Sony A7R 2 – Stuck in Customs

Winter at the Glacier

Daily Photo – Winter at the Glacier

Here’s a massive panorama I took deep in the mountains of the Southern Alps in New Zealand. What a place! We actually ended up sleeping here all night in the snow… it was incredible. I did all the packing myself for myself, Stu, and Ethan. I did a great job… except I forgot one important thing: a tent.

The Burlock Coast

The Earth in 250 million years

I saw this cool graphic on reddit…

Daily Photo – The Burlock Coast

Here’s a photo from the Burlock Coast restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I have a great relationship with that company and they are nice enough to let me stay for free. What a deal, eh? In exchange, I give them a bunch of photos, but it’s great because they don’t dictate what I should shoot. I just sort of roam around and find interesting things. This restaurant had so many textures and such cool lighting that it felt like the perfect place for a cool HDR.

Gloomy Day in Moscow

Moscow Photo Walk Highlights

Here’s highlights from our final photo walk in Europe!

Daily Photo – Gloomy Day in Moscow

There was a giant rainstorm before the photowalk, but suddenly the sun peaked out to light up these golden towers. We got lucky on all the photowalks and have never had rain after about 60 of them or so. Crazy right? I thought our luck had run out here in Moscow, but I was wrong!

Freedom Tower, New York City

Daily Photo – Freedom Tower, New York City

After my talk in New York City, I was invited on the roof of the Marriott in downtown to capture this photo of Freedom Tower. They have one of the best views in downtown and it was good to get up high to minimize the perspective angles that sometimes diminish the stature of skyscrapers as high as this one.

This is one of those occasions when HDR makes a huge difference in an image as you’ll see from the before and after in the video.

Old Woman at the Summer Palace

Daily Photo – Old Woman at the Summer Palace

When I went on the “around the world” trip with my family a few years ago, our first stop was in Beijing. Besides the Great Wall, we also visited the Summer Palace. It’s a sprawling layout that is serene and beautiful, as opposed to the rest of a rather dreary Beijing. A lot of old people come here to walk around and get their exercise. This gal was not really doing a lot of that…

The Gardens at the Four Seasons

Daily Photo – The Gardens at the Four Seasons

Here’s the view from my room of the cool gardens and pools there at the Four Seasons in Dubai. I think it looks kind of sexual in a way… don’t you? It reminds me of fallopian tubes… not that I spend a lot of time looking at fallopian tubes or anything…

Happy Woman in Kyoto

Daily Photo – Happy Woman in Kyoto

Every night I try to make it a point to roam up and down the streets of Japanese towns to take photos. I’m never disappointed. A lot of restaurants have a woman that stands out front to greet new customers. They are not pushy at all and are simply full of smiles and awesomeness. It’s one of the hundreds of things I love about Japan. I don’t have to do anything at all for women to smile at me.

Happy Cowboy in Beijing

Daily Photo – Happy Cowboy in Beijing

When I took the family to see the Summer Palace, we saw all sorts of characters. But this was my first time ever see some dude wearing a cowboy hat and a poncho. I don’t even know where you could buy these things in the city. I wish I spoke Mandarin to find out where he got this getup! ๐Ÿ™‚

New York Skyline from the Upper West Side

Daily Photo – New York Skyline from the Upper West Side

I don’t think most people would recognize this as New York City. I know the city pretty well and I never would have guessed it in at least my first ten tries. I think the thing that makes it unique is those three really tall thin buildings that are relatively new. They stand out so far above the skyline and it throws you off a bit. If you squint a little, you can see the Empire State Building in the far distance.
