Daily Photo – Exploring the Future (and fear of the new)
I think it’s probably obvious to those who read this blog, even occasionally, that I’m delving deep into NFTs. One of the more interesting aspects of the whole experience has been the negativity towards them from some people. It reminds me a lot of the negative feedback I was getting in the early stages of my journey into HDR photography. Which is great as that turned out not too bad a life choice! 🙂 Here’s one of those early HDR examples from back in 2008. Fourteen years! Yikes!
Daily Photo – Prambanan, Indonesia
A huge storm was washing over Java just as I arrived here at Prambanan just outside of Yogyakarta in Indonesia. One thing I’ve come to know about big storms in the late afternoon: if you’re patient, you may end up with a crazy sunset. It rarely happens, but if the sun dips below the clouds, you get incalculable layers of crepuscular light. This is an 8th-century Hindu temple that is an expression of God as the Creator, Preserver, and Destroyer (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, for those of you that know the Marvel superhero awesome gods of India). The complex is actually quite huge, second only to Angkor Wat, and has 240 temple structures. Most were destroyed in Earthquakes, but they are slowly being rebuilt.

Here’s the extended cut of the AiVATAR promo… some pretty crazy AI in here! Check out the NFT drop details over on the main site.

Daily Photo – Abandoned shipyard in Buenos Aires
This is one of the most dangerous areas of Buenos Aires. I didn’t find that out until a lady came up and grabbed me and said I was lucky to still be alive. I’ve never really gotten into trouble in any country like that before, but I’ve probably just been really fortunate… or maybe good karma!
Great Podcast with Cappo about Yoga
I found this one very enjoyable! 🙂
Daily Photo – New York Reimagined
This is one of my very first HDR photos that became quite popular. I recently re-did it for a parallel-universe version. This one has more of a film-look. I’m not saying it’s better or worse, just different. I actually didn’t go back to all the original RAW files but instead did a re-edit of the final rendered photo from before.
Passport Iceland Sunday!
Today if you’re a Passport Member, we take another trip back to Iceland! Enjoy!
This was a very fun one to work on and I hope you enjoy it!
Daily Photo – The Rugged Coast of Iceland
Here is another recent Iceland Edit. These are some of the hardest rocks in the world to walk on. Also, if you lose your footing and fall, you’re going to end getting sliced into a thousand pieces because the edges are like glass. I almost went out a little further on the rock, but I figured that if I slipped and fell, no one would find my body for ages. Either way, if you’re a Passport Member, you can see the edit for that here!
Daily Photo – Beautiful Sunset in Yellowstone
I was out in Yellowstone all by myself on a hike to get this shot. It probably wasn’t the smartest thing in the world because there could have been a grizzly bear or something! But, I figured I had a tripod so that I would have been perfectly fine defending myself.
