#FAMILY FRIDAY -- The Colorado River

#FAMILY FRIDAY

The Colorado River

Reminiscing over another epic outing I was lucky enough to take with my family.  This time it was exploring the mighty Colorado River on a private guided raft tour.  We had probably the coolest lunch break of my life on the side of the river. 

The views, nature and the feeling of being an ant amongst giants was humbling and like nothing else we’ve done.  Another life experience on the bucket list crossed off! Can’t wait to see what’s next.

A Day in Detroit - Taking in the Motor City - Backstage Pass Vlog

Backstage Pass – A Day in the Motor City

Today’s Vlog is a bit more fun and a bit less business.  After the conference, I went on an adventure around Detroit to see the sights, and was definitely not disappointed.  First stop, The Heidelberg Project.  This is a somewhat crazy and wonderful outdoor expression of art in the middle of the city.  It has an almost post-apocalyptic feel to it.  I dug the madness of it all.  Next, I saw the murals all around the Eastern Market.  As a lot of you know, I’m a huge fan of street are and this was like nothing I had seen before.  Definitely recommend a visit.  Then onto Russell Street, which was a lovely tribute to creators and to the people of Detroit. 

And lastly, I finished up my excursion riding The People Mover, where I got to see the whole shebang.  What an explosion of creativity.  My kind of place.  I couldn’t have had a better time in a better city.  Thank you Detroit!  Can’t wait to come back next year, when hopefully it’s a tad warmer. 

Thanks for watching and for being part of the rebellion....

The Weird & Wonderful of Hudson NY - Pete Lorimer Vlog #64

My journey around the United States this week, shooting a show for TV, has led us to a truly unique spot. This week we are in Hudson in upstate New York which is a sleepy little enclave of the N.E. with a heavy concentration of creative types.  Home to some of the most well-known artists, designers, sculptors and restauranteurs that US has to offer.

With what little time I have off I love to Vlog, so here is episode #64 of The Peter Lorimer Vlog where you will see some fab drone footage I shot with my Spark and also you will get to meet a couple of the colorful characters of this charming upstate town where time stood still  

It is the middle of Winter and BOY was it cold, but there was something strangely familiar to me about the town as it reminded me of so many of the North Yorkshire towns I grew up near when I was a boy.

So wrap up warm, put on your snow boots and come with me for a journey through some real Americana as we spend a little time in the perfectly exquisite Hudson in upstate New York.

TAKING NYC - The TV Show Continues in New York | Pete Lorimer Vlog #63 | Travel & Vlogging

This week the circus rolled into town in the buzzing metropolis of New York City. There is nowhere quite like this town and in what little time I had off from shooting the show I managed to grab some majorly touristy moments in The Big Apple. I have only spent a couple of days or so in NY before but this time I got to hang for a whole week and visit a spot I have never been to before.... Brooklyn!!

Thanks for watching......and enjoy!

Cheers
Pete
