Sony A7R 2 – Stuck in Customs

Lee in a Museum

Daily Photo – Lee in a Museum

I was with my friend Lee in some museum in Dusseldorf. I can’t quite remember the name of it, but a lot of it was interactive. Well, interactive is maybe too strong of a word. And maybe so is art. Anyway, this was apparently some kind of display where you can sit down in the chair. I thought it looked very Lee-like, so I asked him to sit down for a quick photo.

Street Shooting in Osaka

London Real Documentary

Here’s a great doco about Brian Rose taking Ayuasca and how it changed him… I haven’t tried the full thing yet, but I have tried the active molecule DMT about 15 times… so… yeah, I get it! ๐Ÿ™‚

You can watch for free if you put in your email on his website. Check it out here.

These two guys were totally fun and cool! They were out in the streets trying to get people to come into their restaurant and acting totally crazy. I like that they took their job so seriously, and not seriously at all. They were really happy to ham it up in front of the camera. I got a lot of shots if that, but then I sneaked back by at another time to get them in their more natural element.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Daily Photo – San Juan, Puerto Rico

The old town area of San Juan is perfect for capturing photos at night. I heard the area might be a bit dangerous, but I did not encounter any of that. Maybe I was lucky or something! Anyway, I spent a few hours one evening walking up and down most of the streets to explore the place while capturing a few photos like this one.

The Hagia Sophia at night

Funny AVN Video

I’m not even sure how stumbled upon this… well probably Reddit, but it’s quite a crazy comedy interview video! (Maybe not for an office environment :D)

Daily Photo – The Hagia Sophia at night

I had a local friend from Istanbul take me to a cool rooftop restaurant for dinner one evening. We sat up there and dined through sunset and watched the Hagia Sophia as all the lights started to pop on. When the lights were just about perfect, I jumped up, set up the tripod, and grabbed this shot. If you have a chance to go to Istanbul, I definitely recommend it.

Daily Photo – New York Remake

Here’s a new interpretation of my recent photo from New York City. I was invited to do a proposal for Vanity Fair for the Oscars and this was one of the submissions. I’m writing this blog post waaaay ahead of time, so I suppose we’ll see if this one gets selected! ๐Ÿ™‚

Katie Ann on the Beach

Jim Carrey Graduation Speech

One of the best I’ve heard!

Daily Photo – Katie Ann on the Beach

While in Fort Lauderdale, I was taking a ton of beach photos but they started to get a little boring. They looked pretty much like every other beach shot, especially during the day time. So I decided to invite over one of my model-friends, Katie Ann to do a bit of posing.

Beautiful Colors of New Zealand

Laminar Flow Water

We’ll here’s something that’s bizarrely cool! And I learned it’s called Laminar Flow. (Open the vid to see it.)

Daily Photo – Beautiful Colors of New Zealand

Here is a view of the Southern Alps here in Queenstown in the middle of summer. You can see a little bit of snow on The Remarkables in the background, but it really doesn’t snow at all here in the summer. Maybe there’s an occasional swell or a cold night where a bit collects on the top of the peaks. But the mountains come alive with different colors when everything starts to grow in the Spring and Summer. There’s also a lot of great magic mushrooms that grow around here.

Taking photos at The Vessel

Video about psychedelics

If you know, then you know! Here’s a little video I saw on Reddit that you might find informative. If you want to know more, I recommend “How to Change Your Mind” by Michael Pollan.

The Case for Making Psychedelics Legal from DMT

Daily Photo – Taking photos at The Vessel

I was trying to be the last one in The Vessel to get some of these cool dusk shots after the sun set. I like to do this one simple trick where you simply put the camera on the ground (with a wide-angle lens) and shoot straight up in the air with a timer on. I wanted to set it right where that guy was standing… so, while I was waiting for him to move, I decided to take a photo!

Into the White Sands

Sea Cucumbers

I don’t know how I came across this, but I found this short video about Sea Cucumbers to be rather fascinating!

Daily Photo – Into the White Sands

On the way to the photo walk in Phoenix, we stopped at White Sands National Park to spend the afternoon and evening. It was absolutely beautiful and exceeded all my expectations. I don’t know if you’re allowed to camp out there overnight, but I think it would probably be okay. I didn’t see any police or rangers around… it was incredibly lonely, except for my friends here in the photo.

Street Party in Berlin

Funny Japanese Video

I love how crazy the Japanese can be! ๐Ÿ™‚

A brilliant show from Japan from funny

Daily Photo – Street Party in Berlin

Wow, Germans really know how to party! This party went on all day and into the night. I have no idea what drugs everybody was on, but they certainly seemed to be having an amazing time. It’s great to see so many happy people out and about, enjoying the day. They must have been good drugs because everyone was super happy and I didn’t see any arguments or fights or anything!
