Hasselblad H5D – Stuck in Customs

Walking Home Again

Daily Photo – Walking Home Again

I probably stayed at least four weeks at the amazing Hotel O’lorogio in Venice. It’s a great place and the team there is amazing. Wow, what a fun time! Anyway, there was basically only one way back to the hotel, and it was over a small bridge that gave this view. One evening, I stopped to take my time and capture this scene.

One of the last nights on our moving hotel

Daily Photo – One of the last nights on our moving hotel

This is the train, The Golden Chariot, that we spent 10 days touring Southern India. It was so cool to take Tina and all three kids on such an adventure.

That guy sitting there is “Aman,” one of the crew of the train that absolutely loved Scarlett. She must have been about 6 years old. She called him “Almond.” He kept correcting her with a smile and said, no, my name is “Aman.” Scarlett was like, “No, to me, you are Almond. I shall call you Almond.”

Texture

Daily Photo – Texture

Yesterday’s image, with its added texture, reminded me that I do love to play with that concept. Here’s another favorite image of mine with a bit of enhancement.

Design in Oman

Daily Photo – Design in Oman

Here’s another piece of Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Muscat, Oman. Those guys really do know how to pack detail, pattern, and texture without overloading the eye.

Sunset in Oman

Daily Photo – Sunset in Oman

While we were in Oman I had the Hasselblad H5D with me to play with. It was huge, heavy and a bunch of fun. Here’s one of the shots I captured while seeing what it could do as far as dynamic range goes.

Houseboats

Daily Photo – Houseboats

Here are some cool houseboats in India… what wasn’t so cool is that I think this was the same day I had an ill-fated quadcopter flight that ended in a rather large splash and a never to be seen again device… Note to self… launching and then trying to land on a moving boat isn’t the easiest thing to do.

Peak Autumn

Daily Photo – Peak Autumn

It’s pretty much peak Autumn here in NZ. Normally at this time we’d be gearing up for a workshop but Covid put a stop to that for a couple of years. Things are looking good for next year though and I have a bunch of people all signed up. If you’d like to join them then head over here to find out more! Oh, and if you own one of my NFTs you get a 25% discount on the workshop!

Small Car Exploration

Daily Photo – Small Car Exploration

Next time you are in a big city, hunt down one of these small car tour things. They are great resources for doing some quick exploration if you’ve never been there before. I’ve done them now in a few places such as here in Rome and also in London (which used old Mini Coopers). Sure, it’s not the most luxurious ride you’ll ever have had but you always find out some great nuggets of info from the company running them and you get to find little places you’d not otherwise see.
