Just why is it that I don’t post daily around here? The simple answer is, because of my work as a live audio engineer. This extends to lighting and video work as well and with this work comes a wildly unpredictable schedule. There is no predictable 9-5 to be found here, some days start at 6am, others at 5pm. Some events are in the morning, others go late into the night and I don’t see the door of my apartment till the sun is rising. The rest of the time is spent handling office work, booking new events, doing prep work for upcoming ones, and other odd and ends of day to day busy work. It’s rewarding in that I get to work with something I do love to do but it is equally exhausting and time consuming. I do all I can to take time out to sneak in a photograph here and there and write for future articles here on 50ft but some days when I have time off all I can do is want to calmly sit in a dimly lit room with a record on and relax.
That said, my goal this year is to take fiftyfootshadows to a new level where it is able to help support itself to the point where I can afford to take more time to focus on adding new content. It is an uphill battle but I have my heart set on making this a landmark year for fiftyfootshadows and what you have come to expect to find here up to now. This image is from a recent job at a college theater, their aging system has a few kinks to work around but I make the best of it.
