Here’s an image from just behind my place in Queenstown while I was having a bit of fun upon first receiving the Hasselblad X1D a few years back…

Thinking about the next drop

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.)

Hasselblad Madness

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!

Nice Fishing

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?

The Colors of Tokyo

Daily Photo – The Colors of Tokyo

I love the cool, blues and greens of Tokyo at night. They look great alone, but things really pop when mixed with the orange of the Tokyo Tower.

Exploring Tibidabo

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.

Milan Styles

I was looking back through my photos from Milan recently and it served as a good reminder of just how much styles can change. Below you’ll find 2 images from my trips to Milan, one from 2006 and one from 2017. Ahhh… 2017, the good old days when travel was easy…
2006
The Airy Doom of the Duomo The most difficult thing about this shot was hiding my tripod from the security guards.  The second hardest thing was the HDR processing from this shot melting my CPU core.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Back To The Duomo In Milan
Just a bit different, eh?

The Basilica de la Sagrada Familia, Spain

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.

When things work out with travel in and out of NZ task 1 is get back to the US to see the family… task 2: Get to Japan. Assuming they are open!

Kyoto Swimparty

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!
