New York – Stuck in Customs

The Journey Home

Daily Photo – The Journey Home

It’s been a few months now since I left NZ to head to the US for the first time in YEARS. It’s been quite a crazy time but awesome to finally see the family, friends and there was that Burning Man thing too. Now though I’m starting to edge towards returning home. Last week I was in the Bahamas before a short stop in NYC for a friend’s birthday. Now it’s a case of beginning the slow trek home. Hopefully with a few photography stops along the way.

One WTC from the Roof

Daily Photo – One WTC from the Roof

I think I took this on top of a Ritz-Carlton or Marriott. They were kind enough to let us up there for a quick photo session one evening when we were on the 80 Stays tour. Thanks again cool RC/Marriott people πŸ™‚

50 Beautiful Cities

Hey awesome blog reader… you’ll probably be aware that I’ve been delving into the world of NFTs in the past few months. So far, it’s been both a success and an interesting adventure. That continues today with my 2nd drop on OpenSea. This set of NFTs is based around 50 of my favorite cities spanning all seven continents. There are a wide range of configurations (and prices) available and I’d love it if you’d check them out. If you thought an NFT mixed with physical art was odd last time then how about several NFTs, wrapped in an NFT… mixed with some Aave tokens which should appreciate over time??!

The first drop on OpenSea did better than expected and broke $100,000USD in the first three days. This second one already has a lot of interest as more and more collectors are getting into the NFT world. Jump on in! I’ll make a detailed video soon that talks more about what I’ve learned, mistakes I’ve made, some new ideas, and other interesting stuff from this wild wild west of cryptofun.

Also, if you’re an NFT curious artist, be sure to sign up for Passport where I’ve been sharing videos about my NFT experience so far. If you’re thinking about listing your own, you may find those helpful. Speaking of your own NFTs, I’m now starting to invest back into other projects so if you launch something cool tag me on Twitter and I’ll be sure to take a look. πŸ™‚

Brooklyn Bridge at Sunset

USA Tour Highlights

Wow this seems like ages ago!

Daily Photo – Brooklyn Bridge at Sunset

I took this as soon as we started the photowalk in New York that you can see in the highlights above. It was a pretty hard photo to get, actually. Getting your tripod set up there is not easy because bikes go whizzing by right and left, so it kind of keeps you on high alert. Everyone is kicking and knocking your tripod legs… get outta heeeya! πŸ™‚

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.
