New Zealand – Stuck in Customs

Queenstown

Here is another of the special animated creations for the recent drop on OpenSea. Speaking of NFTs… keep your eyes peeled for an announcement in the coming days. Nearing completion of the latest project and I’m fairly sure you’ll never guess what it is!

A Soft River Near Mount Cook

Passport Su…Monday

If you’re a Passport Member then today you’ll get to see a new edit from New Zealand near Mount Cook. It was a pretty simple photo to process but you can see how I used the polarizing filter, which I almost never use. Enjoy!

Paradise

Passport Sunday

Uploading now… available Monday. Sorry for the delay! The NFT world is a fast-changing beast!

Daily Photo – Paradise

Only New Zealand would actually have a little town called Paradise. It’s not even really a town, but an area at the end of the road past Glenorchy that has a few farms and a few little places to rent. The hikes are unbelievable and you see scenes like this in every direction.

Tekapo Lupins

Daily Photo – Tekapo Lupins

In the Spring of each year, the lupins come out to play. Some local Kiwis don’t like them because they think of it as a weed. Well, as far as weeds go, they are pretty spectacular.

Mitre Peak in the Fjords

Daily Photo – Mitre Peak in the Fjords

The far southern tip of the South Island of New Zealand has an endless network of beautiful fjords. For some reason, this area is called Milford Sound, even though it’s technically a fjord. It’s beautiful any time of the year, but every now and then, if you are patient, you can see an amazing sunset.

Hawea

Daily Photo – Hawea

Lake Hawea is another beautiful and relatively unpopulated lake in New Zealand. Every time I drive over here to take photos, I think, “Wow I should really come over here more.”

Hobbiton

Daily Photo – Hobbiton

Most people know New Zealand from the Lord of the Rings movies. That’s how I first started thinking about moving here. What some may not know is that there is actually a Hobbiton with about 40 little hobbit holes on the North Island. Well… most doors are fake except for Bilbo’s home.

Milford Sound Dolphins

Daily Photo – Milford Sound Dolphins

I feel like seeing a dolphin is a bit like seeing a unicorn. They are so rarely seen, but these two came up to ride the wave in front of our boat. I get excited like a little kid when I see dolphins. Also, I think it kinda looks like they are holding hands.

MakersPlace Passport Sunday Deep Dive

If you’re a Passport Member then today, you’ll see a little bit about our upcoming MakersPlace drop. I’ve used three different marketplaces and have a little bit of insight into the advantages of one versus another. Note that we are not exactly sure when the drop will happen, but we’ve done all the work ahead of time so it’s ready when it hits.

Below is a screenshot from our first MakersPlace drop which I believe is almost sold out.

MakersPlace Drop

Here is the second video in the current series I’ve made about NFTs. In it I talk a little about our upcoming MakersPlace drop. I hope this is interesting and useful to you! 🙂

Moeraki Boulders

Passport Sunday… coming soon! (Monday!)

Daily Photo – Moeraki Boulders

These very unusual boulders are located over on the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand. I used to have a double major in Computer Science and Geophysics, so I’ve always been fascinated by weird stuff like this but I don’t actually know why these have this shape. I know I could look it up, but I prefer to wonder. Adults don’t wonder enough… it’s an important muscle to train.
