Huge YouTube Live Hangout Tonight!
See my Google+ Profile for more!
Come watch live tonight at 7 PM PT and 10 PM PT. Google+ is getting me a YouTube Live channel, so I am beyond excited… We will be discussing photography with all sorts of people — it’ll be great!
Just before the event starts, I’ll try to embed a live viewer here. In case it doesn’t work, just check my Google+ stream and you’ll see it there.
Amazing time with Tom
So if some of you follow me on Google+, you might have noticed I’ve gotten to be pretty good friends with Tom Anderson. Remember Tom from MySpace? He’s the guy that was your first friend on there. He eventually sold the company to Murdoch for $580 million. Since then, he’s been doing all sorts of things, but when Google+ got started, we both ended up in the Top 25 list. We got to be friends through there. I liked his clever writing and he liked my photos… Since then, he joined me at Burning Man and then for a week down in the south of China and we discovered a panoply of things we like about one another. Tom’s become very interested in photography, so it was a great time we had together down there… exploring this old town and photography together.
Daily Photo – The Ancient Town of Lijiang
This was a very long exposure — about five minutes or so. I did this so I could help make most of the people disappear from the scene. It also had a nice side-effect down in the river. People would light candles and float them downstream, and the path they followed came out as little golden streaks.
