Yesterday was a supreme asskicker. I went to bed at about 8pm and woke up at 2:30am and got to work.
The day was spent calling on clients with my last stop being a new one, a referral from an old college buddy whoâ€™s moved out of town.
The new client has several ventures â€“ we tackled his first project for his art gallery for a few hours and later jumped in his car and headed about 40 minutes out of the city to enlighten me to his other venture: professionally trained guard dogs.
The training is also associated with a sport called â€œschuntzhundâ€ (Iâ€™m probably misspelling / mispronouncing it) – which is basically attack training and obedience reworked into a competition sport.
These folks take their dogs realllllllly seriously…. Most of the mutts being imported from Germany or Eastern Europe.
Aside from experiencing something Iâ€™d never seen before â€“ it was extremely interesting chatting Mr. New Client guy during the commute. Heâ€™s a very interesting character with lots of fun stories. Iâ€™m looking forward to working with him and the possibility and probability of adding him to my collection of interesting people I call friends.
It was really too dark to make any images without relying completely on strobe. (ick) And my sleep deprivation also kept me from being as observant as I like to be when Iâ€™m thrown into new and odd situations.
Itâ€™s also the sleep deprivation thatâ€™s keeping me from crafting anything clever and stylized about my experiences.
Iâ€™m too tired to deny blogging.
