Hong Kong – Stuck in Customs

Hong Kong Forever

Dennis Highlights

Some of you may know that one of my favorite shows is “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” – and here is a funny Youtube video I found that has some Dennis highlights.

Daily Photo – Hong Kong Forever

I’ve been taking more and more photos when I don’t show the horizon. So many cities are recognizable by their skyline… so sometimes I like to obscure that information. Hong Kong is also known for this particular shape of building. I think in the 70’s and 80’s that the Chinese government built about 100 buildings of this same design and crammed them all together like this.

Exploring Hong Kong

Soul Anarchist Podcast

Here’s a really fun podcast I did that revolves around Burning Man with the Soul Anarchist, Paul Duane!

Daily Photo – Exploring Hong Kong

One day my friend Simon started showing lots of cool secret spots all over Hong Kong. Some of these places were really hard to get into… especially because it was illegal. I don’t know why I keep engaging in illegal activities in China. It doesn’t really seem that smart, now that I think about it!

Alley in Hong Kong

New Two-Propeller Drone flies twice as long

Check out this new concept.

Daily Photo – Alley in Hong Kong

This was my first time to visit this radical area of Hong Kong. I think I had maybe been here ten years before, but that was in the middle of the daytime in the sweltering heat. You can only hang out in Chinese fish markets in blazing heat for a short time before you’ve had enough. I had never thought about how beautiful it would be at dusk with all the colorful lights spilling into the streets, though.

I took this on my last morning there before catching the ferry over to Macau. That turned out to be one of the longest days of the trip because it was nonstop action in Macau. We had dinner with the PR guy that works for the Ritz-Carlton there. He told us some of the CRAZIEST STORIES about what happens in Macau… my goodness… it makes Vegas look like a kindergarten playground.

Hong Kong From Way Above

I could use your help

In explaining what I just saw!

Wtf did i just watch. And sry for my screen recorder from Unexpected

Daily Photo – Hong Kong From Way Above

Here’s a new shot that I recently processed from a rather exciting quad flight over some government housing in Hong Kong. I was standing in the sun, and it was pretty hard to see the screen to see what I was capturing. This is actually a common problem. I’ve been meaning to pick up a hood, the cool Smart Controller or maybe even one of those FPV headsets.

Shopping Street in Hong Kong

Luminar and Looks

I recently made some videos that show off Luminar and my Luminar Looks. By the way, they are called Looks now… not presets, but I still say it wrong all the time.

Daily Photo – Shopping Street in Hong Kong

Here’s a fun new photo I’m quite happy with! I took it about half a year ago when I was in Hong Kong, but haven’t processed it until recently. I used one of my Luminar presets from above!

Colorful Courts

Red Dead Redemption 2

Man, I’m loving this game! I don’t really have enough time to play it, but I try to squeeze in a few hours a week. There’s another huge video project I’m working on… and I don’t really mind working on it because it’s fun… so I get a little guilty when I flip that off to start playing some video games. I tell myself it’s better for my mind to jump around to a few different things!

Daily Photo – Colorful Courts

Drone photography is so fun! In some ways, almost anything is interesting from a top-down perspective. One of my challenges with this is to choose the MOST interesting things. I like to try to find simple patterns or interesting colors that are a bit confusing. Like, what kind of court is that on the top of the photo? I’m really not sure… is it badminton? I always thought that was such a silly sport, but what do I know? I mean, why not play Tennis or Ping Pong, each of which seems to be a lot more fun to me.

I’m 99% Sure this is Hong Kong

India Photo Adventure?

We’re just about to start planning one of these, and I’m quite excited! We’re trying to figure out how many people can go on it with me. I think we’ll keep it pretty small, but pay attention to the Workshops page to see when it goes up.. and don’t forget on that page to sign up for our newsletter! 🙂

Daily Photo – I’m 99% Sure this is Hong Kong

…with a 1% chance it is Tokyo. I have a ton of photos like this from Tokyo, and I don’t exactly remember taking this photo. I mean, I know I took it because it ended up on my camera. It might have been after one of those long nights out with the guys, taking photos and then having a long dinner with a lot of wine. I usually like to take a long walk back to the hotel and take photos along the way, and maybe this is how this photo came to be!

Blade Runner in Hong Kong

SmugMug Galleries

Just in case you don’t know, I now have four different portfolios. I am never totally sure how to separate all of my portfolios… but, for now, I’ve decided on four:

Main Portfolio
Burning Man
Portraits and People
Big Cities and Little Ones

Daily Photo – Blade Runner in Hong Kong

I feel like this Blade Runner trope is getting old. I wish I had another comparison to make. Fifth Element, maybe? Yeah, either way, even though I am a total introvert, I do enjoy spending a bit of time in these crazy cities. Maybe because I live in a tiny town of less than 50,000, I get overly excited with my camera when hitting these megacities in China.

Beautiful Hallway in Hong Kong

Fun Creative Gadget for Kids

Here’s a cool music maker I recently got for my 13-year-old daughter. I wasn’t sure if she would want it or not, but we watched a few videos and she got super excited.

Daily Photo – Beautiful Hallway in Hong Kong

Check out this hallway in the Ritz-Carlton in Hong Kong. This hallway leads to some absolutely amazing restaurants where I ended up eating way too much food! Also, this hallway seemed to be very popular among Instagrammers. I had to be pretty patient to wait for all of them to get out of their egoic selfie zones so I could set up with my tripod.
