It looks to be an amazing time there in Monterey, and I put some more info below. I think I’ll plan a photowalk while there too (that will be free).
The EG Conference
There is more info on the EG Conference website, and I think there is a pretty good chance they will be recording a video that I can share here after the event.
I’m excited about this thing – it should be a blast! See that Freeman Dyson is going to be there? I’ve got a whole list of questions for him… like, in that episode of Star Trek The Next Generation, you know, the one with the Dyson sphere (“Relics” – Star Trek wiki), well, like, how did Scotty survive all that time in the transporter loop, and like, wouldn’t he lose some weight? And well, yes, I guess you wouldn’t know that, but, why would any species capable of building a Dyson sphere build it around an unstable star? I mean, that seems kinda dumb, right Dyson? Right?
But seriously, I will also have a free photowalk one evening there in the Monterey area. I’m not sure where exactly… maybe even over in Carmel, but I will announce that soon.
Daily Photo – Queenstown From Above
Ack! I miss Queenstown. When can I get back there? I need to make this happen.
My friend Gordon from Camera Labs (be sure to visit his site) goes up here to test a lot of his cameras and lenses. There’s a mountain here that you can reach by gondola, and the view is, well, as you can see, quite perfect! In this case, I used my new 28-300 lens, which worked out pretty well.
I’ve gotten to know the little town there pretty well. It’s fun looking down and knowing where I can get the best burger, the best chocolate, and five places that all serve great coffee. Jeez… just writing about it makes me want to go back even more!
