Mystery Location in Melbourne!

Best Stained Glass in the world?

Where do you think the best stained glass is in the world? Usually some of the best are in cathedrals and things of this nature, but I bet there are a few amazing displays that I’ve never even heard of.

Daily Photo – Mystery Location in Melbourne

Can anyone identify today's location?

There is a tiny bit of a trick to this photo. I just finished recording a little behind-the-scenes of how it was made… but kind of a cool trick if I do say so myself! It has to do with symmetry and getting everything right in the camera, which can be darn near impossible with structures like this!

Sydney Through the Glass

Your Favorite Science YouTube Videos?

I don’t know if you’ve seen my YouTube Playlists, but I’ve got a few different ones. I have kind of “photography” ones, but I also have Funny Playlists, Science Playlists, etc etc. What are your favorite science videos, I need to fill mine up with some more! I just added a cool one of a gravity demonstration that I saw on reddit… But I find that using playlists is a good way to remember my favorite YouTube videos.

Daily Photo – Sydney Through the Glass

Here I am in the Customs House visiting a beautiful restaurant. I liked the view from the balcony, but I liked it even better from indoors! The way the strange light bounced off the glass made my kinda happy and confused, so I though t it was a much more interesting shot.

Sydney from Above

Queenstown from Above

I did it! My first solo flight in a paraglider was successful! I also got a video of the thing I will share soon, but here is a quick shot I just took from the air over Queenstown with Google Glass:

Daily Photo – Sydney from Above

I love these models of cities! I should make it a point to visit models of cities whenever I am in the city itself. It’s often impressive and gives you a very nice feel for the organism of the whole city. This one was in Sydney, and it was Alexia Sinclair who first showed me this awesome place! She had an exhibit here about a year prior, and it was a spectacular venue for it!

The Circular Walkway in Brisbane

Hilarious Australian coastal Rivalries

I’ve noticed something about Australians that fascinates me. I don’t know if this is ALL Australians or not… and I hate to generalize… but… it’s been my experience so far…

They are all obsessed with one region of a Australia or another! I’ve heard so much contradicting stuff that I can’t make heads or tails of: “Oh my gawd – people from the Gold Coast! Can you believe!” or “Those people in Sydney, you know.” or “Melbourne – it’s like – I mean, come on!” or “Brisbane – now that is a place, well, you know.” It’s this kind of stuff over and over again. No matter where I go, a significant part of the conversation is quite analytical about people from another part of Australia. It’s the funniest thing and it cracks me up!

Daily Photo – The Circular Walkway in Brisbane

Here is one place we stopped on the wonderful photowalk in Brisbane. Thanks again everyone for a fun night! I ended up recording a little video too that the team is still editing together – will try to get that out soon!

Great time in Australia!

Brisbane PhotoWalk

Check out the event here on G+ to see photos from the great PhotoWalk!

Jogging with Glass on the Gold Coast

I’ve had a very weird schedule lately!! I went from the desert of the US to Australia for a speaking engagement then back to the desert of the US, then back home to New Zealand! So, whenever my body is all out-of-whack, I try to go out and get exercise and feel the natural vibrations of wherever I am. I decided to go out on the Gold Coast of Australia for a jog, and, just for kicks, I had an idea with Glass while doing it… This place is just a short ways from where I was staying there on the coast at the QT Gold Coast (highly recommended!) here’s the end of the little experiment. :)

More Glass Photos

Below are some photos that I took with Glass while on the run down the beach. This first one strange with the bikini-clad girl in the elevator – that was taken inside the QT Gold Coast!

Daily Photo – Brisbane Laser Light Show

We had an amazingly fun PhotoWalk in Brisbane! The people there were really nice and it was fun to talk with them about so many different topics. The photowalk ended here, at this most incredible laser light show in the middle of downtown on the river… Thanks again everyone! :)
