Another Bridge in Melbourne
Daily Photo – Another Bridge in Melbourne
I like these cities that get all fancy with their bridges. Melbourne certainly does! Each bridge tries to out-do the next. There’s no common theme and its sort of a mishmash of styles, to say the least. I think that not everyone likes this, but I do. I don’t mind all the variety, especially from the perspective of photography.
It’s kind of the same way with the buildings and other decorative elements around downtown Melbourne. There are so many styles, most of which are one flavor of “modern” or “contemporary”. I enjoy mixing and matching different elements into compositions, but it is not easy. There is a challenging aspect to it that I don’t get in many other cities.
Daily Photo – Sydney Spaceship
Sydney, Australia is just a short flight from New Zealand where I live. Well, that’s not entirely true. It’s still 4 hours, but everything else is 10+ hours from New Zealand.
There is an area called The Rocks that is one of the oldest areas of Sydney, and this is just a short walk away. I love this photo because it causes confusion the first time you see it. I try to do this sometimes with my photos where I attempt to cause the viewer to wonder exactly what they are seeing. After a few moments, they slowly figure it out and that gives them a little squirt of dopamine.

Live from Australia… but not…
A couple of weeks ago I connected with the team at Australian Blockchain Week for a fun panel on the NFT industry. You can watch the recording here. (Registration required but it’s free and you can put in random info.)
A Fun Sydney Creation
Daily Photo – A Fun Sydney Creation
This image started as me trying to find something interesting to shoot while wandering around in Sydney one night. Then more recently I was commissioned by a collector to create an animated NFT from it. Never in a million years did I think that it would end up looping into infinity on someones wall when I took it… in fact back in 2013 I wouldn’t even have considered that an option! You can see the final creation here.

Well, this is pretty cool, if I do say so myself, and I do. We’ve designed about 100 of these things and here are some favorites all mashed together in about three minutes. Enjoy, and tell your friends, except for Joe Rogan.
Daily Photo – Walking along the bridge in Sydney
When we were in Sydney, my friend David Maxwell got us on a boat to scoot around the harbour for a while. It was great fun. We went under the famous bridge there a few times and saw people casually walking across the top. I thought you had to be harnessed in or something, but, hey, you know how crazy Aussies can be!

Passport Sunday from Australia!
If you’re a Passport member then today you’ll get that little bonus section where you see how I made the photo. I hope you enjoy it! It was a bit of a challenge…
The Gold Coast Panorama – making of Gold Coast
I was a little worried during the edit of this one that it may not work out… but, I should have had more faith in myself, because it did in the end!
