Google Pixel 3 – Stuck in Customs

Posing for Instagram in a snowstorm

Social Dilemma Trailer

This is a great show to watch on Netflix… I’ve known about this stuff for a long time and wrote a lot about it in my book – and I’m glad this is going more mainstream now. Here’s the trailer for ya:

I love watching people freeze off their fingers just to get the perfect shot for Instagram. It’s such a weird thing in a way… I guess it’s not the end of the world. At least she’s not in a bikini. Speaking of Instagram, be sure to check out the trailer above.

Arriving in Silver Tip

Daily Photo – Arriving in Silver Tip

My friend invited me out to his ranch in Montana. It’s quite remote and you can either ride a horse in, which takes a bit over an hour, or you can hike in. I always choose the hike even though it takes an extra 3 or 4 hours. There’s also more excitement because we sometimes see bears! Usually, about halfway through, the wagons that have been loaded with all our luggage come rumbling by, and that’s when I took this photo.

DC After a Snowstorm

Daily Photo – DC After a Snowstorm

I arrived in DC at about the same time as a giant snowstorm. It was great for me because I had most of the day free just to walk around and get photos. I didn’t have a lot of winter-gear with me, but I was able to stay out taking photos for a solid three hours before I retreated back inside to the warmth to process some photos.

Returning From Fishing

Daily Photo – Returning From Fishing

About the middle of the day everyone starts bringing in their boats with their morning catches here on the beach on Madagascar. It’s cool to see all these guys carrying the boat while almost running full speed. I would have asked to help but they could probably just look me up and down and know I was useless.

The Washington Monument in a Snow Storm

Daily Photo – The Washington Monument in a Snow Storm

I went to D.C. in the winter to visit my friends at the Ritz-Carlton and the Marriott, since this is where they are based. I had an extra day and there was quite a blizzard out there! So I ran around with my camera as long as I could stand the cold to get some photos. Here is one of my favorites…

Along the beach in Madagascar

Daily Photo – Along the beach in Madagascar

Almost every day in Madagascar, I went out on a jog up and down the beach. This was during a period when my luggage was lost, which meant I didn’t have my big boy camera. Oh well! No worries… I made it a challenge for myself to use my Pixel phone as much as a good. This is one of the many fun photos I got while working the scene up and down the beach.

Snowstorm in D.C.

Actual Reports from Travelers

Actually, I’m not surprised after traveling around a bit… I occasionally see these sorts of people at various locations.

They go on vacation to experience something new then complain that things are different from facepalm

Daily Photo – Snowstorm in D.C.

I recently posted this photo on social media and people really seemed to love it. I really did not expect that reaction! I mean, you never know what’s gonna be a hit and what won’t. You all know me… the reaction does not affect what I choose to shoot or post, but I do enjoy watching the reactions. It was so popular that I am putting in my upcoming book!

Washington DC in the Snow

Ricky Gervais Funny Stuff

Here’s a nice compilation of Ricky Gervais cracking up at stuff!

Daily Photo – Washington DC in the Snow

I was there last winter on a particularly bitter-cold day. I decided to head out with my Pixel phone and see what kind of shots I could get. I had a rough theory that the shots from the Pixel would be no big difference from my Sony. And, I was pretty much right. If I had taken this shot with the Sony, I doubt anyone could tell the difference side-by-side. Of course, there’d be a difference if you zoomed in to 100% because of the megapixel difference.

Selling Typewriters

Reality as it is?

One of my good friends that is obsessed with reality shared this with me… I thought it was beyond interesting.

Daily Photo – Selling Typewriters

There is a huge set of stairs in Antananarivo that connect the lower part of the city to the upper part. All along both sides are people selling pretty much anything you can imagine. It’s mostly the sort of stuff people in the west would consider antiques. But people here actually still use this stuff. It’s both strange and not-strange. The whole thing is a bit of an anachronism because people that are selling this stuff are always behind the tables on their smartphones.

Three Photographers from Madagascar

Tesla Truck Testing

They released a new video to see how tough to new Tesla truck is actual street conditions. Note that even though this is silly, I actually do want one!

First real structural integrity test on real condition for the Tesla cybertruck was successful. No scratches observed. from funny

Daily Photo – Three Photographers from Madagascar

I was walking around with my friend Rene and we came across these three girls who were out taking photos. It was actually the very first DSLR I saw while there, and I was really surprised. They supposedly came from a different part of Madagascar because of their face paint. Also, they didn’t speak any English so it was really quite hard to communicate! But I thought they looked cool! By the way, this is a shot with my Pixel 3 phone. Not bad, eh?
