn't need the money, so it looks like, at least for now, the Roadie can stay in the stable. I at least want to finish all the plans I had for it before I sell it. Its a sweet ride and I love that I get to keep taking care of it for a little while longer.
The clouds were starting to look pretty epic, so I mounted my GoPro Session to the front of my Tahoe and let it shoot the sunset as I worked. It came out pretty awesome. I need to do little things like this more.
For my birthday this year, Courtney surprised me and we all went up to Georgetown to ride the train. It was super fun! Its cool having a family of four too, though it is a huge adjustment.

Scott and I install a Rough Country 2.5" lift and 32x11.50 R15 BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A KO2s on his 1996 Jeep Wrangler TJ and then go find a dirt road to get some footage of it with the DJI Mavic.
All of this is in preparation for our expedition to Moab this fall.
