Sony NEX-7 – Stuck in Customs

Quick pitstop in Vancouver

Daily Photo – Quick pitstop in Vancouver

All being well, when this blog post goes live I’ll be trying to waste some time in Vancouver airport after a 14hr flight from Sydney. Hopefully the next flight is on-time-ish or it’ll be a looooong day!

The Wine Cave

Daily Photo – The Wine Cave

I’m told, hopefully reliably, that this (at Gibbston Valley) is the largest wine cave in New Zealand.

Drop 1

Daily Photo – Drop 1

One of my favorite images from Drop 1 over on Opensea… Canyon Spiral. (Animated over there.)

I explored this beautiful sandstone vortex from morning till night to find the most magical angles that represented a neverending duality. This is from the Slot Canyons, and, although beautiful, it is quite a dangerous place, as flash floods regularly drown people as they spiral down into their death. That got dark, but let’s think positive thoughts. 🙂

Randomness in China

Daily Photo – Randomness in China

Here’s a scene from Beijing from back in 2013. Sometimes the temptation is to not go out in less than average weather but as this shot shows, it can add a lot more interest to a scene.

I think this is Brisbane… the tags on the image agree. So let’s just assume it is!

Reflections at Hobbiton

Daily Photo – Reflections at Hobbiton

When we were over at Hobbiton for filming I was fortunate to have access outside the normal opening hours which gave me the option of sunset and sunrise shoots. I was incredibly fortunate to then find that there was little breeze and some lovely pink clouds thanks to the low sun which resulted in this peaceful scene.

Colors in China

Daily Photo – Colors in China

Each time I’ve visited China one of the highlights has been to head out and wander randomly. On this day I found myself in some sort of park where there were little bits of cool architecture dotted around. I particularly loved the green and red mix under the sun as I passed by this building.

San Francisco at Dusk

Daily Photo – San Francisco at Dusk

I spend a lot of time in San Francisco trying to work out how to get into the higher buildings, sometimes it’s as easy as just booking a hotel room, usually though it involves a lot of persuasion with the staff in a lobby. Always a fun challenge. 🙂

Mirror Stairs

Daily Photo – Mirror Stairs

I love it when designers get to go a bit nuts around escalators. I don’t mind if it’s some sort of classic architecture vibe, or something wild like this one in Tokyo. So much fun and way better than your average staircase!
