Daily Photo – Chair Hopping in Toronto

We took a boat over to Center Island (not the best name, Toronto) to get a view of the city at sunset. The island has had a lot of flooding lately, and getting over to the prime photo spots required getting ankle-deep in mud and muck. Toronto has the Adirondack chairs all over the place. I guess it’s one of the “things” about that city. Anyway, a lot of them were stuck out in the flooding zone. This island is also popular for Asian wedding photos (we saw about a dozen couples out there). This groom-to-be was getting in position for one of their photos…

The Road to the Misty Mountains

Trey’s 360 Podcast – Kevin Kelly on The Long Now

As we walk the Camino de Santiago Kevin Kelly (founding executive editor of Wired magazine, check him out on kk.org ) and I talk about his passion project, the long now. Put in very simple terms, how we can live in a way that will benefit our descendants.

Daily Photo – The Road to the Misty Mountains

Here’s a view of the road along the west coast of New Zealand as it heads into the Haast area. It’s absolutely epic and I want to do more road trips in this area! You would not necessarily know it from this shot, but the best thing about this part of New Zealand are the trees. There are some of the most Dr. Seuss looking trees as you drive along the road. They look even more surreal when they are framed in fog.

Daily Photo – Exploring The Vessel at Sunset

I think the best time to visit this artistic beast is while the sun is setting. While there, a good challenge is to see how many different sorts of shots you can. The obvious one is to capture the whole thing with a wide-angle lens, but some of the more interesting shots are zoom-ins like this one. It’s kind of fun for me to wait for people to be in interesting positions to make the whole thing seem more alive.

Along the Coast Near Haast

Updated Cityscapes and a new Podcast

Over on my Smugmug, I just updated my portfolio of city photos. Since I recently finished my tour of the USA and got to visit a bunch of new cities, I figured it was time to update that portfolio! Enjoy!

Daily Photo – Along the Coast Near Haast

I took a road trip up to Picton with Ethan to get him in and out of Outward Bound. There are two ways to get up there, and I chose the one that was just about an hour longer so I could head up the west coast. It’s wild and raw and hardly anyone takes that path… It was my first time to notice this incredible area where the Tasman Sea is undercutting the forest. Amazing, eh?

Trey’s 360 Podcast – Craig Mod on hiking, writing, Japanese culture and Leica

On this walk along a section of the Camino in Spain I’m with Craig Mod ( https://craigmod.com/ ). He’s a fantastic writer with some amazing content on walking (hikes) which you should check out… maybe start with his Review of Beds which is fun 🙂 Anyway, in this chat we discuss Craig’s various hikes through Japan and some of his observations on their varied culture. We also talk about his evolution from film cameras to ultimately opting for Leica as his main travel companion.

Enjoy!

Daily Photo – The Boston Harbor

As one of the sunsets was winding up, I decided to start criss-crossing the bridges to see different vantage points. It’s such an easy (and fun!) city to photograph. I ended up doing a few different long exposures, and this one turned out to be my favorite one.

Daily Photo – Museum Reflections in New York City

This area around the World Trade Center Memorial in New York City is absolutely beautiful. There are great shots in every direction. This particular one is taken along the windows at the big museum there. I didn’t go into the museum… although now I wish I would have because I had a bunch of people tell me online that it’s quite awesome inside! Oh well… next time!

The Public Library in Boston

Trey’s 360 Podcast – Dr David Sands on the wonders of zinc

Dr David Sands, as well as being a rather talented poet, is a professor of Plant Pathology, Bacteriology and Biocontrol of Weeds with Plant Pathogens. In this chat we talk a little about genes before moving on to the benefits of zinc. Then, as with all good science talk, we end with a poem.

Daily Photo – The Public Library in Boston

This is one of the coolest libraries I’ve ever visited! I was once again paranoid I’d be kicked out for taking photos, but they didn’t seem to mind at all! I didn’t take in my tripod because I don’t usually use it in the daytime. Besides, it was bright enough inside to squeeze off three brackets and make sure that my shutter speed was fast enough for no blur. My rule of thumb on that is to make sure my slowest exposure is at least 1/30th of a second!

Morning in Angkor Wat

Trey’s 360 Podcast – Fossil Hunting with Dr. Jack Horner in Yellowstone

You’ll probably want to check out the video version of this one but I’ll include the audio option as well. 🙂

Join Dr. Jack Horner (part of the inspiration for Sam Neill’s character in Jurassic Park) and I on a short exploration of Slough Creek where he explains the makeup of the landscape while we hunt for some fossils.

Daily Photo – Morning in Angkor Wat

I made it out to this amazing temple three mornings in a row to take photos. Each one was more beautiful than the last. One of my favorite bits was there were a bunch of young Cambodian boys running all over the place offering to bring me coffee. They have this coffee there that they mix with evaporated milk to make it extra creamy.

The Lightshow in Singapore

Psychedelic and MDMA research expanding at Johns Hopkins

Here’s a new article about psychedelic and MDMA research being done at Johns Hopkins Medicine. I think this is great stuff and I fully support it.

Trey’s 360 Podcast – Dr. Jack Horner on the Conscious Slime Mold

When he’s not discovering and naming Maiasaura, or advising on the Jurassic Park movies (where he was part of the inspiration for Sam Neill’s character) Dr. Jack Horner has some fascinating things to say about slime mold.

Daily Photo – The Lightshow in Singapore

Every night in Singapore there is a big light show with lasers and music and all sorts of stuff going on. There are thousands of good photos already, so I was running around trying to find a few unique angles to catch the action. Here’s one that I kinda like. This is the Marina Bay Sands hotel and that huge structure that goes across all three buildings is actually a swimming pool.

The Endless Forests of Malaysia

Fred the Dolphin

Today’s Podcast is a really fun walk with Fred Newman while we were staying at an awesome ranch in Montana. How do I describe this guy? He’s the sort of man that would not like any sort of description, I believe! But, in short, he’s one of the most amazing sound-effects and voice guys in the world. He’s very respected and you’ve probably heard his voice in everything from Doug to Men in Black to A Prairie Home Companion. From Wikipedia, regarding the latter, “In an audience favorite feature of the program, Keillor tells an apparently impromptu story that is funny because it requires Newman to strain to supply rapid-fire sound effects for unusual occurrences and obscure animals.”

Or if the audio version is more to your liking…

Daily Photo – The Endless Forests of Malaysia

One day we took a boat out to visit some floating markets on these winding rivers in Langkawai. After you get up high, you get a great perspective on how heavily forested (jungled? is that a word? Jungly?) this island is. It reminds me a lot of Vietnam or Cambodia in a way…
