The Hills – Stuck in Customs

Max Patte’s Horses at The Hills

Crazy Japanese Game

This is a “game” they play in Japan called Bo-Taoshi. It’s mostly done in the military. Click the video title to see the full frame, it’s worth it!

Daily Photo – Max Patte’s Horses at The Hills

We had a wonderful time strolling around The Hills during our photo workshop. I really enjoy seeing how excited people are when they see the unique art and sculptures spread around the course. Here, you can see one of my new besties out with these incredible horses that were designed and built by Max Patte.

Tree at The Hills

More Train Action in India

I never get tired of looking at these crazy train situations in India.

I guess this was the last train


Daily Photo – Tree at The Hills

I should spend more time taking photos at The Hills! It’s such a great place and perfect tableau for creating art. There are all sorts of cool sculptures all over the place, and this one is Michael Hill’s son, Mark. He has his studio very close by. Whenever I wander around, I stop by his studio to have a look at his latest creations. He’s a very inspiring guy, like his dad!

David Maxwell for Scale

Banned in China

I believe my blog is still banned in China, so they certainly won’t mind if I post this video about a man asking students from Peking University if they know what day it is.

Daily Photo – David Maxwell for Scale

Here’s my friend David Maxwell from last week at the New Zealand Autumn Workshop. We visited The Hills golf club in Arrowtown to see all the sculptures there… this is the newest one, with a Maxwell for scale.

The Hills

Africa and India Workshops

We’re loosely planning a workshop for India! Stay tuned to our workshops page to see what we have in store for you! 🙂

Daily Photo – The Hills

There are about a dozen perfect little ponds around The Hills golf course. Most of the time, they have perfect reflections as well. Michael Hill has been trying to talk me into making a full set of photos for the golf course, but I’ve been pretty busy lately. Maybe I’ll get around to it… it’s not a terrible idea!

Sleeping Pills

I’ve had a tough time getting to sleep in the last 6 months. That’s strange for me because I’m usually a great sleeper. I was able to assume the supine position and sleep inside of a few minutes before. Anyway, my doctor gave me these amazing pills that are like elephant tranquilizers. I only have 20 of them, so I’m trying to use one once every four days so I get a solid 8 hours to ctrl-alt-delete my body.

This is one of the newest sculptures at The Hills. This is kind of a decent photo, but it really fails to capture the scale of the piece. It’s huge! I think I’m gonna go back and take my daughter Scarlett for scale. I’ll have her sit on the shoe or something. Maybe I’ll have her hold a purse… I’m not sure. My mom said it looked like my friend Dave Gent; I didn’t have the heart to tell him that. Yes, they are both old men, but this guy looks a bit more grizzled than the smooth Arrowtown Silver Fox. Maybe I’ll have Dave Gent sit on the foot and hold a purse.
