2017 and My Projects leaving the Shelf

I have committed to finally getting a few too-long-on-the shelf (or on the floor, in the binder, in my head) projects made… geezus.

Imagine me standing at a six-burner stove and there’s a pot on each one. Plus a few items in the oven. Since I’m only about ten years behind, I figure I have to average about three biggies per year for the next five.

Got it.

A beloved project in the front row is Fauna’s Thread. Pop in to the website or on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook.

The Wonder of Wind Turbines

Yes, some times I get to do cool things. Scouting a wind farm was part of a recent project and – let’s just say, these babies are even cooler up close. I have scouted turbines in the past (from a distance) and they were mesmerizing then, but when you get to be so close and go inside and be on top of one, your appreciation and respect for the scale of them goes to a new level. The latter wasn’t on my bucket list but I summarily added it, and then crossed it off.th_Top of the turbine CRP TRD Jamie Vesay copy 2The engineering and design (inside) is incredible. And yes, the view from the top was crazy. It was a clear sky this day and I could see for about fifty miles in every direction. Safety first, as you can see, climbing helmet, ample harness, and eye gear are all in play.

Love when the light pierces the turbine and blade shadows happen.
