things are different here

Leigh, Chip and I just finished our first day of shooting in one of the most remote parts of the country that I think I've been in for a while. Four and a half hours drive from the nearest airport - Minneapolis - and one $211 speeding ticket later - we've arrived in Park Falls Wisconsin, the only town in the region with two stop lights. We're shooting photographs for a print piece for the Flambeau River Paper Company.

Some fun things about a small town:

One beer at Feights bar (and bowling) on Main Street, and we've got the history of the mill down. Met "Doc" who has been bowling at Feights for 43 years.

Tomorrow, we're closing Main Street to roll paper down the street, for an awesome shot. This was decided tonight during dinner. No advance permits, no police or highway department notification, no paperwork. Just a - "yeah, let's do that. Won't be a problem."

We're photographing the mayor (who also works at the mill). No mayoral aides, or staff gatekeepers - "just catch him as he comes off the 3rd shift tomorrow."

And the motel in town has free wifi.
