Daily Photo – a polar sunbow erupts over an iced volcano
Antarctica – an epic place without scale or relativity. Somewhere on this terrible volcano are the remains of a jetliner, which crashed after taking off from New Zealand on a sight-seeing tour. I was on another plane, a CL-130, when I took this. The “”L”” means it lands on skis. It has no proper windows to speak of, but I managed to befriend the loadmaster who got me into the cockpit for take-off. Quite by chance, there was a polar sunbow that appeared over this most dreadful and awesome of volcanos. There is nothing that erupts new earth as close to the Antarctic pole, so to soar over it in peace was surreal. The white sun seemed to welcome everyone below and above.

Daily Photo – Mandapa
I was having to think back a bit into my travels for an interview I was doing yesterday, and it sent me down a rabbit hole that ended in Bali. Here’s one of the Ritz-Carltons over there and the view I had from my room. Hopefully I can share that interview next week, it was quite fun. 🙂
Daily Photo – Beverly Hills to Century City
This image was from a fun day with some friends a few years back in LA. I was there for some work for a collector of my Fine Art and was able to have an impromptu photo shoot with some friends at the collector’s house. This is Sacha, and over there in the background you can see Century City surrounded by the flatness that is LA. (I also remember we recorded this afternoon in 360 for Passport subscribers, so if you saw that back then you got a peek behind the scenes of this awesome home.)
Daily Photo – Hotel Architects with Benefits
I wonder if the people who design hotels get to go and stay in them when they are complete? Like here… the architect surely planned out the balcony of this room I stayed in to be awesome at sunset, and it was… but did they get to come along at some point and see their vision realised?
Daily Photo – The White Sands
I got a lot of cool shots from our brief stop at White Sands while on the USA bus tour. Most of them involved people in the distance and at least one of those is a top portfolio image for sure… this one, I really do love though. Those patterns in the sand I could look at for hours. Great desktop background for sure. Help yourself 🙂
