This week involved quite a bit of commotion for me. Sunday night I took my first crack at a hike in South Mountain and took some photos. I can tell you firsthand it’s not a ton of fun to climb loose rocks and gravel up a steep grade with a tripod in hand. Luckily, it paid off and I got a few shots that turned out to be keepers.

Tuesday was a real treat. My buddies in a great band called Tiny Moving Parts came through town and played one hell of a set at The Trunk Space in north Phoenix. I became a tour guide for the evening and snagged a few live shots that turned out pretty well. I even had the opportunity to test my new camera’s video capabilities.
