This is the road block in Sedelia Colorado. Only residents were allowed
beyond this point. This is the location for the ABC World News Tonight
live shot ion June 12. The camera man Bob Twes selected the spot because
it was as close to the fire as we could get. We are about 10 miles
north of the fire in fact no smoke can even be seen in our picture or any
other live shot today. The correspondent is Mike ......... and Robert
........ is over on sound. The bottom picture is Cactus Man he is my
little mascot at least for this year. He will be popping up in pictures
every now and then. It is fairly difficult to take pictures of myself
so he is my substitute.
The next day we set up for the live shot at Perry Park. Perry park
is on County road 133 about half way between Denver and Colorado springs.
We were no closer to the fire here at least it was a different location.
There are 2 camera crews here this time. One crew is responsible
for the live shot and the other shot video earlier today to use in the package
tape piece. It was fairly windy and Anne is holding the white
scrim and her crew ...... and ........ are holding the
black scrim. The correspondent is now Bill Reddicer.
The next morning I was up to Lake George Colorado. We did a Good Morning
America shot here. I was still the uplink but the crew was new and
it is so cold and early for me in the morning I don't even remember who the
correspondent was. This I think is a Humming Bird moth. This
one wanted to run audio and parked on the sound mixer all morning, His
brother was with us also but spent the entire morning consumed with the traditional
role of a moth and dillegently attacked our lights all night.
