Travel – Stuck in Customs

The Beginning of the Routeburn

Daily Photo – The Beginning of the Routeburn

This is one of the most famous great walks in New Zealand. It’s about a 2 or 3 night hike and it goes around some of the most beautiful mountains in the southern alps. I think one of the best shots was right here in the beginning.

A Minimalist Morning

Daily Photo – A Minimalist Morning

One morning along the coast of Gisborne was incredibly serene. It was one of those nice long mornings where I just listened to music and walked alone, seeing the morning pastels softly moving from one palette to another.

More Autumn Action in Queenstown

NFT Auctions Closing Soon

For those of you interested in the fun world of NFTs, the latest drop closes in a few hours on Makersplace. Check it out here.

Daily Photo – More Autumn Action in Queenstown

There’s a huge area here between Queenstown and Arrowtown with rolling hills, lakes, little streams, and tons of different trees that change color in the Autumn. (Autumn is happening now in the southern hemisphere, btw – I know that’s always confusing to all you “others” in the northern hemisphere!) – The mornings are crisp and cool but the sun comes out in the middle of the day to warm everything up and help the colors to really glow.

All Systems Go!

Today’s big news is that the new NFTs are now live on Makersplace take a look here! As with the previous creations a chunk of the sale goes to the artists and subjects of the images with some also going to charity. I’ve also taken on board feedback from the Foundation experience. This time round the process to get involved is much easier as you can pay by card or ETH… auctions start at $1 with a wide range of configurations available including probably my best-known Burning Man image as a 1 of 1 Edition, an image which hung in the Smithsonian and some of my favourite scenes across the years.

It’s probably also worth saying that for the video NFTs I’ll be providing the full quality video file to the winner(s) which means you can enjoy things like the Temple Sunrise in 4K as a wallpaper on your UHD TV or high res display nice and easily.

The 24 Hour Countdown Begins

Just over a month ago we raised a whole bunch of money (over $10k) for charity and artists on my first NFT auction. So, let’s do it again! Starting tomorrow, and you can preview some of the art now, I’m going live on Makersplace with a new batch of Burning Man goodness.

The good news for any of you who struggled a bit with Foundation and cryptocurrency wallets is that Makersplace accept card payments and do all of the crypto stuff for you. The best of both worlds and a chance to help out some artists who have struggled through the pandemic! Here’s a little low-res preview of one of the items available.

New NFT Drop Incoming

Cool Video

I’m not sure how I came across this video… maybe a recommendation after my Mooji meditation – but I think it’s pretty cool.

And now for that NFT News…

NEW NFT Goodness!

Here’s a sneak preview of the drop coming in just a little while! It’s my first time on Makersplace, and I have no idea how it will go! What I can tell you is that it will be a lot more straightforward for you all to get involved in as Makersplace allow card payments, not just payments via a Cryptocurrency wallet. 🙂

Bridges in Pittsburgh

Daily Photo – Bridges in Pittsburgh

I don’t know if I ever would have visited Pittsburgh if it wasn’t part of the USA tour, and that’s a shame because it’s a really cool city. The city is great to shoot and the bridges always make for a good subject matter. It’s also a great walking city where you can just criss-cross the river as many times as you need to find some interesting shots.

Exploring Hudson Yards at Dusk

Daily Photo – Exploring Hudson Yards at Dusk

I’ve always wanted to visit this Stairway to Nowhere in Hudson Yards, so I was sure to block off an entire day for it. There are literally no bad photos of this thing, so it’s what I call a high-target environment! In these situations, I challenge myself to get as many “different” kinds of photos as possible. This one is probably one of my favorites.

Visiting the Floating Markets in Langkawi

Daily Photo – Visiting the Floating Markets in Langkawi

One day, we jumped out on a boat to go through the archipelago to visit some floating markets. These places are totally unique and they sell a wide variety of things, only half of which I can identify. Some of the veggies and fruits and stuff look a little sketchy, so they are definitely the sorts of things you need to prep and cook well when you get home.

Dry Dock Near Picton

Daily Photo – Dry Dock Near Picton

After I dropped off my son Ethan for Outward Bound in Picton, I drove the long way back to take some photos. I got the quad out to get this one of these cool boat houses. Obviously, it was low tide, so I don’t totally love the photo, as I think it would be incredible at high tide with still water to make a cool reflection shot. But, you gotta take what you can get.
