pketron I find it hard to drive anywhere in Jackson Hole because I'm compelled to stop every 50 feet to take photos. 11h

pketron After my quick visit to Salt Lake City, I drove up to spend the weekend in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. @tonycross showed me one of the best spots in town, Persephone Bakery. I wish I could take this wall display home with me. 1d

pketron It was so fun to be able to speak on a panel at @AltSummit this year with @ohhappyday @luckyandi and @engagedandinspired. Thanks to those of you who came and listened, asked questions, and contributed to conversation. Best of luck out there! 3d

pketron One thing I've learned during my solo travels is that sometimes you want a person in your photo and no one else is around so that person has to be you. In this particular situation, I would've felt terrible sending anyone else out barefoot into the freezing ankle-deep salt water - it was something that even I had to psych myself up for.

What I was dreading most was the cold, but in the end, it was the sharpness of the salt crust below the water that did me in. The frigid water actually helped numb my feet to the pain. The three separate walks I did were basically like the world's most painful exfoliating treatment. Aside from the fact that, as it was happening, it felt like the soles of my feet were bleeding, it basically now feels like I had a paraffin wax treatment.

To take this shot, I had my iPhone 6+ set up on a tiny Gorillapod and used the interval timer on the Gorillacam app. Beside it, my DSLR was set up on a full-sized tripod. Both were set to take a photo every second as I stepped gingerly through the water.

Fun fact: the last time I was here (at the end of spring a few years ago), most of this area was dry salt. Check my Instagram map for the other images if you're interested.

pketron One of my favorite things about visiting new cities is seeing buildings that I've never seen before. The weird thing that happened today was that I walked into the SLC library and it was eerily similar to the Vancouver Public Library in design. A little bit of research taught me that the architect, Moshe Safdie, is behind both designs, as well as the design of many buildings around the world that have been calling to me. +1 knowledge points. File away under: Architects I Admire. 5d

pketron Thank you to those of you who were able to make it to my talk at the San Francisco Apple Store the other day. I appreciate the support, feedback, and questions! It's been great being a part of Apple's #startsomethingnew campaign. If you're interested in reading more, there's a link to a Wired article in my profile. Don't miss my images in the slideshow and see if you can spot the typo in one of the captions. 1w

pketron San Francisco! A reminder:

As part of Apple's #startsomethingnew campaign, I will be leading a little workshop at the Stockton Street Apple Store tomorrow 1/14/15 at 6pm. I'll be talking a little about my story, my photography, the hardware and software I use to create my images, and how to find inspiration around you. I would love it if you came. Registration is requested, though not required, at apple.com/sanfrancisco (also linked from my profile).

pketron The transmission parts for @Chevrolet's brand new Volt are assembled in this clean room. It's supposedly the cleanest room in existence in any GM factory and you have to walk through an air shower upon entrance to avoid bringing in excess dust particles that could affect engine performance. Workers in white lab coats were certainly not what I expected to find in an automotive plant. #nextgenvolt

pketron The reason I was in Detroit for a whirlwind 30 hours was for the announcement of the new @Chevrolet Volt. Leave it to me to find symmetry and patterns at an auto show. I had to push past throngs of excited media to get close to the #nextgenvolt. I was fortunate enough to be able to speak to the engineers who worked hard on improving the electric driving range of the car and to the designers who help to incorporate these lightweight materials into the new sleek design. These details are #sponsored 2w
  •   stevereyes247 Been following the NextGenVolt. I'll be first in line.... Iridescent Pearl White for me....a much more polished vehicle and very sharp 2w

pketron I may have taken a slight detour upon landing in Detroit today so that I could see this tunnel. It rivals the neon light tunnel at Chicago O'Hare in awesomeness. 2w
