Strangely, I haven’t flown since early April. So this trip to Palm Springs was both a little foreign and a little familiar. Like normal, I chose to sleep instead of packing, so the morning of my flight I packed like a mad woman, filling my suitcase with random outfits and doodads. I’d be shooting in [...]
I’ll start my series of blog posts of my most recent trip to Vancouver with the story of how I left. I woke up fresh and well-rested in my room at the Pinnacle Hotel in North Vancouver. As was my custom, I pulled opened the curtains and slid open the door to my balcony. Breathe. [...]
