Nikon D3X – Stuck in Customs

Daily Photo – the fog you can only see through from above

Yosemite is a wonderful place for photography, and it’s one of those places that is filled with an intimidating and rich photographic history. I don’t even understand how Ansel Adams did it back in the day; but I have a sense of it, I suppose. So this is un-Yosemite in a way. I aimed away from Yosemite, to all the little mountains that walk up to the great park, and I embraced all the color that I felt flowing inwards.

when you realize the sun never really went down

Daily Photo – when you realize the sun never really went down

Around the middle of the summer, the sun never goes down in Iceland. I spend the days sleeping in empty schoolhouses and the evenings lost in song and mystery.

This was taken around 3 AM when everything seems dreamy and possible. I would hike and explore all night long. About this time each evening, after going ages without seeing a human, after going ages listening to strange ambient music, everything became wonderfully strange. Sometimes I would create things like this, and I was convinced (and still am) that it was not really me.

Chicago from the Archives

Daily Photo – Chicago from the Archives

Because it’s very much on my mind at the moment, here’s another from Chicago. It goes on for what seems like forever… quite symmetrical too once you get out of the centre it seems.

Chicago

Daily Photo – Chicago

Wrapping up my short stay in Chicago shortly where I’ve been seeing family and friends for the first time in years which has been awesome. I thought about staying out in the hotel on this pier while here where they’ve been wise to point all the rooms away from the water purification plant. Definitely wouldn’t have been the most scenic hotel room view in the world!

Daily Photo – Unknown China

Here’s another of those images I stumbled across yesterday. This one is maybe from China. I don’t actually remember taking it, so maybe it’s somewhere completely different! If you recognize it, you know where the comments are. 🙂

Found Kyoto

Daily Photo – Found Kyoto

I just stumbled across a few images from Asia that I don’t think I’ve shared before. It’s quite awesome when that happens, although not quite as awesome as finding some money in that jacket you haven’t worn in a while. That’s always a good excuse to go spend your newfound wealth on something super unhealthy. Mmmm… donuts…

Ibiza Sunset

Daily Photo – Ibiza Sunset

I think that it’s likely that when most people think of Ibiza they think of drinking, dancing and generally craziness. What they maybe don’t realise is that the island has some fantastically character filled coastline. Here’s a little chunk of it at sunset.
