Sony A7R 2 – Stuck in Customs

Road Trippin

Daily Photo – Road Trippin

I’m heading out on a short road trip today with some friends… there will be some hot tub fun and we have a crazy idea to record a podcast while on the road. What could go wrong? I guess you’ll find out soon! This image is not of a road, or my destination. But it is a method of transportation… and it is New Zealand. So, it works as a daily photo… right?

These Italians really do know how to do a good ceiling… the arch ain’t half impressive either!

Another Amazing Ceiling

Daily Photo – Another Amazing Ceiling

Those folk in the olden days really did know how to do a ceiling. This is one in Italy (in the Vatican if memory serves me correctly) is one of the most spectacular that you’ll find.

Brihadishvara Temple

Daily Photo – Brihadishvara Temple

When we toured India a few years ago as part of a wider journey, one of the goals was to visit a range of religious locations. They are always interesting from an architecture point of view but broadening the kid’s knowledge was also beneficial. Here (i think!) is a section of Brihadishvara Temple in Thanjavur. I really should take better notes! Either way, it’s an impressive structure and was a real highlight to explore.

Cologne, Germany

I walked into this amazing cathedral and was amazed to see this surrealist scene. On a huge screen, they were showing deep views of the universe while atmospheric Phillip Glass music droned heavily, bouncing and echoing around the stone. People would sit in the pews and just watch slow animations of the universe unfolding. There were priests who sat around the outside edges of the cathedral to answer any questions that people might have and I thought this was pretty great to see, as often there is a disconnect between religion and science. Of course, some switched-on theologians know that it is all the same thing, from a single source. This cathedral took centuries to finish and was started back in the good ol’ days of 1248.

Hagia Sophia, Turkey

Daily Photo – Hagia Sophia, Turkey

The Hagia Sophia in Istanbul is like no other religious structure in the world. It was originally the patriarchal cathedral of Constantinople and has gone through many changes over time. For a while, it was the city’s Catholic cathedral and then after the fall of the Ottoman Empire, it was converted to an Islamic Mosque. When I walked in, I was a little disappointed to see the scaffolding, but then I decided to integrate it into the final piece, thinking of this entire structure as sort of a space station to take you to an ethereal plane of spiritual existence.
