Sony NEX-7 – Stuck in Customs

Alive. New Zealand.

Daily Photo – Alive. New Zealand.

There is a cool tree that grows out of the water here. When things are calm, sometimes there are these nice little ripples that come by while the ducks swim around… serene.

Thinking of Wanaka

Daily Photo – Thinking of Wanaka

I’m headed over to Wanaka soon for a mini-road trip! Last time I was there, this tree was hibernating for the winter… now that it is finally springtime, I expect to see some leaves on here! Watch my dumb insta stories to see…

On the Road to Milford Sound

Daily Photo – On the Road to Milford Sound

Here’s a nice stop that a lot of people miss along the way to Milford Sound. I got up early one morning and went between those two bridges just before you get to the sound and hiked along the river to find this spot. That’s Mitre Peak (Rahotu) there in the background.

Hobbiton

Daily Photo – Hobbiton

Most people know New Zealand from the Lord of the Rings movies. That’s how I first started thinking about moving here. What some may not know is that there is actually a Hobbiton with about 40 little hobbit holes on the North Island. Well… most doors are fake except for Bilbo’s home.

Daily Photo – Swirly Canyon

Here’s a cool view of Antelope Canyon. There are really no bad photos of this place… I think that’s why photographers love it so much! I spent a few hours in here getting waaaaaay too many photos. I still haven’t gone through all of them.

The Slot Canyons

Daily Photo – The Slot Canyons

Man, I have SO MANY photos from this place, but I’ve hardly processed any of them. This is one that I worked on recently. They are actually very difficult to process, even in HDR, because of the brightness of the sky. I’m pretty happy with how this one turned out, but I think I can do better on future ones.

Machine Elf 34 and a Fun Day at Pinterest

Machine Elf 34

Sam and I are excited to release our newest creation: Machine Elf 34: Master Owl.

The owl knows everything and is often the one who allows you to see it. Graced by the owls presence, Machine Elf 34 takes us on an unpredictable adventure that delves inside the alien mind to see what hides within. This is our most mathematically complex fractal so far and is a combination of the Xenodreambuie in a hybrid with Atan2Power 2. As with all the others, watch in full screen with the volume up and allow yourself to fall away into the world.

These are also available in 360 for a cool VR app called TRIPP. If you have an Oculus Quest, Go or Rift, you can download TRIPP which features guiding experiences to make you happier, calmer and more focused. Grab that here: https://the-machine-elf.com/TRIPP

For more Machine Elf creations, including physical installations, check out the website: https://the-machine-elf.com/

Made in the Mountains of Queenstown, New Zealand.

Fun Day at Pinterest

Here’s a fun trip down memory lane when I spent an entire day at the Pinterest HQ in San Francisco. This is just when they are getting started so everyone looks a bit younger! 🙂


Ben Silbermann, CEO of Pinterest, is just as nice of a guy as that smile would indicate...

One of the Pinterest employees works away, after seemingly emerging from a shampoo commercial.

This is what you see upon entrance to the Pinterest offices in the trendy SOMA area of San Francisco.

Ben Silberman is not only the CEO of Pinterest, but he's also a serious photographer.  Before we got down to the meat of our meeting, we spent about half an hour geeking out about photography equipment!
