I turned 44 yesterday

Leaf peeping via webcam helps us prep for next shoot

Boston University via webcam today showing ample green foliage

I suddenly need to go back to Boston before the leaves change to get some pick up shots for our documentary, Gen Silent. My shots must match what we shot this spring. No fall colors!

The ticket is in hand for October 6th and locals say the odds are in my favor (thanks for the tweets about fall colors!) However, everything is extra expensive that week so I can tell that it is the week that the tourism industry is betting that everything will be changing already.

Our pre-production has become leaf-peeping via webcam: Will I make it? It's the only time in my life I don't want to be shooting beautiful fall colors! I'll be a continuity pickle! Like eating a dill and a bread and butter in the same bite. :0

The LA house is where the "2" is on this map

View Los Angeles area fires: Mount Wilson, La Canada Flintridge, Altadena, La Crescenta, Glendale, Pasadena, Acton, Agua Dulce in a larger map

The fire is many miles and strip malls away. We are up in SF renting out the LA place. It is very small and cute. Here's a pic of it with Joe in his baker outfit getting ready for the kids at Halloween, lighting candles everywhere and...oh, maybe not this pic.
