Allen Hoe served as a combat medic during the Vietnam War, and his two sons continued his legacy of service. His oldest son, Nainoa, eventually became a first lieutenant infantry officer with the Army's 3rd Battalion. In January 2005, while leading his men through Mosul, Iraq, Nainoa was killed by sniper fire. He was 27. On Memorial Day that same year, Allen traveled to Washington to honor Nainoa's memory, and it was there that he had a chance encounter a stranger that brought them both unforeseen comfort.

National Geographic named Muskoka Cottage Country in Ontario Canada the '#1 Best Trip of Summer 2011' ( http://travel.nationalgeographic.com/travel/best-trips-summer-2011-photos/ ). I've been lucky enough to visit this incredible series of lakes and islands formed by some of the oldest rock on the planet many times. Our favorite destination is a somewhat remote old school cabin resort that saw it's heyday in the 40s. The Arundel Lodge once bustled with activity serving guests staying in tiny cabins from the main lodge with hearty breakfasts, dinners and activities. Now it sits quietly on a tip of Walkers Point as tourists generally moved away from this style of accommodation. I had the opportunity to capture it and nearby Hardy Lake as the last days of the 2011 summer passed into memory. As luck would have it, the sunsets were spectacular every single night we were there.
This wonderful gushing track by Sigur Ros ( Med sud í eyrum ) just seemed to fit the overwhelming beauty of this place like a glove.
Personal work from few weeks this summer in Michigan's beautiful upper peninsula mostly on The Keweenaw. This was shot only a few days after the first MX2 controller was born so it represents the first tests using it in coordination with with a 6' Stage Zero Timelapse Dolly. I didn't even start looking at this stuff until a couple of months or so ago due to too much going on. Finally releasing it in celebration of the dynamic perception system release! Enjoy and without further ado:
The Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly Kit is now available for pre-order at http://www.dynamicperception.com
