Great, I can see that it's a big pow day and smile about it. 2, 3, or 4 minutes? I can't get into it anymore.
There's probably a few million lifetimes of content on vimeo and youtube that I can't get into anymore, including my own crap.
Honestly, I probably made more watchable content back in the day when I spent most of my time behind the camera. The shooting, the editing, and even the skiing have all become hobbies now, and while it's nice to receive an occasional "like" or compliment on any, I'm perfectly fine with someone giving a "boring" assessment and moving on.
K, full disclosure: As someone who spent the majority of 45 years (so far) skiing the northeast, I will probably never get tired of watching over-the-head powder shots on the selfie-stick.
