Thank you!  As with many great opportunities, this one started with a conversation with Emmett several years ago about the lack of access for shooting the Burnside Bridge from the east side.  We decided it would be cool to shoot from a boat some time.  Then two years ago this week, we exchanged some messages that condense into:

EMB-you still wanna?
Me-sure, what are doing Saturday?
EMB-nothing for sure
Me-meet you there at 8a
EMB-ok
