More from Ibiza

Today’s daily photo is taken just outside of the old medieval area of Ibiza Town, but this one directly below is from just inside the main entrance to the old part of the city.

Exploring Ibiza at Night The old medieval town of Ibiza is an awesome place for exploration at night.  Every nook, cranny, alley, and cobblestone street was built for photography.  And it was doubly-awesome after a little rain gave everything a reflective sheen.After we finished dinner, we started the long walk back to the hotel.  It took 10x as long as normal with all the stops along the way.  But comon... how can you walk past something like this and not take a photo?   Impossible!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Daily Photo – B&W Foto

Here is one of the many interesting streets nearby the old medieval part of Ibiza Town. At first I was a little bummed out it was raining, but then I got excited because I knew it would add a certain texture to the photos. The only painful part is trying to carry around an umbrella and a camera system at the same time… a major drag!

Daily Photo – Ye Olde Blacksmithy

Okay THIS is a tough one, I hope. Who can figure out where this insane place is located?

I saw it from the street… a lot of glinting metal… and I had a feeling it would be pretty awesome inside… I was right!

The Rocky Spanish Coast

On the Facebook Wall

I was just at Facebook in New York City and I signed the Facebook Wall at Facebook! Can you find my name on there? There’s many other names on there too hidden around… like Madonna and Jimmy Fallon.

Ghosted Waters

As many of you know, I use Photomatix Pro (Photomatix Review) to process my photos. Often times, when combining multiple photos of waves, the water becomes “ghosted” as it averages out all the waves. I usually don’t really mind that, and I feel it gives the ocean a sense of painterly motion…. what do you think?

Daily Photo – The Rocky Spanish Coast

Here is another part of the beach in Ibiza. I guess I could have been off taking photos of topless Euros, but I found the rocks so much more interesting. This is the problem with photographers… whenever we see someone taking a photo of a girl, we are more likely to look at the camera than the girl! :)

The Skeletal Hallway

Live Show Later Today

I’m gearing up for the live show later today! :) It will be a little wild because I JUST moved into the new place here in New Zealand and I don’t even have my computer set up in the right room yet… so… it might be kinda wheels-off for a bit. We’ll see!

Just watch the blog here and the Live Embedded player will appear if you refresh around 7 PM PT.

Daily Photo – The Skeletal Hallway

While walking through one of the amazing Gaudi homes in Barcelona, we came upon this unique hallway. I didn’t have a tripod for my full-on treatment, so I did my best to see what I could get with a single RAW. Frankly, whenever I am forced into this situation, I’m still pretty happy with what comes from that single shot.

There’s a slight chance I’m going back to Barcelona later this year… if so, I’m going to schedule more time with Gaudi! :)

Spanish Streets at Night

A Fun Birthday!

I woke up this morning to find my kids had hung this over the fireplace. :)

We’re still renting a place here at the Commonage (best view in Queenstown!) until we move into the final house in a few weeks. Until then, we are making the most out of this fireplace because it is pretty cold in this city now in the middle of winter!

 

Daily Photo – Spanish Streets at Night

The old part of Ibiza is has a medieval layout where the inner city is ringed by a city curtain wall. Once inside, all the streets are narrow and twisty and lined with different kinds of stone. This looks back at the main entrance to the area.

I haven’t spent as much time in some of these ancient old cities as I would like. There is a lot of satisfaction in setting up for shots in these areas. It’s nice to take my time and compose this and that… I find great enjoyment in this!
