One of Salt Lake's most iconic rails is this 21-stair down with donkey known formally as the East High Rail. It spills out at intersection of 2 main thoroughfares through the east side of town and it's perhaps this visibility that's contributed most to its seminal status. Seth Huot's backside lip in 2002 was a watershed moment for this spot and a highlight of his part in Kingpin's HAPPY HOUR. I'm not sure what lead me to the decision to cross the street and shoot from this backed-off perspective, but I'm sure glad I did. The crowd gathered probably lead to this decision, with the thinking being I would just get out of the chaos. But years later the crowd and chaos of traffic, multiple filmers (a rarity in this era) and most of all the peanut gallery -- J2, Jeff Anderson, Matty Ryan, Blotto, some high school kids (one who looks strikingly like Chris Englesman) who probably just got out after-school detention, a guy on a mt. bike and of course Whitey and Brad on the 16mm cameras. It perfectly captured what it was like cruising around Salt Lake in that era, a golden era if there ever was one, and perfectly time-stamped with the 2002 Olympic banners hanging from every light post.
