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!
Passport Sunday… coming soon! (Monday!)
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.
Right at the end of this 40km hike, we ended up here where all the pilgrims do. After having a big farewell dinner, we all went and had some more drinks, Then I headed out to take photos through the night till I was exhausted. I was already pretty tired just from the hike, but I used all the power I had left for one last sesh of photos.
Hey all you awesome Passport Members will get access to a new how-to video, just like every Sunday… or in this case, Monday. Today you’ll see my fairly extreme edit of this photo from Paris near the Louvre. Enjoy!
In today’s video, you’ll see me do a rather aggressive HDR treatment and then do some final alignment in Photoshop.
I took this around midnight one evening while I was meandering around Paris. It’s really such a beautiful city to get lost in. Here’s a hot tip, btw. A lot of times. these photos will come out quite “orange” so it’s good to set your camera’s white balance to Tungsten to push the colors back into the cooler area.
Are there any bad photos of Tokyo at night? Well, actually, yes, and I’ve taken most of them. Those are the ones I delete to hide my secret shame. But, every now and then, I get a cool shot like this and that makes me feel good about myself again before I start to swirl back down that shame spiral.
When we started the tour across Asia, we began here at the Ritz-Carlton in Hong Kong. It’s quite the showpiece! All of these hotels are nice, but this one was like extra-ritzy. This is one of the restaurants there called Tosca Di Angelo. The food was amazing and so was the photography options!
I’m usually too busy in these cities to go for a swim, since I’m running around with my hair on fire taking photos. I often think, gee willickers, I should really have a swim and a relax. But I almost never do! If I have a little extra time, I try to hit the gym, which I enjoy more than swimming. Now that I think about it, I don’t really like swimming much at all. But I do like playing in the pool with my kids!
