Daily Photo – Thinking about the next drop
I’ve some cool projects in the works which have been a lot of fun to work on and some are nearing completion, so it’s time to start thinking about what comes next. Maybe it’s time for a new photography NFT drop… this image from Italy would definitely be in contention for that. (It’s also one of my favorite shots captured on the Hasselblad medium format.)
Daily Photo – Hasselblad Madness
I was reminded when looking at today’s photo that back in 2017 I took the Hasselblad X1D to Burning Man… I’m pretty careful with cameras out there, or at least I’ve worked out some techniques to minimise the damage over the years but it was still, in hindsight, probably not a smart move. Still, not the worst thing I ever did to a Hasselblad, that’s a story for another day!
Daily Photo – Nice Fishing
This is the beach in Nice, France and it seems to me to be one of the worst places to try and fish… well, obviously from a scenic point of view it’s a lovely place to fish but busy, noisy, filled with the remnants of the day’s sunbathers. If you were a fish would you choose here or just along the coast?
Daily Photo – Exploring Tibidabo
It’s not often that people pair churches with amusement parks. Maybe that is the way forward for religion though given numbers are dropping all over the place. Lure in the kids…
Speaking of Tibidabo it reminds me of Friends, which reminds me of my Russian friend Olya who learned a lot of her English (and cultural knowledge of America) from watching Friends back when she lived in Russia.
Daily Photo – The Basilica de la Sagrada Familia, Spain
Gaudi’s masterpiece here in Barcelona is probably the most stunning religious structure I’ve ever been inside. I was lucky and I was given special access to a few areas only the Pope gets to visit. He has like is own “Papal Balcony” where he can kind of lord over the congregation. I suppose if you’re the Pope, you just get anything you want. You’re like, hey, I want my own balcony, and then the church just kinda does it for you. This cathedral broke ground way back in 1882 and they are still working on it. It’s probably taking them a while to complete this amazing behemoth because the Spanish have four-hour lunches.

Daily Photo – Kyoto Swimparty
I’m usually too busy in these cities to go for a swim, since I’m running around with my hair on fire taking photos. I often think, gee willickers, I should really have a swim and a relax. But I almost never do! If I have a little extra time, I try to hit the gym, which I enjoy more than swimming. Now that I think about it, I don’t really like swimming much at all. But I do like playing in the pool with my kids!
