It's so crazy to me that I'm photographing in one of my favorite places in the world and where I spent a lot of time growing up. Because of this, I didn't want to turn a potential project idea into a quick hit just to fill a hole. Unfortunately, however, day-in-the-life and week-in-the-life approach to stories seem to inevitably be the approach pushed on ideas. I decided I didn't want to subject something so cool to me like Franconia Notch into a quick-hit picture package with a tight, medium, wide, scenic shot...so I began by taking one aspect of a larger idea. Fulfilling my job and dipping a toenail in the project puddle with the first tramway in North America.
