Sony A7R 3 – Stuck in Customs

The Tumble

Daily Photo – The Tumble

The very “top” of a waterfall is called the crest. It makes a lot of sense, but I had to google that first. There’s a name for everything. Anyway, check out the crest on Victoria Falls, eh? It’s interesting how much green there is in there. It must be a ton of biomass. I googled a little to see what percentage of this waterfall is actually water, but came up dry.

Along the Beachfront

Daily Photo – Along the Beachfront

While in Madagascar, we spent quite a few days staying on the beach in Morondava. Every day, we’d see all sorts of local people walking up and down the beach, mostly engaged in fish-related activities. Late one day, while out preparing to take sunset photos, I saw this mom with her kids walking back home. I had on my Bose headphones, so I put it on the heads of her kids to dance while I took mom’s photo.

Rene Contemplating Life

Savvy Awards

It appears I have mistakenly recently become a winner in the Savvy Awards. I’m in that list right under Elon Musk.

Daily Photo – Rene Contemplating Life

This is a rather unique area of Zimbabwe where these huge granite boulders are just kind of sitting on top of a hill. You can see Rene up there sitting on top of one while Neville and Deanie are having a G&T over on the left. We asked our guide if we would get in trouble if we rolled one of these down the hill. He said, yes, of course. But then we said, “How about if we roll two new ones up the hill in exchange?” He didn’t know what to say… but he was pretty sure it was wrong. Then we said, “Okay, how about if we roll up a new one and don’t roll down any at all?” That one really stumped him.

On the way to Haast

How LSD Created the Internet

Here’s an interesting and short documentary about something you may not know about!

Daily Photo – On the way to Haast

How beautiful is the West Coast of New Zealand? It’s foggy and moody and full of mystique. I absolutely love it here. This makes me want to do more road trips all over the South Island… I’ll try to do a few a year! Next time, I think I want to get a little more drone action going because the views from up high are even more spectacular.

Silence

Last Second Shopping Idea!

Why not get that special someone the Stuck In Customs Passport? Every Sunday, they’ll get a new video plus have access to over 100 previously created videos. What’s in the package?

Daily Photo – Silence

Here’s my friend Jo with some of the team from a lodge we stayed at in Zimbabwe. I thought his t-shirt was brilliant. Jo has done about seven Ayuasca ceremonies over the past year and he’s really changed quite a bit. And by changed, I mean in the right direction. It’s not too different from my own journey with DMT and other things that have really helped make reality make sense. One thing is for sure, that we don’t suffer any BS anymore! 🙂

Old Lady in Zimbabwe

Two Girls One Wall

This is pretty amazing!

Daily Photo – Old Lady in Zimbabwe

Wow that Zimbabwe really had some awesome looking people. I didn’t expect to take as many people photos as I did. I think one big reason is we were entertained at a fun festival and everybody was so colorful and excited to have their photos taken! I wish I had brought one of those Polaroid cameras so I could give them some instant print outs!

The Hot Pot in Chengdu

Awesomely Cute Campervan

I saw this cool campervan on Reddit. I think this would be fun to own but I would have no idea how to actually build the thing.

Daily Photo – The Hot Pot in Chengdu

Chengdu is known for its hot pot restaurants. It’s basically a huge boiling pot where everyone tosses in meats and veggies and stuff. It’s sort of a fun communal thing, I guess… but it’s also one of those places where they trick the customers into cooking their own food. During dinner, there is this Chinese opera that is being performed. However, while I was taking photos and really paying attention, I realized they were all lip-syncing and the performance was not actually real!

More of Tokyo in the Rain

Movie Night Presets

This is one of the photos that encouraged me to release my Movie Night Presets. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Daily Photo – More of Tokyo in the Rain

I have a hot tip for you as a photographer on a rainy night in a city. See if you can convince a friend (or hire someone) to carry around a giant golf umbrella for a few hours while you take photos. Photographers really need two hands, so having a buddy do this for you is a huge game-changer. It’s kind of boring for your friend, but promise you’ll buy them a burger or something!

Teahouse HDR

More from Chengdu

Today’s Passport Sunday how-to-video is from Chengdu, China. I do a rather aggressive edit today, as you’ll see! Either way, here are some of my other favorite photos from Chengdu.

Here’s a RATHER extreme HDR treatment! I don’t usually go this whole hog, but this place had such a Communist dystopian feel that I decided to go for it anyway! I hope you enjoy 🙂

Heading towards Shinjuku

Trey on Triangulation

Here is one of my favorite recent interviews with Leo Laporte!

Daily Photo – Heading towards Shinjuku

I stayed in a hotel that was kind of in a “boring” area near Shinjuku. It was all office buildings and kind of dull. But it was only a ten-minute walk over to the more intense part of Shinjuku, which is the most Blade Runner area of Tokyo. On the way, you begin to walk over a bridge and things suddenly start to come alive. This is the first scene I saw each night as my son and I walked into the city.
