Sitting on a Bench and Watching the Sunset

Previous EG Talk

I don’t have my latest up… but here is the previous one that you might have missed the first time around.

Daily Photo - Sitting on a Bench and Watching the Sunset

I took this at the Post Ranch Inn one evening.  I went here after my last talk at EG to spend some time relaxing.  It’s not like the EG Conference was stressful or anything, but it is high-intensity.  I do like having periods of high-intensity followed by periods of low-intensity.  A nice sunset in the Big Sur area qualifies as one of those low-intensity events!

Girls in Tokyo

Tokyo Video

Here’s the first video I released from Japan… the music is pretty chill… from Patrick O’Hearn – I hope you like it as much as I do!

 

Daily Photo – Girls in Tokyo

This is one of my favorite areas of Tokyo.  The dressed-up girls are only one of the reasons!  Also, it’s the home of all sorts of crazy electronics, video games, gadgets, and other things that geeky guys from all cultures think is awesome.

These girls are all over the streets handing out little pamphlets and brochures for various goods and services.  Whatever you’re into, well, they’ve got a place for it… sweet Japan! :)

Castle for Sale

Trey’s Hangout #33

In this episode, the subject was ‘Social Media and New Opportunities for Artists,” and we had many excellent guests. Also, if you wait until the end (bonus time!), you can see a bunch of new photos from Virgin Gorda and I talk more about the Sony NEX-7.

Photo Mystery – How much to buy the castle?

Okay, other photo mysteries I post here are too easy for you… I’ll go ahead and tell you this place is in Iceland up in the northwest fjords near Isafjordur. So, today’s mystery is: “How much does this castle cost?”

I’ll tell you ahead of time that I don’t know the answer!  But maybe an enterprising Internet-person can figure it out! :)

Daily Photo – Castle For Sale

This is a somewhat dilapidated castle in Iceland, and it’s for sale!  I got out to hike around it and take photos, and I noticed a FOR SALE sign in front!  I mean, obviously this falls into the category of “fixer upper” — but look at the view!  I bet you can get it for a good price too…  Let’s see who can figure it out first!

Gardens in Paris

Gordon and his Panasonic

Gordon shows Thomas Hawk, and Karen Hutton the kit he chose for this trip to the US… It’s a quick little video I made in SF.

Traveling with a Pegasus

I’m not in Paris now (today’s photo is from earlier in the year), but I’m currently taking this 20-lb Thunderbolt Pegasus drive around with me for about 60 days.  It holds about 12 TB, but I do need access to all that data!  Since I’m on the road for such a long time, I simply need more data locally than I can successfully get onto my laptop or USB drives.  It’s a bit of a problem… I deal with lots of data and I can’t figure out a better way to do it.

If I only had 15 TB on the cloud that was instantly available… oh well… maybe someday… 2016 maybe?  I’ll mark my calendar and come back to see!

Daily Photo – Gardens in Paris

It was a cool and rainy morning when we left our hotel in the Latin district of Paris.  The rains stopped just as soon as we walked into the nearby gardens.  The sun would peek out from between the clouds and splash some extra light on the flowers below.

I took a bunch of photos before the sun came out, thinking it was the best I could do.  But then after the sun came out, I had to run around and re-create the exact same photos with the proper lighting!  So, it took us twice as long to get through the gardens… but that is not such a bad thing.

Daily Photo – Old Man on Steps near Drum Tower

While I was circling the Drum Tower in Beijing, there was a small community of people that were outside exercising, milling around, talking, and watching the world go by.  Many of the homes in the little houtong had their doors painted red, and that was a common element that tied everything together.  I had my hip-shooter with me too so I could capture this one.

And Nearby…

Here is the Drum Tower that I mentioned above…

Rickshaws at the Drum Tower I've visited Gǔlóu many times and never taken a photo.  I just couldn't figure one out.And then, this most recent trip, I walked around the tower several times until I finally got an idea.This is the giant drum tower built about a thousand years ago by Kublai Khan.  An enormous drum rests in front, and it was beat rhythmically to announce meetings. The temple sits in the Inner City to the north of Di'anmen Street.- Trey RatcliffRead more, including a preview of an exciting announcement, here at the Stuck in Customs blog.
