Beautiful Cities of the World Collection
Here is another of the special animated creations for the recent drop on OpenSea.
Right at the end of this 40km hike, we ended up here where all the pilgrims do. After having a big farewell dinner, we all went and had some more drinks, Then I headed out to take photos through the night till I was exhausted. I was already pretty tired just from the hike, but I used all the power I had left for one last sesh of photos.
We had to search high and low to find one of these traditional Chinese tea houses, and this one was about an hour north of Chengdu. We were super happy to find it and we had some incredible tea. One of my favorite things about it was all these old communist posters on the wall. I also kind of like that the place was mostly a wreck… they make great tea, but they’re not the best at tidying.
I really doubt this guy would stand a chance against all these wolves. I mean, MAYBE he could take out 2 or 3… maybe 4 with a lucky swing. But, hey, maybe he’s an eternal optimist. I think that, while he is being eaten alive, he’ll be really questioning his optimistic outlook on life.
To get this look, I used my Movie Night Presets pack which I really recommend. It doesn’t work on all photos, but if you want to give your night photos a little bit of an interesting look, I recommend it. It’s heavily inspired by Blade Runner and a lot of other “dark movies” that I enjoy.
This entire area of Pudong completely empties out at night. I was like literally the only person walking around the streets. It was kind of eerie in a post-apocalyptic kind of way. It did make for some great photos… I just had on my earphones and was dancing around with my tripod like a loon. I’m sure if any Chinese people did actually see me… they’d be thinkin’ “Man, these tourist people are crazy!”
Here’s our group of winsome travelers before we begin the 100km hike from Portugal to Santiago. We were a very slow moving group, and that’s just the way we liked it. One of the surprises of the trip was how mediocre the food was. I was fully expecting to have amazing tapas everywhere!
I went over to visit my friend and take some photos around Dalefield. This area is always pretty, but it really has some unique spots that are sprinkled around. Some are on private land, but people are generally cool with you walking around their land to take photos. I’m not toooooo suspicious. 🙂
Are there any bad photos of Tokyo at night? Well, actually, yes, and I’ve taken most of them. Those are the ones I delete to hide my secret shame. But, every now and then, I get a cool shot like this and that makes me feel good about myself again before I start to swirl back down that shame spiral.
