Now this isn’t something anyone really NEEDS, but they are pretty cool! Here’s a link!

Daily Photo – A pretty sunset on the edge of India

I was really happy to explore many remote coastlines along southern India. I suppose I intuitively knew that there were beaches galore, but you never really think of India as a beach destination… but one of our train stops included a sunset visit to this beautiful resort by the sea.

A Mustering near Glenorchy

From the Archives: Fake and Abandoned Disneyworld

Here’s an oldie but a goodie. Man, my camera work here REALLY sucked. Sorry about that. But it’s still a good creepy video from the olden days!

Daily Photo – A Mustering near Glenorchy

I had flown over with Choppy to spend the night with our families in the Greenstone area, across the lake from Glenorchy. It's pretty deserted over there. After we woke up, we took the chopper up for an amazing flight then landed near these horses. They were being moved from one ranch to another, so we followed them along and took photos all the way! Awesome!

Nightwalk around the Burj Khalifa

Wide-Angle Leaning

I still find people that get quite angry when I post photos like this where buildings are leaning this way and that. Of course, that’s an optical effect from aiming a wide angle lens up into the air. This look doesn’t bother me at all; in fact, most times I find it more interesting and cooler than straight up and down! Anyway, if people give you a hard time about this just channel your inner-Trey and ignore them.

If you ever make it to Dubai, this is one of my greatest ideas that I discovered by accident. Imagine you are traveling across the desert (which you are, I guess) and sleep during the day and walk at night! The city is extra-beautiful at night and it's about 600 degrees cooler. Try to circumnavigate the Burj Khalifa here… There are fountains, pools, statues, crazy lights and more… it's quite fun to see how many compositions you can make. :)

Picking Rice

Bali Fun

This photo below is from Bali and it just reminds me that I need to go back there! It was a very peaceful place… I’m into yoga and everything, and I found it very easy to get into the flow there. Maybe that was just in my head, and that seems like an arbitrary place to be.

Daily Photo – Picking Rice

Wow, that looks like back-breaking work. I find it challenging just to bend over to tie my shoes. It would be like tying your shoes, standing up, taking one step, then untying your shoes, then taking another step and tying your shoes again. I actually tried it for a while… I had a guy show me how to do it. One of the strangest things that I guess I didn't realize is that you are barefooted the whole time. It's really gooey in there… but it was nice to experience something so foreign to me but what millions of people do!

Hangry Kitty

Another Photo from Africa!

Here’s another photo from our new Becoming An Artist series! I took this when we discovered a pride of lions under a tree… I could watch these lions forever! Here’s a preview where you can see some of the lions in action.

Daily Photo – Hangry Kitty

I notice my little girls get hangry like this (hungry + angry). I do the same thing I would in these survival situations, just kind of toss meat on the ground and slowly back away.

Aurora Over the Valley

Aurora Borealis

Despite four trips to Iceland, I’ve never seen the northern lights! I’ve tried countless times… but on my list is to go up either there or Norway next winter to see them for sure!

Daily Photo – Aurora Over the Valley

I was driving home from a photo event from over the hill in Wanaka and I got to the edge of the crown range and saw this. So beautiful! The Aurora Australis is just incredible. In fact, when I got home, we got the whole family out on the deck on bean bags to watch it wash over us. So pretty and mesmerizing!

Japanese Beach Dress-up Party

Zen Playlist

Here’s a link for my “Zen Playlist” on YouTube!

Daily Photo – Japanese Beach Dress-up Party

I really like it when Japanese girls dress up in crazy ways. It just makes me smile for some reason. In fact, I don't know why Japanese girls don't wear something like cat ears or rabbit ears all the time just to keep people around them more happy.

Over the Marina area of Dubai

Another Dubai Photo

Pop over to my Facebook page to see another set of photos from Dubai. You can see a photo of me taking a photo too! :)

Daily Photo – Over the Marina area of Dubai

I'll never forget that amazing flight over Dubai with the door of the helicopter. We were loosely tied in with a belt that was attached to the ceiling. This allowed us to freely move about the cabin and go to either side of the chopper to get photos. We could also hang out quite far like I did when I took this photo!

Hiking in Glenorchy

Chromebook

I’ve never talked about my Chromebooks from Google, but I really like them! They are pretty inexpensive and we usually just leave one on the kitchen table for everyone to use.

Daily Photo – Hiking in Glenorchy

Well, I don't know if walking on totally flat ground can be called hiking, but I'll just be a little loose with that word. This is actually one of my favorite places to visit in Glenorchy and it's relatively new. It's there in the wetlands and they built this 10 km walking track through there. This was taken in the Autumn when things are particularly beautiful!

Thinking Peace on the Flight to Antarctica

Interview with Ugo

I met up with my friend Ugo Cei in Venice a few months ago and he recorded this interview over on his blog. Thanks, Ugo, that was fun!

Daily Photo – Thinking Peace on the Flight to Antarctica

That's my friend Stu Robertson there taking my photo while I take his photo on the way to Antarctica. That was a loooong flight for sure! We had a great time, though, running around that CL-130 taking photos all the way. I think it was about 10 hours to get down there from Christchurch! But we got to be friends with Randy, the loadmaster. We were warned not to take any photos on the plane before we got on, but we totally ignored that rule and Randy was mega cool with it. In fact, he's a photographer too and we even hung out in a few bars together! :)
