Sony A7R – Stuck in Customs

Peak Lupin

Daily Photo – Peak Lupin

It’s getting close to the end of lupin season now in NZ. There are a lot of people who hate them and see them as pests/weeds, but I really like how they look… maybe they’re not as friendly looking as the bluebell and than gets them a bad rap… who knows!

Rustic Glenorchy

Daily Photo – Rustic Glenorchy

I think 99% of the photos I’ve posted from Glenorchy are bright, colorful, epic landscapes… it’s hard not to take those when down that way. Here though is one of those little corners of the area which is pretty awesome in its own way…

A Quick Tip for Social Media

Daily Photo – A Quick Tip for Social Media

If you saw yesterday’s post you’ll know I just sent out a newsletter which covered my most viewed images of 2021. Also included was a little bit of background info that some of my best performing posts of the year were those with tags like “road trip” or “car”. So here’s another road trip image… maybe people who’ve been locked down or those who are waiting on a new car through the chip shortage are all searching online for road/automobile based posts? Who knows. If you want a little sharing boost though, keep the above in mind when sharing your next image. 🙂

Worship

A new NFT Collection on Foundation

Sometimes in moments of fear, or from fear of death, the root from which all fear begins, people turn to faith and religion to try to give it all some sort of meaning. As I’ve traveled around to all seven continents, I’ve talked to many people I meet about religion… from taxi drivers to locals in restaurants to people who work in places of worship. Even though I don’t subscribe to any set of rules laid out by any religion, I think in most cases it’s a pretty decent thing, as long as no one is getting hurt or trying to make another group feel bad. I personally used to be a fairly hardcore atheist until I tried Ayahuasca and a few other plant medicines that have shown me there is something else going on. I don’t know what it is, but there are some entities out there that are helping us along. One message I continue to get: Everything is exactly the way it is supposed to be. And that’s comforting, although it is easy to view that via a nihilistic lens.

This is a first collection of images from a range of impressive and often inspirational places of worship around the world. View it here on Foundation.

Until the Cows Come Home. New Zealand.

Daily Photo – Until the Cows Come Home. New Zealand.

The South Island of New Zealand is absolutely huge. It looks tiny on the map, but it feels as big as California. Something else that makes it feel so big is hardly anyone lives on the South Island, so you can literally drive for hours and never see another car. This image was taken in the lakes area on the way to Lake Ohau.

Bora Bora Bora. Bora Bora.

Daily Photo – Bora Bora Bora. Bora Bora.

Here in Tahiti is one of the first places I took my family on an exotic location. The kids loved it. They basically stayed in the water 100% of the time. When I wasn’t playing with them, I would sneak away to take photos of this incredible archipelago.

Hiking at Aro Ha

Daily Photo – Hiking at Aro Ha

Here’s the view from a short hike from Aro Ha here in Glenorchy. I know it’s a meditation and yoga retreat and I shouldn’t be out taking photos… but, for me, photography is a meditation of its own.
