Ummm….nevermind who is fueling up my copter…nothing to see here…*groan…)

Just a quick update on some more work I did with Greenpeace yesterday. I got to go up in a helicopter (although my dad swears its just a big Mosquito, and I don’t think he was far off the mark) and shoot the continued protest of the #PolarPioneer rig at port in Seattle. The Shell Oil rig is expected to head to Alaska to start drilling by the end of the summer.
