Every year the leaves fall and every year they have to be cleaned out of the gutters. I loathe this chore. It honestly wouldn't be so bad if the ladder wasn't so damn tall and heavy. The entire time I'm wrestling with the ladder as I move it from location to location, desperately hoping I don't make a mistake and put a hole in one of the windows.
It doesn't help when you have to move a camera and a tripod around with you on top of everything else, but it made for a fun video that pushed me to be more creative with my shots and to think outside of the box a little bit.
I also got a lot of practice in with the ladder this time around and feel a lot more confident with it. Doing man work may not always be fun, but it can be extremely rewarding.
