Madagascar – Stuck in Customs

Cute Kid on the Beach in Madagascar

Daily Photo – Cute Kid on the Beach in Madagascar

The kids along the beach there were totally incredible! They loved seeing someone with a camera and would not stop posing. The kids reminded me a lot of my daughter Scarlett… who sees a camera then just starts performing left and right. I don’t know where certain kids get that from, but I think it’s amazing. I see a lot of that from “grown-ups” at Burning Man who are able to re-engage their inner child.

Returning From Fishing

Daily Photo – Returning From Fishing

About the middle of the day everyone starts bringing in their boats with their morning catches here on the beach on Madagascar. It’s cool to see all these guys carrying the boat while almost running full speed. I would have asked to help but they could probably just look me up and down and know I was useless.

Mom and Baby Elephant

Travel Photography Tutorial

If you haven’t gotten my New Tutorial, which is currently on sale, then you’re really missing out! Here’s a trailer for it:

Daily Photo – Mom and Baby Elephant

I don’t know if that’s a mom or dad. I’m just assuming it’s a mom because, if I were a baby, I’d feel like my mom is more likely to take care of me while dad is off rolling around in some mud pit with his friends. You can see some of this footage in the video above!

Sassy kids in Madagascar

More Duncan for ya!

And here’s yet another fun episode with Duncan!

Daily Photo – Sassy kids in Madagascar

These kids were posing machines. They didn’t know have like one or two poses – there were hundreds! I could barely keep up. They also loved seeing the photos when they were finished as well… I kind of wish I had a Polaroid camera that could give them instant printouts.

Along the beach in Madagascar

Daily Photo – Along the beach in Madagascar

Almost every day in Madagascar, I went out on a jog up and down the beach. This was during a period when my luggage was lost, which meant I didn’t have my big boy camera. Oh well! No worries… I made it a challenge for myself to use my Pixel phone as much as a good. This is one of the many fun photos I got while working the scene up and down the beach.

Kids with Attitude in Madagascar

Daily Photo – Kids with Attitude in Madagascar

When I say they have “attitude,” I mean it in the coolest way. You know how some kids just kind of have this undeniable presence? Yeah, a bunch of these kids did. And, somehow, they knew just how to pose like they were Instagram Influencers or something!

Along the Beachfront

Daily Photo – Along the Beachfront

While in Madagascar, we spent quite a few days staying on the beach in Morondava. Every day, we’d see all sorts of local people walking up and down the beach, mostly engaged in fish-related activities. Late one day, while out preparing to take sunset photos, I saw this mom with her kids walking back home. I had on my Bose headphones, so I put it on the heads of her kids to dance while I took mom’s photo.

Selling Typewriters

Reality as it is?

One of my good friends that is obsessed with reality shared this with me… I thought it was beyond interesting.

Daily Photo – Selling Typewriters

There is a huge set of stairs in Antananarivo that connect the lower part of the city to the upper part. All along both sides are people selling pretty much anything you can imagine. It’s mostly the sort of stuff people in the west would consider antiques. But people here actually still use this stuff. It’s both strange and not-strange. The whole thing is a bit of an anachronism because people that are selling this stuff are always behind the tables on their smartphones.

Three Photographers from Madagascar

Tesla Truck Testing

They released a new video to see how tough to new Tesla truck is actual street conditions. Note that even though this is silly, I actually do want one!

First real structural integrity test on real condition for the Tesla cybertruck was successful. No scratches observed. from funny

Daily Photo – Three Photographers from Madagascar

I was walking around with my friend Rene and we came across these three girls who were out taking photos. It was actually the very first DSLR I saw while there, and I was really surprised. They supposedly came from a different part of Madagascar because of their face paint. Also, they didn’t speak any English so it was really quite hard to communicate! But I thought they looked cool! By the way, this is a shot with my Pixel 3 phone. Not bad, eh?

Fixing Mobile Phones in Madagascar

Street Photography in the new Tutorial!

If you have the new photography tutorial I released a few days ago, then you’ll really love the lessons about People and Street Photography. In those, you get to see how I edited this photo! Here’s a promo of the new tutorial!

Daily Photo – Fixing Mobile Phones in Madagascar

Here’s one of my favorite “street” photos from Madagascar. There are all kinds of colorful little shops and interesting people in every nook and cranny. I was particularly taken with this guy who would spend all day fixing the array of mobile phones in front of him.
