A Driveway I Wish I Had

Daily Photo – A Driveway I Wish I Had

I’m much too lazy with the landscaping to create a driveway experience like this. Also, I’m too cheap to hire someone to make something so lavish. However, whenever I do see someone else’s driveway that looks so awesome, I think, wow, I should really upgrade my driveway a little bit.

Cute Kids in Africa

Daily Photo – Cute Kids in Africa

How adorable are these kids? I’m not sure where they get these shirts, and I’m 100% sure they don’t speak English, but how cool is that kid in the middle that is wearing that shirt that says “Chicks Dig Me.” It’s true, probably. Just by wearing that shirt and with that smile, chicks probably do dig him!

Waterfall Along the Routeburn

Daily Photo – Waterfall Along the Routeburn

I think we passed this on the very first day of the Routeburn track along the South Island of New Zealand. I had a feeling we’d pass a few waterfalls, but I didn’t expect anything quite this majestic. It was one of those cool waterfalls where basically everyone gets soaking wet while passing underneath… which was a really nice break after a rather sweaty ascent.

Art Tour in Shanghai

Daily Photo – Art Tour in Shanghai

Here’s a rarely visited area of Shanghai where this old factory has been converted into an art space. Unfortunately, we got there too late and we could only kinda look through the window. There was a lot of contemporary art in there that looked completely confusing, so it’s probably just as well that I didn’t go in… I could be confused from the outside rather than be confused from the inside.

The Best Photos from the Boat Party

If you all follow my silly Instagram stories, then you’ll get to see some of the frivolity behind the scenes… In today’s video, I’ll show you about a dozen new photos and the reasoning behind the editing. In some cases, it’s a bit over the top, but that is cool too 🙂

Lighting Lamps in Shanghai

Daily Photo – Lighting Lamps in Shanghai

As part of my “thing” with the Ritz-Carlton, they let me take whatever photos I want to take, which is great! They usually have a few suggestions here and there that might be photogenic. Some are good ideas, and some kind of come out to be duds. Anyway, at this hotel in Shanghai they have a nightly ritual where they light lanterns to illuminate the main hallway that leads to the lobby. The women dress up in traditional garb, so I thought it would a fun shooting opportunity, and it was!

Deconstructed Panorama

Trey Ratcliff Fine Art

Today’s photo is one of my unique commissioned works I did for a collector. As for other collectable photos, you can go visit www.TreyRatcliff.com to see more. This print was was one-of-one, which is what I usually do for collectors. This is actually the same collector that introduced me over dinner to Edward Norton and Leo DiCaprio in LA, and they ended up getting some prints as well from the series.

Daily Photo – Deconstructed Panorama

This was a rather difficult photo to create, but it makes a lot more sense when you see it large and your eye is able to travel across the length of it. It’s made out of about 100 different photos, all taken around the same time, but the light would constantly change and flex… it reminded me that when you look at an actual panoramic scene, your eye and brain build a patchwork quilt of disparate parts.

Midnight Loop around Singapore

Machine Elf 48 – Clinging

Welcome to the latest Machine Elf creation! This one was very fun to create and I decided to try something a bit different with the audio soundscape by starting with some words from Mooji. I listen to his meditations and talks quite a bit. He’s got a rather nice way about him and a pleasant and contemplative gait to his voice. This is a remix I did where most of the heavy lifting is done by Nils Frahm & Monolink combined with “Don’t Forget The Moon! 01” from Anton Tumas.

This creation mostly explores the constantly unfolding geometry of a bifurcated symmetry which breaks and rebuilds itself in a steady flow between order and entropy.

Right in the middle of Singapore is a pretty big lake that is surrounded with all different sorts of art. It makes more sense to go there at night for two reasons. For one, that’s when all the lights come on and it makes for much better photography. For two, it’s about 50 degrees cooler so you are not melting in the Singaporean sun!

Deer-like Creature in Africa

Daily Photo – Deer-like Creature in Africa

Wow I wish I knew my animals better. When I roll around Africa, I’m constantly asking, what is THAT animal called again? And the guide is like, “Oh, that’s an ELEPHANT, Trey.” I’m like okay… since when did they have trunks? I think the guides think I am dumb or something… but, actually more, seriously, there are about 100 deer-like creatures with different horns. This one is called like a Springbok or something. Or maybe not. I really don’t know. It’s not an elephant, though.

Lemurs In Kobe

What’s more fun than watching a Lemur?

Watching a lemur get high! 🙂

Daily Photo – Lemurs In Kobe

I thought these guys were pretty cute. Zoboomafoo! As cute as I thought they were, Japanese people thought they were even cuter. They would watch them for hours and hours and just giggle. Hearing them giggle and watching them point were just as entertaining as the actual mammal itself!
